    Also, here's a recent interview with Frank Clegg that shines a bit of light on the origins of some of his designs. What he said about the handles resonated with me, it's one reason I never got on with the Filson duffle I had - that is, his handles nest into each other and make a smaller circumference to grip than those (like Filson) who use an extra piece of leather snapped around the two handles.

    I seem to have killed this thread.
    Regardless, I went for the Clegg small travel duffle in cognac. It's a bag that'll test your mettle for sure, especially if you're carrying it any distance. Beautifully made though, built for the ages for sure.
    Baltzar had the best price and I'm not surprised anymore; virtually everything I buy that's made in the US (I'm in Canada) is always cheaper if purchased through some other country be it Japan, UK, Germany or in this case Sweden!

    Buffalo Jackson recently had a 25% off code so I scored one of their Oversized Weekend Bags that I'd had my eye on for some time. Normally $299 which I already thought was a good deal but with the code is was about $220 shipped which was bonkers. It just arrived the other day and I couldn't be happier.

    I'd long been looking for an all leather duffel/large weekender but couldn't find one I really liked. This is the size/setup I was looking for but I'm actually happier with it mostly in canvas for the weight savings. It's stupendously large - like week+ capacity - with the tie downs all the way expanded (which is what I wanted) but can still be squashed down quite a bit with them tied down fully. And I love the large, dual outside pockets. I'm no expert but the leather seems good to good+ and the construction seems solid everywhere.

    If you're looking for Filson style stuff, I'd say they are at least worth comparing.
