Great things come in small packages, especially when it comes to our mini bags. Here are just a few out of our collection:
The Vinyl Sidekick is an old classic revamped; this little wonder is the perfect companion not only for a night on the town, but also features a belt loop for keeping your things safe while riding a bike (or however else you get around!) This mini bag is also great for a night out on the town.
The Quilted Messenger Bag utilizes a new innovative heat press process which adds a diamond print texture to 1000D CORDURA Classic Fabric.This little cutie will be your perfect companion. Daytime or night, it loves to tag along.
The Stonewashed City Lights Bag is made of cotton canvas and brings a new look to a classic Manhattan Portage style. This bag is great for anyone who wants to stand out and be a trend-starter.
The Studio 54 Mini Bag is seriously sparkly! This bag is perfect for daytime or night and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
The Retro Pack is making the “fanny pack” cool again. These bags are hip on your hip and are perfect for walking around the city, biking, jogging or just kicking it with your friends.
Which one is your favorite?
Maybe when some people think “New York Tough” you think of a fighter or bully- but this isn’t our kind of tough. Our kind of tough is helping a friend or stranger, pushing through a hard job or college course to achieve your goals, keeping a positive attitude when it seems almost impossible to do so, and trying your best everyday to do whatever it is you do with pride and a positive mindset. Never give up!
Here are some photos that may help you visualize the definition even more:
Day in, day out, New York City moves with the beats of the world, adapting to the various changing lifestyles of its diverse citizenry, taking hits, reshaping itself, and thriving. It withstands the daily grind of millions of people from all walks of life and hundreds of cultures all going about their own thing.
New York City has been through population explosions, the industrial revolution, cultural movements, the many ups and downs of capitalism, and numerous other challenges large and small. Time-and-again, New York City has come through it all stronger and bolder. Some cities are reflections of their former glory. New York City charges forward, wearing the wounds of its past and embracing the future. There is tough and there is New York Tough.
Born in the streets of New York City and inspired by its citizens, all Manhattan Portage products are designed for the rigors of modern life. We’ve used the skills, technical innovations, and our experience over the past three decades to expand and diversify our line of products to meet the challenges of modern life.
Are you New York Tough?
We were thinking.. and thought it was time to get in with the old and out with the new. Our stonewashed heavy weight cotton canvas brings a new look to a classic Manhattan Portage style.
This cool worn-out look comes in the five different bags above: The Vintage Messenger Bag, the all time favorite Europa, the Big Apple backpack, the City Lights bag, and the Alleycat Waistbag.
We hope you like our new Stonewashed Collection and would love to hear your comments.
