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.

A classic in the cult of heritage packs, the KNAPSACK can be found from Tokyo to New York to Zurich.
