Square-edged duffel bags can be tricky to carry, and eye-pleasing cylindrical shapes are hard to pack, but Lotuff’s # 12 model has the right compromise: rectangular at the bottom, tapering to a rounded top. This unnamed shape ensures that the bag is as comfortable to carry on the back (with the detachable strap) as it is to carry in the hand, while remaining stable on a rolling suitcase. It’s made in the USA from vegetable tanned leather, with each piece of the bag cut in the section that best serves that area (thicker for the body, thinner for the inside pockets). Then there are the details taken care of: the zipper is designed to extend from one end wall to the other, not just on top. This allows for a wider opening, which makes packaging easier. Zippers and hardware are made of solid brass including padlock and key lock, nothing breaks here. There is an interior zip pocket for all the cords and ties you need to separate them. The bottom of the bag is reinforced with a second layer of leather and the carrying handles are both riveted and sewn to support the weight of whatever you are carrying.
