Our Story

We’re on a mission to help you travel better. We believe memories made with loved ones in a new destination are magical moments in life. We’re here to help you make the most of them.

How it started

Founded in 2013, Rachel Kistner set out to design better travel bags by using performance fabrics.  Our first line of bags was born on a vintage Bernina sewing machine in a spare bedroom.  And so the journey began.

Rachel teamed up with her husband Ben to build a manufacturing team right here in Denver.  The outcome was an entirely new kind of travel bag that's machine washable, and a mission to help you travel better. 

A better bag, a better world.

2,519,000 Recycled Plastic Bottles

In 2019, we began using recycled fibers to make our poly canvas and webbing. Now, plastic water bottles get a new life as travel bags.

Made Better In Denver

Our passion is to help you travel better, and that starts with the care and craftsmanship we put into every bag we make right here in our Denver workshop.

Performance Fabrics

Our secret sauce is our performance fabrics. Designed to be more durable and easy to clean, there's no fast-fashion around here. Your bags are built to look better and last longer.
