What should you look for in a duffle bag?

“Just get a bag and drop a dream in it, and you'll be surprised what happens.” Charles Nelson Reilly

Dreaming of travelling to, well, anywhere? Our boarders are finally opening up to air travel. We are allowed to go on holiday again, all be it to a very select list of countries, most of which have closed borders to us Brits. But let’s look at the positive side; Portugal, Iceland and the Faroe Islands are three of the most beautiful places on the planet and all within long-weekend distance. So let’s grab a travel bag and fill it with our holiday stuff, carry on only? That’s not a problem, with our selection of duffle bags to keep you looking stylish whilst conveniently carrying all you could need for a weekend away.

“Comfort and simplicity are two keys that I follow when it comes to fashion.”  Fawad Khan

Comfortable. We all want our fashion pieces to look good, but when it comes to function it just has to have comfort. Make sure you pick a bag that is comfortable enough to carry around for basically a day of travelling. A padded shoulder strap wouldn’t go a miss too, and convenient grab handles for a quick exit from security. Handy side pockets for your passport, phone and travel documents will make sure your journey through the airport and beyond runs smoothly.

“Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Durable. Fill your head with memories, but you may also need a strong cabin bag for your other stuff. Make sure your chosen duffle bag is going to stand the test of time and, more importantly, the test of check in. We’ve all had those moments when you’ve left it to the last minute to go to the gate and the flight attendant announces your bag will be going in the hold, ensure you have confidence that your holdall will make it out the other side in one piece.

“People want convenience.” Kimbal Musk

Convenient. Duffle bags are the perfect solution for all your carry on needs. They are roomy, have plentiful storage and, because they have a soft shell, can fit into over head locker spaces a traditional suitcase might not be able to. How many times have you walked onto a plane to find all the locker space has gone? All our holdalls will fit under most airline seats, so you can have your belongings safely and conveniently with you throughout your flight.

“Classic with a twist.” Paul Smith.
