About us

A century of adventures

Bergans of Norway has been driven by dedicated and passionate outdoors enthusiasts for over 100 years. It all began with the bicycle manufacturer Ole F. Bergan, an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He introduced and patented the backpack as we know it today, an invention recognized and used by adventurers like Roald Amundsen on his expeditions. No other suppliers of hiking equipment and technical clothing can compare to our history in outdoor and polar exploration, or our efforts to share experiences with today's outdoor enthusiasts. Since our inception in 1908, Bergans has played a crucial role in Norwegian outdoor life.


Today, Bergans of Norway is a leading player in the development of functional hiking equipment and technical clothing. In close collaboration with our test team of professional polar explorers and adventurers, we develop high-quality gear. Our unique history and knowledge of Norwegian nature serve as the foundation for every product we create. This has led several of our products to be recognized with awards and accolades, both nationally and internationally.
