Lowe Alpine started out with two brothers making their own equipment for their climbing activities. Greg and Jeff Lowe were climibing enthusiasts and found the regular equipment wanting. Their started to make rucksacks, taking their special needs into account. That first Expedition Pack was pretty revolutionary. Before then, backpacks used external frames and were stiff, painful and carried like a torture device. Greg’s design featured the first internal frame, first adjustable back system, first side compressors, first sternum strap and first load stabilizers. All now considered industry standards, but back then truly groundbreaking.
Lowe Alpine is now a leading worldwide manufacturer of outdoor gear, yet still creating new solutions to old problems. This is equipment used in the world’s wildest places, where gear failure is not an option.
