Crash Baggage Iconic Travel Backpack

By Crash Baggage



“It’ll cost you extra to board that trolley,” said the hostess, stopping us at the airport gate. “We’re over budget,” boomed our CFO, grabbing the Icon suitcase and ripping off the front with his bare hands. “Sew me some straps and turn it into a backpack that we can board. For free!” So, thanks to his thriftiness, we created the first Iconic backpack. We design dented suitcases, backpacks, and flasks because we believe that the best thing you can do, when traveling anywhere, is to let the unexpected happen. Why? Because the best stories to tell are those that happen when you least expect them to. Just like when we went to New York to photograph a bench and found our US reps. Or when we converted a pop-up store in Shanghai into a party worthy of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas… We call these escapades Crash Stories and, to experience them, you need a Crash attitude. Are you ready to throw yourself into the craziest of adventures, without a care in the world?

The inspiration behind the first-ever dented suitcase.

While at the airport, Francesco Pavia overheard a boy freaking out because his suitcase had been dented. Just then, a commanding voice entered his thoughts and said, You will put an end to this heart-wrenching sorrow. Francesco tried to forget those words, but a seed had been planted in his mind. It was the idea that there was no point worrying about a suitcase that was destined, inevitably, to get ruined. Once back in his workshop, Francesco saw a beam of light enter through the window and shine upon a hairdryer and a hammer. And again, that voice carved out the indelible words, Dent them son. Dent them all.
