Kletterwerks Kurier

Tyler Allen



By Tyler Allen Staff Writer

If you haven’t heard of Dana Gleason, you should probably crawl out from underneath the rock where you’ve been living and buy one of his packs.

The founder of Dana Design and Mystery Ranch cut his teeth making Kletterwerks, which went bankrupt in 1983 after Gleason sold his stake. Kletterwerks remained Bozeman lore until 2012, when Gleason’s son D3 resurrected the business, bringing back the timeless look and functional designs.

I use the Kletterwerks Kurier every day. It holds my computer, camera, documents and all the necessary accessories for a mountain journalist. My fly reel is kicking around in there, too. It’s comfortable, essential and the rust orange color turns heads all over town. Available at Schnee’s in Bozeman. $299

Retro yet modern, the Kletterwerks Nobel Pocket should probably win the Nobel gear prize. Simple in design but ultra-functional, the padded pouch safely holds an ipad; a padded internal divider and pockets help organize smaller items like power cords, iphones or ipods.
