Bolt Duffel Bag

Exactly what I needed

This duffel is exactly what I was looking for. A high quality, well-made, easy to bring duffel. Excellent quality as for all the product I bought from WaterField Design.

Roomy, yet compact

Took the small duffel bag for a 3 day trade show. I was able to fit all of the display items, cards, stickers, holders for all, etc. The thought put into design really came out when I found the duffel extremely easy to carry. The shoulder strap seemed to put it at just the right balance and the handles were not too short, but kept the bag off the ground and off my knees when I walked. Very nice!

The perfect duffel bag

This is the most beautiful duffel bag I have ever owned. It's spacious and study on top of how slick it looks. I've been using it all summer on three different vacations and I loved it! This bag is an amazing combination of form and function.


I've been using my new bags (messenger and duffel bags) for a few weeks now and I only have positive things to say about them. Their design is perfect; I haven't found a situation where they couldn't be useful and efficient and their solidity has been put to the test. They have a great look and are very confortable to wear. Every time I pack up for the day (or to travel) I find that every compartment has been rightly sized and well padded for its use while having great adaptability. Finally, I've loaded these bags pretty hardly and they stayed comfortable, great looking and without a kink!

What are splash-proof zippers?

Ballistic nylon and waxed canvas hold up well in rainy conditions. Splash proof zippers add additional water resistant protection for your gadgets.

Should I go with Ballistic Nylon or Waxed Canvas Bolt Duffel?

Both are extremely durable materials. Ballistic nylon is a bit more formal and will keep the same appearance years down the line. Waxed canvas takes on character with time, an "around the world" look. You can't go wrong with either option.

Why use full grain leather?

Full-grain leather has a super tight grain so it resists moisture very well, and it's strong and durable. We believe in making products of the highest quality—we never skimp on materials. Full-grain leather is ideal for handles; your fingers will feel the difference. Of course, leather lines the bottom to help the Bolt Duffel withstand various surfaces. The leather also develops a beautiful patina so it will add to the Duffel's character over time.

Why use a gold liner?

First, the liner adds a bit of protection for the different items you carry inside. Second, we chose gold because this lighter, brighter color makes it easier to quickly see the contents inside your pouch.
