Looking for a tan leather flight bag

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I could really use some help finding a good leather flight bag. I had my eye on the Onela one below, but he who hesitates is lost, and the company just liquidated its stock in preparation of dissolution! Something as close to this as possible would be ideal, in more of a camel tan as opposed to the tobacco colour shown here. Would like to keep this under $600. Any suggestions?

There was a really nice one on B&S a day or so ago.

flotos look nice, but if you search on this forum, they have a bad reputation for being low-quality. A purchaser on this forum had a floto that fell apart upon recieving it.

Have you had a look at Coach? I have one in light brown, and I think they are of really high quality. Much better than, dare I say it, LV.

that particular users feedback is pretty much the only negative comment about a floto bag, and that guy posted the same comments half a dozen times. there are a few positive comments on here about their stuff, and pretty solid ebay feedback as well. i have ordered a venezia duffle which is due to land this week, so ill try give you some genuine feedback after that. they have satisfaction guarantees so if youre not happy, you can send it back.

if you want to spend a bit more, tusting do some very nice leather duffle/travel/overnight bags

Now you see, this is why I finally posted after lurking all this time. Tons of great advice, with only one exception.

Green leather makes Baby Jesus cry.

Thanks for a great tip. At $299 this one is absolutely a contender:



My only beefs are the contrast stitching and a lack of external pocket.

Much appreciated. The guy is checking stock and is going to call me back tomorrow. $380 is excellent.

This is probably my #2 choice if I can't get the Onela:

$648 is on the outer limit, though.

Agreed, this one is like sex. But again with the no pocket, and at ~$700 too. If I'm paying that much, I don't want to crack the whole thing open every time I need my boarding pass.

That's the exact bag I have. It's a beauty. Worth every dime in my opinion.

I didn't either. It's a very nice bag, but RL gets a pass around here for just about everything. LV and the like get random "YUCK!" even in taiga, nomade, or utah... but a $3695 Rl doesn't get, "goddamn that's expensive!" I'd recommend to the OP to get the Lambertson Truex pebbled calf duffle that was being offered for around $200-300 in the Sales area. Great bag, great price, subtle styling.
