Our Wall of Fame... Real People, Real Adventure

Since 1973, The Backpacker has supported thousands of individuals who've trekked across continents, paddled the fastest rivers or climbed the toughest big walls. Backed by the best gear and service in the business, each individual on our Wall of Fame began their journey with a single step. At The Backpacker, we're not just here for the gear. We're here to help you get going. Let's get started.
