The products we craft are built to the highest possible standards by manufacturers who share our commitment to making the world a better place. Here are the details on how our gear is made.
Where are our packs made?
Our backpacks are manufactured just outside of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by a manufacturer that has been one of the world's best for over 20 years. This modern factory prides itself not only on being an employer, but also a member of the local community. We spent weeks in Vietnam touring factories and looking for the right partner before deciding on this factory due to their commitment to quality, low employee turnover, and dedication to the local community.
How do we ensure a high standard of ethics?
Our manufacturer has been Gold certified by Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP): an independent, objective, non-profit team of global social compliance experts dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane, and ethical manufacturing around the world through certification and education.
What else do we think you’ll love?
Like any good work environment, our manufacturing partner prides itself on the additional benefits provided to employees. Here's a few we love:
- On-site workers' library.
- Training and education programs.
- Support for local children's education initiatives.
- On-site healthcare facilities.
- A year-end games festival and special events for Vietnam Women's Day.
