Diamond Brand Gear, an American manufacturer of outdoor gear, is excited to expand their lifestyle offerings with a new durable travel bag. With a long history of manufacturing gear for the Boy Scouts, U.S. Military, and big outfits such as L.L. Bean and Eddie Bauer, the legacy brand has become a master of mixing tradition with innovation. Their latest challenge? Giving the classic travel companion a modern twist.

Diamond Brand Gear has given the familiar duffle bag a contemporary upgrade with the Day Tripper Duffle Bag, available in three convenient sizes. Designed with a particularly careful eye toward being flight- and travel- friendly, this stylish travel companion is ideal for everything from summer camp to business trips, weekend getaways to family vacations.

Two outer pockets provide easy access to your phone, headphones, water bottle and other necessities. Meanwhile, grab handles at the end of the bag allow for vertical carry down airplane aisles or through crowded lobbies, and painless removal from overhead bins or car trunks. The exterior is made of sturdy waxed cotton canvas and the interior is a coated nylon oxford resulting in an adventure-ready bag that’s water-resistant and easy-to-clean.

“Our new Duffle Bag was designed with the modern adventurer in mind”, said Diamond Brand Gear CEO, John Delaloye. “Today’s travelers don’t want to choose between style and durability, class and practicality. With the Day Tripper’s all-metal hardware and sleek design, yet high-quality materials and carefully-devised layout, they don’t have to.”

Diamond Brand Gear’s new duffle is available online at diamondbrandgear.com. For more information, please contact Angie Robinson at angie@darbycommunications.com.
