New Products: Mission Workshop Bags - Fitzroy

We've carried Mission Workshop ever since they came out with their first bag, the Vandal in 2009, and we're happy to add the Fitzroy and other size/color combinations to our inventory.  Mission Workshop's popularity and success over the past years has grown very well and for good reason, mainly because of their innovations and originality that keeps them comfortably separated from other bag makers. 

I've personally owned and operated a Vandal bag coming on 3 years now and have nothing but great things to say about it and the company itself.  They take pride in what they build and sell, and especially because they that stamp "Lifetime Warranty" and "Made in USA" on their products.
