There are backpacks, and then there are Madden Equipment packs. What sets them apart is the company’s incredible dedication to quality craftsmanship. Each pack they make is constructed from start to finish by a single sewer in their Colorado factory. They use premium fabrics. The bulk of the pack is constructed with 1000d Cordura fabric, just about the toughest stuff in the industry, and then they’re accented with Colorado bison leather, which is not only cool, but it’s unbelievably tough. The time-tested designs give these packs a vintage look that harkens back to the 70s and 80s when Madden Equipment outfitted Outward Bound trips. The end result are rugged, handsome, made in America packs that you would be proud to own.
