Founded in 1989 Yak Pak is a New-York based lifestyle brand that manufactures a full range of products, including backpacks, messenger bags and casual accessories for the teen and college consumer. First started out of a college dorm room, Yak Pak has proven to be a pioneer in the backpack industry.
Known for its innovative style and designs, Yak Pak has shifted the largely monochromatic backpack market to one of bold colors and expressive prints. This open-minded approach to product design is the foundation of Yak Pak’s spirit of freedom and independence that resonates throughout the brand.
Since its beginning Yak Pak has revolutionized the bag industry, introducing the first micro and mini backpacks, DJ bags, Origami bags and crossbody bags. Yak Pak has remained committed to producing bags that aren’t just something you carry, but rather as an extension of individual expression and style.
Today Yak Pak is headquartered in the heart of New York City. Its full portfolio of products is available at top retailers across the United States and Canada, ranging from independent specialty stores and department stores to college bookstores and sporting goods retailers.
Yak Pak bags are designed, manufactured and distributed by AHQ, LLC.
