DESIGNER'S VOICE


When I had been running the brand for a few years, a friend once asked me, "Why don't you release more unconventional products?" As someone who had been creating tools like PATHFINDER, CARGO, and RUSH that had never existed before, I found this remark quite surprising, to be honest.

Since outdoor gear needs to be safe and easy for anyone to use, it is crucial to create something that no one has ever seen before. This is my mission. That's why PAAGOWORKS produces products that are "Typical but Unique."

BUDDY backpack, introduced this spring, is exactly such a product. At first glance, it has an authentic design and high versatility as a tool. However, if you look closely, you’ll notice that its basic structure and details are quite unique. During the development stage, we started with simple single-strap designs, then tried roll-tops and back-side openings, eventually settling on the "high center of gravity design" found in the RUSH28. This unique structure features a large opening on the body side and uses stabilizers to bring the center of gravity closer to the shoulder blades. Meanwhile, the material is lightweight yet tough, with a texture that anyone can use without hesitation. Additionally, we improved the storage capacity and accessibility compared to the RUSH28. This is the birth of a backpack that is truly "Typical but Unique."

So, take your BUDDY and head out for some outdoor adventures!

Pack and go !
