Just got word of a new bag from Manhattan Portage called The Empire that looks like it can give the Chrome Warsaw (which I will be posting a review of real soon) a run for its money. The Empire comes in black and orange and features large strips of reflective material to ensure maximum visibility on the road. It’s main compartment holds 3500 cubic inches of payload while being completely waterproof thanks to its interior vinyl lining. The exterior of the bag is made from the trusted Cordura Plus Nylon fabric that many Manhattan Portages are made from so it should be able to take a beating from everyday use.

You can check out the bag in person now at the Token Store on Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.
