This Side Pocket Leather Duffle Bag is over-engineered to not break. There’s nothing there to break. No zippers, snaps, buttons, etc. and each of the spots that get stress are reinforced with rivets and hidden polyester strips. This leather overnight bag is built with just a few pieces of very large leather to have as few seams as possible. And then we stitched the few seams of that there are with only 5 stitches in each inch instead of the common 7 or 9. We wanted more leather between each of the holes that the needles made. Who wants perforated leather, right?
Our leather is the strongest we can find. Imagine leather is like a roof. First, you put down the plywood, then the tar paper and then on top you put the tough water-resistant shingles. The shingles are the same as the grain of a hide of leather. It’s pretty much the top 25% of the hide. It’s the toughest most watertight part with all of the tight hard fibers. A lot of companies sand or split off the top of the hide with all of the grain to get rid of the scars and blemishes but remove all of the grain. It’s like taking off the shingles of the roof. You still have a roof, but it won’t last long. And then lined the thick leather with pigskin, which is stronger than the cow skin. And if this leather overnight bag weren’t strong enough with that, we sew it all together with our strangely strong industrial marine grade and UV resistant polyester thread. Nylon thread is cheaper but it deteriorates when the sun hits it. Our custom hardware is maybe a little overkill. It’s 316 Stainless Steel (please please google it). The clasps have been tested to hold up to 750 lb bags of cats without breaking. When we put the next cat in there, it broke. There’s really no other leather travel bag like it.
I designed this one with a good amount of pockets in it relative to our other leather duffle bags. And it has a big spacious pocket on the interior backside to keep dirty things apart from not dirty things.
Shoulder strap adjusts long from 34″-59″.
