Tucked away down an alley in San Francisco’s Mission neighbourhood lives the headquarters of Mission Workshop — purveyors of messenger bags, backpacks, and technical apparel, all of which are handmade in the USA and guaranteed for life. Mission Workshop launched their first pack, the SUV-sized Vandal backpack, in 2009. Its little brother, the Rambler, soon followed, and everyone from from DJs hauling records to bike commuters rejoiced. You'll find all sorts in the range now, including bike-specific jeans, special edition waxed fabrics, and technical tees.
Their handmade, lifetime warranty, high quality ethos is something we have always admired. Mission Workshop bags use waterproof fabric and military spec construction.
