A few weeks ago we found this grungy old hiking pack covered with great patches from the 1920's - 1940's. We knew we wanted to salvage as many of the patches as possible (someone hiked many miles and put a lot of time into collecting them over the years!) and create a new, durable carryall with these patches in mind.
So what we ended up with is this versatile bag made out of World War 1 era canvas and 1950's era Cloud Camo. We included three large outer pockets as well as some detailing with WWII era canvas webbing. We love how it came out and think it honors the original bag in a new but timeless way!


Jon Walley from the video series American Hand came by the studio this past spring and shot a great piece on Forestbound.

Hope you enjoy!

After dedicating many hours to perfecting a new and improved duffle bag pattern we then spent months carrying around a few prototypes just to make sure everything was just how we wanted it - and I am beyond thrilled to let you know that these bags came out even better than I had imagined. 

They are the sturdiest and most versatile design that we've made so far - the perfect bag that can double as your go to every day bag as well as your go to weekend bag. Do you see all those pockets? I know, you can stash so much in this bag. At least 8 pockets (6 interior) on every duffle bag we make. Plus they're great for both men and women - we worked hard to make this a unisex bag in every way.

We'll be stocking the online shop with these over the next few months and plan to make a variety of sizes and colors - so make sure to check the website often. 

Hope you love these bags as much as we do!
