One of the trends of the moment is the mountain backpack created in a functional way also to be used in everyday life.
BDL has always been quick and attentive to trends and news and wanted to enter the sector with a straight leg.
There are many brands that have supported this mood, such as Herschel or Sandqvist.
But which is the coolest brand of all?
Well, everyone has his tastes but if we have to make a name, let's say Epperson Mounaineering. Proudly made in the United States, in Montana, these backpacks are born as professional products for climbing. The taste is decidedly 70s, they are made entirely of cordura, with great care for the smallest finishes. The attention to detail and bright color combinations, as well as the iconic shiny steel hook make them desirable objects even for hikers in metropolitan cities.
A bit of healthy history and culture that we like ...
Mark Epperson, a wise man who loves the mountains, founded Epperson Mountaineering in 1973 in Montana. Mark's vision then is the same as today; he couldn't find any other backpacks that met his demanding need for high quality backpacks. He believed that by using the highest quality materials, handcrafted craftsmanship and innovative functional designs he could make fantastic backpacks to be proud of.
Thus, he ambitiously embarked on a never-ending quest to create the perfect backpack. Gradually, as word spread about Mark Epperson's backpacks, local outdoor enthusiasts searched for the packages and consumer demand grew, so much so that Mark eventually opened his own retail store in Libby, Montana. , where he made all the packages by hand one by one.
But as demand outstripped supply, Mark trained artisan pack makers to create Epperson Mountaineering backpacks for local people and consumers around the world.
Today, all Epperson Mountaineering products are still made in the USA by artisan packaging manufacturers with the finest components such as 1000 denier Cordura, YKK zippers, mil-spec tubular webbing or unique Indian / oval pattern webbing and internal compartments reinforced with sealed seams to ensure long-term strength and durability.
Honoring Mark's wishes for everlasting quality, all Epperson Mountaineering products are continually, individually scrutinized with careful attention to detail and persistent reflection on new ways to enhance Meg Company's ubiquitous backpack and other personal accessory products in California. .
Soon, indeed very soon you will find them from Blog don't Lie both on the website and in the shop in Pompiano, which certainly isn't Montana but it's cool anyway.
