In 2009 I ran my first 100 mile race: Western States 100. Not wanting to use wasteful plastic sacks for drop bags, my good friend and pacer, Mark Gilligan, gave me some small canvas bags to use. To my dismay, it was such an ordeal trying to find things in a hurry (or even if I wasn’t in a hurry for that matter) because the bag was basically a black hole and all its contents a jumbled mess. Afterwards, wanting to invest in something organized and durable that I could use for future events, I looked at the market and to my surprise found that there was nothing specific that was simple, yet, all encompassing for the needs of a super-organized, durable drop bag. I decided that with my underutilized background in art/product design, I would create something that I would want, with all these elements in mind.
So… now you’ve got the Victory Bags, and yes my name is Victor, funny how that worked out.
In addition to the Victory Bags, I’ve also focused my attention on working to further innovate the design of pack technology, as well as hydration systems. Obviously no small feat.
Beginning with the Victory Bags, it’s finally within your reach to have the perfect sports utility bag that allows you to- get in, get out, and get moving… that’s our story and we’re sticking to it!
