“The backpack is the ultimate symbol of freedom. It represents the choice to drop everything, pack a bag, and head to the mountains. Lowe Alpine backpacks aren’t a throwaway piece of kit. Often kept for a lifetime, they become part of you. They represent every journey you’ve travelled and every adventure you’ve experienced on the way.
These memories become woven into the fabric of the pack itself. The pack becomes more than another piece of outdoor kit. It becomes a memory box, woven into your history. It holds not just your gear, but all your experiences as well, something you want to keep forever.”
This is how the American brand Lowe Alpine views the humble backpack. At first glance an innocuous object, but which hiker, hiker, climber does not recognize those words? How the backpack can stand for everything you have experienced on the road. And back home, looking at the backpack that is lying empty in the corner, waiting for you, you can see the images of the paths taken, mountains scaled, tops concurred, the views you have seen when the backpack was full. When at night you unpacked your home from it, how it fed and warmed you. And in the morning, everything you need is once again, stowed away, safely and steadily on your back. And you walk off, into a new day, a new experience with your backpack.
