This Doctor’s Leather Duffle Bag was engineered with no breakable parts like magnets or zippers or snaps or buttons and all stress points are reinforced with rivets and hidden polyester straps. It’s built with just one big solid piece of leather to reduce seams and one piece on each end. And we sew at only 5 stitches per inch so there is more leather between the needle holes and therefore fewer holes to start tearing. Some leather overnight bags are sewn with thinner thread to save money and so sew with the holes closer together, but then they start tearing like perforated paper.
Our leather is the only the full-grain stuff, and it’s thick. None of the grain was removed (the toughest most water-resistant part of the leather) to get rid of scars and marks. We just throw most of that leather away. And we lined the leather overnight bag with pigskin, which is stronger than the cow skin. One of the coolest materials we use is our custom 316 Stainless Steel. It’s a fun one to research up on. It can hold up to 750 lbs. If your life is depending on something you’re going to want it to depend on this metal. Our thick thread is very strong industrial marine grade and UV resistant polyester. It doesn’t deteriorate when the sun hits it. I really wish more designers would use it. There’s no other leather travel bag like it.
The mid-18th century Gladstone Bag closure goes right along with our design philosophy of build it for life. This was at the time when zippers weren’t a thing yet and they needed to keep your leather travel bag closed. It doesn’t need to be buckled, but you can. We call it the Doctor’s Leather Duffle Bag. It’s not just a bag for a Doctor.
