    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.

    Any suggestions for a reasonably priced black duffle bag?

    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.

    All leather, from Costco. Indestructible so far . . . .

    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.
