The birth of a company

Hello my name is Johnny Perez and I am the owner and founder of Urban Mountain Pakks.   I started this company for one reason; to make quality handcrafted backpacks and outdoor gear, and I wanted it to be American made.   This idea came to be because of necessity, about four years ago I needed a backpack for a camping trip I was going on and all I had was a school backpack and that wasn't going to cut it, so after days of searching I couldn't find a backpack that suited my needs and expectation, for an affordable price. In that long search I found lots of low quality packs but they were just that low budget, then I found very good packs but the prices were too much for my wallet to bear and the warranty was lacking.

So at that moment I decided to try and make one, and started planing, after days turned to weeks I drew up my first design and made my pattern, after buying supplies and countless hours of sewing my prototype was made.  I took it with me on my camping trip and it held up very well, I loaded it up with about 25-30 Pounds of gear, and it performed great, my back didn't hurt as I hiked for a couple of miles and I knew then I had something great to offer and I was happy with my new companion.  After receiving great reviews from people in my neighborhood, I decided to start making them and UrbanMountainPakks was born.

While starting the company I not only wanted to sew them myself but I knew I wanted to offer a great warranty as well.  I wanted to make sure that my customers are happy with their purchase so I decided if anything went wrong with their backpacks that they are covered with a lifetime guarantee on all my products. So if a seam rips, a buckle breaks, or even if a grommet comes loose; then I will make it right because that means I didn’t do my job to ensure I use quality materials, so I will repair it for free that’s my Promise to you all. Happy trekking
