Our Story

Letterman Bags first started on the car ride home from our son’s end-of-season football banquet. During the summer, he had made it his goal to make the varsity team. He worked his butt off for months and it ultimately paid off...he earned his spot. At the banquet, we were beyond proud of him as a he walked onstage to receive his varsity letter, the culmination of all his hard work. 

In the car, I asked him, “What size letterman jacket do you want?”  His responded, “No thanks mom. I never wear a jacket. It would just hang in the closet.” I replied, "Well, what are you going to do with your letter then?” He just shrugged his shoulders……

That’s when we decided we weren’t getting out of the vehicle until we came up with a new idea! I thought, “How crazy is this? Was there really nothing else?"

Then it hit us…a backpack, but it couldn’t be just an ordinary backpack. It had to be a Letterman Bag. One that was as high quality as the jacket. Something that could be personalized, embroidered, and had the option to add patches and pins to as well. A bag that varsity achievers could make their own and be proud of. Furthermore, we decided it had to be made in the U.S.A.  American traditions should be made in America!


After months of hard work, designing, searching for the right materials and filing patents…We proudly introduce the Letterman Bag!
