Bolt Duffle is a masterpiece...

RE: Bolt Duffle Small, one compartment, Outback Canvas w/ Chocolate Leather Waterfield Designs/SF Bags continues to set the standard…always the perfect blend of form and function…and the Bolt Duffle is no exception. It’s bomb-proof (outback canvas and leather), smartly…no, EXPERTLY...designed (brightly colored interior, “grippy" shoulder strap, hidden magnet pocket closures, highest quality zipper), and baffles the mind…is it handsome or rugged? No. It’s something else entirely…it’s ME. It’s my absolute go-to bag for overnight trips to see clients and customers, the hunting camp, the gym, fishing trips, weekend getaways, etc. Endless versatility and sacrifices nothing…a Masterpiece. I will always be your customer.

Great bag!

Love the quality of material! Really happy with this purchase. I bought the smaller size with the double zippers for my boyfriend. It has more than enough storage for those weekend trips.

Outback Duffle

Gary did it again! Excellent build quality and always has the right combination of pockets and compartments. A nice compliment to the Staad backpack. I’m still a happy camper with my Waterfield Bags. Thanks Gary and keep up the good work.

WaterField's Bolt Duffel Bag Delivers Style and Function

Newsweek - August 9, 2021

“As corny as it sounds, the Bolt Duffel Bag is more than a pretty face––it gets the job done.”

WaterField Designs takes the wraps off their new Outback Duffel bags

The Gadgeteer - May 14, 2014

"I always get excited when an email comes into my inbox that has a title that starts with "WaterField Designs announces..." because I know I'm going to see a great looking new leather bag that I'll want to try out." ... "I love the blocky rustic style."

The Waterfield Outback Duffel Bag is ready to go

Gear Diary - May 13, 2014

"Thoughtful about every aspect of their bag designs, the company made sure the large duffel will still fit in airline overhead bins." ... "Like everything we've seen from Waterfield, we expect the Outback Duffel Bag will not only look great in person but will also be beautifully built and last a long, long time. "


The Bolt Duffel Bag is available in two sizes:

  1. Small (Daily):
      Great for everyday use, a short trip, and perfect carry-on size for airline travel.

  2. Large (Weekender):
      Sized to maximize most airline carry-on restrictions.


Now you can keep clean clothes apart from your soiled ones. Or, keep your apparel away from accessories. 

"You should get the dual-zipper version. It's the best part! Each side can take over ~75% of the internal volume with the extra fabric in the divider. It's a clever, effective bit of organization that doesn't really detract from the main use for a duffel. You can overstuff the "back" pocket with bulky compressible items like clothes and still have useful volume for a dopp kit, shoes, electronics, etc. Less digging and less re-packing mitigates the more annoying parts about duffels." - Matthew C., San Francisco



Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag.
