About Us

Our Story: The PACK was born from the experiences of friends backpacking Europe. We moved every couple days. Sometimes we moved to a hostel, sometimes to a host couch, but we always had the same problem - packing and unpacking our bags was a hassle. Taking everything out of our bags just to find the one shirt we wanted was super frustrating. Sound familiar? All backpackers struggle with this problem, so we set out to create a product that makes packing and unpacking fun and fast - just like it was meant to be!

The Original Founders

Our Mission: Our mission is to make packing and unpacking hassle free for backpackers and travelers. We believe that the less time you spend packing, the more time you spend exploring!

Team Profiles

Jonathan

Jonathan was born with his passport in his hands; he’s visited over 20 countries! Though he’s done his fair share of hardcore backpacking and camping he now prefers nicer, boutique hostels and even takes warm showers.

Hostels are the perfect jumping off place for him to explore new cultures, cities, and architecture. Out of everywhere he’s visited his favorite city is Washington D.C. But his favorite hiking trails are in Central California around the Monterey and Big Sur area - yup, he’s got great taste.

He’s also the first person we’ve heard admit that they like hop on / hop off bus tours (though we all secretly love them).  

Mark

Mark’s a semi professional mountain climber and has visited over 15 countries trying to climb them all.  He most recently visited New Zealand and Australia for a 3 week RV trip and we’re told he climbed on top of that, too.

He prefers to spend his nights outdoors in a tent and really rough it, he’s the hardcore adventurer of the PACK and is responsible for testing it’s ultimate durability. Most weekends you can find him visiting the indoor rock climbing club or traveling to places warm enough to rock climb outdoors.

Know of a good spot? Be sure to let him know on our social media channels (HYPERLINK)

Lauren 

Lauren’s not here right now (she’s checking for fresh powder) so please leave her a message after the beep.

This girl loves skiing! During the winter she spends almost every weekend on the slopes though her ultimate weakness is Denver, CO.  She’s also a fast paced and adventure traveler, and on her most recent trip to Iceland, she got to spend some quality time with her long-time boyfriend watching the northern lights. Lucky!

Ty

Ty’s so big into backpacking he owns half of REI. Seriously, he owns over 5 different backpacks to make sure he has the right one for whatever comes up. He snubs comfort and actually likes living out of a car or staying in hostels during his travels; luckily his girlfriend doesn’t mind and they have an incredible time traveling together all over the world.

He’s very passionate about working in healthcare to improve the lives of sick people in third world countries and dreams of the day when he can devote more of his time to this cause.

The PACK

The PACK is our MVP. He’s been around the world and stayed in thousands of hostels in hundreds of countries and never once made us look at his Facebook photo albums or asked us to crowdfund his trips. His hobbies are flying carry-on only, well-sealed liquid bottles, and not getting caught in conveyor belts at the airport.

He’s a great guy to have hanging around, literally. Don’t believe us? Buy him!*
