A household name in the world of climbing, Greg Lowe, designed an expedition backpack that would revolutionise the world of climbing. With an internal frame system and tapered shape, the pack allowed for exceptional freedom of movement, ideal for mountain climbers. Fast forward a few decades and Lowe Alpine has become the singular specialist dedicated to pushing the boundaries of carrying systems for those who live life in motion.
The Lowe brothers, all renowned climbers spent much of their youth in the mountains. Durning their 20s the brothers had become some of the leading climbers of their generation, pushing the boundaries of big wall and mountain ascents. However, they came to discover an issue with the standard external frame backpacks of the time. From being overweight, unstable it restricted their performance in the high mountains.
In 1967 the brothers designed, tested and developed the Expedition Pack from Lowe Alpine Systems.
