  • But what should you be looking for from a leather overnight bag?
  • Should you go for full grain leather or top grain leather?
  • Do you really need a shoulder strap?
  • And what style is right for you?

Here, we'll take you through some of the things to think about before buying a leather duffle bag.

We take great pride in offering only the finest leather weekender bags for men. We believe in honesty. That’s why our leather travel bags for men are made from real leather, ensuring durability and long lasting life. 

We do not compromise on quality. Our commitment to excellence is evident in every stitch of our mens duffle bags.

Our leather duffle bags are built to be with you for decades of memories. They are designed with only the best premium genuine leather available. They won't wear out, give in and ultimately are designed to endure. Just like you.

Our mens leather duffle bags are designed to cater to a wide range of people. All the way from young explorers to seasoned travelers. 

They are spacious enough to hold all your essentials. This includes clothing and other personal belongings. That makes them ideal companions for weekend getaways, business trips, or gym sessions.

Real Leather Only

The durability of our duffle bags for men is truly excellent. Our duffles are crafted from high quality leather. So they are built to withstand the rigors of daily use and frequent travels. 

The sturdy build ensures that your belongings remain safe and secure throughout your journey. Giving you peace of mind.

These leather travel bags for men are made from only full grain leather and top grain leather. That means only the very top of the hide is used. The top of the hide is the strongest and most durable part of the animal. 

The most common animal hides we use are buffalo leather and cowhide leather. Buffalo leather is thicker, heavier and will typically last a little longer. However, it is also more expensive.

Types of Leather

If you're new to the world of premium leather, you might be seeing confusing words like patina or grain out there. Here's what you really need to know:

Do you want a long-lasting, great looking, premium leather bag?

Then you need to go for either a full grain or top grain leather bag. 

Avoid anything that says 'bonded' or 'genuine' leather. These are just fancy terms for the lowest quality of leather.

Full Grain Leather

Confusingly, top grain leather is actually not the best quality available. Full grain leather is generally considered the best quality out there. 

This leather essentially comes straight off the animal onto the bag. It's the very top layer of the hide, as natural as it gets. No chemical processes are permitted.

Full grain leather is super thick and difficult to work with. That's why it's a little more expensive.

Make sure you're aware that full grain leather is 100% natural skin. It will have blemishes and imperfections. Just like our own skin!

As no chemical processes are applied, full grain leather is usually the longest lasting. It'll develop its own pattern (sometimes called a patina) over time.

Top Grain Leather

Top grain leather is still the top layer of the hide (the best layer!) and is really premium quality leather. However, this time, chemicals and finishes are permitted.

Chemicals and finishes will give a really even, smooth finish. For this reason, top grain leather is often the go-to fashion choice. If the blemishes and imperfections of full grain leather aren't for you. Then top grain leather will be right for you.

Top grain leather is easier to work with due to the chemical processes that can be applied. Making it usually a little more affordable. Note that it's unlikely to be as hard-wearing as full grain.

Quality and Style

We know that it is crucial that the hardware used lasts as long as the premium leather. You'll find only the finest metal buckles, rivets and zip pockets in a good leather weekend bag. Each part of our leather duffels are thought about deeply. This ensures your bag will hold up for decades to come.

When it comes to style, our duffle bags for men are unmatched. They have sleek designs. And they blend classic elegance with modern function. 

Choose from a variety of colors including timeless black, rich brown, and other stylish shades. There is a color to match your personal taste and complement your individual style.

Practical & Easy

We understand the importance of access when it comes to duffle bags for men. That's why our leather duffle bags for men feature well designed pockets. This allows you to organize your belongings. 

With easy access to your essentials, you can quickly retrieve items without any hassle. Whether it's your passport, wallet, or a favorite book.

Many of our duffle bags in leather for men have carefully crafted padded laptop sleeves. This means you can store your laptop computer in safety and away from damage. 

Check out The Denali. This duffle allows the owner to insert their laptop in a separate pocket. This pocket then hugs the laptop tight.

Some of these weekender bags for men also feature a separate shoe pocket.

If you're looking to go on vacation for a few days, you'll need a bag that can carry all your gear. For this reason, it's super important you take a look at the storage system of any leather overnight bag for men.

Sure, a bag with just one big interior compartment can work just fine. But, how much easier would it be if all your gear could have its own compartments?


Look for a leather gym bag that has thought out its internal storage system.

You don't want to lose all your smaller gear with your clothes and shoes. It's often really handy if your leather duffle bag has special pockets. Great for your tablet, laptop and even pens and business cards.


One that's always overlooked, but it can be super useful. Look out for a leather duffle bag for men with external pockets that make for easy access.

If you plan on taking your leather duffle bag with you when travelling, pay attention here. It can be super convenient to just take out your passport and airline ticket from an exterior pocket. Iinstead of needing to dig around inside your bag.

Nicely placed exterior pockets can really make travelling with your leather overnight bag a breeze.

Bonus! Some travel bags for men now come with totally separate shoe compartments. If you're going hiking during your vacation (or have unfortunate smelly feet), these can be a lifesaver. You can put your dirty shoes in a separate compartment. Then not need to worry about them dirtying (or stinking up!) your clothes or accessories.


Be super careful with this one.

If you haven't had a real leather bag before, be careful here. You'll find a leather weekender bag to be heavier than anything you've used before. We do recommend only buying men's leather duffles with a shoulder strap. This really helps with ease of carrying.

Aside from that though, be wary of the size of the weekender bag. For most, a 20 inch duffle will carry enough stuff for a couple of days. You'll easily get in a few changes of clothes, along with your shoes and any accessories.

For a long weekend, you might want to upgrade to a 24 inch. You’ll be able to take your laptop, a few more gadgets and maybe a few more choices of outfits.

If you're looking for a duffle to keep you going for up to a week. We recommend you look to an extra-large travel bag (sometimes these will go up to 28 inches).

Designed for Comfort & Adventure

Comfort is another key aspect we prioritize in our mens leather duffle bags. The adjustable shoulder straps and handles are designed to provide maximum comfort. Even during extended periods of carrying. 

Our leather travel bags for men offer ergonomic support. You can ensure a comfortable carrying experience. Whether you prefer to carry your duffle bag over your shoulder or by hand.

While our leather duffles exude timeless elegance, they are also adaptable enough to suit various occasions. Our leather weekender bags for men are the perfect choice for many occasions. This could include heading to the gym, embarking on a weekend adventure, or attending a business meeting. 

This allows them to seamlessly transition from casual outings to formal occasions. Making them an easy accessory for any lifestyle.

Our leather weekend bags for men come in a variety of shapes and sizes. 

Our travel bags for men can work great for a long day away as an office bag. Or even when you're away on work trips as a leather overnight bags for men. Or up to a week away in the wilderness as a travel bag.

Look closely for the storage capacity of these bags. Think carefully about what you need to use yours for.

Note that we also stock women's leather duffle bags. All of our leather travel bags are unisex. However, we find The Two Tone and The Carry On are really popular for women.

Duffle Care

Taking care of your leather duffle bag is essential to maintain its beauty and longevity. Regular cleaning will help preserve the softness and suppleness of the leather.

 We recommend using a leather cleaner and conditioner formulated for genuine leather products. Gently wipe the bag with a soft cloth and apply the conditioner in circular motions. This will help protect the leather from drying out and keep it looking as good as new.

Leather Weekender Bags for Men FAQ’s

Can leather duffle bags get wet?

Leather duffle bags generally have water resistance, but are not fully waterproof. Real leather has some natural water resistance, but excessive exposure to moisture can still cause damage.

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible. So if your bag does get wet, here's what to do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth.

Caught in a rainstorm? Let your leather bag completely air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying as this can damage the leather.

Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape. This also helps to absorb moisture from the inside.

Taking proper care and precautions will help maintain the quality and longevity of your leather duffle bag.

How do I look after my leather gym bag?

Treating a real leather duffle bag with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your leather duffle bag:

Always wash your hands before caring for leather. Oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend getting a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth. Then briskly sweep the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year. This will prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often.

Simply apply the cream to the entire bag with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using our all natural leather cream found in our store for our leather travel bags for men.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag can have a good, long life.

Why are they called duffel bags?

Duffle bags are called so because they originated from a town called Duffel in Belgium. The town of Duffel was known for its production of a thick, durable cloth known as duffel fabric. 

This fabric was often used to make these leather travel bags for men. The term "duffel bag" eventually became associated with the style and material of the bags. Regardless of where they were made.
