Osprey Adventure Proof Map-2

“The gladdest moment in human life, me thinks, is a departure into unknown lands” Sir Richard Burton

We know we are probably preaching to the converted here, but surely all our blog readers will agree there is nothing better than a good adventure.  The planning, the packing, the transport, the shared experiences, the highs and the lows, the peace and the frenzy, the adrenalin fuelled moments and the calm after the storm.  Also, ultimately, the memories and the changed perspectives.  Adventure travel is soul food and any ways that can be promoted gets a big tick in our book.

A few weeks ago we shared the Osprey Adventure Proof campaign because we loved the idea and the ethos behind this great initiative.  Osprey invited adventurers to apply for their ‘Around the World in 95 Litres’ adventure and the selected participants would receive a Transporter Duffle Bag and some money to fund their journey.  From the hundreds of pitches submitted 9 individuals were then selected and over the next 12 months they will be undertaking a broad range of epic adventures alongside three of our Osprey's top athletes.  

We have already become a little bit addicted to following their journeys and Osprey invite you to follow it too.  Their planned journeys will ultimately take them to over 35 countries and they are already over 15,000 kms in.  All the latest info is available via the Osprey website here and, if you look at the bottom of that page, you can even enter a competition to win a Transporter Duffle of your own.  They do come highly recommended - our recent Transporter review here should tell you all you need to know.
