Epperson Mountaineering

For years, every adventure pack Mark Epperson sold was built one at a time, by his own two hands, at his shop in Libby, Montana. His dedication to quality craftsmanship and top-of-the-line materials made Epperson Mountaineering backpacks a coveted commodity among serious adventurers—but even as business boomed, Mark made sure their high manufacturing standards never wavered. These days, each pack is still made by highly trained artisans right here in the US, and is designed with tons of retro outdoor details that call back to their '70s and '80s roots. Bold, colorful, and tough as nails, these packs give people something cool to look at while you pass them on the mountain.
