The Penfield Oxon Canvas Satchel is made from a heavyweight 100% Cotton canvas and based on a traditional satchel design. The tough fabric ensures contents are protected while full leather trims on the flap and fastenings provide added strength for that heavy load. The chunky cotton webbing shoulder strap adjusts to provide the most suitable fit for all body heights. The main compartment is large enough to accommodate your laptop and is complimented by two smaller front pockets which both close with a strong buckle, making them perfect for your wallet and keys.

You'll be the center of attention walking into the office, the classroom or anywhere you show up with the Filson Leather Field Satchel. The Filson Leather Field Satchel is constructed from whole pieces of vegetable tanned Bridle Leather that's cut from the strongest part of the hide, strong pieces that will last a lifetime. Assembled with heavy bonded nylon thread these are handmade in small batches in the Filson Seattle factory. Filson says it takes about ten years to break in (Someone let us know if this is true). It features 2 expandable main pocket compartments, 1 interior business card pocket, 1 interior cell phone pocket and 1 exterior rear open pocket. The outside has 2 bridle leather strap and buckle closures with storm flap and secures with a brass latch and lock. Official measurements: 17" W x 12 1/2" H x 4" D
I'm in love with this Bison Leather Traveler's Portfolio by Duluth. It's rugged, refined, classic, has a great leather color combination and it's reasonably priced (I could go on forever). The Duluth Bison Leather Portfolio has rolled leather handles that match the seasoned leather bottom and accents. It also boasts premium bison leather construction, nylon interior lining, an adjustable shoulder strap, high-quality YKK zippers, two full-length interior pockets (one zippered) and inside accessory pockets to hold the goods. Duluth says it's tall enough to accommodate large documents, a three-ring binder, or a laptop computer (12H x 18W x 4D).
I also really love the Duluth Bison Leather Portfolio because it comes from a USA company that's 130 years old (100 years in the same factory). They have been hand crafting bags continually in Duluth, MN and each piece is painstakingly built by hand with the attention and detail. And with a statement like this: "We stand behind our work and are proud to offer a lifetime warranty...If the product cannot be repaired due to a defect in craftsmanship or faulty hardware, we will be happy to replace the item at Duluth Pack’s discretion." - you can't go wrong!
Since 1999 brothers Chris and Kirk Bray have been making some of the most beautiful and attention detailed handmade leather goods under the brand name Billykirk. The Billykirk (a nickname given to one of the brothers from their father) padded briefcase comes with an adjustable/removable strap, a padded body and uses Swiss Riri zippers for the main compartment and interior pockets. The hardware is a dull nickel and the bag is produced with with Horween leathers measuring 16" x 12"x 4".
Black weekender? Brown weekender? Why not pick up something a little more exciting like the Lotuff & Clegg Red Leather Duffle Travel Bag. This USA made (crafted in Massachusetts) Lotuff & Clegg weekender is made from hand selected ‘Origins' tumbled vegetable-tanned leather, contains solid brass RiRi zipper and hardware and natural suede backing to keep it looking sharp.
The only thing that strikes me about this bag is that it does not have metal feet to protect the bottom. Maybe Lotuff & Clegg weren't fully thinking things through or maybe the leather is so tough and buff that they weren't required? I guess someone is going to have to make the purchase and put it through a heavy travel season.
