Inspired by the classic military duffel bags referred to the servicemen of the day as "AWOL bags", the Duluth AWOL Bag ($200) is a modern take on the rugged weekender. It's made from oiled, full-grade cowhide, with a patina that only gets better the longer you have it — at least, according to Uncrate reader Brendan Ruane — and also features carry-on friendly dimensions, brass hardware and a YKK nylon zipper, cloth lining, and a single inner document pocket that's perfect for stashing your passport, cash, and other small travel essentials.
Bring all your cold weather gear with you on your next trip in the North Face Base Camp Gear Locker ($170). With a massive 77 liters of interior volume, this man-sized carry-all features a separate bottom boot compartment with dual drains, a rugged, weather-resistant TBE laminate outer, large D-shaped top zipper access, multiple interior pockets, a removable shoulder strap, and an ID window.
Inspired by the company's military heritage with looks that prove it, the Victorinox Mobilizer NXT Hardside Officer's Trunk ($520-$650) is kind of expensive, but is also built to last. It features an aircraft-grade aluminum dual-trolley handle with a Geluxe grip, urethane wheels with swivel casters for greater mobility, a trunk-style lid with a one-latch opening system, a large main compartment with adjustable compression straps and a removable mesh pouch, a hidden ID tray in the handle bezel, and more.
