Athalon was established more than twenty years ago manufacturing high quality sports bags, duffels and ski bags. Each bag was designed and tested by Athalon employees, who were avid sports enthusiasts. In order to pass the rigorous tests, the bag had to be incredibly durable and strong, but also had to work perfectly. The pockets had to be properly sized and placed in the ideal spot for best usage. The shoulder straps and handles had to be appropriately balanced and comfortable. Every bag had to be water repellent or allow for proper drainage when necessary.
The bags had to be lightweight for carrying ease. Each stress point, whether it was on a handle, shoulder strap, or bottom seam had to be properly designed and then reinforced to stand up to all stress demands. The toughest and final test was to produce a bag that was a reflection of the Athalon employee's commitment. It had to be something special to get their stamp of approval.
