Backpacks, Travel Luggage & Accessories Since 1967
Lowe Alpine design backpacks, travel luggage and accessories that inspire people to seek out adventure in the mountains.
In 1967 Greg Lowe designed a backpack that revolutionised how people carried gear into the mountains. He named that pack ‘The Expedition’ – It is now considered to be the world’s first, modern backpack. It was the first pack to ever feature an internal frame, side compression and a sternum strap – all features of technical backpacks today.
50 years’ later Lowe Alpine remain committed Greg Lowe’s visionary product design ideology. The packs the team design challenge convention. They set a standard that others follow. They always remain functional, tough and comfortable to carry.
