A classic in the cult of heritage packs, the KNAPSACK can be found from Tokyo to New York to Zurich. We started making this pack in ‘78 and we have kept producing it with virtually no changes for about 40 years. The Knapsack now has a padded back panel for additional comfort when carrying outdoor or city gear. It’s a great simple bag for carrying simple stuff.
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.
MADE IN USA
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.
