The Kamarg 59.
Now available for pre-order. Ships December 8th.Pre-order now
The Kamarg 59 arose from our desire to bring our tradition and many years of experience together with today’s requirements for a daypack. After two years of development work, we are now proud to finally present this new product to you.
The Kamarg 59 is the first Kamarg in the brand’s history to feature a laptop compartment. The compartment is lined with neoprene and allows your computer to be transported safely. 13 “inches can be transported perfectly with it, but 15” inches is also sufficient. We have also provided a second compartment for your iPad, headphones or your writing book.
In response to many requests from our users, the new Kamarg 59 now has a magnetic quick-release fastener that enables the backpack to be opened quickly.
In order to perfectly protect your notebook and to make the transport of bulky things even more comfortable, the Kamarg 59 now has a light back padding.
Two elastic straps secure your water bottle from falling in the main compartment.
To be able to transport jackets and sweaters perfectly, the Kamarg 59 has an additional elastic band.
Due to its dimensions, the Kamarg 59 also has space for good old records and you can easily stow things like a water bottle or books next to your books and A4 documents. And despite a weight of only 640g.
The Kamarg 59 is again made of water-repellent canvas fabric, which is waterproof even without chemicals thanks to a quickly swelling thread.
We use durable, sustainable materials, reduce the use of plastic to a minimum and produce fairly in Europe. Both the Kamarg 57 and the Kamarg 59 are water-repellent, can be repaired at any time, put away your 15 “notebook and are a small space wonders.
At Kamarg we believe that doing the right thing is possible with every aspect of our company. That is why we examined every step of the backpack production under the aspect of sustainability and resource conservation and thought about how we can do it better. From the materials to production and extending the life of the product.
Kamargs have been sold again since June 2017 and have found many enthusiastic owners around the world. After all, a backpack is probably your most important everyday companion next to your smartphone.
At Kamarg we made a conscious decision to reduce plastic as much as possible and only use it where it is absolutely necessary. We were able to reduce the plastic content of our backpacks to a maximum of 9% (with the Kamarg 57 even down to 6%). We believe that a good backpack doesn’t need more plastic. But that’s not all. For the piping of the backpack we use piping from the warehouse liquidation of a furniture factory in northern Portugal. In other words, we process already produced and otherwise obsolete materials (and yes, that’s why our backpacks will only ever be available with white, brown and black piping).
We have bought and tried many daypacks over the past few years. Many did not survive their second birthday. Bad design, cheap plastic and poor carrying systems are often to blame for the short lifespan. This is clearly a waste, not only of our money but also of resources and energy.
We believe it is time to rethink and consciously choose long-lasting products. Built-in redundancy and predetermined breaking points are an invention of the 1970s. Time to rethink. At Kamarg, we are about creating products that last for years, that accompany us on our adventures, that collect our memories. That is the incentive that drove us to manufacture a backpack that – with a few small repairs – can last a lifetime and travel with us through the decades.
We produce our backpacks in Europe, which allows us shorter delivery routes and a smaller carbon footprint. We pay the employees at our production facility fairly and pay great attention to good working conditions, after all, the backpack should not only give you pleasure but also make a positive contribution to other stakeholders such as the environment and employees.
Our resources are precious. When, after many years, the material of part of the camera is worn out, the backpack goes for repair, not the trash. In contrast to other backpacks, Kamargs are developed in such a way that they can be easily spruced up with interchangeable straps, cords and zippers, which you can order very soon on our website. Repair it yourself, ask dad or mom (who can do it better), or carry it to a local tailor.
In contrast to the original Kamargs, the canvas is now water-repellent. In addition, for the first time there is a rain cover for Kamarg backpacks. The improvement was the result of months of testing the prototype in the mountains around Salzburg and Munich.
All Kamargs have a carrying system with an almost 100 year old tradition. It is based on a patent for a carrying frame for hunter backpacks from the 1920s. The carrying system allows a more even weight distribution and thus enables a reduction of the padding on the straps and an overall lighter overall weight of the backpack. We believe what worked well for hunters should be enough for anything you put in your Kamarg.
Kamarg was founded in Graz, Austria in 1949 to equip Austrian mountain hikers and adventurers with high-quality backpacks. The brand quickly became a bestseller among backpacks in Austria in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1960 Kamarg supplied almost 2,000 sports shops in the Alpine region.
Decades of experience are a clear plus, especially with backpacks, where opportunities for improvement often only become apparent after years. Our backpacks carry the concentrated knowledge of materials and requirements of three generations. Since the first edition of our daypack in 1949, over 50 documented detail improvements have been made in the first phase of our history and over 15 in the second phase. And we don’t stop thinking about further improvements. That’s why the Kamarg is so easy to wear and so much fun.
The Kamarg 57 soon became a bestseller after its introduction in the late 1950s. Today it is the best-selling Kamarg of all time, a rank that no other Kamarg product will quickly compete with. It was also the product with which we relaunched the brand in 2017 through crowdfunding.
The Kamarg 57 is designed for your daily adventure and is our universal talent. Thanks to his large main compartment, he is just as confident when shopping as he is on a day tour of your local mountain. Its small pack size makes it easy for you to take it with you as a daypack on your city trip.
The Kamarg 59 is the merging of our long tradition with the requirements of an urban daypack. Outwardly unmistakably a Kamarg, it has a modern interior like a laptop compartment and bottle holder.
At 15l, slightly larger than the Kamarg 57, it offers sufficient storage space for books and shopping.
