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.
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.
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.
