This design originated from one of Dan Madden’s personal packs. It’s based on a classic book bag with the addition of some features that are needed in the backcountry. Dan used this pack for almost 20 years on day hikes in the Rockies. It’s a great pack for stashing the basics like a rain shell and gloves, a water bottle and small camera.
Burning candles for spiritual purposes dates back to ancient times. Our mascot The Pack Rat directs the mountain traveler to return safely from his adventure. The royal blue wax color represents the seeking of truth in the mountains and our loyalty to our colleagues. Light this candle whenever you or your loved ones are traveling into the mountains. This was made for us by a traditional family-owned candle factory that has been operating in the US for over 70 years.
