When my Dad came home from Vietnam, as so many servicemen did, he held onto his old canvas military duffle bag. It was always a family staple for and we used it for years. Even as a kid I had a fascination with the top-load style and long shoulder strap that made over-the-shoulder carrying look effortlessly cool. When we were creating our line of leather duffle bags, the military duffle bag of my childhood was a top priority. Realizing that not everyone needs the massive capacity of a full duffel bag for military deployment, we downsized our version to be more appropriate for a few days away. The adjustable strap fastens at the top with a heavy-duty brass clasp and features an oversized sliding shoulder pad for comfort. Additionally, our bags include an exterior pocket and thick handle for versatility.

The military duffle really has a handsome look to it. It’s pretty much the size of a medium gym bag. So its a bit big for a daily carry bag and is a bit small to really pack for a trip with it. It only has the single outside pocket like a traditional duffle so organization will be difficult. The single strap is sewn into the bottom of the bag so I wonder with aging and stress if the strap will pull off, in my opinion it should be riveted onto the leather at the bottom of the bag like Handle on the side of the bag is. It is very ridged and is hard to close at first but I assume as I use the bag it will become more pliable. I am very happy with the purchase.
