Lowe Alpine is an independent backpack specialist dedicated to creating world-class carry systems. Lowe Alpine packs are designed to excel in motion, whether you’re pushing your limit in the mountains, multi-day trekking or racking up the air miles. From pivoting hip belts to bespoke female-specific fit, every element of our design process answers one simple question: will it improve your life on the move?
Our carry systems are designed to move with you; precise, considered ergonomics inform fit and unique features that promote freedom of movement are built into our designs to further improve the carry. We have an insatiable desire for progress, for building better packs that help people to push the boundaries of what is possible.
In 1967, Greg Lowe designed, tested and launched the Expedition pack from Lowe Alpine Systems, a revolutionary backpack that gave climbers more freedom of movement in the mountains. It 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.
