    I've been looking for a canvas duffle bag for awhile that I can carry on a plane. I'm just annoyed that this one comes out to be $80 after adding in the strap and shipping.

    $80, really? Just get it. Bag will last you a while, get a fair amount of use and serve you well! Bags are generally quite expensive in my experience, $80 seems a steal to me.

    I have the same thing, except in the natural color (didn't know they had different colors now...). It's been pretty durable so far, and the canvas is really thick/stiff/heavy duty. It's not really exciting, there's one main compartment, no other side pockets etc, but its made to last and withstand anything.
    I would kop if it was all in the same colour. As it stands, I'd really wanting these two: [​IMG] [​IMG] Plus some Krane outerwear. The kop. It never stops.

    I know, it's stupid. But for some reason $12 shipping always puts me off.

    They make an all white version: http://beckelcanvas.com/products_vie...products_id=22


    Also, I'm just going to suck it up and get the bag. I reckon I won't be able to find anything else in that price point that's that nice.

    Top one is nice, what type of material is it?
    Looks like some sort of waxed canvas?

    The leather's cool, but the logo's weird. Maybe you could cut it off or something?

    You're balking at $12 shipping? Man, we pay like $40, and then wait a week and a half. It's all relative though. In Australia, it's either do that, or don't get anything nice ever.

    these patent hi chucks


    Chucks are played, of course, but those are damn cool. Thanks for the tip. Also, are you aware of the 30% off friends and family sale for all Gap company stuff, beginning 7/30? Might as well wait and save a few bucks.

    If you wanted you could probably have moderate success buying that beckel bag, dying it black and applying a wax coating. Would take some work but if you're bored one weekend it could turn out alright. Maybe test out the process on a $10 military surplus canvas bag first.
