Damaged Items 

If you have a damaged item and it was purchase either in a store or online within the last 30 days we will credit you for the purchase or send you a replacement.  Please contact us at describing the issue and we will send you an authorization form to send us back the item.  Please note that we must receive the item back to give a refund. 

Bag Repair

We no longer offer a lifetime warranty on our bags.  We understand that this is a cause of frustration for some people and we apologize for the change.  As a small company we were unable to keep up with the volume since we have been selling bags over 25 years.  If you do happen to have the original receipt or know the date and store of your purchase we can give you a refund if we receive the bag back.  If you don't know these details, we can still give you a gift card worth 50% of the value of your bag that you can use in the store or online.  But we need to receive the bag back to do all the verification and checking.  We recycle all of our used bags and donate them to Salvation Army near our factory.

As of December 2018 we have decided to return to our roots and make all of our bags in the US.  One of our founders has set up a small factory in Athens, NY to produce Brooklyn Industries and other brands.  In addition, we have a partnership with a factory in Newburg to produce larger runs.  We believe that by returning our production to the US we will have more control over the quality of our bags.  

Thank you for your understanding and patience with our bag policy.  We are a small company and trying very hard to satisfy all our customers and industrialists.
