I purchased this bag as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend (28 yr old male). I am SO happy with the bag. The quality of the leather is better than I expected. It is soft, smells like quality leather, and the color is perfect. All of the zippers, handles, etc were very well made. This bag feels sturdy and luxurious. I AM PICKY! The only complaint I can think of is that they way the bag was packaged, when I opened the box, it looked a lot smaller than I expected it to be. I even got out a ruler and measured the bag to make sure it was the right size - it was! After stuffing it full of clothes, it looked much larger and the size is actually perfect. I'm very excited for my bf to open his gift at Christmas :)

Bought this as a gift for my husband. He LOVED It. Got compliments the first trip we took from stewardess and friends as to what a great looking bag it was. No weird smell like others have said. Beatiful leather, very classy- great outside pockets for carry on!

purchased for new college graduate. stated that the quality was great. the size was more than adequate for weekend traveling..xtra pockets for smaller items were a bonus. color (black) very rich looking. would buy again. thanks overstock.com again.
I ordered this duffel bag to replace the nylonh this bag and let me tell you that I am not easily impressed. For the money it cant be beat. The leather is of higher quality than it looks in the pics, it has nice sturdy metal feet, and the zippers are very heavy duty. Plus , it has very handy end compartments and another auxillary compartment on the side. I couldn't recommend this bag more highly. Kudos to Piel.
I used my duffel for the first time Labor Day weekend. I really enjoyed it. It is made of quality leather, and will catch the eyes of others. I especially like the color of it. The duffel has ample packing space for its size, including zipper compartments. One "complaint" that I have it that the duffel did not come with a name identification tag. One would have been nice, particularly if it was leather and the same color as the duffel. Overall, it's a great product and worth the price.

This bag replaced a similar nylon duffle I have had for 20 years. At first I thought the bag was smaller than the original but it actually has plenty of room for a weekend getaway or to use as a carryon. I have used this bag twice now (weekend and plane trip) and held everything fine. Has 2 end pockets and internal zipper compartment. The leather seems to be of high quality and should wear well over time.
One star is too good for this bag but zero stars is not an option. This bag is not as described it is only 9 x 9 x23 this is fully one third less capacity than stated in the product description. The leather has a very unpleasant smell. Returned hopefully for refund.
Gave thus to my husband about 5 years ago as a Christmas gift. We are out of town for the weekend regularly ( 3 out of 4 weeks a month) and he needed a "weekend bag". I also bought him a much more expensive option from a famous catalog company and he liked this one better. It is roomy with numerous pockets and after 5 years still looks great.
Just received the leather Large Duffel Bag. The leather is a good quality and it is well constructed. The bag has 3 nice external zippered pockets (one on each end and one on the side) and one small internal zippered pocket. The will work perfect for a weekender bag, which is why I bought it. Some reviewers have complained that the 19 inch bag was too small. This one is the 23 inch and I wouldn't want to go any smaller. I shopped around for something similar, and this was the best value for this quality. It is of high quality, looks great, and I would recommend it.
Great quality! Leather has a very nice, expensive feel. Measurements are true (measured from bottom of bag). Great size for an overnight bag or all those extra shoes that won't fit in your luggage! Don't expect a large duffel for more than a couple days. Great for price esp.!
