We engineered this backpack as the ideal blend, serving sports, urban, and rugged environments. KAUTION is again beating the competition in quality, innovation, and value. 

We have dedicated this design and 11% of it profits to the memory of Tristan Lloyd Kern 4/27/96 – 11/10/2017.


Before his accidental death on Mt. Storm King, Tristan was studying Apparel Fashion Design & Merchandising, preparing for a career in outdoor gear design. Tristan was a passionate adventurer having hiked, hunted, fished, cycled, camped, climbed & skied the PNW. He did this with his father, grandfathers, & many other dear family and friends. Tristan was the namesake of famed 20th century adventurer Tristan Jones. 

Tristan, we hope you see from above all the amazing places this pack travels on the backs of our friends. We hope you get to go with them somehow. May we all be reminded from your life that life should be fully lived. Also, let us be encouraged by the fact that you live on in a different place, behind a door we all hope to enter someday. 

Please join us in supporting the causes and family of this wonderful son, friend, and adventurer.  We are launching this bag on 11/11 two years + one day after his passing from this world. 


The Tristan Pack is a perfect bland of ultra durable quality, security, sleek design, function, and waterproofing. This fabric is made from the a top quality 100% waterproof 840D TPU that adventurers love. The seams are Radio welded making them the strongest part on the bag. Easily access your gear with a reflective white interior laptop case allowing you to see interior contents. The 8L rear pouch is side ventilated keeping rain out, allowing muddy shoes and sweaty clothes a separate chamber to dry. The chest strap is 360degree adjustable and includes an emergency whistle. The ergonomically designed back-pad will protect your gear and provide comfort for hours of wear time. In the center of the back is a triangle that hides a hidden theft proof pocket accessible from either side.  The zippers are highest quality and engineered to be theft-resistant requiring just enough force so you feel whenever they are opened or closed. The zippers are weather sealed and keep rain, snow and dust out. The backpack straps have extra padding for extreme comfort. All packs include a removable white laptop bag able to hold all standard laptops. This is one of the only urban backpacks that can be hosed out and will not absorb dirt, sweat, or mud into the TPU material.

Environmentally, our goal is to create quality products with a 10-20 year service life to reduce waste. This higher quality is slightly more expensive upfront for us. We believe everything brought into this world should be worth making utilizing every resource to its maximum life span thus. We believe this approach is the best real-world strategy to realistically reduce waste and keep our gear dry enjoying this wonderful world. Our lifetime repair+replace warranty offers us the ability to recycle components that have reached their service life and re-use the components that have not.
