"...Back when I started middle school in...1979, my parents bought me a blue Tough Traveler backpack that I still use to this day. The backpack has survived middle school, high school, college (including a semester abroad in Italy)....jobs in England and Portugal, a trip to Morocco, graduate school in Albany, my Peace Corps experience in Micronesia, and a honeymoon. The backpack is still going strong today. I use it every day ....The backpack has endured rugged trips through 4 continents, and has held up under heat, rain, snow, leaky containers, washers and dryers and all sorts of general abuse for 23 years! And I see no reason why it shouldn't last as long as I need it." -- Gardner Smith

"I bought my knapsack from you, and I've been very pleased with it. I've had it about a year and am delighted at how well it's holding up.... Where your product really distinguishes itself is in the robustness of the zippers, the strength of the fabric dividing one compartment from another, and the strength of the seams at the top of the shoulder straps. This is where my imported ones would fall apart. Yours is as good as new.... Thanks for a great product." -- Jim Reilly

Made in USA backpack






"I just bought one of your Odyssey backpacks to add to my Tough Traveler collection, which I took on its first day hike today at Blakely State park in southern Alabama.... When I lifted the bag up to put it on I was worried with how heavy I had loaded it. Once I got it on, it suddenly seemed lighter for some reason. I had my girlfriend try on the fully loaded pack and she noticed the same thing. Something about the way it sits against the small of my back must make the pack feel lighter. We hiked 4 miles to our lunch site and the pack was very comfortable and balanced feeling the entire way. Thank you so much for such a wonderful pack as well as all of my other bags. I'm so glad that your bags are still made in the USA and such good quality....

Namaste--"

"I received my Super Padre size Small yesterday, and after trying on over 50 packs at several store, THIS ONE fits!!! I can't believe it; I expected to say yet another 'Oh well...'. I carried some weight around in it today, and didn't even want to take it off! And when I did it was with great fondness that I set it down. I haven't worn a pack for 30 years.... I am so pleased to once again be able to use one..... I love it and thank you so much for your concern for the health of those of us who wear these things!!!" Kathleen DeCelle

    "Dear Tough Traveler, I thought you might enjoy hearing this ...
    Approximately 33 years ago (when my daughter was about 3 years old) I purchased a child's backpack [Kiddy Pack] from you. My daughter now...has a 3 year old son of her own.
    In preparing to visit them this summer, I came across the backpack. Since it still looked brand new, I decided to pass it along to my grandson. I don't know if you can tell by his picture (attached), but he was thrilled!
    In the case of Tough Traveler, the old adage certainly is true ...'you get what you pay for'!
    Thank you Tough Traveler,
    Maureen Scrime"

    "I bought my knapsack from you, and I've been very pleased with it. I've had it about a year and am delighted at how well it's holding up.... Where your product really distinguishes itself is in the robustness of the zippers, the strength of the fabric dividing one compartment from another, and the strength of the seams at the top of the shoulder straps. This is where my imported ones would fall apart. Yours is as good as new.... Thanks for a great product." -- Jim Reilly
