Osprey and Hyosung announced their collaboration for spring 2021.
The leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions will feature Hyosung’s new GRS certified, 100% recycled Mipan regen robic high-tenacity nylon in its best-selling, multi-sport Talon/Tempest series, which has been completely redesigned and expanded for spring 2021.
Mike Simko, Hyosung Global Marketing Director, says, “As a solutions provider, we are proud to partner with such a legendary outdoor brand as Osprey to help realize its vision of developing a sustainable pack that its customers will feel good about purchasing and carrying.”
Hyosung’s regen robic nylon is made with 100% reclaimed waste, which saves valuable resources from being removed from the earth. According to Simko, for every kilo of recycled nylon Hyosung makes, six to seven kilos of CO2 eq. of Global Warming Potential are saved. Osprey’s new Talon/Tempest features one of the first commercial uses of this innovative fabric.
Mark Galbraith, Vice President of Product, Osprey, says, “Supporting technological advancements in recycled materials is critical to busting the myth that recycled materials means reduced performance. Regen recycled high-tenacity nylon allows us to both bring recycled material into our premium Talon/Tempest series while improving its technical performance and durability. We see it as win, win for the end user and the environment.”
Osprey’s Talon/Tempest series will be available for consumer purchase worldwide this spring 2021.
