Kitanica: American Made Boss Bug Bag

If you haven’t heard about Kitanica before, prepare to be schooled. Once based in Brooklyn, they switched coasts about 2 decades ago and headed to San Francisco. Their product line is somewhat adventurer-explorer-outdoorsman based, making their jackets, fleeces, shirts, pants, shorts, bags and other gear ideal for people who prefer to be outside in remote places (and perfect for the protagonists in at least half of all original SyFy movies).

Most recently they've released a load carriage option called the Bug Bag; it'll help indulge your inner nawab-nabob even if you're just toting a tablet into Starbucks to read a little Tim Jeal.

More about Kitanica in their own words.

Kitanica is a word derived from “chitin” (pronounced Kǝi•tin), a key structural component of insect exoskeletons. Due to the overbuilt nature of our designs, we decided it best described our mission to make the most functional and durable gear possible.

Kitanica is a family owned and operated business run by Beej Cronin, his brother Chris Cronin and their cousin Leonard Riccio.

Beej Cronin is Chief of Design, while Len Riccio is Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, and Chris Cronin serves as Chief Marketing Officer. These three partners grew up together on the East Coast and have worked side-by-side for a lifetime on hundreds of different projects, constructing everything from a 2-bedroom home to tennis ball cannons.

Kitanica was originally formed in Brooklyn, NY in 1995 and moved to San Francisco in 1997. There, Adam Savage of the Discovery Channel's Mythbusters started wearing his Kitanica MARK IV on national television, and the world became aware of the remarkably distinctive utilitarian products Kitanica was producing.

Kitanica proudly makes all of its products in the United States using domestically produced materials. Much of the production is done in-house in Northern California at our Oakland headquarters.
