Three Strap Leather Duffle Bag a.k.a The Baby Beast
If our massive Beast Duffle spawned a carry-on, this would be it. The Three-Strap Duffle (a.k.a. The Baby Beast) is designed to hold a weekend’s worth of stuff while still meeting all guidelines for carry-on luggage. Also makes a great gym bag.
This Three-Strap Leather Duffle Bag is plain and simple with no breakable parts like zippers, wheels, snaps or buttons and built with as few seams as possible because seams are where all bags start falling apart. Therefore, the body of the bag is just one large piece of leather that wraps around and forms the whole body of the bag, with a 1-piece gusset on each end. This is one of the few leather duffle bags you can buy with only two seams. Most companies don’t build stuff this way because it’s really expensive to use such large pieces of leather (makes a lot of scraps). And we sew at only 5 stitches per inch so there’s more leather between the needle holes and fewer holes to start a tear. It is reinforced at stress points with rivets and hidden polyester straps to ensure that the leather straps and handles never ever stretch, even after 100 years.
Made with just three big pieces of full-grain leather, the Three-Strap Leather Duffle bag is designed to be simple and tough. The inside is wide open and lined with super durable pigskin, with a full-width, floppy pigskin pocket along both side gussets. Along with the main buckle, there are buckles at each end of the bag to ensure nothing falls out. Carry with the comfortable rolled leather handles and a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap.
Cows are waterproof, right? It’s because the top part of their hide has tightly woven together fibers. The skin has all of the grain still there (Full Grain). No scars have been shaved or sanded off to leave only a little bit of the grain there (Top Grain). Therefore, it’s the strongest cow leather there is and that’s what we use. And we use thick full-grain. It’s then lined with pigskin, which is tougher than the cowskin. Our custom 316 Stainless Steel hardware is amazing (please please google it). It’s the metal of choice when your life depends on it. The thread we use is the toughest I could find - it’s UV-stable polyester stuff more commonly found on ship sails and other marine applications where sustained extreme weather is a given. There’s no other leather duffle bag that will last as long as this one.
I designed it to be versatile. Buckled smaller at the first hole to be smaller or expanded way out jam-packed, buckled at the last hole. The dimensions are ideal for a gym bag or weekend carry on. Pair it with The Beast Leather Duffle for the perfect checked bag or carry on.
