Alpine Luddites

Full Custom Backpacks

I build two types of custom packs. First, is a fully designed one-off custom pack as described below. Second, is an actual reproduction of an old pack. More information on reproducing an old design please go here.

download the custom pack order form. You can see some of the most popular custom options here.

After you order a pack I'll contact you for your waist belt size and any customization. You can choose from all features: waist belt, harness size, bivy pad, alloy stays, crampon and ice tool attachment, webbing color and size, fitting issues, etc. all final design decisions will be mine.

All custom packs need a nonrefundable $500 deposit to get on the waitlist. typical Custom packs range from $500-$1900, or more. 

All sizing is custom fit. back panel options include, different thicknesses of high density closed cell foam and 7000 series alloy or Titanium frames or nothing depending on the end use of the pack.

we can build packs focused on  backpacking, general mountaineering/ expeditions, ice climbing, alpine climbing or whatever you think you need. your choice of features for carrying tools, compression straps, haul loops, leather patches, bladder pockets, lid pockets, roll top, fixed or adjustable lids, front zipper access, and colors.

please feel free to contact me for more information and ask any questions. lead times for fully custom packs is 56-66 weeks. this can be longer depending on current orders and/or fabric required.

Please be aware, due to the nature of custom packs, they are not returnable/refundable.
