Lowe Alpine’s journey started in 1967, when the Lowe brothers produced their very first rucksacks in their Utah basement to fulfill their own personal needs as alpinists and climbers; today, they are internationally recognised for producing world-class carry systems. The Lowe brothers’ first backpack revolutionised the outdoor industry, producing a well needed breath of fresh air from the stiff and uncomfortable, externally-framed packs; instead offering innovations such as the very first internal frame, adjustable back system and side-compression straps. Though ownership of Lowe Alpine has been passed over the years, the Lowe brothers’ original vision has remained at the heart of the brand - to create practical, innovative products for use in extreme conditions. One of our favourites, the Altus 32, is a 4 season weather-proof pack designed for long hikes. Loaded with innovative features such as the Air Contour back system and HydroShield fabric; the Altus 32 can handle anything the great outdoors can throw at it year round.
