Lowe Alpine Backpacks

_DSC5725Bernina3500 copy copyLowe Alpine have been growing for over half a century, starting out with the Lowe brothers looking for better outdoor gear. In 1967, the first rucksacks were created in their Utah basement, aiming for a backpack suitable for their demands as international climbers and alpinists. At the time, backpacks were stiff and uncomfortable, but Lowe Alpine introduced the world to internally framed backpacks with compression straps; a blueprint for all modern day rucksacks.

Over the years, Lowe Alpine has passed through multiple owners, but the designs and processes stay true to the original vision of creating innovative, practical packs that work in any condition, for any activity. With countless awards and commendations from mountaineers all over the world, Lowe Alpine are a true favourite of walking.org.

Aside from a range of colours and sizes, the Aeon also caters for both men and women’s bodies with different contours and details.

The Aeon features one of Lowe Alpine’s famous back systems; the AirContour. With a highly ventilated, full-contact back system, it’s supportive and body hugging whilst still allowing air circulation to keep your back cool and sweat free. With multi-lock attachment systems to fix all sorts of accessories with ease, the backpack is incredibly versatile. The modern design also fits in with the flexion harness for the perfect body contour, and spreads the load evenly.
