Traveling With The Rothco Briefcase Backpack

We recently took our all-new Rothco Briefcase Backpack for a spin around New York City and we have to say it was a dream. The diversity and 3-way design makes this bag extremely convenient for any of your traveling needs. The bag offers an easily adjustable shoulder strap, hideaway carry handles and D-ring backpack straps which will allow for easy maneuvering. The interior is roomy and spacious, with 7 zipper pockets giving you ample space for all your essentials, plus a laptop cavity in the main compartment that stows any laptop up to 15 inches. When it comes to versatility the Rothco Briefcase Backpack has got it "in the bag."

Check out the Rothco Briefcase Backpack here, along with some cool photos below.

Rothco In GQ

Why is everyone dressing like they shop at the Army Surplus Store, well because of Rothco! 

Check out this must-read GQ article about how Rothco and military surplus is shaping menswear. 

"Suddenly, the most influential label in the multibillion-dollar menswear market isn’t some flashy luxury brand owned by a French conglomerate, flush with advertising dollars and storied heritage. No, the brand at the heart of fashion’s turn toward the tactical is humble Rothco, a 65-year-old, 150-employee family-owned brand based 50 miles outside of New York City. 

"right now you have a really strong crossover between skate and hip-hop and street. For us the skatewear trend is really driving that, it’s the strongest its ever been. [Skaters] like a comfortable pant, they like a durable pant, they like things with authenticity.” Rothco has built-in credibility, which resonates with this market. “The fact that we’ve been doing this for 65 years helps.”  John Ottaviano in GQ

National Police Week

Did you know that it is National Police Week? During this week, we celebrate the lives and duties of the men and women in blue who serve our country every day. National Police Week draws in between 25,000 to 40,000 attendees from departments all throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world. It provides a unique opportunity to meet others who work in law enforcement and bring them together. They honor all of those who serve and hold a large memorial service for those who gave their lives while on the job during National Peace Officer Memorial Day.

Here at Rothco, we believe in giving back to our community as well as those who gave their lives for our community. We have since partnered with the organization Answer The Call, the New York Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund. This fund aids families of fallen first responders financially. Portions of all Rothco Thin Blue Line/Red Line/Green Line gear will be donated to the benefit fund at the end of the year. We feel it is our duty to give back to those who have risked it all for their service. For more information about the Benefit Fund, visit www.answerthecall.org.

You can view our entire collection of Thin Blue Line and First Responder Support Gear here.
