Anyone familiar with BAD bags? (Best American Duffel)

Anyone familiar with these guys? I'm trying to find out where they are actually made. The company is from Seattle, and I was under the impression the bags are made there (and they may actually be)...but unless I'm just blind today, I can't find anything on their website that actually states they are made in the US.

For the last several years, I've been trying to buy American when I can.....

So...anyone have any idea?

Thanks!

I couldn’t find anything on their website either. However, when I googled them, the description under their name does say “made in America”.

I have owned a couple; nothing special. If you are looking to buy an American-made duffle, the best that I have found are those from Red Oxx https://www.redoxx.com/

Thanks for the replies....Yes, I noticed it mentions the Made in US if you Google it....but odd they wouldn't push that on their site...that's a big selling point for a lot of people....

Skywalker....you mention you had a couple...can you confirm Made in the USA? Is there a tag on them or anything to indicate country of origin?

I've looked at Red Oxx....they are nice...I actually purchased one of their shaving kits to see what their stuff was like. Their bags are really expensive (in my world) for a duffle....absolutely nice, and well built.....but they seemed a bit steep, and their shipping price is rather high, as well...

I actually ordered a Bad Bags duffle and toiletry kit.....of course, after I ordered it, I got an email telling me the color I chose was out of stock and I have to wait a couple/few weeks until they restock..... they managed to charge my card pretty quickly, though....lol

I guess I'll find out when they come in......someday....

There is a tag inside the bags that says "Made in U.S.A." However, I purchased the bags several years ago and that may no longer be the case. I just checked their website and could not find any indication as to where they are currently manufactured. If they are indeed still being made in the U.S.A. I think they would say so.

I've been using the #3 with backpack straps (no patches) for a couple years now as a carryon if I'm not backpacking and it works great. Super durable, but no organization.
