This Beast Leather Duffle Bag was designed for the Munson family. When we travel to Africa or other faraway places, we usually take four of these leather duffle bags, two leather suitcases and two cheap-o suitcases that we fill full of clothes and leave there, for our luggage. It is plain and simple with no breakable parts like zippers, wheels, snaps or buttons and built with as few seams as possible because seams are where all duffle bags start falling apart. Therefore, there are only two really big pieces of leather with a solid piece sewn on each end. And we sew the leather at only 5 stitches per inch so there's more leather between the needle holes and fewer holes to start a tear. The sewing machine is a perforation machine if the stitches are too close together. And every part that gets stress is reinforced at stress points with rivets and hidden polyester straps. Polyester is good and bad. The good part is that it lasts forever. The bad part is that it lasts forever and never decomposes. Polyester bedding makes you sleep bad. Polyester straps make your leather duffle bag last really long.
Cows are waterproof, right? It's because the top part of their hide has tightly woven together fibers. The skin has all of the grain still there (Full Grain). No scars have been shaved or sanded off to leave only a little bit of the grain there (Top Grain). Therefore, it's the strongest cow leather there is and that's what we use. And we use thick full-grain. It's then lined with pigskin, which is tougher than the cowskin. Our custom 316 Stainless Steel hardware is amazing (please please google it). It's the metal of choice when your life depends on it. The thread is strangely strong industrial marine grade UV resistant polyester thread. And thick. There's no other leather duffle bag that will last as long as this one.
I designed it to be versatile. Buckled smaller at the first hole to be smaller or expanded way out jam-packed, buckled at the last hole. The dimensions are ideal to be able to fill it up and be around a 50 lb. limit. You could fit a dead body in it, like a deer or wild hog or something. This beast of a leather duffle bag is for big travel where a lesser man's luggage just won't do. I know you could get one with wheels (that will soon break) but why? Get this and add a little exercise into your day. Seriously, don't be afraid of using your muscles. It's good for you.
Large pocket on each inside end.
