Topo Designs began as a way to plug a gap in the market the founders could only personally fulfill with vintage French ski gear and Japanese mountain bags. What started with a single bag quickly spawned into a wide collection of dope accessories and apparel. Western American brands always conjure up notions of quality, but not necessarily the freshest look. Topo is definitely changing that old mindset, and doing it all from their home base just outside the Rockies.
