My husband travels in his position and must have a duffel bag packed and ready to go at a moments notice. He throws these bags around with not the best of care so we wanted a leather bag this time. We looked for one just the right size and weight and found it through OVERSTOCK.com. I admit I ordered twice, first one I ordered was too large to use as a carry-on (my fault) but we kept it to give to our grandson for a Christmas Gift. Something he had wanted. The second order was perfect and the price was GREAT!
