Details

These duffel bags exploit the functional advantages and great look of waxed cotton in an updated version of a classic piece. Durable cotton canvas has been permeated with a waterproofing wax to beef up its resistance to weather and abrasion, harkening back to technology employed by British mariners in the 1850s. In the (somewhat more) modern era, waxed cotton was used by the likes of Steve McQueen, Che Guevara and Lawrence of Arabia - all of them choosing this fabric for weather protection while motorcycling. Aside from its overall ruggedness, waxed canvas takes on a nice patina with age and use, very much like your favorite leather items. It is this characteristic of the material that gives our duffels their distinctive traditional style and feel.
Soft nylon webbing encircles each duffel to form the comfortable handles, but you can also use the detachable, adjustable shoulder strap if you need to free up your hands while traveling. The strap attaches with solid brass clips and D-rings. Between the straps on the front of the bag, we've added a slot pocket on the outside for stowing your boarding pass and a paperback, your gym membership card and phone, or maybe just the crossword from the Sunday paper. A two-way zipper closes the main bag.
The smaller version of our Waxed Cotton Duffel measures about 9" x 9" x 17", which is perfect for heading to the gym or using for your carry-on. The larger size is 11" x11" x 19", which will hold a good bit more clothing and gear, and is perfect for overnight trips or just stowing all your gear in one place. Whichever size you choose, you'll be glad to have a real workhorse of a duffel that performs well and has the looks of a true classic.
