WHY WE DEVELOPED EXTENDED FIT

It's always been our goal at Osprey to build products that inspire adventure–something we believe everyone deserves to enjoy regardless of size, race, gender or identity. To us, Extended Fit is a critical piece to that puzzle, filling a gap for adventurous spirits who've long been left out of the outdoor industry's big picture. we don't just want to see that change–we're innovating to be a part of it.

FAQ ABOUT EXTENDED FIT (EF)

Q - Do Extended Fit packs cost more than other sizes?

A - Not at all! We firmly believe that there's no reason to charge people more, just for having a bigger body. Extended Fit is just a new sizing option to help more people find comfort, joy and adventure outdoors-not an upsell.

 

Q - What if I fall between Extended Fit and your Standard Fit sizes?

A - There is some overlap between our Extended Fit sizing and our other sizing. If you fall within this overlap, you may consider whether you'd benefit from any of the Extended Fit features, such as repositioned hipbelt pockets or extended shoulder straps, to help decide what would be most comfortable and effective for you. Of course, nothing beats trying packs on in store.

 

Q - How do I know which Extended Fit size I should order?

A - While some Extended Fit packs come in one size, there are several with different EF size options. These sizes refer to the torso length of the pack, not your waist size or chest size. If you have a shorter torso length, a smaller pack size will likely fit you best. People with longer torsos will find that larger pack sizes fit best. Visit our Size Guide for guidance on measuring your torso or visit a retailer for help.

 

Q - Where can I buy Extended Fit packs?

A - Extended Fit packs are available at select retailers, where you can try on different packs and sizes with the help of a trained employee. Find a retailer near you and call ahead to confirm inventory. Extended Fit is also available online at osprey.com where we offer free shipping and returns so you can find the right size for you from the comfort of home, hassle free.
