Do nothing in haste, wrote Edward Whymper after his first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1868, look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end. We took Mr. Whymper’s words to heart as we designed this Knapsack: simple and well thought out — like the ones we see him wearing in old engravings from the Golden Age of Mountaineering.

Small but practical

When I first looked at this knapsack I thought 'no way-it's much too small'. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by its capacity. Materials and construction are first rate. My only criticism is this: the flap seems a bit too narrow. When the bag is packed full it doesn't quite cover the opening. Still, it is proving to be very practical.

This was a birthday gift for my son he loved it.

Size was perfect for a day hike or camping necessities!

EDC/ Man-purse

As a shorter fella 5'4 this is the unicorn of backpacks. I was lookin for a bag that wouldn't take over my whole back and still fit what I need (change of clothes, water, snacks). I basically treat it as a man-purse while its comfort and rugged look still allow me to feel... well.. like a man.

Knapsack

This is a simple, fantastically built product that is quite likely going to outlast me in durability. The colors online do not do it justice, it is more of a dark forest green that is very handsome. It is cavernous and I pleasantly discovered it could hold more than I’d expected without being too much bag. I took too long before pulling the trigger on this one but couldn’t be happier now I have.
