More Functions Than Your Dad's Zip Off Cargo Pants
SLING / FANNY PACK
AND SO MUCH MORE
Built from Necessity and First Hand Experience
Wanaka Was Not Born in a Boardroom With Graphs and Spreadsheets
Wanaka was founded from a need for a better daypack. From sewing the first prototype to working with the best manufacturers, this brand has evolved from life events that have shaped who we are. For us, Wanaka and our gear reflect the passion for taking advantage of every opportunity, embracing the unknown, and experiencing wild places. We produce quality gear, captivating content, and give our customer something that will last forever.
Months of designing and refining, a trip halfway across the world, and 11 prototypes later... we nailed it
We spent weeks abroad meeting with different manufacturers until we found the perfect fit. From there, we produced sample after sample, testing dozens of different material and hardware combinations. We got closer and closer with each prototype. 11 prototypes later, we nailed it!
TRIED TESTED AND TRUE
From there, we tested the backpack in every way possible: hiking, biking, trail running, canyoneering, rock climbing, ski touring, air travel, bus travel, river trips, mountaineering, bouldering, and more. It was tested in the harshest of conditions during the most rigorous activities. It blew away all of our expectations.
DEEP IN THE DETAILS
We tested dozens of different fabrics, buckles, and zippers throughout 11 different prototypes. We didn't cut any corners with quality or durability. Top of the line material is used all throughout the Wanaka Adventure Pack.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR ANY ADVENTURE
The 24 Liter single compartment daypack is the perfect size to hold just enough gear for your daily adventures. You can also split the 24L pack into two separate compartments to keep your gear separate.
EASILY ACCESS AND ORGANIZE GEAR
Most daypacks pack well, but are terrible backpacks. The Wanaka Adventure Pack has an inflatable frame. This allows it to still pack small but when it's time to adventure, simply inflate the frame and your backpack distributes weight like it should.
ZIP OFF AND GO
The top of the pack zips off and can be worn as a fanny pack or sling. The fanny pack is perfect for traveling. The sling function, coupled with our three contact system and hydration bladder, is perfect for bike rides, hikes, and trail runs.
Protect Camera Gear or Keep A Beer Cold... or Both
We spent a lot of time working with different protective foams and insulations to make sure the camera case would protect your gear and keep food and drinks cold.
Don't Swamp Your Gear
Our custom fit dry bag will keep your gear safe from the elements on your adventures.
The Camera insert can also double as a cooler. We worked extensively with different foams and insulation to ensure it would not only keep camera gear safe, but it would keep drinks cold as well.
Most Packable Daypacks Take Up Space... Ours Saves You Space
The ability to deflate the backpack frame allows the backpack to function as a compression sack. Simply pack your soft goods and compress to save precious packing space.
The Daypack Also Packs Small and Fits Into Its Top Compartment
Don't Wear Dirty Unders
Our integrated laundry bag helps you stay organized while traveling and is a great place to store dirty clothes. It also fits perfectly in the 24L backpack so you can compress and pack your dirty clothes.
