Great to see you on here, Juan!

I purchased a navy leather watch roll from Capra a few years ago, and it's been top-notch for travel. Really great quality and Juan is very receptive to feedback and changes which is always a positive. Happy to see a luggage duffle finally made it into production too.
Hey Roikins, nice to see you here as well!

Since the watch roll we've made travel watch cases too. Might be looking into a watch box, and a single watch case. How many watched do you own? Which watch accessories would you like to see?

We're also expanding our duffles collection.

a lot credit slot…
How many cards do you carry around? I will do 2 and a debit card or 2 at any one time, and then a bit of cash and an ID. But I see guys with George Costanza style wallets all of the time. DO you mean, like, a vertical credit card case, one of those taller ones, with cards on both sides, or a foldover?

just tall ones, not really just credit card, but all sort of random junk.

I have 1 debit, 3 credit card, but then lots of rando, like company card, my daughter's school parent id, drive license, green card, some membership id for zoo, some for other random museum (all signed up because of kid), some other id to beep into garage, they all fit into credit card slot, that's why I use coat wallet

I still remember when one customer emailed me he loved using our duffle bag at the gym but would like to have a separate compartment for his dirty shoes. Do you feel the same way?

What started as a bespoke product, became a great idea. We worked together on the design, and eventually, I loved it so much that we decided to launch it.

Our beloved Substantial Duffle Bag now can include an easy to clean shoe compartment. It is quite big, so do not worry about your shoe size.

Does that open separately? dual or single zipper? I use flipflops at the gym (jiujitsu) and it would be nice to have them in a separate compartment, for sure.

I designed it to be a completely separate compartment. It has a two way zipper, so you can easily access it on one or both sides.

Hey there, really like your stuff--very elegant.

I'm having a hard time on the site understanding the layout of the sling? How does the removable divider work / how is it attached? I don't understand from the photos.

Also its unclear to me, but is everything made to order? Or do you carry some items on hand?

Hi dynemacron,
It's nice that you found our site and took the time to browse it.

The Fenek sling bags have a removable divider that completely divides the inside, it has velcro all around. You can configure the bag with one large pocket or two medium compartments. In the picture you see the Velcro on the divider flaps, and the velcro inside. Its not placed exactly in the middle, so there's one compartment larger than the other.

I'm really liking the Fenek. I almost pulled the trigger on an LV bumbag, as I like that style.
As far as color, what would you consider the most versatile? Something that would work with black or brown clothing.
If the navy is a deep navy, and sometimes it's hard to tell on web pics, I'm leaning that way...

For me, the most versatile would be the either Brown or Dark Brown, it would look good with your black or brown wardrobe.
We don’t offer the Dark Brown, but can custom craft it.

Our navy, one of the classics, is a bit lighter than the traditional deep navy, but still a great option.

After the last months of traveling for work, I can tell you that my Gazeli briefcase has been my 2022 essential. It has been my faithful business partner.

It has a large pocket perfect for my MacBook Pro, my AirPods Max, and my notebook (you never know when product design pops up in your mind). Plus room for random extras like a snack, papers, and maybe a kindle.

And my favorite feature, hand stitched cylindrical handles. A unique touch that feels comfortable to carry even if the briefcase is heavy.
