Bergans’ New Kids Backpacks!

Planning on taking your kids backpacking? Bergans of Norway makes it easier with two new backpacks designed specifically for kids (and to help get the load off your back). Just don’t go rushing to stores quite yet…they won’t be available until next spring, leaving you plenty of time for planning.

Your kids’ backs will be in good hands. In 1908 Ole F. Bergan invented the ergonomic framepack now used in modern backpacks. And the pedigree is impressive. Roald Amundsen used Bergans equipment to conquer the South Pole; Sir Edmund Hillary used it to carry oxygen bottles up Mt. Everest; and Cecilie Skog trusted Bergans to become the only person to top the Seven Summits, three Poles and cross Antarctica unsupported.

Now, with Bergans recently relaunching its brand in North America, your kids can benefit from the same experience – making your trip in the woods all the more relaxing, and making your kids feel like they’re actually contributing to the team.
