The Orion Packs Story

Winter after winter, whether in Montana, Oregon, Idaho, Washington or Canada, Matt kept seeing the same scene play out, skier after skier and boarder after boarder lugging, strapping, slinging or clumsily trying to carry their precious cargo. “Why does this have to be? Someone should try stopping this madness and design a pack meant to carry skis or a board” Matt said to myself.  But it never happened...

 

So we set out on a mission with a vision to design and build a pack to fill a massive void in the alpine and backcountry market. The vision was a pack capable of carrying winter equipment in a functional manner while still providing enough storage for a power bar, phone, keys and a layer. But it also had to look cool, be comfortable, be durable and be functional to the masses.

 

Our unique patent-pending mono body design, utilizes the torso to stabilize your equipment ergonomically and securely across your back. There is no other pack, strap or sling on the market that does what Orion Packs can do and in the manner in which they do it, making our product stand alone.
