THE STORY BEHIND THE BACKPACK
NATERS was born from a conversation between two brothers and a frustration with their current backpacks.
Well actually, NATERS was born long before that. It was born from a family of explorers. Abe and Nate grew up hiking, biking, and climbing in Southern Minnesota. They carried their love for travel and exploring the outdoors into adulthood as the pursued careers and started families.
Along the way, they grew frustrated with needing a different bag for hiking, a different one for business meetings, and a different one still for traveling. Then, Abe and Nate had a conversation, and that conversation turned into what is now NATERS.
After bringing their cousin Trevor on board, the three decided it was time their family combined their love for the outdoors with their different industry experiences to create a reliable and versatile backpack.
Nate and Trevor spent 3 months abroad researching, and the three cousins spent over a year customizing The Backpack to include 18 unique and practical features that they had been longing for. Now they’re ready to share what they’ve created with the world.Introducing THE BACKPACK
THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME
In high school, Naters was just a nickname. But while traveling overseas, Nate and Trevor came across Naters in southern Switzerland – a breathtaking collection of villages amidst the mountains. They went from business meetings to hiking the Alps, and the name Naters stuck with them.
When it came time to land on a name, NATERS was the natural choice. NATERS was built on hard work, innovation, and desire to keep exploring.
