The Crest backpack in kodiak leather. This is the deepest expression of our roots. Uphill Designs was born on Dan’s 2013 thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail for which he sewed a minimalist, lightweight backpack. The Crest is a re-envisioning of that little pack that went all the way from Mexico to Canada on foot and by expressing it's beauty in kodiak leather we've married supple luxury with rugged beauty to create a lifelong companion.
We’ve added an extensive RiRi zipper down one side, comfy quarter-inch foam back support and a computer slip-pocket to adapt this for your day to day.
