The AWOL Bag from Duluth Trading Company is nearly identical to the handsome leather one Dad carried when the army shipped him overseas in 1943 – ready for sudden deployments and weekend liberties.

    Comments about Overnight Bag - AWOL Bag:

    I bought this bag over 8 years ago, it is built like a tank, I can not comment on todays product. It has been strapped to the back of 3 motorcycles, wore out the bike before I wore ot the bag. 80,000 miles wind, rain, cold, hot, don't need much, good for a week, best bag ever, it is a little beat up, scuffed, scrached, road wounds, just added character. I get WOW! comments all the time, I Love it!

    Comments about Overnight Bag - AWOL Bag:

    I purchased this bag in person at the Bloomington, MN location six months ago. Overall it is holding up pretty good. My lifestyle: I am a businessman and use this for a travel bag and also for an athletic bag.

    I use this bag A LOT and really beat on it. It is taken out of the house every day.

    Score:

    Hardware - 10 out of 10. The buckle, zipper, and hems are holding up very well. Even when I overpack it everything stays together

    Stitching - 6 out of 10. I've attached a strap to each buckle. I regularly have 20lbs of gear in there with the buckles taught with all the weight, the stitching is not holding up well. After six months some of the stitches are starting to come out. I understand the bag was not made for an unrelated strap, however the stitching should be more durable than what it currently is.

    Leather - 8 out of 10. There small tears in the bottom of the bag from when I've set it down and had it in the trunk of my car with other items floating around. I wish it was a little more durable. The quality of the leather is OK and is a good deal for the price.

    Accessories - 5 out of 10. Please include a shoulder strap with this bag!!! I went out and bought a shoulder strap, it really competes the item. Especially when I'm ground through airports, in and out of the gym.

    I am overall happy with this bag, especially with the price.

      Clearly a no nonsense weekend bag that catches your eye. Most overnight bags are either poorly made and get ruined quickly OR are too expensive and appears too pretentious.

          I came up in the days where quality was idea and the stamp of approval was how an item stood up over a period of time. I feel I am back there and this is the real McCoy.

          The handles are rigid and hurt your hands. Probably wouldn't be an issue if there was a shoulder strap (there isn't).

          Comments about Overnight Bag - AWOL Bag:

          The look and feel of this bag is perfect if you like vintage products. I'm sure it will be the last short trip bag I ever purchase.

          The only gripe (and it's not a big deal) is the handles. They are not round, and are a little uncomfortable when the bag is full. They are sharp in the palm of your hand. It seems like the design would be a very easy fix.

          Overall, I am impressed.

          Comments about Overnight Bag - AWOL Bag:

          Bag arrived with several noticeable scuff marks on the leather. It seemed that with constant use the marks would become ugly over time and not a beautiful patina. Did not hold enough clothing for me. All my clothes are XXL,

          The leather also had a cheap feeling to it. I thought it would be thicker for a bag. It did not give me a feeling of confidence carrying it.

          It is a nice bag and would be good for short overnight trips. I decided to get another bag instead. I would recommend the Duluth Duffle Bag instead for overnight and weekend trips. It has a shoulder strap, much cheaper and will carry more.

              Comments about Overnight Bag - AWOL Bag:

              The bag is all I need for a weekend or week long trip. It is bigger than I expected, and so stylish. It was in a cotton bag as well that I am going to use for my dirty clothes when I am not storing the AWOL bag in it. I shopped a lot before making the decision and could not be happier with my selection. I wish the handles met just a little more flush, and that is the only negative I can find with the bag.
