Every product sold by Tough Traveler has been hand-crafted in Upstate New York from the highest quality domestic materials. Since 1970, our mission has been straightforward: Make bags that are thoughtfully designed and constructed to last. We don't skimp on materials, construction, or our commitment to treat our customers, sewers, and environment right.
You won't find anything here made overseas, or out of materials that won't hold up. And our designers work their hardest to develop unique styles and functionalities that will work for you! Try our CHAT if you're not finding the exact right bag - we want to help!

"I have bought your purple Messenger Bag in the past. It is a wonderful bag. It's big enough for me to carry the paperback books and other materials for my job, but light enough so that I am not hurting my arms to carry it."
