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. Our first product is now considered the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.

Lowe Alpine Outcast 44

"The Outcast is branded as being 'the ultimate sport climbing backpack', but I'd go one step further and say that it could be the ultimate cragging pack" says Rob Greenwood.

Lowe Alpine Manaslu ND 50-65

There's nothing particularly special or ground breaking here, says Pegs Bailey, but the Manaslu is a sturdy and comfortable women's load carrier with enough features to keep most backpackers happy.
