The Lowe Alpine brand was born from the hearts and minds of one of the greatest climbing families on earth.
Greg, Mike and Jeff Lowe were raised on the move, spending their childhood climbing, skiing, hunting and hiking. By their twenties, the Lowe brothers were the leading climbers of their generation and realised that they needed a new kind of pack that could carry gear more securely, whilst letting them move more freely on demanding terrain.
In 1967, Greg Lowe designed, tested and launched the Expedition pack from Lowe Alpine Systems, a revolutionary backpack that featured an innovative internal frame, compression straps and other never before seen features. This pack changed the outdoor industry forever, becoming the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.
To this day, Lowe Alpine packs continue to be designed to excel in motion, whether you’re pushing your limit in the mountains, multi-day trekking or racking up the air miles. Their carry systems are designed to move with you; precise, considered ergonomics inform fit and unique features that promote freedom of movement are built into their designs to further improve the carry.
Lowe Alpine have an unwavering commitment to building durable packs that won’t let you down. They only use high quality components and robust manufacturing techniques, so you can rely on your Lowe Alpine pack trip after trip, year after year.
