About Manhattan Portage
There was a simple philosophy that Manhattan Portage set out to achieve back in 1983: “A Bag For Everyone.” And twenty-five years later it is certainly ringing true. From Montreal to Melbourne, Osaka to Oslo, and Stockholm to San Francisco, Manhattan Portage’s line of bags are indeed everywhere. Despite their sweeping global popularity, Manhattan Portage remains loyal to their NYC roots. This 25-year lifespan in the volatile fashion world, and in a town that embraces the designer-of-the-moment but does not suffer has-beens, is no small feat. Manhattan Portage has been able to avoid becoming another fleeting fad and withstand the test of time because their bags do.

By innovating and expanding their line to accommodate the range of uses their bag owners’ demand, the Manhattan Portage line has developed to serve all walks and runs of urban life. Whether you are a DJ transporting your spinning equipment, a cell phone-toting investment banker, a starving student hauling pricey textbooks, or a messenger racing to deliver documents on time, Manhattan Portage has a style for you. (Even if, like many New Yorkers, you fit into two or more of these categories!)

With their red logo, 1000 denier Cordura nylon, Delrin hardware, and a style selection including laptop bags, messenger bags, backpacks, and more, Manhattan Portage bags don’t hide and won’t be going away any time soon. The emergence of competitors and innumerable imitators hasn’t fazed them, but rather left Manhattan Portage celebrating this ultimate sign of trend triumph. Although Manhattan Portage has received press in The New York Times, People, Newsweek, and the Village Voice, their media coverage is not what has fueled their resounding success. It is their versatility, durability, and adaptability that has allowed them to survive the ebb and flow of mercurial fashion tides.
