Team OG Sack Inaugural Ride

Our primary goal in starting OG Sack was to create a versatile/sturdy bag that compliments an active lifestyle, so people can better enjoy whatever it is they’re doing. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I started losing touch with these values in my own personal life.

(Insert Lloyd & Harry from Dumb and Dumber) for “T…t…t-heh…t…” first “An..u..el”, “The” first  annual Team OG Sack Ride. A few of my good friends & I decided to test our wills on the Triple Bypass.  It’s a 120 mile ride from Evergreen, CO to Avon, CO with over 10,000 feet of climbing. When we all signed up for the ride, I viewed it as a slight nuisance (training after work, foregoing certain indulgences days before the race, giving up an entire Saturday to surround myself with people in ill fitted spandex, etc); so when my alarm went off at 4:30 am, I wondered why in the world am I doing this on my day off, I could be sleeping in, followed by a cup of coffee, relaxing in the park, capped off with an afternoon bbq…no fuss, no muss.

Pedro & Mason, the two brave souls from Team OG Sack doing the ride with me, showed up at my place at 5 am on the dot; which was impressive considering the time of day. As soon as I got in the car, we joked around about old times and I started feeling better about my decision to ride for 8 hours up several mountain passes.

The triple bypass took us through some of the most gorgeous parts of Colorado, the first stage started with a climb up Squaw Pass & Juniper Pass, ending with a descent into Idaho Springs where […]

Introduction of OG’s Hat Line

We figured that hats and bags are two things that compliment themselves well, for women and men. So we designed our first three hats.

These hats are made to be a little heavier for fall and winter. There is a khaki corduroy hat, a clean and crisp black hat, & a ‘washed’ gray hat.  Each has a leather logo on the front with a leather adjustable strap in the back. All three have a green ‘under bill’ to represent the green in our name and the tree that we planted for each hat sold.

We made them with the idea that they can be dressed up. Hats don’t have to be limited to bad hair days and pure laziness. We designed them to be fashionable and versatile.

We hope you enjoy them & look forward to designing more styles.

OG Sack was on Colorado’s Best

A few weeks back, Colorado’s Best did a feature on OG Sacks. Everyone on the set was amazing to work with & we wanted to give a special shout out to Joana Canals, the co-host for Colorado’s Best. She was incredibly supportive and did a great job showcasing all that our OG Sack’s have to offer (removable/washable liner, triple strap integration, 1 bag 1 tree, etc)

Thanks again to everyone at Colorado’s Best, as well as anyone who took the time to watch our segment!

OG Sack Voted Product of the Year by 5280 Magazine

We are honored to be the editors pick for Colorado Product of the Year! Here’s the nice write-up 5280 magazine did about our product:

In our active city, owning an OG Sack is kind of like owning a puppy: You can’t walk more than a few blocks without someone stopping you to ask about it. The bright, versatile carryall ($75 to $85) can be used as a tote, a backpack, or a messenger bag and comes with plenty of easy-to-access pockets for all your stuff. Equally at home in the yoga studio, gym, backcountry, or even an airplane overhead bin, the homegrown OG Sack also comes with a removable liner (read: no residual pine needles from your weekend camping trip). But perhaps the best part is what you don’t see: For every OG Sack purchased, the year-old company works with plantabillion.org to plant a tree in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest.
