Saddleback Leather Side Pocket Duffel Review
This Saddleback Leather Side Pocket Duffel took Dave Munson, the designer four years, over 14 attempts and some development expenses to create this stunning and exquisite duffel bag.
It is surprised that this bag has no snaps, zippers, and other fragile elements. Therefore, this makes the duffel bag so unique that you should have one in your collection.
Your belongings will be well-organized as it has many pockets, especially the two large unlined external side pockets which are designed to let you access your travel accessories easily.
You can carry this bag as a crossbody or backpack instead of using the top handle that the metal bar riveted it for increasing durability.
Additionally, it can fit in most of the airplane’s overhead bin. According to the manufacturer, it covers with a 100-year warranty.
- 100% thick full-grain boot leather
- No zippers and snaps at all
- Double-stitched every single stress point
- Hidden nylon strapping to strengthen and riveted the bag
- 20″ x 10″ x 11″ inches
I purchased this bag six months ago, and I took it to my oversea business trips for about five times if I’m not wrong.
To be honest, it is quite heavy and doesn’t have any wheels. Since it doesn’t come with any zippers, it might cause some trouble when the airport security need to check your bag; you should get ready to open it in advance.
However, there is a trick to eliminate the problem; Before heading to the airport, only use the strap in the middle to hold your bag, so that you just have to open one strap when you reach the airport security. You may want to use the three front fasteners after that.
Quality of the Bag
Although this bag can put a lot of stuff into the primary compartment, it is quite cumbersome if you put too many things.
I do receive a lot of kind comments on this gorgeous bag. I can feel the unique style and design while I’m carrying my bag.
According to the manufacturer, I have to use leather conditioner to upkeep the bag every six months, but I usually apply it once per year.
Actually, the leather of this bag is quite rugged and tough; it is for sure the quality is still there after several years of using.
