Nice leather. Everything else is crap
on January 27, 2014
I'm not sure how this bag still has a 4 star rating. Those people must not use their duffel very much because under regular use this thing is literally falling apart.
The leather rich, dark brown colour with a pleasant feel to it
The size is perfect for me. A good size for weekend trips or taking it to the gym with my jui jitsu gear, towel and a change of clothes.
I'm reaching here, but I haven't had any of the hardware break on me like other buyers have reported. I wouldn't be surprised when this happens though as it's obviously not nice metal.
The interior satin-type lining gave way after a few days use. It's rubbish.
The stitching on the bag, particularly the top handles is atrocious. It's falling apart under totally normal use and looked awful from day 1.
The velcro on the handle has almost completely torn off from regular use and will need to be repaired.
Don't waste your money on a Latico product. I was disappointed from day 1 and this is most certainly not a durable bag.
Unfortunately, the more I use this bag, the less I like it as it finds new ways of breaking and falling short of expectations. Definitely not what I'd like from a bag which cost so much. Latico = bad quality and poor design.
