BACKPACKS: Tough Traveler's backpacks are well-known for their superior durability, excellent workmanship and materials, designed in convenient sizes, shapes, and colors, so you can pick a backpack for your adventure, travel, or everyday use. Plus, they're 100% Made-in-USA! If you're tired of buying a new backpack every year, you need to try a Tough Traveler®.

"...Back when I started middle school in...1979, my parents bought me a blue Tough Traveler backpack that I still use to this day. The backpack has survived middle school, high school, college (including a semester abroad in Italy)....jobs in England and Portugal, a trip to Morocco, graduate school in Albany, my Peace Corps experience in Micronesia, and a honeymoon. The backpack is still going strong today. I use it every day ....The backpack has endured rugged trips through 4 continents, and has held up under heat, rain, snow, leaky containers, washers and dryers and all sorts of general abuse for 23 years! And I see no reason why it shouldn't last as long as I need it." -- Gardner Smith
Do you want an added water bottle pocket or a cell pocket on your pack? We are a factory, and generally can put one - or both - on! The charge for each is $15. Just note under "Comments" when placing your order!

    •What makes it "Special"? The soft, dove-grey material is a sturdy but sophisticated fabric. Not part of our regular line, this material is heavy-duty, with a texture that is soft to the touch. While this material is beautiful-looking, soft, and flexible, we consider it less water-resistant than most of the other material that we use, as it is not coated on the back with urethane.

    "I bought my knapsack from you, and I've been very pleased with it. I've had it about a year and am delighted at how well it's holding up.... Where your product really distinguishes itself is in the robustness of the zippers, the strength of the fabric dividing one compartment from another, and the strength of the seams at the top of the shoulder straps. This is where my imported ones would fall apart. Yours is as good as new.... Thanks for a great product." -- Jim Reilly
