He designed and sewed custom and made-to-order backpacks for travelers in the store he opened in Santa Cruz, California during the early years of the brand.

As of 1987, Osprey began wholesale, and Mike Pfotenhauer handed over the manufacturing process to competent employees, and he focused on new product development and design. Then, Mike Pfotenhauer and his business partner and wife Diane Wren decided to move to Dolores, Colorado and opened their new production facility built in the 1920s as a Ford Model-T factory.

Famous for their hiking backpacks designed with user needs in mind, the brand moved its manufacturing facility to Vietnam. Mike and Diane moved to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam in 2003 to closely control production standards and not compromise on product quality.
