Meet the Owners

Michael and Caleb met on a backpacking adventure in Nepal. Michael, a former sheep shearer, went on the trip to get some clarity about his next adventures in life. Caleb — a soccer instructor — went on the trip to explore the landscape in Nepal.

While on the trip, Michael and Caleb realized that they had one common love — the love for hiking and the love for being outdoors.

Returning back to their home state of Kansas, Michael and Caleb hatched a plan to launch a retail store centered around their passions.

While Michael handled the sourcing of goods and customer service, Caleb focused on the web + e-commerce side of the business.

In 2005, Michael and Caleb officially launched Backs with Packs, the premiere store for outdoor enthusiasts around the state.

To this day, Michael and Caleb return to Nepal yearly to ensure that they never forget their roots and where they came from.
