Tough Traveler: An American Designer & Manufacturer
We've been in business since 1970, and have a long history of making durable bags in a fair and environmentally-friendly manner. We were "sustainable" before it was popular! All of our bags are designed and hand-sewn in our factory in Schenectady, NY. We use high quality, USA-made materials like genuine 1000 d. Cordura and YKK zippers.
Our bags are made with attention to detail and high-quality construction, such as triple-stitching in stress points - the process is slower and more expensive, but results in a product that will last many years!
If you have any questions, we welcome phone calls (1-800-468-6844) and visits to our factory store! Our staff is always happy to give you assistance. Need something a little different? We do custom work and can alter any of our products to suit you!
Tough Traveler Represents NY at White House Showcase
In 2019, Tough Traveler was honored to be chosen to represent NY manufacturing at the annual White House Made in America Product Showcase.
Joining one manufacturer from each state, we displayed the unique and high-quality bags designed & made by our talented New York artisans & craftspeople.
That same year, we were also the recipient of a NYS Senate Empire Award for our long-term commitment to supporting our community with good jobs & sustainable products.
