    Choosing Your Leather Friend

    When choosing the perfect work bag, there are several factors to consider. Firstly, consider your specific needs and lifestyle. Are you a frequent traveller who needs a bag that can withstand the demands of constant use? Or are you a student who needs a lightweight and versatile bag for campus life? Additionally, consider the size and capacity of the bag, ensuring it can comfortably accommodate all your essentials without being too bulky or cumbersome. Also, pay attention to the materials and construction of the bag, opting for high-quality materials that are both durable and stylish. Finally, if you need premium work bags with durable leather construction, the Republic of Florence is your dependable partner! 

    Forget the one-size-fits-all approach to luggage. When it comes to duffle bags, size matters. But how do you know what size is right for you? The answer depends on your specific needs, durability, materials used, interior space, mode of carry, and of course budget. Yeah, it’s a lot to consider! But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

    Consider Your Voyage

    Envision your travels. Are you a weekend warrior or a long-term traveller? Do you need a bag for business or pleasure? Are you going on a whirlwind city break or a secluded nature retreat? Each expedition will require a different duffle size. Weekend getaways might call for a compact companion, while extended journeys might necessitate a spacious workhorse.

    Consider the Materials 

    It’s important to consider the durability of your duffle. If you’re planning to use your bag frequently, you’ll want something that can withstand the wear and tear, as well as all the rigours of travelling. Lucky for you, our bags have been constructed with sturdy and high-quality materials that can withstand rough handling.

    Think In Layers

    Interior organisation is also important. Do you need a bag with multiple compartments and pockets like the Magellan, or do you prefer a simple, open design? Think about how you plan to use your bag and what features are essential to you.

    Carry Comfort Matters

    When it comes to carrying your duffle, comfort is key. You'll want a bag that's easy to transport, whether you're strolling through the airport or hiking through the wilderness. Think about how you plan to carry your duffle - by hand, on your shoulder, or as a backpack? Do you need a bag with multiple carry options or a single, sturdy handle?

    For extended walks or commutes, prioritise a lighter duffle with a comfortable shoulder strap. If you're planning a more rugged adventure, consider a duffel with backpack straps for ultimate comfort and support. Whatever your mode of carry, we've got a duffle that's designed to keep up with your adventures.

    Zippers and Hardwares

    These elements are crucial when determining the size of your duffle. You don’t want your zippers to rip open under the pressure of heavy load, or get worn out while trying to zip or unzip it. Ultimately, you don’t want your bag to fail you when you need it most. We use the durable and dependable YKK zippers that can withstand these elements. 

    Don’t Forget the Airlines

    When flying, size really does matter. Make sure your duffle meets airline regulations to avoid any pesky fees or travel headaches. Research the specific dimensions and weight limits for your airline and choose a duffle that fits the bill. With our cabin-sized duffle bags, you’ll breeze through security and board with ease. Don't let size issues ground your adventure - choose a duffle that's airline-approved and ready for takeoff. Choose the Republic of Florence.

    The Sette dopp kit, for example, features a convenient loop for easy carrying or hanging on hooks, while the Hanging dopp kit offers handy carrying options and the ability to hang easily, ensuring your essentials are always within reach. The Tre dopp kit, with its side clips for easy hanging and carrying, provides added functionality for travellers on the move.

    Remember Your Style

Whether you prefer sleek and minimalist or bold and vibrant, there's a dopp kit to suit every taste and preference.
