Backpacks and Rucksacks

We've been winning awards for our backpacks and rucksacks since 2005. Innovate multi-sport backpacks to run, hike, climb and ride. Our guiding principles are to minimise weight, maximise freedom of movement with hip/chest straps for load-carrying comfort and stability. Gourdon is our iconic multi-sports waterproof backpack for commuter cycling to mountain marathons, think of it as a dry bag with shoulder straps. With a complete custom design service available we design and make bespoke packs here in our own factor for Arctic adventures to El Capitan and Mountain Rescue. Get in touch to find out more about custom backpacks and rucksacks.
