Originally developed as a military bag during World War I and II, duffel bags eventually became associated with counter culture as soldiers turned on, tuned in, and dropped out, taking their military issued gear with them. The silhouette was later adopted for use in athletics based on the bags' durability and functionality. The Kennedy Duffel is crafted from premium materials that are designed to get better with use, over time.
Designed and handmade in the USA, the Kennedy Duffel is constructed from our usual heavyweight water-repellent canvas, lined with waterproof nylon, reinforced with a waxed canvas bottom panel, and finished with soft calfskin leather detailing.
Designed and produced in the USA, the Kennedy Duffel is equally functional for daily use as a work or gym bag as it is for short travel.
The roomy main compartment is made from heavyweight water-repellent canvas, which is extremely durable and gets better with use.
The reinforced waxed canvas bottom provides an extra layer of protection from wet surfaces.
The nylon lining protects the exterior of the bag from any spills or stains on the inside, and the leather accents lend a premium feel and understated sophistication.
The Kennedy Duffel has one roomy main compartment, an interior zipper pocket so you don't waste time fishing for keys or essentials, and a removable / adjustable shoulder strap.
