When it comes to quality bags with an authentic feel, it doesn’t get much better than Temple. Their bags are handcrafted in Los Angeles, California using mostly re-purposed WWII-era military materials from local warehouses.
For one, we’re really digging their U-Zip Duffel. The bag is made from WWII camp packs that were hand selected, then washed, cut, and stitched into their new form. Rarely can “recycled” and “badass” describe the same product, but that might be the case here. The bag has a natural canvas lining, a removable leather shoulder strap, a document sleeve, and pockets for notepads and pens. The bag sells for $645 and is the perfect size for any 1-2 week trip.
