Travel with Duffel Bag: Why a Duffel Bag is the Ultimate Multi-Purpose Companion

Duffel bags have been a popular choice for travelers for years. With their spacious interiors, durable exteriors, and versatile designs, they have become the go-to option for many adventure-seekers. In recent years, the popularity of duffel bags has only grown as people recognize the benefits of using these bags for all kinds of trips.

Whether you're embarking on a weekend getaway, a camping trip, or a longer vacation, choosing the right luggage is crucial for a comfortable and stress-free journey. While traditional suitcases and backpacks have their own advantages, duffel bags offer a unique combination of features that make them a great option for many travelers. From their spacious compartments to their easy-to-carry designs, duffel bags have become an essential item for anyone looking for a versatile and reliable travel companion.

In this post, we'll explore duffel bags and explain why they are the ultimate multi-purpose companion for all types of travel. We'll introduce you to some of the best duffel bags from Latico Leathers, to help you find the perfect one for your next adventure.

Best Duffel Bag: Cabin Duffel

Picture a classic duffel bag and you'll probably imagine something close to the Cabin duffel. Our top seller, the Cabin is just like the name suggests- understated and sophisticated, versatile and comfortable. Accented with attractive contrast stitching, this duffle bag has an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap with a shoulder pad so you can make sure comfort is a priority, no matter how far you're lugging your bag around busy streets.

While a wheeled duffel can make it hard to tote around busy cities, the Cabin can be slung over your shoulder to stay close to you, making for an easier way to carry if traveling with two bags. Other duffel bags can be designed with cheap materials that wear out quickly, but the Cabin is crafted with 100% leather for durable fabrics and durable materials you can trust far away from home.

Best Duffel Bag: Charleston Duffel

Duffle bags are perhaps most widely admired for their ability to store and pack a lot of items in a good-looking package. The Charleston duffel has a large main compartment to transport your items, and also includes three exterior pockets for the smaller must-haves on your travel list.

While not a completely waterproof duffel, the 100% leather exterior will hold up to light rain and travel grime. The durable material also will wear well for years of adventures to come. Charleston can stand up to any rolling duffel bag, with a buttery-soft outside that makes for easy fitting into overhead compartments. Charleston also comes with removable shoulder straps when you want to carry by the handles for quick trips.

Best Duffel Bag: Denver Duffel

Looking for a lightweight duffel you can pack for weekend trips away? The Denver duffel is the perfect bag for you. This versatile tote bag can easily function as a carry on duffel bag as well as it fits in to your everyday schedule as a gym bag.

Denver features a convenient adjustable shoulder strap that is also a removable shoulder strap when you want to travel a touch lighter. The outside of the Denver has a front zip pocket for easy carrying your passport, cell phone or other items within an arm's reach. The main compartment of the Denver has two internal pockets to secure other important items.

Best Duffel Bag: Prime Time Duffel

A bag worthy of any journey- from a day in the country to a weekend beach trip, the Prime Time Duffel is the travel gear you've been missing. Two external pockets line the outside make for plenty of room to stash away electronics or headphones. These two exterior pockets also have double snap closure under the pocket flaps, for secure storage. Look closely and you'll notice impressive leather accents like the zippered and padded exterior phone pocket.

Take a peek inside and you'll be impressed with the Prime Time's fully lined main compartment with extended top zip for easy entry. The seven inch shoulder straps make for easy carrying on your shoulder or in hand.

Best Duffel Bag: Deluxe Travel Bag

The Deluxe travel bag is not your average carry on duffel bag. This bag is big if you are a notorious over-packer (we get it- you need options!). Whether you're headed on a weekend camping trip or week away across the country, Deluxe is roomy enough to function as your checked luggage and holds everything you need for your trip and more. If you like a zippered pocket, you're in luck- this weekender features six exterior zip pockets for organized packing.

Deluxe has leather padded straps for your carrying comfort. Made with Latico's full grain leather, you'll feel the difference in our materials, right down to the leather zipper pulls.

Best Duffel Bag: Las Vegas Weekender

Travel duffel bag meets business bag with the Las Vegas Weekender that's made to travel where you do. Accented with contrast stitching, the Las Vegas is made with our 100% super-soft leather that functions as a water resistant fabric.

This bag includes a large, lined front zippered compartment with two dividers to organize files, documents and other papers. Inside, you'll find a large open compartment with an extended top zipper closure with plenty of room for your neatly packed clothes AND any dirty laundry or dirty clothes for those extended travels.

Best Duffel Bag: Explorer Laptop Backpack

While not sitting firmly in the duffle bag space, we would be remiss to not include the Explorer Laptop backpack in our round up. With a spacious enough size to travel with for at least the weekend, the Explorer includes a laptop compartment and padded laptop sleeve that makes this a great work trip carry-along.

Functioning as a laptop duffle in disguise, this bag has backpack straps for those who prefer an actual backpack while traveling. The Explorer Laptop Backpack has six exterior, lined zip pockets for ultimate organization on the go.
