Genie in a Bottle

NEW SHIRTS! Part of my goal for ROMP Bags is to be working with my friends.

Matt made a few different renditions before we landed on this exact design. The colors are spot on,...

Here is where I am at. I have always had the intention of making a lot of stuff all at once and then holding onto it as it sells, that’s historically how I have operated online.

I always love seeing those out of state...

Hey! I'm Zach

Howdy, My name is Zach Sullivan and I am the owner and seamster at ROMP Bags located here in Duluth, MN. I love adventure and playing outside. I also have a passion for creating. Making things is in my blood, and there is nothing quite like turning raw materials into something that is usable. I was raised in Chippewa Falls, WI where my family still lives. Growing up I was always encouraged to play outside and get dirty... nothing has changed. I graduated from UMD in 2017 with a degree in Environmental and Outdoor Education, and have been working in the field since. I have spent time leading canoe trips in the BWCA, teaching outdoor skills to youth in western...
