One would expect intelligent design and exceptional function from a group of unsatisfied American outdoorsmen who previously scattered across the world to purchase premium alfresco gear. The only logical action was to take matters in their own hands and create an American bag company suitable for even the most austere mountain man, or, perhaps, even the most conventional urbanite. Quality is centrally controlled as TOPO found a way to locally produce their paramount bags right next to the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Supreme materials such as natural leather lash tabs, seatbelt webbed straps, military grade metal clasps, and 1000D Cordura outer liners outfit every design.

The latest pack in TOPO’s collection is the Klettersack ($139), which we’ve had the opportunity to use for a few weeks now. It features more cargo space fitting for all your daily or overnight essentials. The top is clad with a drawstring closure for extra protection under wet conditions, and there is also a zipper top pocket overlay for quick access to your crucial paraphernalia. Although the Klettersack boasts design from typical every-day excessive mountain pacs, the slim profile and ergonomic design will suit anyone on level terrain. The pack is available in a range of five colors including black, duck camo, olive, silver and khaki–all with a yellow liner. Lighthearted, TOPO also guarantees the quality, hand-crafted workmanship of every bag with a lifetime warranty against any defects in materials.
