Altadena Works

California based Altadena Works will be adding a couple new packs to their line this winter; the high volume Knapsack which can take lash-on side pockets and a smaller daypack called the Ventura Pack which is the only one of their packs that isn’t leather-bottomed. The Knapsack reminds me of an old Gerry pack I’ve seen before, but surely the Altadena version is more durable because it’s new and made with some serious materials. All four of Altadena’s packs are made with heavyweight cordura, Horween leather, military spec webbing, and metal hardware. Oldschool aesthetics with quality materials, what’s not to like?

  1. Those are lovely. I am planning a long distance hike next summer – the Pacific Crest Trail (time off permitting). I am going the ultra light method. Too bad ultra light gear is not as pretty as this ultra heavy stuff.
