For extended trips, the only bag that will work

I was all set to go to The North Pole in March of 2020, but then corona virus hit so my trip was suspended. That being said, when I bought the bag I knew it was a very large bag, but then again I had never visited The North Pole. It requires an extreme amount of gear, down, wool and equipment. Although, I didn't get to go this year, the ONLY bag that fit all of my gear was the beast bag. I'm hopeful I will get to go in 2021 with the beast ............

LOVE this beast, with a disclaimer

I absolutely love this bag, however in full disclosure I purchased it with the two straps that convert to a backpack mode. The way we pack this sucker, I can't imagine not being able to do that. Nor can I understand how the current configuration for the handle would be an effective way to carry this. That being said, I cannot attest that I have tried to carry the new version or not, so there may be something that I don't know/understand. Ergo, my 5 stars apply only to the previous generation.

The Beast Leather Duffle Bag is a durable and functional bag made of premium leather, designed for travelers.

These large leather duffle bags mean business. This bag was built to last, from the tough full grain leather to the heavy-duty 316-grade stainless steel hardware. Perfect for the traveler who wants durability and functionality in a stylish premium leather bag, this large leather duffel bag is for you. This durable duffle bag features large interior pockets on each inside end, a very large main compartment, and a 100-year warranty. With dimensions of 34" x 14" x 15", the Beast Leather Duffle Bag is large enough for 1 person for 14 days, 2 people for 7 days, or 4 people for 4 days.

Design of this Large Leather Duffle Bag

These big leather duffle bags were 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 of this travel bag. 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. 

Materials

Cows are waterproof, right? It's because the top part of their hide has tightly woven together fibers. So the skin still has all of the grain (Full Grain Leather). No scars have been shaved or sanded off to leave only a little bit of the grain there (Top Grain Leather). 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 cowskin. This pigskin lining adds incredible strength combined with 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. No other leather duffle bag will last as long as this one.

Functionality

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 to your day. Seriously, don't be afraid of using your muscles. It's good for you.

Leather Bags Made To Last

We design and make our leather duffle bags to last. From the quality material to the craftsmanship, we put our best into everything we make. So if you are looking for a leather overnight bag with an adjustable shoulder strap, a leather weekender bag, or a large duffle bag like this one, we make them. Not good quality, but great quality travel bags are from Saddleback Leather Co. You will love carrying our high quality leather bags.

    Waiting for the straps
    The new design is lacking. I am vehemently awaiting for the return of the old design. This was a bag I have been waiting to purchase and was terribly disappointed to find they had removed the carry straps.

    Changes made not noted - where are my straps!!!
    I am deeply disappointed - I just received my beast duffle bag. It is NOT as advertised on the website. I purchased it for an upcoming trip to Africa. I was counting on the straps and ability to sling the bag on “backpack fashion” and for tie down purposes to a hard rolling case - I have travelled there before and know the advantages of flexible carry options.

    I see now there appears to be a significant change to the design with no real notice on the overview. Very disheartening – especially since I have been wanting this back for a couple of years now and finally made the decision to make the investment.

    I am not sure what recourse there is – the bag is very expensive and there is no real substitute. I should have reserved such a large purchase for in-person only.

    I have enjoyed my briefcase immensely and it has been a pure joy to own. ( with the beast I got a tow belt and a Guitar strap and am pleased with those as well)
