Man-Pack is a line of sling-style messenger bags designed for men. It’s an alternative to the backpack and briefcase, and to the traditional messenger bag and the dreaded fanny pack. The entrepreneur behind Man-Pack, U.S. Army veteran Aaron Tweedie, pitched his business on Shark Tank in November 2014. He went into the Tank seeking an investment of $200,000 in exchange for 29 percent equity.
While the Sharks applauded Tweedie after his pitch (even Kevin O’Leary showed the Army veteran real respect), the Sharks thought Aaron’s valuation was too high and, alas, he didn’t get a deal on the show.
Since then, Man-Pack has released new designs including Spitfire, a sling-style bag designed with gun owners in mind. On the bottom of the Spitfire is “a concealed zippered pocket to hold items such as your choice of conceal carry and other gear.” See links above. New episodes of Shark Tank (Season 10, 2018) air Sunday nights on ABC.
