Product Guide


  • Handbags
  • Luggage


This backpack and soft-luggage superstore, a player in the stylish shlepping trade for more than three decades, draws fewer browsers than destination shoppers, like high school kids and campers seeking out the latest packs, mobile workers in search of a laptop case, or business travelers looking for light but durable suitcases. Canvas and sophisticated synthetics rather than leathers are the base materials for the stock that fills the racks and high white walls of the well-organized, utilitarian store. Kipling wallets, multi-feature Jansport, Le Sportsac and Timberland packs, bright messenger bags by Manhattan Portage and Timbuk2 (the brand with the yellow swirl) are among the myriad offerings. At the back of the store, hardy duffels and luggage sets by Victorinox/Swiss Army provide state-of-the-art constructions to pack and go.
