In the early 1970s, Mark Epperson was fed-up with his climbing gear. An avid outdoorsman, Mark struggled to find packs that suited his needs- functional, lightweight, and cool. He began making his own in Libby, Montana and ended up accidentally creating a company. Today, the brand lives on, making cool, tough gear that works as well scaling a sheer rock face as it does conquering the city streets. Every piece is still made by hand in Montana.
