Doctor Duffle Delights!
Design of the Doctor's Bag
This Doctor's Leather Duffle Bag was over-engineered with no breakable parts like magnets, zippers, snaps, or buttons. All stress points are reinforced with rivets and hidden polyester straps. This Doctors Bag is built with just one big solid piece of leather to reduce seams and one piece on each end. And we sew at only 5 stitches per inch, so there is more leather between the needle holes and, therefore, fewer holes to start tearing. Some leather overnight bags are sewn with thinner thread to save money and sew with the holes closer together, but then they start tearing like perforated paper.
Only The Finest Materials In Our Leather Doctors Bag
Our leather duffle bag is made of full-grain leather, and it's thick. Lower level companies sand off the grain (the toughest, most water-resistant part of the leather) to get rid of scars and marks so they can use the entire hide to make bags. We decided to just cut around the ugly parts and throw most of that leather away. And inside, we lined the leather overnight bag with pigskin, which is stronger than the cow skin. One of the coolest materials we use is our custom 316 Stainless Steel. It's a fun one to research up on. It can hold up to 750 lbs. If your life is depending on something, you're going to want it to depend on this metal. Our thick thread is very strong industrial, marine grade, and UV resistant polyester. It doesn't deteriorate when the sun hits it. I really wish more designers would use it. There's no other leather travel bag like it.
What are Doctor Bags?
Doctor bags are often used by physicians, surgeons, and other medical professionals to transport medical supplies and equipment. In the old days, when a doctor would do house visits, they would stock their medical bag with any item they may need. They would fill the inside so nothing would be missing.
Sure, today, you typically will not get a Dr showing up on site when you have the flu. Still, these leather medical bags represent a piece of medical history. They make great gifts for Doctors, Nurses, or anyone pursuing a future medical career.
Discover The Functionality of the Doctor Bag
The mid-18th century Gladstone closure goes right along with our design philosophy of build it for life. This was at the time when zippers weren't a thing yet, and they needed to keep your leather travel bag closed. It doesn't need to be buckled, but you can. We call it the Doctor's Leather Duffle Bag. But it's not just a bag for a Doctor.
They are also popular among collectors of vintage luggage. Our Leather Doctor's Bag is a beautiful example of this classic style. It is made from full-grain leather and features a Gladstone closure for added security. So whether you're a medical professional or a vintage enthusiast, this doctor's bag will make a stylish and functional addition to your collection.
The Benefit of the Gladstone Closure
The best doctor's bag is typically a Gladstone bag with two handles and a hinged opening. That is what inspired us to do in designing this classic doctor bag. Gladstone bags were first used by Victorian-era politicians. Politician William Ewart Gladstone was known for his ability to pack a large number of items into his bags, so it made sense to use the Gladstone closure for a design like this.
Other Uses for the Doctors Bag
Today, a Doctors Bag is often used as a stylish accessory or storage solution for various items. For example, they can hold makeup, toiletries, first-aid supplies, or even electronic devices such as tablets and phones. In addition, doctor's bags can also be used as travel bags or as diaper bags for new parents. Their versatile design allows doctor's bags to be adapted for various purposes. As a result, they make an ideal gift for anyone looking for a truly unique and useful Leather Duffle Bag.

FOR THE KIDS ABOUT A AL-SHABAAB ON VACATION
The last small plane we were on was from Nairobi to Lamu. From there, we took a 2 hour small boat ride to an island off the Northern Coast of Kenya, next to Somalia where a Kenyan friend of ours told us was a really super cool place for holiday. We didn't know about all of the Al-Shabaab terrorist activity and kidnappings in the area or we probably wouldn't have chosen it for our family vacation, but ignorance is bliss? The last night there was a little freaky. Okay, a lot freaky hanging out and discussing theology with the witchcraft practicing angel prophet of Islam, but that's for another place and time (or bag description).
So we finally get to our destination called Mike's Camp, run and owned by a British Kenyan named Mike. A charming chap who had made a barefoot luxury Gilligan's Island resort built almost entirely from woven reeds. The walls and floors were 100% woven, and the ceilings were thatched. All of it was supported by branches and sticks.
It was SUPER COOL. Unbelievable. And that's why billionaires fly in to stay there all the time. Of course, since we're not billionaires, we flew into Lamu and then took the little skiff to the island, but there are people who fly in at low tide, land on the beach, and walk up the sand dunes to the camp. It's where you completely unplug. No laptop bags allowed. To read about the Angel prophet of Islam and our walk through the terrorists, go to the Slim Leather Briefcase page.
Anyways, each of those small plane bush pilots that land on the beach or take people to Lamu, have a smaller flight bag briefcase next to their seat. It's just what you do when you need all of your stuff in one small cramped place.
