Rationale

Typical travel bags are big, clunky, noisome and troublesome. They feel like “luggage” when you are “lugging” them around. Many bags have useful features, yet they all seem to be lacking one. Or, on the flip side, many have far too many pockets or closures to make them practical for everyday use.

Development

The Mile One is the first travel bag designed by Black Mile founder Charley with his friend and admitted gear geek, Dan. Based on our experiences traveling the globe and testing gear from dozens of manufacturers, we worked through countless prototypes to create the Mile One.

We kept everything we liked and got rid of everything we didn’t like — or need — in the process. The result is a minimalist design that maximizes versatility through a multi-functional approach.

Features

Backpack, shoulder pack or duffle Multi-function design allows you to configure the pack based on use and load.
Opens like a suitcase Easily access the contents without “digging” to get to the bottom of the bag.
