A simple philosophy that Manhattan Portage set out to achieve back in 1983, "New York Tough." The brand takes the functionality of outdoor gear/packs and bring them to an urban audience. Using materials like CORDURA brand nylon and high quality plastic Delrin buckles and have incorporated them into a new urban aesthetic that is chic, innovative, and confident.
The bags and backpacks have since earned their street creed; they are reliable and tough companions on the streets of New York City, the epicenter of culture. What was originally designed for bike messengers in NYC and DJ'S in the East Village has become mainstream. Despite their lasting success, the brand remains committed to the fundamental guidelines that were set years ago for great innovative designs, the use of the highest materials, and excellent craftsmanship.
The experience, skills, technical innovations and the successes of the past three decades to expand and diversify your portfolio to meet the challenges and changes of the new century. The versatility, durability, and adaptability have allowed Manhattan Portage to survive the ebb and flow of mercurial fashion tides, that's why we own "New York Tough." It's become part of the history and it's in their DNA.
