The Archeon 28 has the same sleek design as the roll-top Archaeon 25 and the all-new zip-top Archeon 24, making it smart enough to carry in the big city as well as the great outdoors. It’s a do-it-all pack for someone who wants an urban and uncomplicated silhouette coupled with the top-lid access of a more conventional hiking pack. Inside it’s got a padded laptop pocket and key clip for security, while the external bottle pockets and lid compartments make it easy to get at the stuff you need quickly. The 28 litres of space and lashing loops on the lid give the Archeon 28 a decent amount of carrying capacity, and it’s got a detachable hip belt and an adjustable, breathable back system that will keep you cool and comfortable if you do choose to carry a slightly heavier load
The Osprey story started in California in the 1970s, with one man, a sewing machine and a vision to make the world’s best outdoor packs. Today, it’s one of the most recognisable rucksack brands, relied on by athletes like Olympian Victoria Pendleton and elite mountaineers like Himalayan record-breaker Nirmal Purja.
All of Osprey's packs share the same twin hallmarks of fit and comfort. In fact, Osprey was an early adopter of breathable mesh, ergonomic hip-belts and packs designed specifically to fit women. Breathable back panels are still a feature of all their packs, and all except their most lightweight bags come with adjustable back-lengths for a perfect fit.
And in a world where outdoor enthusiasts are increasingly conscious of our environmental impact, many Osprey packs are made from durable recycled fabrics, while all feature PFC-free water-repellent coatings.
