Ian Ivarson was a high school student when he realized that backpacks were uncomfortable and offered little organization. All packs are open sacks. Throw your stuff in and it all falls to an uncomfortable and disorganizing mess at the bottom. Bad for your spine, most of the weight sits on your lower back. In 1998, Ian came up with an internal shelving design that would evenly distribute your contents among sewn-in shelves, creating ideal weight distribution, comfort, and load stability. Your stuff is organized and comfort is maximized. In July 2006, Ian officially launched Ivar through 50 select West Coast retailers. Since then, Ivar has evolved from a one-man operation into a network of professionals, all passionate about great style and construction. Uncompromising importance is placed on product quality. Ivar is manufactured under the best working conditions. All Ivar branded product is engineered with the Ivar System patented shelving design, delivering incredible weight distribution, comfort, and organization.
