We are very excited to announce our Empire Lite Bag was featured in Freshness Magazine! Take a look below:
“The original messenger bag company Manhattan Portage is back with a new model The Empire which is a twist on the messenger bag and backpack styles. Constructed out of tarpaulin for absolute water proofing and also durability for the busy days….” Click here to see the entire blog post write up from Freshness Mag!
If you’ve checked out our web store in the past week or so, you may have noticed that we’ve released a number of new items. One of them is the Empire Jr, the smaller and lighter version of the Empire Bag, the second release of our signature Black Label collection.
Whereas the original Empire was designed from the ground up for professional messengers and is sized accordingly, the new Empire Jr is scaled down for casual use. It’s made with all the same quality materials and construction that makes our Black Label bags indestructible, but it’s smaller and lighter, making it ideal for day trips and biking/hiking expeditions.
Don’t worry – unless you make a living delivering packages, this smaller Empire can still fit anything and everything you would ever want to carry on your back.
