With Osprey, it's not just about a new design to carry the laptops, tablets, eReaders and smartphones that have become integral to our lives. It’s about interacting with them in a quick and dirty way.
The Port series from Osprey, which debuted at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market and are scheduled to hit stores in September, have a wealth of organization features. The “port” models feature a Port™ window to allow use of a tablet without removing it from the pack.
A cool design feature is the PowerHouse™ Add- On™ zippered case that organizes all your power cords, battery packs and USB drives. It’s included with the Cyber, Pixel and Beta and is also sold separately. The Portal series from Osprey includes:
Pixel ($139): A flap-style daypack with a padded laptop compartment, zippered expansion to add four extra liters of volume, under-flap zippered organizer pocket, lower zip compartment with removable PowerHouse™ cord organizer. 2lbs, 1oz
Pixel Port ($119): Another flap-style daypack that offers direct access to your tablet via a window under the flap. 2lbs, 1oz
Cyber ($129): Panel-style daypack with padded laptop compartment with direct top zip access, lower zip compartment with removable PowerHouse™ cord organizer. 1lb, 14oz
