Color: Crazy Horse
Buckles: STANDARD ZINC ALLOY
Size: Small (18" x 8" x 8")

Opting for a duffle bag made from full grain thick-cut leather provides several distinct advantages over canvas or nylon options. The natural durability and longevity of leather make it exceptionally resistant to wear and tear, ensuring your bag withstands the rigors of travel over the long term. Its elegant appearance adds a touch of sophistication to your journeys, while the unique patina that develops over time adds character and personalization.


Unlike canvas or nylon, leather exudes a timeless and premium aesthetic that seamlessly complements various travel contexts, from business trips to leisure getaways. The tactile richness of leather not only enhances the visual appeal but also improves with age, creating a sense of uniqueness as the bag takes on a well-worn, personalized look.

Moreover, the inherent strength of thick-cut leather ensures reliable protection for your belongings, safeguarding them from the elements and potential impacts. The robust construction of a leather duffle provides a secure environment for your items, making it an ideal choice for travel essentials, whether clothing, gadgets, or valuables.

The No. 613 Large Duffle is for the intrepid traveler who craves a long-term excursion and a companion-in-crime for the ride. Crafted like all of our goods in full-grain premium leather, durable copper rivets, and beefy buckles, this duffle ensures you can pack the essentials for a month-long journey in one organized, stylish place – all while looking your best. The adjustable shoulder strap also offers hands-free convenience. 

 The No. 613 Medium Duffle is an essential piece of travel gear designed to hold whatever you need for a weekend getaway. By far our top seller of the three Duffle sizes we offer, the No. 613 Medium Duffle suits most needs. Crafted with some of the strongest leather, copper rivets and three beefy buckles, it can accommodate your Dopp kit, two stacks of clothes and two pairs of shoes without breaking a sweat -- add the convenience of a shoulder strap, and long-distance travel is a breeze. Optional features, such as an interior organizer or exterior pocket, this duffle is the perfect choice for the modern road warrior.

The No. 613 Small Duffle is the epitome of the universal utility bag, perfectly suited for the frequent overnight business traveler who seeks an alternative to the conventional rolling suitcase. It fits a couple of changes of clothes, your Dopp kit, and a pair of shoes.

Monogramming is available in all sizes. Add an optional interior leather divider, which contains small pockets to keep your cords, phone, or keys handy and organized. Handmade Copper Buckles are an optional feature as well. These buckles are painstakingly hand-forged from pure copper by a metal smith in Montana.


Handcrafted in our Charlotte, NC studio.

Product information

At ColsenKeane, we select the best US-sourced Full Grain Chrome Tanned or Veg Tanned Cowhides, and Full Grain Aniline Buffalo hides for our products. We only use Full-Grain leather, which is the highest quality leather you can get; far superior to the “genuine leather” commonly used by larger brands. Our goods are built from 5/6 oz or 8/9 oz leathers, depending upon the requirements of the product. We also use the most durable hardware in the industry, and offer handmade Copper buckles and hardware as an upgrade on many bag and belt items.

Our handmade Copper buckles are painstakingly hand-forged from pure copper by a metal smith in Montana. Copper hardware and buckles is an allergen-free option for your products and incurs a slight upcharge. 

The Care & Keeping of Your ColsenKeane Leather Good:

So you bought a new Satchel and you're wondering how to take care of it?

You don't need to do anything at all for at least 4-6 months. Your leather good comes packed with the oils it needs to perform.

At the 4-6 month mark, we recommend a gently applied coat of Saddle Soap (available for purchase here). We suggest you do this with our Liquid Saddle Soap.  

Please note that an application of Saddle Soap will darken the leather, just like age and patina does.

1. To apply Saddle Soap, take a clean soft cloth and gently apply the solution in a circular motion into your leather good.  You may wish to begin at the bottom of the bag, in order to see how the Saddle Soap will affect the hide.

2. Let it dry 2-3 hours, or overnight if you want to be certain and it's ready to go.

3. Reapply again every 3-4 months. 

We can only recommend Saddle Soap on our products. Though you may surely be able to use them on other leather goods purchased elsewhere, or on larger items like chairs or sofas, we can not guarantee the results and therefore would not be able to recommend it. 


Should your Satchel have some years and wear-and-tear on it, you may need a small overhaul. In that case, let us refresh your Satchel for you.
We offer a Refresh Your Satchel package during which we will give your well-loved ColsenKeane Satchel a thorough once-over and cleaning. We will use our liquid glycerine saddle soap to thoroughly clean and condition your bag; carefully inspecting each rivet and each stitch and repairing anything found, to ensure the continued integrity of your go-to companion.

F.A.Q.

Got questions? We've got answers!

How can I learn more about the leather you use?

Please see this page to learn everything about our leather and how to care for it.

What does your monogramming entail?

We offer optional monogramming on our leather products. Please note that we use only one font: all minimalist capital letters that measure 1/4" tall (see photos below for reference). As such, we recommend you use a [first initial/middle initial/last initial] format. 

Please note that our monograms, just like the crafting of all of our leather products, are done by hand. As such, please allow room for slight imperfections as that is, indeed, part of the hand-crafted experience.

In the interest of accuracy, we do not advise using more than 3-4 letters, at most. The cost of monogramming is $20 for up to 3 letters. Any letters over 3 are an additional $5 per letter. 

We're sorry, but we do not monogram any non-ColsenKeane products.

 
 
When can I expect my order to ship?

We appreciate that you value traditional hand craftsmanship, durable thick-cut construction, and the quality you can't find in a big-box store or massive e-commerce corporations. Your leather goods from ColsenKeane will be unlike any others you've purchased; each is given to a leathersmith to cut, punch, and stitch by hand after your order is placed.

Please understand that as such, we ask for a minimum of 14 business days to produce your order to our standards. If there is a particular deadline you need your order to be crafted by, please let us know right away by emailing us at info@colsenkeane.com and we will provide options for a payable rush fee in order to prioritize your order.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY LEATHER GOODS?

Please see this page to learn about how to care for your leather.

I don't see exactly what I want. Do you take custom orders?

Please see this page for everything you ever wanted to know about custom projects with ColsenKeane.

Do you repair leather items from other makers or vintage leather goods?

No, we don't offer leather repair. Our business is about designing and handcrafting heirloom-quality leather goods. We only repair our own products. We also (sadly) don't have a resource for who you can reach out to for repairs. It likely depends upon the item. For instance, leather shoes or bags? A "shoe cobbler" may be able to help (google "shoe cobblers near me" to find one and ask). Leather jacket or pants? A "tailor" that works with leather clothing could potentially help. A rip in your leather chair? Maybe a furniture repair person? And so on.
