RusticTown (DF17ADN) is a premium, handcrafted 20-inch size travel duffel bag that is made of hundred percent genuine buffalo leather. It has a very good quality stitching, strong YKK zipper, adjustable strap, brass buckles, comfy shoulder flap, removable dog hook and a premium inner lining.
It scores 4.8 out of 5 stars out of 71 customer ratings on the day of this review, which shows a great deal of customer satisfaction. You’ll find a few pockets inside that will help you organize your stuff better and make it ideal for overnight, business trips, weekend getaways and gym use. These pockets include a zippered one on the internal wall and several cards and pen holders plus a phone holder.
The main section is quite large and you can put your clothes, shoes, travel items, books, tablet or mini laptop and more. It has a beautiful brush-stroke design and is offered in two color options of brown and mulberry and the price is the same at the time of this review. The shipping weight is 4.15 pounds (the bag itself is around 3 pounds) and measures 20 x 11 x 7 inches. It is shipped quickly via Amazon.com in a solid box and any damage will be highly unlikely to the bag.
It is an imported, made in India product as Rustic Town has close connections in the country and employ a number of artisans from Rajasthan’s desert area with traditional skills. These bags are made of buffalo and goat leather with totally natural methods and have an as little impact as possible on the environment. The bag is rubbed with veggie oil and has a smooth finish and natural but premium appearance.
YKK (Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha) zipper is made of nylon stitched into leather but it is the very sturdy thick nylon. It is a beautiful looking and sturdy bag with a premium look and feel, and that can fit in quite a lot for its size (spacious main compartment). Even the strap is made of genuine leather but is strengthened with a polyester/cotton woven material (sewn on the rear of the worn strap) and the short handles are leather.
You could use it on your longer than overnight or weekend travels if you are a light traveler. It smells of genuine leather and you’ll not want to put in items that will change this beautiful smell. The bag is stitched very nicely- you’ll find sturdy stitching on shoulder straps and handles. It may get scratches but will blend nicely into the different tones of the bag. There is a larger version of this bag that costs about 50 dollars more and that one has a long metal zipper. It is not cheap but you’re paying for a very good quality 100% genuine leather bag.
