Product Overview

The leather Grandfather Overnight Case is one of a kind. You won’t find another travel bag or case even similar to it out there. The 5th addition to the Grandfather Collection, the Overnight case is perfect for weekend travel. Plus, it is carry-on approved.

I designed the leather Grandfather Overnight case with a new “cool factor” that separates it from the other cases in the Grandfather Collection. The Overnight Case can be packed two different ways:

1) You can stand it upright, open the lid from the front side, and stack your clothing or whatever you’re traveling with that way. I find this way to be super efficient, as you don’t have to dig through the case to find your favorite outfit, it’s all stacked up right there in front of you. This also prevents your clothes from tumbling around and getting wrinkled when you’re carrying it.


2) You can lay it down flat like most conventional suitcases and open the lid up from the top side. 

The lid features two really big pockets that would make a great place to store charging cables, small carry items, medications, and maybe even hide some money in there so your wife doesn’t find it.

The Grandfather Overnight Case is ideal for 2-3 day travel and it fits in the carry-on bins if you’re flying.

The edges and corners are all hand stitched and all stress points are reinforced with rivets so it won’t wear out over time. Doing it this way takes a really long time to make, but they will last at least 100 years.

Leather - Our leather Grandfather Overnight Case is designed with real full-grain leather, and it's really thick. Most (low level) companies sand off the grain (the toughest most water-resistant part of the leather hide) to get rid of scars and marks so they can use the entire hide to make bags. What we do is just cut around the ugly parts and throw most of that leather away.

Lining - We lined the leather Overnight Case with pigskin, which is stronger and more durable than the cow skin. It’s also somewhat soft and smooth to touch, so it will protect any valuables from scratches and other damage. 

Hardware - One of the coolest materials we use is our custom 316 Stainless Steel. It's a fun one to research, look it up on Google. It can hold up to 750 lbs. So if your life is depending on something you're going to want it to depend on this metal. 

Thread - Our super thick thread is incredibly strong industrial marine grade, UV resistant polyester. It doesn't deteriorate in the sun. I really wish more designers would use it.

    Roads go ever on and on

    How much will it fit? I'm a classic Traditional dresser, so I wear chinos, OBDC and bulky sweaters. I got in 3 pair, plus three or four shirts and a nice big sweater. You have to be a little tight on the underwear and sox, but overall, I think they undersell the space. I'll get nearly a week in this alone.

    It terms of the quality, well ... it's SBL. Pretty much perfect in any way. Do check the weight - at 11 pounds you'll feel it.

    I imagine going through an airport, the firm rectangle under your shoulder will allow you to stack another item (not yet arrive, but hopefully my new Large Pocket Duffle) on top of it as you walk.

    It's a winner and I can't wait to fill it and take off someplace. You'll never blend in carrying a SBL case.
