Then, Mike Pfotenhauer and his business partner and wife Diane Wren decided to move to Dolores, Colorado and opened their new production facility built in the 1920s as a Ford Model-T factory.

Famous for their hiking backpacks designed with user needs in mind, the brand moved its manufacturing facility to Vietnam. Mike and Diane moved to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam in 2003 to closely control production standards and not compromise on product quality.
