In 1952, Dick Kelty, a carpenter, builder, and avid outdoorsman, started making backpacks for his friends in the Sierra Club for 24 bucks a pop. His friends were grateful. Soon, Kelty and his friends were exploring the Sierra Nevada with heavy loads, no shoulder pain, going farther, longer, and happier into the wilderness than ever before. Kelty started as a company making it easier for friends to enjoy the wilderness, and that's what they still do.
