Backpacks 

Backpacks are often the critical piece of gear for outdoor adventures. They carry loads both simple, and bizarre, from our normal camping gear, tent, cook wear, clothes to whole moose quarters and that trophy sheep skull, we ask a lot from out packs. 

If you carry a pack as much as we have, you want it to perform it's best and carry your other gear without blowing out, wearing holes or carrying lopsided. We have built packs from the ground up, modified packs to carry awkward loads and repaired backpacks from ultralight to military grade.

Rebuild of the lumbar pad on a lightweight alpine pack to get one more expedition out of it. The repair outlasted the rest of the pack in this case.

We have invested in sewing machines that are up to the task of sewing through the multiple heavy layers of fabric found in pack seams and we have a number of binding attachments for those machines that allow us to confidently take seams apart and reassemble the pack to a factory like strength and appearance.

We can rebuild or reproduce lost or worn waist belts, reinforce straps and haul handles and have even rebuilt lumbar pads. Backpacks are expensive, keep yours functioning at it's best, so you can perform at your best.
