Our Story

Established in 1977, Drifter Sport and Travel Bags, Inc. began as a parachute rigging business. Our main customers, skydivers, demanded that their parachutes be made of the highest quality material available. Their lives depended on the quality of our products.

Later, the idea to create bags using these materials came to mind. “Who wouldn’t want a bag that is sturdy and durable, but light enough to carry?” And with that, production began and Drifter bloomed. For the last 45 years, Drifter has continually grown and adapted to the changes, as everyone has. But one thing that has not changed, is the desire to create the perfect bags for people everywhere, the kind of product that can prove itself to be sturdy, durable, and lightweight.

Drifter strives to make quality products. That’s why all our products are hand-made with care, using only the highest quality materials, from fabrics to webbing to binding tape and down to the very thread that holds it all together.

Today, Drifter is popular all around the world (Japan, China, Taiwan, Europe, Canada, Australia, and more). It is because our customers trust us and our products. Backed by a rich history, when you buy a Drifter bag, you can be sure that you are getting nothing but the best.
