Colorado pack brand Osprey and Seoul, South Korea-based fiber manufacturer Hyosung announced a collaboration for Spring 2021 whereby Osprey 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.
Hyosung’s regen robic nylon is made with 100% reclaimed waste. According to said Mike Simko, Hyosung global marketing director, 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 fabric.
“Supporting technological advancements in recycled materials is critical to busting the myth that recycled materials means reduced performance,” said Mark Galbraith, vice president of product for Osprey.
