Go Forth Goods – Gunnar Duffle, Nuts and Bolts

GO FORTH GOODS – Gunnar Leather Duffle Bag

…be faithful down to the last stitch, give back, and make a difference.

I’m loving this bag!  By far, this is the biggest leather bag I’ve reviewed and my first true travel bag.  We went camping a few weeks ago and I cannot believe the capacity of this bag.  For a 3 day, 2 night stay, we fit clothes in there for hubby, kiddo and myself.   My husband absolutely adores this bag as it fits well with his tall frame (6’3”) and he’s a huge fan of backpack mode.  I wanted to do this Nuts and Bolts video first so you can appreciate the size and features of this bag.

Stay tuned for my full review as I take it with me on a family road trip up the coast in the next few weeks!  I’ll show you exactly what fits in this bag and how to pack it smart.

If you don’t know Go Forth Goods, get to know them.  They’re not just a bag company, they’re American crafters, good to the last stitch so you know it’s guaranteed for life. If that doesn’t move you, how about this?  They’re giving back 10% to support nonprofits.  Yup, I applaud their commitment to the community and their commitment to American made.

GO FORTH GOODS – Gunnar Leather Duffle Bag

“…be faithful down to the last stitch, to give back, and make a difference.”

I’m inspired by the Go Forth Goods – to inspire others to do good. I’m glad to shine a light on their positivity, their American made commitment and their choice to give back to the community.  10% of all their profits go to support their chosen charity. They’re a small team of five in Georgia, getting it done, handmade and guaranteed for life.

As you know, I’ve searched long and hard for the right military style duffle bag to review. This one caught my eye for a few reasons and I can’t wait to test drive it. Road trip, anyone?

On the mechanics of this bag…everything metal is solid brass, there’s a double handle top carry, a zipper option and a backpack option.   There’s just a pride of craftsmanship that shines through on this bag. This is the first bag Nathan created.  After seeing it first hand, I understand why Go Forth Goods took flight.  Watch Nathan talk about his baby here.

Love 41 Backpack Battle

Check for it here (You’re gonna love it!):  City Backpack vs. Wanderer’s Backpack

City Backpack vs. Wanderer’s Backpack!

 

So excited to see all the new designs on Love 41!  I love that they’ve released some traditional backpacks instead of convertible backpacks.  The bags are so different, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. Hopefully, this video helps you decide.  Here’s a quick rundown in the backpack battle:

City Backpack – This bag packs a lot into bag.  I was surprised at just how much I can fit in there. The leather on this is the smoother, slick leather.  It reminds of the leather on their Umuragi collection. It’s a stiffer, structured bag that’s going to require some breaking in to reach it’s full potential. It has one main zippered compartment, one front zippered pocket and two open front pockets with a nipple closure.  The zipper runs over the top and down the sides (old school, Jansport style – remember those?).  This is perfect for a replacement as your work purse or an evening out after work.  It’s compact so won’t look out of place in a casual work environment, art gallery, museum, etc. the way a standard backpack might.   It would also make an uber chic diaper bag, especially because it has easy access (one zipper) to get to the main compartment and three other compartments for staying organized!  You can also open the bag while standing up on the go!

Wanderer’s Backpack – If the mini version is the City, then this roomy cousin is the Country.  This backpack fits a TON of stuff.  The leather on this is the floppy sort (reminds me of the way people describe the Love 41 Simple Tote). You can see the richness of the grain, the marbling and feel the texture of this bag.  On just the first wear, you’re going to feel the way it molds to fit your back.  This bag is big and has a nice weight to it, but they’ve thoughtfully added padding inside the leather straps so it feels SUPER comfortable on. Getting in and out of this bag requires a bit more doing than the City – there’s a strap, flap and then the zipper.  Realistically, you need to set this bag down to get to the interior.  The benefit to this is this bag is SECURE.  Plus, its got those two side pockets with both zippers and flaps that make for easier access on the go.  Your phone, keys and can’t-live-without cosmetics can live in those side pockets!  I’m thinking the Love 41 Essential Oils pouch would keep those cosmetics organized in the side pocket so no fishing around.  This backpack likes to make its presence felt…probably not the best thing for the office, but perfect for a day out exploring, hiking and traveling!  Or if you’re mom on the go and carry more stuff than you ever thought possible, then you’ve met your match!

What backpacks do you like?  Let me know if you’ve found some great backpacks for work or for wandering….thanks for stopping by!
