Whether you’re about to embark on a road-trip across the United States or planning to fly halfway around the world, you’ll be needing a bag that can handle it all. We’ve owned several duffle bags, but very few can compare to Buffalo Jackson’s Denver Travel Bag. Designed with the traveller in mind, they’ve thought of it all and made sure it’s durable for anything you put it through. Find out why in the rest of the review. Photography: TStoff for The Primary.
Right off the bat we knew we had something special on our hands. The Denver has that perfect leather duffle look that we’ve been searching for. Its Sienna Brown colored leather looks like it will age perfectly and is something you’ll definitely want to hang on to until you’re ready to pass it down. It’s a larger bag with some weight to it, but not overly sized or too heavy to take with you on an extended trip. You can take it with you with confidence and get a sense that you won’t need to replace it for a very long time.
As we mentioned earlier, the bag begins with beautiful Sienna Brown top grain leather. You really get a sense of the bag’s durability from the heavy-duty nylon stitching to the thick YKK nickel zippers, which will keep your bag nice and tight. It doesn’t feel like Buffalo Jackson cut any corners, they really wanted to ensure that this is a bag that will last the test of time. On the outside of the bag you’ll find two leather carry handles and convenient exterior pockets on the front, back and sides of the bag which can be secured with a buckle. If a shoulder strap is what you’re looking for, they’ve also added that with a leather foam pad for comfort as an alternative to carrying it by hand.
Open up the bag and you’ll see a large compartment perfect for storing a week’s worth of clothing with ample space for shirts, pants and a pair of shoes. A zippered compartment in addition to two interior smaller pockets with leather trim make up the interior of the bag, which is protected by a sturdy canvas lining.
We’d really hate to label something as perfect, but we’re sure we aren’t the first to describe this bag as such. From the look and feel of the Denver to its rugged and durable construction to its functionality, there’s not much more we can ask for from Buffalo Jackson. It checks off all the boxes for the perfect travel duffle including tons of storage space throughout. We love exterior pockets with the buckle especially when you need to have your essentials within arms reach. At $400, it really is worth the investment and you won’t be disappointed with your decision. Click to here to purchase and learn more about the Denver Travel Duffle Bag.
