Who makes our gear and where?
At Banana Backpacks we believe that your gear should be manufactured to the highest standards, in a way that you would be proud of. That means the highest manufacturing quality and highest ethical standards are non-negotiable.
Our manufacturer is located just outside the busy metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. They have been one of the world’s best bag manufacturers for over 15 years and specialize in building highly technical outdoor gear, where product failure can result in life or death. We’re talking extreme backcountry avalanche bags and mountaineering packs. They’re also incredible at building camera gear designed to keep insanely expensive technical equipment safe. With this kind of expertise, you can rest assured your gear was built to last. They also pride themselves on their safe working environment, low employee turnover (a proxy for factory worker satisfaction), and support of the local community.
