At the heart of Nordace are values that inspire and guide us:

Our story

With Nordace, every journey becomes a story.

Ours began amidst the breathtaking canyons of Hawaii. Tony, our founder and Canadian trailblazer, noticed his wife struggling with a backpack that was more of a hindrance than help during their hike. That moment sparked an idea: Why settle for either style or function when you could have both?

This wasn’t just about designing a better backpack; it was about rethinking how we travel. Tony started crafting solutions. He saw beyond just fabric and zippers; he envisioned carriers of values – sustainability, connection, and responsible travel.

He surrounded himself with a team that shared his passion for exploration. Each core member of the Nordace team boasts an average of 10 years of travel experience. That’s over 100 years of globetrotting experience combined

Today, our commitment to thoughtful design and leaving a positive footprint on the world is stronger than ever.
