Finding leather duffel bags is often tricky because most selections fall in one of two camps. They’re either wallet-friendly yet glaringly flimsy, or high-quality and timeless but the price tag would require you to survive on nothing but ramen for a month.
Jared Morse, an outdoorsman and proud Utahn, found the lack of reasonably-priced bags that could survive wear and tear so frustrating that he went ahead and founded his own custom leather bag company: Kodiak Leather.
A family-run business, their mission is to craft heirloom pieces that you’d be able to pass on to your great great great grandchildren — and even generations after that. The quality of the brand’s offerings is a testament to their dedication to the craft, as each piece is made with care by hand, inspected many times over before it makes its way to you.
A few of their bags are on sale this weekend, which we’re highlighting below:
