The Original Klettersack

Wilderness Experience®  introduced the Klettersack in 1974 and it quickly became a favorite of many of the top rock climbers and mountaineers of the day including Alan Bard, John Bachar, Fred Beckey, Jim Bridwell, Jim Donini, Ned Gillette, Beverly Johnson, Ron Kauk, John Long, Galen Rowell, John Roskelley, Kim Schmitz and so many others. It was such an iconic design that both the design concept and the name have been copied by many companies over the past 45 years. What they weren’t able to copy was the material and manufacturing quality.

The Wilderness Experience Kickstarter campaign helped launch "The 2019 Original Klettersack."

We sincerely want to thank all our supporters who made this reintroduction possible.
