“Our innovations are simply a byproduct of necessity” – Mike Lowe

 

In 1967 Greg Lowe was desperate for better gear for his climbing & mountaineering exploits. He needed a backpack that could carry his gear securely but let him move freely on technical and demanding terrain. He designed ‘The Expedition Pack’, it featured the first internal frame, compression straps and other never seen before features. Our first product is now considered the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.
