Zion Bags was founded by Keith Poulson and Shawn Stevens, who were determined to create the best missionary bag possible. The journey began over 35 years ago when Shawn, a recent convert, met Keith in a singles ward. They maintained their friendship over the years and Shawn, when shopping for a missionary bag for his youngest son's mission, realized there wasn't a high-quality bag that could function specifically as a missionary bag.
Knowing Keith was an award winning designer in this category, Shawn called him and Zion Bags was born with the mandate that they would create the very best missionary bag possible.
Shawn and Keith brainstormed, talked with friends and family, returned and actively serving missionaries and finally, the LDS retailers who are on the front line of working with and prepping outgoing missionaries. All this in an effort to understand the needs of missionaries. With this information they created their first bag, the Endure Missionary Bag. The response was overwhelming and overnight the Endure quickly became the most widely distributed missionary bag ever. The Harvest and Embark bags soon followed. Opportunity and preparation had collided.
Zion Bags is committed to building the best made, most durable and functional missionary bags available; unmatched by anyone for their comfort, performance and safety in the field. They are currently the #1 selling bag in all Utah missionary outlets and stores.
