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.
For more images and complete details on the bag materials and construction, visit the Kickstarter page. If you’re in the market for a great bag yourself or as a gift for someone else, supporting this great New York local has my full thumbs up.
