Aarn Packs and Balance Pockets are designed in New Zealand (Mother Nature’s playground), and are available worldwide. Our founders set out to challenge traditional backpack design thinking by creating a pack that didn’t alter posture, balance and movement. Our design principles stay the same to this day as they did 20 years ago (when Aarn’s first pack was released): with a focus on posture, balance, movement, fit, ergonomics and using science to improve your comfort and health.
Aarn Packs continues to be an industry leader in the outdoor adventure scene. We’re proud to have received accolades and awards from DuPont, Trail Kauftipp, Editors Choice at Outdoor, Outdoor Gold Winner, Gear Guide Innovation Awards, and ISPO Brand New Award.
