Not that long ago Colorado’s Topo Designs released their amazing Fall 2013 Lookbook. Now the brand has released a fascinating collection of bags with outdoor clothing brand Woolrich.
For those unfamiliar with Woolrich, the label has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing for well over 180 years. The company was founded by John Rich in 1830 by selling woolen fabric, socks, coverlets, and yarn to the people living in the lumber camps of Pennsylvania. Legend has it that Woolrich was the first company to use a zipper in men’s trousers. Even if that is folklore, the company designed popular and timeless items like the Railroad Vest and Buffalo Check Shirt.
Despite surviving the Civil War, the Great Depression, two world wars, and the end of the Cold War, competition from L.L.Bean, Eddie Bauer, The Timberland Company, The North Face, Patagonia and Columbia placed Woolrich in difficult times. However, America’s oldest manufacturer of outdoor gear has kept its doors open by continuing to create quality goods that are proudly made in the USA.
It also doesn’t hurt by teaming up with one of the most buzzed outdoor companies currently around.
The Topo x Woolrich “Made in USA” collection combines Topo’s Klettersack, dopp kit and duffel bag with Woolrich’s iconic wool patterns. Here’s a closer inspection of the small, yet incredible, line.
Topo x Woolrich Dopp Kit
Woolrich provided its high quality, made in USA, woolen fabrics to Topo’s unique triangular design. The result is a colorful and convenient bag for all your toiletries while on the road. Small enough for easy travel, but has enough space for all your essentials. This nifty little bag is $39 at either Topo or Woolrich.
Topo x Woolrich Duffel Bag
Topo’s unbelievable duffel bag gets paired up with Woolwich’s iconic woolen fabrics for a versatile and durable option to carry your gear. The bag also features a detachable shoulder strap, an inner organizer pocket and a cognac leather handle. It has a price tag of $189 at both Woolrich and Topo.
Topo x Woolrich Klettersack
Topo’s classic Klettersack is paired with Woolrich’s high quality woolen fabrics for an essential traveling companion. Other features include natural leather lash tabs, a reinforced seatbelt webbing, and a completely lined inner with drawstring closure and laptop sleeve. No matter where the road takes you, you can be certain that this bag will protect all of your gear. It’s available at Topo and Woolrich for $249.
