Nice leather, attention to detail on craftsmanship is a little shoddy, and hardware was cheap (excluding zippers)

Nice cowhide leather for the body. There was some edge paint on the handle that dripped down and was left as-is. The metal rings on either side which anchor the strap are already chipping away their finish. Strap was a fairly thin piece of leather, I can't tell if it was a split product that was different from the body of the bag or not. Zippers were YKK zippers, which is good.

Great bag; real-world review after three months of ownership

I've taken the Mission Essential Duffle Bag on trips to Scandinavia, Northern Europe, New York and the Pacific over three months of ownership and am now in a position to provide honest real-world review. Appearance: I think Deux Mains/Billy Billingham have hit the nail on the head with this solid dark coloured bag with very subtle blue accents adding to a casual appearance. I'd describe it as 'stealth luxury' where you can move through any environment without attracting unwanted attention. It's only sat in an airport lounge or hotel lobby where someone studying the bag will pick up on the craftsmanship, understated leather label with 'always a little further' and overall hardcrafted luxury and tough durability of this leather duffle bag. I look forward to finding out how the look of the natural leather evolves over years of intense usage! Practical application: It's got the right amount of organisational capacity with a number of integrated pockets and zips for passport, documents, shoes and quick access to bits and bobs while retaining a solid main storage compartment for clothes and/or larger items of kit. It could act as a go-bag though I personally use it as an all-purpose travel bag either on its own or to complement a suitcase. Stitching feels strong and the brushed copper tone buckles have a nice solid classic feel to them. It's big enough to fit everything you need for a weekend or for longer trips by plane perfect as carry-on luggage (in addition to suitcase) with enough space for spare sets of clothes and items to sustain you for up to 48 hours if luggage is lost or another type of emergency. Comfort: This bag can hold a lot of stuff so if you pack it fully be prepared to carry up to 35lbs through airports and walks to and from hotel, in and out of transport vehicles etc. I tend to carry it to full capacity and the leather shoulder sling is surprisingly comfortable. I'm not used to fully leather straps and was nice to discover a level of natural elasticity as you move and bounce. Solid handles are an alternative way to carry it and all in all this bag allows for quicker "get up and go" than a wheelie suitcase and immediate access to the main storage compartment with high quality zip with leather pullpatch attached. Overall experience of purchase and ownership: Without wanting to spoil the experience let me just say this bag is delivered with a number of extra personalised touches which fans of Marc Billy Billingham (like me) will definitely appreciate. It's great to know that sustainable materials have been used and it supports hardworking Haitans in the aftermath of the eartquake. Because only a handful of people will recognise this bag for what it is I really feel like I own this bag for "me". My personal satisfaction of knowing it's designed by a former RSM of b sqn 22 SAS who's rotated through Counter Terrorism, jungles, deserts and mountain deployments and knows a thing or two about having the right kit for the job at armslength. Walking around with this bag helps and inspires me to stay focused on achieving my goals for the trip I'm on. Whether it's a job or holiday!
