Not long before our father died, my brother and I invited him to join us for a hike in Yosemite valley. He showed up carrying an old vintage leather bag from God knows when. Come to find out, it belonged to Frank, our father’s college roommate who went off to Vietnam and never came home. That bag, those two men, and their epic road trips are the inspiration for our Dakota Collection.
Dad and Frank took numerous weekend trips to the Great Smoky Mountains. Frank would just carry a sleeping bag and a Dopp Kit given to him by his father. Dad said that kit was basically a bottomless canvas hole. He once saw Frank pack it with a toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, shave cream, a bar of soap, a whetstone, two pairs of socks, an Iron Man Super Heavy Grip Developer, two apples, and a roll of quarters. Dad said it was a minor miracle.
Our Dakota Dopp Kit takes its cues from Frank’s. Ours is simple, no frills, anchored by copper rivets, and has enough room for a minor miracle or two. It comes in three canvas color options – khaki, tan, or navy – accented by tanned leather. Go ahead, fill it up and head out for the weekend. You’ll be just fine.
