Double Duty Bags
Heading into the last stretch of summer always feels like a time of transition. Even if you're not prepping for back to school, there's the promise of change in the air. What better time to scout out a new bag—one that's stylish enough to work at the office and rugged enough to handle any off-duty adventures. Navali specializes in such double-duty bags, inspired by a ship's rigging. Since it's a direct-to-consumer brand, Navali can offer quality pieces at a much more affordable price by cutting out the layers of middlemen in traditional retail. And right now, their back to school sale is offering 30% off the entire line. Herewith, six adaptive and hardwearing carry-alls.
The Slim Work Bag
While trim in shape, the 14 oz. waxed canvas Gunner briefcase holds a surprising amount thanks to its multitude of organizational pockets both inside and out. Heavy-duty brass zippers can take a beating while ensuring everything stays stored.
The Relaxed Briefcase
Outfitted with a detachable strap (with padded leather shoulder rest) and reinforced leather handles, the Helmsman bag is a versatile option that can be carried many ways. Inside, zippered compartments, a computer sleeve and organizer pockets keep your essentials safely stowed.
The Classic Messenger
Constructed with 22 oz. washed cotton canvas, this handsome take on a traditional messenger bag is finished with leather trim and antique brass hardware. Magnetic snap buckle closures makes getting in and out of the bag quick and easy.
The Durable Duffel
The gentleman's carry-on of choice, a good weekender should be spacious, stylish and sturdy. This waxed canvas duffel, complete with three exterior pockets and secure interior zippered compartments certainly fits the bill. And thanks to its flexible shape, the bag itself will fit nearly anywhere.
The Leather Messenger
A sleek, more dressed up version of the brand’s classic messenger, this is crafted with a soft, smooth leather exterior. It's the kind of bag you can easily wear with a suit. Inside, a durable cotton canvas interior is engineered with plenty of well-placed pockets to stash keys, gear, notebooks and a range of electronics from your phone and camera to your laptop.
