About J.P.L.C.

J.P.L.C.® - J. Panther Luggage Co.® was founded upon our passion for innovation, design classics, and products that are built to last a lifetime and beyond — a reaction against our increasingly disposable culture, where many products go from factory to landfill very quickly.

After design and extensive testing here in New York, both on foot and especially on the bike, our bags and accessories are hand-made and finished by craftsmen who've been making high-end luggage for generations. Our products draw upon the exacting standards and construction methods of the pre-1960s U.S., yet are very much designed for how we live now.

Innovative functionality and detailing — both inside and out — make them particularly suitable for folk who like to cycle, walk or travel frequently, as well as those who simply wish to make a stylish statement and lifetime investment in their luggage. Be sure to check out our ingredients page to see the care and attention to detail that goes into every item.

We hope you enjoy our luggage: It's built for life just like you, and will continue to look better with age. We hope you do too...
