    Hey everyone-

    I am looking for a duffel bag, either waxed canvas or leather, for weekend trips and am having trouble making decisions. I am pretty keen on this but am open to suggestions. My budget is less than $1,000 though I would go slightly above for something very very nice.

    What does everyone else use for short weekenders?

    Thanks for your help.

    used cavalier bag from gurka... will last for the rest of your life and classy. New they are 1250 in NYC but slightly used you can catch one for 300-400. Great zippers, great durable and thick leather. waterproof lining.... check them out.

    Filson medium duffle.

    I love mind and when it gets dirty I just tough it in the wash. Tough as nails and spacious.
