Things change. And that includes backpacks.
Packs held up nicely through two world wars, but today’s versions are the epitome of function and cool.

Modern packs were invented in 1952. Credit Dick Kelty, an avid hiker and outdoorsman, for that. Since then, they have gotten even better.

In the following selection, you’ll see a host of options, styles, sizes and features. Choose wisely and pack well.
