Bags. Messenger, sling, backpack, duffle, you name it, and it has likely been reviewed here. In 2007, San Francisco became the first in California to ban single-use plastic bags. Since then, 108 ordinances banning single-use plastic bags have been approved in the state, covering 137 county or local jurisdictions. Furthermore, if Senate Bill 270 passes in the 2016 election, the bag ban will be statewide. This is why you need to know about Portland, Oregon-based North St Bags and its Tabor Tote.
Let it be known first and foremost that North St makes its bags in Portland out of materials that were made in America. This is a doubly good thing and is something that more companies ought to be doing. While making goods in America out of American-made materials is generally a more expensive proposition, North St is offering its Tabor Tote in 25 and 63 liter sizes at a very wallet-friendly $39 & $59, respectively.
The second thing the Tabor Tote has going for it is the fact that it is cut from 1000 denier Cordura Nylon packcloth. As far as bags go, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more robust and versatile material. It is abrasion resistant, very strong, washable, and when it’s all done being a bag, can be recycled. In short, Cordura is awesome.
