This is the leather bag I have waited a lifetime for. The duffel is vintage in all the right ways. Excellent craftmanship throughout. The cloth-padded interior botom is a nice touch. The leather is supple yet rough-hewn, stylish but casual. I can throw a pair of shoes in, a jacket and change of clothes, and still have room for a bottle of wine. Bottom zippered space underneath fits a laptop perfectly. The strap is solid, the handles are large and I like how they conform to the sides when they're flipped back, allowing me to look fully inside. Haven't used the small inside or outside pockets yet. Used for a family reunion in Sausalito one week, then took to New Zealand on a business trip. You'll travel well with it and look good at the same time.
