Epperson Mountaineering: when a hobby becomes a matter of life
Dive deep into history of the American brand which is characterized by the use of high-quality materials with thoughtful details and nontrivial design
Epperson Mountaineering brand was founded by Mark Epperson in 1973 in the small town of Libby, Montana. Cosmopolite who truly loved mountains, for all his life Mark couldn’t find a backpack that would satisfy his needs. As it usually happens in similar stories, he decided to make one in his own hands and in a single quantity. The rest was a mere formality – close friends persuaded Mr. Epperson that such a product would appeal to a much wider audience. Perhaps, this story was to become a starting point for a whole brand of utility accessories.
As more than 40 years ago, Epperson backpacks are still produced by experienced craftsmen in the USA, in the very same state where it all started. These packs have a whole lot of pockets that makes it possible to store whatever it takes for both a long trip and everyday use. The materials used for production are also to be noted: durable nylon and waterproof Cordura are good at keeping the packs’ shape, protecting all your belongings from unexpected weather changes.
Epperson Mountaineering collections are inspired by different events, but for the most part they go along with two personal interests of the company founder: American outdoor-culture of 70s and 80s, and space exploration under the USA and the USSR rapprochement. A lot of backpacks of this remarkable brand are presented at our shop.
