Appears to be well made of full grain leather and of high quality. I would purchase from this company again. Shipping was paid and quick. No smell to leather that was objectionable. High quality zippers with leather tabs and shoulder strap included with good hardware. I was 100% pleased with this transaction.
The item is good quality.
Looks great, lots of room. Pockets where they need to be for access of thins like cell phone, iPad, music or magazines
The bag arrived last night and it took 6 days for shipping. Not bad at all. I bought it for my boyfriend as a weekender in 24”. It’s perfect. Color and quality and it’s so well made. The stitching and overall details and lining and wide opening on top are really really what I was looking for. He will enjoy this bag for many years and it’ll get better as he breaks it in for many enjoyable weekends ahead of us and I’ll enjoy this look on him just as much. It’s beautiful. It’s this richness that it presents and of course the lifestyle going along with it.
I love the material, the finish and the overall appearance of this bag. The stitching looks sturdy and the inner liner is smooth and attractive. The bag has a nice rugged look that suits me well. I chose that particular model because I wanted the pockets to close completely and securely with a zipper (as opposed to pockets that close with a belt-like closure) so nothing small can get out. I chose the 20 inch bag to fit in the overhead baggage compartments during air travel. This bag is compact but it can still take all the essentials needed for a small weekend outing.
It was a Christmas gift for my fiancé and he absolutely loved it! I really liked the look and feel of it. I would highly recommend James Leather to anyone serious about nice leather. I will definitely be a return customer. Thank you so much
Ordered the barrel style for our son for Christmas. Arrived in a timely matter and it’s exactly what we wanted. Great quality for sure.
Wish I had purchased the 24" instead of the 20", but do love it!
I purchased the bag to tie down on the back seat of my motor cycle for traveling with my wife my saddle alone does not hold enough; so now perfect! The quality more than I expected absolutely incredible love it! A special thanks to the craftsman/woman
Just opened it so I need to fill it for the right shape but outstanding quality!!!! This is the real deal at a fantastic price. I think this accessory will be with me a very long time. 24 inch version is perfect, holds my change of clothes, laptop, and lunch :)
I have mounted it on my motorcycle. Many friends have complimented me on it. I expect many years of service. Workmanship appears to be excellent. Totally happy.
Excellent quality bag. Shopped around a lot for a nice looking gym bag that would be durable, high quality, super nice looking, and have a good number of pockets. The barrel shape is excellent for a gym bag because it has a bit of an old school, classic look. I bought several other bags before settling on this one and found that other duffels with top grain leather were either made thin and flimsy goat leather, or were too formal looking for the gym. This bag is a great compromise. The only slight downside is that the leather is pretty thick and a little bit stiff right now. However, I anticipate that it will become more supple over time.
GREAT bag! Well designed. Well manufactured. Well done, guys. ... Shipping was a bit slow, but probably due to COVID mailing difficulties.
The bag fulfills all my needs and presents a good compact style that I have been looking for a long time. I think I will need another one for my brother in the future. Will test this one for a month before I order one more.
this bag rocks
bought this with some trepidation...
