Big Hiking Backpacks

Tough Traveler began designing & manufacturing hiking backpacks since 1970, and all our backpacks are still made in upstate New York with fine quality workmanship & comfortable construction!

Our backpacks come in a range of sizes and to fit different people - from kids to experienced hikers. All have our unique framed suspension system to provide you the best back comfort, no matter what load you are carrying.

"Dear Tough Traveler,
I purchased a back pack from your company in the year 2000. It has been abroad , camping & hiking in the Adirondack Mountains of NY State, to Colorado (Rockies) and to the Grand Canyon (i.e South Rim and the North Rim to Phantom Ranch) at least 2 times.... It shows no sign of wear and it is very comfortable. There is nothing like, 'Made in the USA'. Thank you Tough Traveler for beauty, comfort and quality.
Satisfied customer,
