It has been a busy couple of weeks for the folks at Pad & Quill. The company’s handcrafted accessory lineup got some major updates including new all-leather Rolltop backpacks and messenger bags for your MacBook and iPad. Before that, Pad & Quill launched its very first TechFolio to keep all your smaller gadgets and accessories organized. And there’s no reason to stop there.

Today Pad & Quill is launching what might be its nicest looking leather bag yet with the Heritage Leather Duffle.

Now don’t get me wrong, all of Pad & Quill’s bags are gorgeous if you’re into that leather, handmade kind of look. I absolutely loved the previous generation Rolltop backpack and still use it to this day. And yes, they do look better with age. Having said that, there is just something about the detail and look of the new Heritage Leather Duffle bag that gives it that slight edge.

This is where our standby “Artisan over automation” rings the truest, in the hands of the artisans where these leathers transform into something magnificent. We don’t trust just anyone to cut and shape the leather, only the skilled and caring professionals that know and value the age-old techniques of craftsmanship. Each artisan finishes off their work with a discreetly placed interior signature. True pride.

There are no special features you won’t find in other Pad & Quill carriers, it’s just the way the hand-pounded copper rivets and the rest of the brass hardware accent the exterior that really make it pop.

As usual, we are getting a full-grain leather exterior and soft leather interior with adjustable carrying handles and a “double layer leather reinforced” adjustable shoulder strap. The usual marine-grade, nylon stitching is in place here along with what Pad & Quill is calling a “premium Japanese engineered YKK zipper”.

This weekender duffle comes with a 25-year warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee on all three color options: Whiskey, Chestnut and Galloper Black.

Pad & Quill refers to the Heritage Leather Duffle Bag as a “Luxury Leather Travel & Weekend Bag” for a reason. Mainly the premium materials and that $545 price tag.

But, as per usual, 9to5Toys readers never pay full price for anything, so use code PQ16 to knock almost $55 off your total. You can also knock $20 off the TechFolio if you purchase it alongside any of Pad & Quill’s leather bags. More details on that right here.
