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.
Crafted with Polartec® Power Wool, this is a refined top for alpine pursuits. By isolating a merino wool interior and a synthetic fiber exterior, this hybrid fabric optimizes wicking, breathability, odor resistance and durability. The design includes a 4-button placket for ventilation and underarm gussets for easier movement.
This is the “one” pack that is needed for almost all activities in a mountain town. It is sized for hikes above tree line, flexible enough for adventure trail rides, and stiff enough for side country skiing. The design and materials encompass all that we have learned in over 40 years of pack-making and is constructed to last for decades of use.
From 1981, this is the original convertible briefcase/daypack. There’s a leather handle for carrying like a briefcase and there are hide-away backpack straps for when you’re on the move. A very sturdy everyday bag, it’s great for quick overnight trips, too. The Getaway pack is practical, versatile and durable.
