MOUNTAIN KHAKIS® AND DULUTH PACK COLLABORATE ON NEW LINE OF AUTHENTIC MADE-IN-AMERICA BAGS LAUNCHING FALL 2016
Limited-Edition Bags Showcase Timeless Mountain Heritage with American-Made Ethos
Jackson Hole, Wyo. (July 6, 2016) – Mountain Khakis®, a mountain-inspired lifestyle apparel brand, and Duluth Pack, known for handcrafted outdoor gear made in the U.S. since 1882, have partnered to create a premier, limited-edition line of backpacks, totes, duffle bags, satchels, and portfolio briefcases arriving at retail fall 2016. Intended for a range of activities including travel, business, outdoor pursuits and everyday activity, the line ranges in price from $49.95 to $599.95.
The line includes; the No. 51 Deluxe Pack, for commuting in style; the Grab-n-Go, for overnight essentials; the Deluxe Shell Bag, holds 50 shells for the sports-person, and everyday accoutrements for the woman on the go; the Commuter Portfolio, for the rugged business-person; the Bison Tote, for farmer’s market treasures; and the Sportsman’s Duffel, an elegant “hold-all” bag for the core enthusiast looking for unique style. Each item features hand-selected American Bison leather, waxed canvas, or a combination of both, is lined with Mountain Khakis’ proprietary topo map fabric, and finished with a custom black leather logo patch showcasing both brands.
“We are pleased to be able to team up with such a well-respected outdoor company like Mountain Khakis,” said Tom Sega, Duluth Pack’s President. “This spirit of cooperation and the resulting collaboration pays homage to tradition and quality – values that have been part of our heritage since the beginning in 1882.”
“Collaborating with Duluth Pack does much more than create a unique line of classic bags,” says Noah Robertson, co-founder and product development and design director of Mountain Khakis. “This alliance brings together two values-driven companies with an exclusive line of American-made products showcasing some of the very best aspects of each brand. We look forward to continuing this partnership for years to come.”
Mountain Khakis will distribute the new pieces through its direct mail catalogs, e-commerce, and at specialty retail, and will showcase the collection in their Outdoor Retailer booth #18009; Duluth Pack will distribute solely through wholesale avenues, and will also display the collection in their booth #BR350.
