I happen to be in the market for a duffel bag, and it looks like a just found one…

Brooklyn locals Owen & Fred are launching a smart new collection of bags on Kickstarter. All the bags are under $100 and made in the U.S.A., right in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The collection includes a duffel bag, a commuter bag and a shaving kit. (My own shaving kit happens to be from Owen & Fred.)

The bags are available in three color combos: army green, black and tan, with orange interior; grey and black, with electric blue interior; and Owen & Fred’s signature midnight navy and red. The Kickstarter campaign for the bags features several rewards for different tiers of backing, ranging from tags, a choice of bags, or the full kit of bags. I’m going for the grey and black duffel featured on the rear rack of the Brooklyn Cruiser pictured below.
