70 years of backpack experience


Kamarg was founded in Graz, Austria in 1949 to equip Austrian mountain hikers and adventurers with high-quality backpacks. The brand quickly became a bestseller among backpacks in Austria in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1960 Kamarg supplied almost 2,000 sports shops in the Alpine region. In the early nineties the company closed and was resurrected by a crowd funding effort in 2017.

Our backpacks carry the concentrated knowledge of materials and requirements of three generations.

Since the first edition of our daypack in 1949, over 50 documented detail improvements have been made to Kamarg Backpacks in the first phase of our history and over 15 in the second phase. Because tried and tested always wins.
