Macpac are a New Zealand born outdoor brand who specialise in designing and manufacturing camping and travel equipment. Macpac's backpacks and tents are meticulously designed for the end user, ranging from simple day packs to highly technical alpine bags and high performance lightweight camping shelters...
The Macpac legacy began back in 1973 when Bruce McIntyre started to make backpacks out of his parents' garage in Christchurch, New Zealand. He was looking to create packs that were practical, technical and rugged. To this day, Macpac has remained true to that desire and extended their range to apparel and camping equipment. If you are looking for a backpack and tent brand that has grown up and matured in the outdoors, Macpac should be a strong consideration as they continue to design with purpose; engineering each design to withstand the challenges of 4-season use.
In their own words, this is the Macpac Manifesto:
At Macpac we want to share the outdoors. Get out there and be part of the adventure, JUMP IN, get involved. We live in one of the best places on Earth, we say CHERISH FREEDOM and go explore. We ENCOURAGE CURIOSITY, go and GET LOST in your thoughts, in nature. Our planet is irreplaceable, look after it for future generations, LEAVE NO TRACE when you leave.
