A double skinned base, thick seams, two tough webbing handles, this is a pack for tents, poles, logs, rocks, or just clothing and gear for a longer trip. They can be stored on a roof rack in all weathers, or thrown in the back of the Land Rover, in a canoe or sailing boat, put your feet up on it at your camp, or sit on it as David Gandy does in the recent Man Of The World magazine photo shoot for which we supplied one of these duffle bags, a great choice by the photographer, it is shown below stuffed with coils of rope under a tarp.
After finding these often having been stored for years in attics or storage units, we repair any that are broken and bring them back to life again ready for action, adding natural rope cordage for the top closure when it’s missing. Many have owners names or Royal Marine Commando unit numbers written or stamped on them, usually on the base, which only adds to the character and authenticity of these great bags. There’s a nice review on The Obsessive – Wynnchester Duffle Bag review of these great old bits of kit.
We have also supplied these for an upcoming 2015 blockbuster movie set in the deserts of North Africa to be hauled around the desert by a certain very famous actor…We’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to say who. But these are just an awesome rare piece of old fashioned camp and exploration gear, nothing made now will ever come close to these!
