    Great bag - 3/25/2014

    Very versatile, a great weekend bag or carry-on. I didn't fully understand the reason for having a buckle-down flap in addition to a zipper until I overstuffed the bag and realized that leaving the bag unzipped, with the flap buckled, creates more room. One minor complaint: the leather sleeve that holds the handles together is a bit snug and can be cumbersome to close. Regardless, an extremely functional piece of luggage.

    Great gift - 3/13/2014

    Received as a gift to match my briefcase (also a great gift) that I received three years ago. Great quality and perfect for weekend trips.

    my 3rd review - 3/6/2014
    By: from Missouri

    I've written two previous reviews of this bag essentially complaining of questionable quality and service. I am writing again to update. A very nice customer service rep has since refunded my costs in this matter, so I must give service 4 stars. Would be 5 if I hadn't had to harangue someone for two months or longer. Don't know if I'd recommend bag to a friend.

    Not Bad - 3/1/2014
    By: from Stow, OH

    Probably one of the best duffles I have seen. Two drawbacks, it has three buckles which only serve to get in the way and it does not keep its shape when only a few items in it. However, lots of cool pockets which is great for traveling.

    What a duffle! - 2/21/2014

    My husband has had his Battenkill Duffle for many, many years. The quality and construction is outstanding, and the bag looks as good as it did day 1. Our son who wanted this same duffel for his business travels. He just received it and is thrilled. Another generation of Battenkill Duffel owners!

    update review of 10/15/13 - 1/6/2014
    By: from Missouri

    I had UPS pack & ship this to Orvis for repair. Cost me $20. I was without the bag for more than two months. The repair work is satisfactory, I think, but I didn't see anything wrong with the bag when it started coming apart at a seam. In today's mail I got a bill From Orvis for $30 for this repair (shipping/handling). I really can't see at all how this is a "100% satisfaction guarantee." The bag is nice. The overall experience with the warranty and service has been unsatisfactory.

    This is a high quality functional duffel. When you get this kind of quality you know why you paid a little extra.

    some surprises - 10/15/2013
    By: from Missouri

    Bought this for myself 11 months ago. Beautiful bag, seemingly well made. Looks like an heirloom item. Didn't use the bag much until a couple weeks ago, for week long hunting trip. The day I headed for home I noticed the leather strap on top of bag was pulling away from cloth at seam. Called Orvis. Found out I had to ship it at my expense for repair. They will only replace if not repairable. A little disappointing. Haven't gotten it back from repairs yet, so we will see. Also, I'm not crazy about the zipper opening's offset. While probably more waterproof, more difficult to load.
