Feel Good Friday: Gear Up and Give Back with Victorinox Travel Gear

feel good friday gear up and give back with victorinox travel backpacks
Whether you are gearing up for back-to-school or just looking for a new bag to lug around office, gym, camping or weekend must haves, Victorinox has a great line of bags ‘with the individual in mind.’

The Altmont 3.0 (the 3rd iteration of the Altmont collection launched last January) collection has standard backpacks as well as ones designed specifically to carry lap tops.  They also have surprisingly good-looking brief cases. There are  some great looking totes and ‘mono-sling’ bags perfect for biking;  just please don’t wear them over your suit. Every bag is made with durable Versatek fabric  which is a super durable, highly breathable, windproof and water repellent fabric that Victorinox uses throughout the collection for extra protection from the elements.

This month, Victorinox is gearing up and giving back by partnering with the Boys Hope Girls Hope and Blessings in a Backpack organizations to provide backpacks to students in need – just in time for back-to-school.

For every backpack sold from the Altmont 3.0 Collection, Victorinox will be donating a backpack to help students in need, getting them excited for the coming school year. Regardless of sales, at least 200 students will receive brand new backpacks.

Both Boys Hope Girls Hope and Blessings in a Backpack help children reach their full potential in school by providing the tools they need to focus on their studies; from a stable living environment and academic support to balanced meals to take home on the weekends.

We have included a little video below about the Altmont 3.0 Collection. Enjoy and start shopping!
