Best Rated Osprey Backpacks for Men


Here you have the list with 20 best rated Osprey backpacks for men, all of them Amazon best-selling items and with very good reasons. Keep reading.

Why Osprey

Osprey is arguably the top brand in the outdoor backpacks industry. They started in California in 1974 by Mike Pfotenhauer who is still leading the company. They build only backpacks and in this sense they are similar to the Gregory brand.

This is one of just a few brands that build separate packs for men and packs for women. But they also have a number of outdoor backpacks that are essentially unisex and you will see some in the list below. Typical examples are Osprey Daylite and Osprey Daylite Plus packs.

But those packs that are built specifically for men always have its counterpart for women. So, for example, you will see some packs like Stratos, Atmos, Talon, Aether, Kestrel, and those are typical Osprey backpacks for men. The corresponding backpacks for women are respectively Sirus, Aura, Tempest, Ariel, and Kyte.

The backpacks for men have a wider shoulder harness construction, the hip belt is differently shaped, the lumbar padding may be different, the torso size range is different because of the difference in the body size, the colors are different. All in all, this is about comfort which such men’s specific packs offer, and it makes sense going for a gender-specific backpack if this is possible.

I hope you will appreciate the full beauty and features of Osprey packs in this short video which presents the Kestrel & Kyte series, have a look:

What is in the list

The list includes Osprey’s most popular backpacks on Amazon, so these are all true Amazon best-selling items in the corresponding categories, collected from various departments on Amazon.

The packs in the list are in all sizes, from small daypacks for hiking to the large expedition and backpacking packs. If you are not familiar with this brand, you might be puzzled with the letters AG in the names of some of the packs. So just to know that this means ‘anti-gravity’, and this describes a unique back-panel design which includes a continuous mesh that covers the back of the pack and goes seamlessly all the way to the hip belt and lumbar area.

There is nothing even remotely similar to this design on the market, this is a completely unique design introduced by Osprey several years ago in their large backpacking models, and they have been introducing it into many smaller packs as well.

The prices are updated daily and many of the packs in the list are Amazon Prime items. This means that you can have it shipped for free and very quickly. You might want to check also our separate text with Osprey packs on sale. See also the new Osprey Archeon packs series for men and women.
