The brand Lowe Alpine was born from the heart and spirit of one of the world's greatest climbing families.
Greg, Mike and Jeff Lowe were raised on the move, spending their childhoods climbing, skiing, hunting and hiking. At the age of twenty, the Lowe brothers were the leading climbers of their generation, but they ran into a wall: the outdoor backpacks available to them at the time were too heavy and unstable to advance further into the mountains. They realized that they needed a new type of bag that could carry the equipment more safely, while allowing them to move more freely over difficult terrain.
In 1967, Greg Lowe designed, tested and launched the Lowe Alpine Systems Expedition pack, a revolutionary backpack that gave climbers greater 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 model from which all modern technical backpacks are derived.
