The Waypoint 65 comes with a detachable daypack for short hikes or daytrips.
Things at Osprey move full circle, starting with the people, moving to the product, and then back again to the people for the lifetime of the product. Company founders Mike Pfotenhauer and Laurie White started the company in 1974 in Santa Cruz, California, introducing such features in the next few years as breathable mesh panels, custom-fit internal frame mountaineering packs, and slide adjustable chest straps. The company moved to a former Gore-tex factory in Dolores, Colorado, in 1990, and then to Cortez, Colorado, in 1994. Nestled in the corner of the rugged San Juan mountains and on the edge of vast sandstone canyon country, the Cortez landscape provides the Osprey team with constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for the packs.
The remainder of the team, including Osprey founder and head designer Pfotenhauer, reside in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Surrounded by heat, endless bustle, and vibrant energy, Team Vietnam designs and builds Osprey packs to the company's exacting standards. Living in HCM City provides many benefits, including the ability to ensure fair labor standards for the company's employees and establish face-to-face relationships with the factories that build the company's packs. Osprey's mission is to create innovative, high-performance gear that reflects the employees' love of adventure and devotion to the outdoors.
