|10 Things You Should Know about Manhattan Portage (MP)|
|1||Manhattan Portage is there for the long haul, designing, manufacturing and distributing bags since 1983. It has a strong reputation for authentic designs, durability and practicality. They have built a loyal following and word-of-mouth advertising from satisfied customers.|
|2||Manhattan Portage collaborates with several brands in the fashion and apparel industry, is featured in numerous magazines, movies, and blogs, and is now an active sponsor within the bike/fix-gear communities, film/music festivals, art/design contests and other urban-related events.|
|3||Manhattan Portage is not just for New Yorkers. It has universal appeal and offers bags for everyone. Manhattan Portage offers a bag for everyone, from heavy-duty messenger bags that can carry all you need, to colourful vinyl bags that will make anyone stand out in a crowd|
|4||Manhattan Portage is best known for its iconic red label featuring the skylines of Manhattan on it.|
|5||Manhatton Portage bags are solid and well constructed using detailed craftsmanship. Stress areas are triple stitched for extra durability, shoulder straps are sewn onto the bag body for stability, outer binding is made out of Cordura not regular Nylon, and binding ends inside the bags are burn cut.|
|6||What makes the difference between a good bag and a great bag? The whole MP line uses bonded heavy duty threads (used in mountain shoes), hard strap smooth end finish (to protect delicate clothing), thoughtful zipper finish (so that the YKK zipper does not get jammed easily), etc … all these little details increase the lifetime of a bag. This is why a Manhattan Portage bag still looks great 5 years from now, works just fine 10 years from now, and can go the distance for 15 years and even more for those customers that decide to stick with their daily companion for the long haul.|
Manhattan Portage bags use the absolute best in hardware. Most parts are custom-made. Custom YKK zippers and buckles with the MP logo and letters imprinted on it = YKK is the Gold Standard in the bag industry. Also use heavy-duty metal hooks and top graded D-rings. Use heavy-duty and coated straps that do not fray easily and wider straps for comfort (5cm wide for medium and large bags), a higher grade of nylon webbing for connecting straps, a higher quality grade for the inside lining, etc.
Manhattan Portage bags are made of the finest and most durable fabrics around. This is why it costs more than other bag brands using cheaper components, and why there is a difference in price.
1000D CORDURA® Classic fabric has been used in the Manhattan Portage line since 1983: it is the best-quality and most durable nylon on the market today (the Cordura yarns are imported from USA). There are 2 layers of water resistant coating behind the CORDURA® fabric MP use. Aauthentic CORDURA® always comes with an outside CORDURA® Hangtag attached and an additional CORDURA® label sewn inside every bag. That’s the case for all MP bags made out of Cordura!
Waxwear Fabric is Made in the USA with a secret wax formula that has been kept for 7 generations, it is 100% Waterproof, cotton-based, with unique finish and handfeel, and found in a few other bags brands costing many times as much.
|9||Manhattan Portage bag designs are authentic. Unfortunately not so many bag brands can say the same. Beware of cheaper imitations … since May 1st, 2011 a hologram sticker is applied inside every MP bag so consumers can also activate their limited lifetime warranty online.|
The whole product line is backed by a limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects. The only things their Warranty does not cover are instances of bag misuses (ex: Washing machine/dry; overstuffed pockets; etc.) and the natural tear & breakdown of bag components over time.
There was a simple philosophy that Manhattan Portage set out to achieve back in 1983, "A Bag For Everyone." 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 and carried by everyone. Manhattan Portage bags have been manufactured since 1983. Their manufacturing philosophy is to carefully design and refine each new bag, then personally inspect and select all materials. Manhattan Portage use the best goods and the latest in hardware, such as YKK custom zippers and the highest grade of nylon available in the market today, called 1000 Denier Cordura, from Invista.
