MYSTERY RANCH founder and owner Dana Gleason II founded Kletterwerks in 1975. Dana created Kletterwerks to design simple yet durable backpacks and hiking gear. In German, Kletter means “climbing,” which encompasses Kletterwerks’ purpose in producing outdoor bags perfect for hiking and other outdoor adventures. Made in the USA, Kletterwerks manufactures bags perfect for both everyday carry and travel. Each bag is crafted using the highest quality material for lifetime practical use. Kletterwerks is happy to repair or replace a bag that does not meet the company’s standards.
