Our founder, Wayne Gregory, was born with a simple passion to design backpacks he could trust on the most ambitious of life adventures. He did this by pioneering new suspension systems that work with your body instead of against it, paying relentless attention to men’s and women’s fit, and inventing new materials and construction techniques. Wayne’s unique approach to design gave him the confidence to offer his famous lifetime guarantee, which we still honor to this very day.
Over the next four decades, Wayne’s obsession with innovation, performance, and comfort guided our evolution into a world-leading bag company, trusted for adventure in over 45 countries. We have been the recipients of countless innovation and product awards, but most importantly, our packs have been worn on millions of life adventures and have created a million smiles along the way!
With South Africa’s vast mountain ranges and exceptional trails, it only makes sense that the world’s best hiking pack maker came to make an impact in the hiking community.
WE ARE MAKERS AT HEART
Our packs are designed with hand-crafted prototypes made by skilled artisans at our headquarters in Salt Lake City, USA. We use cutting-edge technology and forward-thinking backpack solutions to make the most streamlined and reliable technical packs on the market. Because of this we are able to offer a lifetime guarantee on our packs, this extends to all countries. So even if you buy your pack in Cape Town, you’ll be able to have it serviced and repaired in The United States.
We build our prototypes right here in our office and walk out the back door to test them. With 270-degree views from our office windows, we can feel the energy of the mountains all around us.
GREAT PACKS SHOULD BE WORN NOT CARRIED
This simple design philosophy inspires us to create the most comfortable and most reliable packs in the world. This foundation becomes a reality through our focus on unique fit geometry and customized chassis technologies which, combined, make Gregory packs extensions of your body not unlike your favorite T-shirt or hat.
We know what it’s like to find our way between the daily and the dream. We understand it takes exploration, spirit, and drive every day to make your life what you want. We’re dedicated to building gear you can trust to take you there because we’re on our way, too.
