There is a reason that some people have to buy a new backpack every year, and that reason is because they did not buy Osprey backpacks. Osprey backpacks don't just claim to have the toughest, longest lasting, and most awesomely equipped backpacks on the market, they back it up. There might be other backpacks that try to lay claim to the toughest backpack on the block, but they are just blowing steam. Osprey makes their backpacks not only the sturdiest, but they are loaded with all the bells and whistles you want from your backpack. Osprey has your back any time you need them.
