From its founding days in 1978, High Sierra Sport Company has been making gear you can count on. Whether you're taking a year off to travel around the world staying in hostels and sleeping on trains, you're out for a hike or a mountain bike ride in the woods, or you're just off to another rigorous day at school, High Sierra has the perfect pack, bag or luggage for you. They're not just a backpack company, check out all of their collections:
That exciting (or is it dreaded) time of year is about to begin again and you need a school pack. High Sierra has you covered whether you need a bookbag that can also carry your laptop, or a lightweight daypack for just a binder and a few books. If a few books means 25 pounds of them, their rolling backpacks for school will happily carry a ridiculous amount of homework. Check out these favorites:
If your weekends involve some kind of active adventuring, then a knapsack, hydration pack or lumbar pack are what you need. With lots of features to keep your gear organized AND carry it comfortably, these High Sierra packs are equal parts streamlined high performance and durable trail-ready toughness. With their budget-friendly price tags, it's possible to get a few styles so you'll always have the perfect daypack whether you're hiking, biking, trekking, climbing or paddling.
The High Sierra water packs come with a 1.5-liter or 2-liter reservoir. Some hug your back and carry just your water, while others have room to carry extra layers, tools and snacks. The High Sierra waist packs (the packs formerly known as fanny packs) free up your arms and shoulders for a sweat-free hike, and have plenty of room for binoculars, field guides and water bottles. And if a long day hike into the mountains is what you crave, then load up one of their daypacks for a happy day on the trail.
After 30+ years in the business, they've just about perfected their backpacking packs. Catering to any style of camper, they have fast-and-light overnight packs, external frame packs for those who appreciate the classic old-school style, and internal-frame packs for those who take one for the team by lugging group gear, or who like a little luxury in the backcountry. From models that include mesh backs for lots of ventilation while you hike, to fit-anyone styles with adjustable back panels, to the big-load-haulers with cushy hip belts, these High Sierra packs come in all sizes.
When you feel the tug of foreign destinations, High Sierra has you covered for Travel Packs. From their 3 in 1 wheeled backpacks with an attachable daypack, to their wheeled duffel bags, to their carry-on daypacks, you'll be venturing out with the perfect luggage. From the everyday haul to the trip of a lifetime, High Sierra builds some of the best, and most affordable, gear we've seen.
