Durable, worn in canvas salvaged from a WWII era US military duffle bag has been thoughtfully reworked into a versatile carryall.
Fully lined with beige cotton canvas, this bag features a large interior pocket (9" x 11") that will comfortably hold a wallet and phone, toiletries, notebook etc.
Leather boot, handles and buckle straps are made from beautiful, top grain cow hide. This leather is tough enough to last a life time, but soft and supple enough for comfort.
Metal feet on the base of the bag are great for wear and tear protection when traveling while a water resistant fiberboard interior bottom panel and a lightweight aluminum frame help to retain the bag's shape while on the go.
Features an adjustable, removable leather shoulder strap with durable metal hardware.
Materials: Canvas | Leather | Metal Feet
Measures approximately 17" wide x 13" tall x 7" deep
