Tiger Togs Order

bag Tiger Tog orders are almost here! Thanks so much to everyone for their patience. Between the storm, the holidays, and the lack of inventory in my closet, new orders fell behind. Next week is when the delivery will be. Don’t forget, the new sling bags are also available for just $12, great way to tote around your extra gear!
