The Osprey® Daylite Family embodies versatility for brands who want to make a bold and memorable statement with maximum impressions. Including styles that are technical enough for the trail but also casual enough for travels abroad, weekend getaways or workday commutes. This combination of technical, lifestyle and travel make Daylite® packs perfect for every day.
Daylite® Family Refresh
The lightweight, simplicity, durability and comfort of the Osprey® Daylite Series also makes these packs a top seller for the brand year after year. In fact, in 2020 it led Osprey® packs in retail in sales as their #1 lifestyle series. (1) This year the line has been refreshed to include refined features and an enhanced commitment to Osprey’s® promise of sustainability. Key improvements include:
- Two new styles! The #16171 Osprey® Daylite Tote Pack and the #16172 Osprey® Daylite Cinch
- Upgraded material to bluesign®-approved main bodies and GRS-certified polyester fabrics with PFC-free DWR finish
- Daypack styles now have AirScape™ backpanels for added comfort, plus a softer yoke and shorter backpanel for a more flexible and inclusive fit range
- The #16173 Osprey® Daylite Duffel grab handles and Daypack yoke handles are sized to work as pass-through luggage handles
- The #16174 Osprey® Daylite Sling now has an ambidextrous fit and carry for left OR right shoulders
In place of virgin nylon, all styles in the Osprey® Daylite Series are now made with body fabrics that contain bluesign®-approved materials, GRS-certified recycled materials and PFC-free DWR. (2) Not only are the materials more sustainable, but they also offer more durability than their predecessors to handle years of everyday wear and tear.
Used worldwide, bluesign® is a system that manages the impact textile production has on chemicals, people, factories and the environment. Materials carrying the bluesign®-approved label meet strict ecological and toxicological requirements. Osprey incorporates as many bluesign®-approved fabrics as possible and submits materials to third-party labs for analysis and spot checking.
GRS-certified Recycled Materials
Osprey uses the Global Recycled Standard (GRS), an international voluntary product standard, for third-party verification of their high-quality, durable recycled content. Every time Osprey chooses recycled over virgin materials; they reduce their carbon footprint by 45-50 percent.
From water repellants to dyes, chemicals are necessary to create durable and high-quality products. Osprey uses the lowest impact, safest and highest-performing chemicals and have shifted all chemical durable water repellant (DWR) to PFC-free. They also practice responsible chemical management through strictly audited compliance. (3)
