Fed up hauling awkward unwieldy luggage? Wish you had another pair of hands? Designed by pro riders, airline baggage handlers, and engineers. The Douchbags team have put together a clever award-winning package - Ease of use, tough fabrics and modular design makes this the ultimate in luggage for all seasons.

Some travels require more gear than others. Whether it is about going away for a long time, or just going really, really far away, the Big Bastard 90L has space enough to bring the necessary gear. This roomy stroller is made for the long adventures.

 

The whole Big Bastard opens in one single motion, providing easy access to whatever is needed – just like having an own cargo container on the go. Mesh pockets along the insides of the bag, in addition to a top pocket on the outside, ensure that any small objects stay in place.

Despite its 90-liter size, the Big Bastard is light on its toes. Big wheels and a sturdy, two-stage retractable handle allow for smooth navigation. Convenient side- top- and bottom handles ensure safe and comfortable handling and carrying.

The Big Bastard loves to carry as much weight as possible. The patent pending Hook-up system lets either the Base 15L, Hugger 30L or Hugger 60L hook up to its back, leaving human shoulders free from weight.

Inspired by how the human rib cage protects the body’s most valuable organs, the patent pending Rib Cage construction in the Big Bastard protects the gear inside. The Rib Cage construction is composed of strong and lightweight ABS ribs, providing protection and support.

The Douchebags concept was born in the summer of 2009 during a week of sunny glacier skiing and epic surf in the beautiful western part of Norway. During that week, twin-tip legend and GS skier Jon Olsson met up with product engineer and entrepreneur Truls Brataas, and the two discovered a mutual passion for action-sports, traveling and smart product design. With the exclusive goal of having fun, while creating outstanding products, the two initiated the Douchebags project.

With Jon traveling more than 300 days a year for the past 10 years, the two knew right from the very beginning that they wanted to design new types of travel bags that reflected the needs of a modern explorer. The two interviewed 150 skiers, snowboarders and surfers to find out what the core user really wanted in a travel bag. They even went to airline companies and worked together with baggage handlers to learn how to make bags better suited for travel.

All of this research resulted in the discovery of five important needs that a modern gear bag should address:

Length adjustment system, so one bag will fit every type of gear

Low weight, to accommodate the needs of travelers and airlines

Solid protection, to make sure your gear come out all right

Compressible design, to solve the storage problem when not in use

Innovative, new carrying system

 

To fulfill these needs, the two had to develop new technology. By involving ski bum and award winning product designer Per Finne and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the team developed a patented technology that made all of their traveling dreams come true.

The founders sewed the first prototypes themselves, before new ones were made in a laboratory at the University. These prototypes were then brought to a firm that manufactures bags for the Norwegian military where they were inspected and improved to make sure the construction was as durable as possible. New prototypes were made and unveiled to the public for the first time, and ended up becoming a finalist for Innovation of the Year at the largest sporting goods trade show in the world, ISPO, in Munich, Germany. Sales went through the roof, and the company went global within its first winter selling out all products in only two months.

Today, the company is based as close to the Norwegian mountains as possible, and we are working with what we truly love:

“Providing the best travel equipment for epic adventures, all around the world.”
