This is the Gustin duffel. We make the products we want to use and our duffel is no exception. At this point, we’re known in the local San Francisco USPS location as the guys that walk in every day carrying duffels with lots of packages. After months of use and testing, we’re really excited to make it available to you.
Our duffel is made from heavy-duty, plain weave, waxed cotton canvas sourced in the USA. Although similar in construction to our Trucker jacket fabric, this canvas is much heavier. Coming in at just under 20oz, it's built to last and gives the duffel real sturdiness. Our first release is in a rich olive color. Waxed canvas is beautiful from the start and ages gracefully. The waxed coating allows the fabric to age uniquely to you, and is water resistant. Each crease, each bend, each event in your life changes the texture and color. It scars and marks as the wax gets rubbed and displaced, becoming slightly lighter in those areas. It’s truly a thing of beauty.
Complementing the canvas is thick, oil tanned, full grain leather. This leather is a deep oil tanned brown shade. The oiling process makes for unique highs and lows that are different on every bag and that match perfectly to the texture of the waxed canvas. The same leather is used on the handles, shoulder strap, and side patch.
We also ensure our duffel construction is functional, tough and elegant. The overall shape of the bag is a classic tube. Each end of the bag has an open pocket for extra, easily accessible storage. On one side, you get a small carry pocket secured by a beefy #10 YKK zipper. The carry pocket is backed by another open slot pocket. Leather carry handles are formed by hand from a single piece of leather that is stitched around the duffel and secured by a box stitch for strength. Small rectangular leather feet are stitched to the bottom of the duffel. The main compartment has leather runners that flank a #10 YKK zipper. It is open for maximum storage. A leather shoulder strap is adjustable and secured by Italian-made swivel snaps and d-rings.
Our goal was to build a bag to compete with the $250-$300 duffels we'd seen in stores. We're thrilled to bring it to you for $127.
