    I know we have shoe p0rn, watch p0rn, briefcase p0rn, and in some areas pictures bordering on actual p0rn, but do we have it for duffle bags? Anyway, I was cleaning out the closet and decided to take a pic of the two I'm currently using: the left is a Prada V20S in blood orange (basically the same color as Hermes orange), and the right is a Lambertson Truex tri-duffle in chocolate grained calf.

    Please post yours as well!

    I use the original version of the xtra large size of this, from back when they were made in the USA and carried a lifetime warranty. I think the model was called the Mule. When I had an ice-axe or pole poke through, they repaired it with a full length kevlar bottom. It is a great bag. I can't personally vouch for the current production, but if they have kept up construction standards and service, they are topnotch. [​IMG]

    ^Fair enough! I travel a lot and spend 3 months at least each year overseas. I keep most of the things I need over there, so no need for a gigantic checked suitcase. But, a smaller duffle/carry-on fits the bill nicely for gifts and miscellaneous items. So, I quite like the idea of a smaller, "24-hour" or weekender bag.

    I really want one of the Valextra ones, but traveling by air and sticking it into an overhead compartment to get jostled about isn't exactly high on my list for a $4300 bag... (nor is actually paying $4300 for a bag.)

    I have a Trafalgar Norwalk Collection bag. It's a great bag, but definitely on the heavy side.

    Either is fine. More interested in the look and value [​IMG]

    These came up awhile ago in SW&D, I'd like to get one eventually. The history and price to quality ration make me think these will become the Quoddy of bags sometime in the future.

    I have the same bag (thanks to Chorse) and agree re the weight. Very nice for travel but difficult to use on a daily basis.

    I think it's part of the bag's charm. Not entirely practical, but that can be a good thing!

    I have two Krane duffles (the model is called the hawker, I believe) - one for me (black) and one for the wife (brown). They are waxed cotton and leather. Both work great as carry-ons for short trips. As both bags are presently packed away, I grabbed two pics off the web.

    After months of trawling eBay and finding nothing I liked in more expensive bags I purchased the following for everyday business use and short trips. Chocolate Brown No-Name leather Duffle/Holdall [​IMG]

    Picked this up from my boss who used to manage the local Burberry boutique. Not bad for $50.

    Cool bag. I guess the only issue for Burberry for me is that there are so many fakes kicking around.

    Yeah, that used to bother me but I'm kind of over it. I work in luxury retail and have friends at other retailers so I am fortunate enough to get some nice pieces at good prices. I know my items are real and that is really all that matters. If someone thinks something I have is fake, oh well....
