The Man-PACK® Story

Man-PACK started in 2012 with a crazy idea. (At least everyone else thought it was crazy.) Create a concealed carry sling EDC Sling Pack that was durable, stylish, utilitarian, and affordable. That first design and the products offered have changed based on customer feedback but the core company values are still rooted in the light infantry mentality to "Pack Light. Prepare Well." Since then we've held two successful Kickstarter campaigns and been featured on ABC's hit TV show "Shark Tank." Man-PACK has evolved into a "carry solutions" company focused on creating multi-functional products with minimalist design.

The Man-PACK® was born of Tweedie’s necessity.

While he was a general contractor, Aaron started searching for a bag that was durable enough for a construction site. It needed to look masculine so the other guys wouldn’t make fun of him, and it needed to be useful enough to carry everything. It also needed to be affordable.

After shopping around, Aaron noticed that there wasn’t anything on the market that would suit his needs. So, being a builder, Aaron decided to design and manufacture his own and the concept of the Man-PACK® was born!

He went through prototype after prototype, refining the product at every step. It needed to be strong enough, light enough, and small enough for adventure.

Voila! A hit product is born.

The objective of the original prototype was to make Aaron more prepared… .

And now the mission statement of the Man-PACK® brand states just that:

“To make men more prepared…”
