Osprey PackSizer, the world’s first digital pack fitting tool has added another award to it’s stash – the 2014 Highly Commended award for Innovation of the year from The Great Outdoors (TGO) magazine, this joins the ISPO 2015 Communication award (mobile App category) already in it’s trophy cupboard.
Whilst recognition is always nice, the really impressive stat is that the app recently broke the milestone of 10,000 consumer downloads – despite only launching in March 2014 and we are told that it continues to receive hundreds of downloads every week. Nice work Osprey.
So how does it work? Using the camera in your device, the Osprey PackSizer measures and matches your torso size and gender to your ideal pack size across the entire Osprey range – in 3 easy steps:
1: Take a full-length photo of your body
2: Mark your height on the photo
3: Locate your upper and lower torso points
For first time users, the PackSizer includes step-by-step video tutorials which demonstrate how to use the app. Once your size has been determined, you can view the sizing results of every Osprey pack that ideally fits your body measurements. The app can also send your personal results to you via email.
The app is available in English, German and French. To download the PackSizer app for free click here or search ‘Osprey PackSizer’ on the Apple app store or on Google Play.
