With the ability to crank out approximately 100 fabric masks per day, Colorado backpack brand Osprey Packs is using its warranty and repair team to support COVID-19 front-line workers by making durable and washable masks that can be used in tandem with N95 medical-grade masks.

“In this unprecedented time, I am inspired by our team’s response,” said Layne Rigney, President of Osprey Packs. “While our product team is committed to developing future season’s products, our repair team is mobilizing all of their efforts to support our regional healthcare workers. The repair team is giving our entire company something to be proud of and we hope this inspires others with available resources to take similar action.”

Osprey will distribute masks to Cortez’s Southwest Memorial Hospital and City of Cortez employees first; then it will work with the Governor’s office of Colorado to get masks to the rest of the state, with the effort ongoing as long as it’s needed.
