Is This Premium Buffalo Leather Duffel The Best Weekender Duffel Ever?

They just don’t make luggage like they used to. Unless you shop exclusively at Kemo Sabe in Aspen, you probably aren’t going to find a top notch buffalo leather duffel bag at your local Target. That’s why we kinda love the Kodiak Leather Classic Weekender Duffel. It holds 60L of gear and looks like the type of rugged-yet-handsome bag John Wayne would carry to a weekend getaway in Telluride.

Whether taking a business trip, a vacation with the family or that fishing trip you’ve been planning with your buddies, we wanted to make a travel bag that would hold up under any conditions.

After looking over all of the duffel bags on the market, we couldn’t find one that had all of the features that we were looking for.  We wanted a sturdy leather bag, that would be able to withstand all of the wear and tear of a week in Alaska. But also something with a vintage look, that had functionality and simplicity. Something that would be classy enough to take with you on a business trip, or on a weekend trip with the family.

The project is surging over on Kickstarter, with over 200% backing.
