Paul Pryor was a major league umpire in the national league from 1961 to 1982. He umpired 3 World Series and 4 All-Star games. He was recognized as one of the best in his profession.
During an off season in the 70's, he designed a duffle bag for umpire equipment. He then contracted with a small manufacturing company in the Tampa Bay area to make these high quality bags.
From there he started his own company and expanded to include Baseball and Football equipment bags, a special line of women's carry on bags and more. In 1984 Bob Milleman joined Paul and shortly thereafter led a design program to include many more athletic equipment bags and corporate travel bags. They added a line of sportswear to the ever increasing number of products and began a new screen printing department to personalize the bags as well as the sportswear.
Bob Milleman purchased the company from Paul in 1992 and they continued to work together until Paul's death in 1995. Bob sold the business to Gordon Grunz in January of 2021.
Today the company enjoys the reputation as one of the leading producers of travel bags for professional, collegiate and amateur athletics. The corporate and institutional lines continue to grow as well. The products are custom made in Florida and shipped to customers all over the USA and beyond. We continue to stress quality and service in every bag we make.
