Packed with 50 years of Experience

In 1967 Greg Lowe was desperate for better gear for his climbing & mountaineering exploits. He needed a backpack that could carry his gear securely but let him move freely on technical and demanding terrain. He designed ‘The Expedition Pack’, it featured an internal frame, compression straps and other never seen before features. Our first product is now considered the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary we are drawn to understand more about the moments that have defined our history. Discover the stories that have made us, the products that define us and the people that inspire us.

Mike Lowe

Greg, Jeff & Mike Lowe were all instrumental in building the Lowe Alpine brand. They worked together to design some of the most important outdoor gear ever made. Not just inventors, the brothers were also a nucleus for the evolution of climbing. They used their innovations in the workshop to help them establish some of the hardest rock, ice, mixed and alpine routes in the world.
