Adventure Tool Company making bags for attendees

The 2014 Overland Expo attendee bag hanging on the only surviving steam shovel among those that dug the Panama Canal.We’re pleased to announce we’ve partnered with Adventure Tool Company of Colorado to make this year’s attendee bag. This isn’t your average conference or expo bag. First, it’s made by hand, right here in the U.S. from American-made components. Second, it is built to last—not some cheap made-in-Asia floppy thing that will tear with the first use. Constructed of heavy waxed canvas, rugged Cordura, and MILSPEC components, sewn with high-tensile nylon thread, and reinforced with binding tape, this bag is as tough as nails, perfectly suited to overlanding. You’ll carry it at Overland Expo, then take it home and use it for many years to come. Finally, our patch mania continues, with a 4″ strip of velcro loop across the front, where you can add patches you collect from exhibitors at Overland Expo. (And even better news, Adventure Tool Company will be creating a more robust version of this bag for their full messenger bag later this year.)
