The name Kailas is derived from the name of the holy Tibetan mountain Kailash. Mt. Kailash rises out of the ground near the source of some of Asia’s longest rivers and is regarded as a sacred place by four religious. Every year religious pilgrims make the journey to Mt. Kailash, following the traditions of their ancestors dating back thousands of years. The rugged terrain, high altitude and harsh weather all contribute to the difficulties of pilgrimage, but those who choose to take it on remain undeterred. The will to complete this spiritual journey is beyond imagination. It is an undertaking that expresses humankind’s search for freedom, which is the philosophy and passion Kailas lives by.
Kailas products currently range from climbing gear to outdoor sporting essentials. Kailas’ love and passion for climbing drives us to develop the most reliable, highest quality products with the latest technology.
Kailas shares the passion with the climbing community by proudly partnering with IFSC, FFCAM, and CAC. Since the founding of company, we have initiated multiple mountaineering and expedition projects to develop and expant access to climbing across China and other countries.

Since Osprey was founded in 1974, every single product design bearing the Osprey name has passed through the hands of owner and founder Mike Pfotenhauer, undergoing relentless scrutiny. From stitching the first lines of custom-fitted packs, to meticulously designing innovative products with intuitive features, to forging personal relationships with the sewing operators who construct the packs, Mike has been the unbreakable thread that makes Osprey a company like no other.
Mike says his innovative designs and commitment to top-notch manufacturing shows in every product, even, or especially, decades later. “Osprey is, in large part, about exceptional relationships,” says Mike. “Between the pack and its wearer. The pack and its makers. The company and its staff.” He continues, “So many of our staff have been with the company for decades. It shows how fervently we believe in our process and products. The All Mighty Guarantee proves it.” No wonder there’s such a close relationship between the words “Osprey” and “quality”. You could say it’s a lifetime commitment.
