Founded in 1997 by a group of accomplished sailors with a knack for sewing, RAGGEDedge uses sailcloth, kevlar and carbon fiber to create small batches of bags and wallets in their Virginia-based workshop. With a distinct, Flywire-like look and well-documented strength, the heavy duty laminate materials lend a unique character to the brand's rugged products. We're particularly partial to the Pack Mule in carbon fiber colorway. The 112-liter, single compartment pack is secured with a double zipper and wrap-around carrying straps. The aesthetic is simple, in the best of ways.
Though each design is only made in small editions, orders are taken after the initial batch sells out—just be ready to wait a week (or three), as each product is individually constructed one stitch at a time. Visit RAGGEDedge to purchase the Pack Mule for $425 and to check out its sailcloth cousins.
