My choice, too. I like leather, but I've found it too impratical for my air travels.

Yes, leather for travel by car. I hate rollers, and no longer carry mine for air travel except when I need to take two pieces of luggage.

i had a really nice leather weekender and used it twice before getting rid of it. I just felt like an asshole when I carried it.
I now have a filson which I abuse and love.

Leather ages better. Canvas is harder to clean and just looks bad when dirty

You would look like a doofus using a canvas duffel if you are dressed super nice.

You would look like a douche using a leather duffel if you are dressed super casual.

Maybe it depends on the situation?

This is why I chose olive canvas trimmed in leather.

If the leather were made from Komodo dragon scrotums, yes. But I don't see what's so ostentatious about regular cow or pig leather. Is leather really viewed as so high-falutin?

I agree. Croc or gator would be a bit much, not calf.

Hey, if it's good enough for people with loads of dough, why does anyone need leather? It's not even good enough to be pretentious anymore.

I live in a very rural location that forces me to regularly travel by bus. Bus travel and leather duffles do not mix; I cannot get past it. For reasons described in this Onion article.

So I refuse to throw a leather duffle under the bus.

That's right. I said it.

The pic reminded me of returning home yesterday to a crowded Indianapolis airport. Folks coming for the race. The good news is I'm headed out if here shortly, and leaving the excited race fans behind.
