HISTORY OF LOWE ALPINE. In 1967 Greg Lowe was desperate for better gear for his climbing & mountaineering exploits. He needed a backpack that could carry his gear securely but let him move freely on technical and demanding terrain. He designed ‘The Expedition Pack’, it featured an internal frame, compression straps and other never seen before features. This first product is now considered the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.
The above ones are identical to the ones my wife and I have used on many Caminos. Therefore I can recommend them, although at 1.5 kg there are lighter ones. We both like the top as well as side access features. Check the link to check Lowe Alpine’s range of backpacks.
