Bolt Duffel

Amazing bag, lots of complimetns at the gym here in New Zealand. Great option for shipping to NZ as well. Awesome product and quality.

JJ K. (Ontario, Canada)
Long decision and multiple candidates, but Bolt is the final winner

I have been one bag travel person with my backpack, but I wanted something more stylish and wanted two bag travel method with a sling bag.

I had a very specific requirement in terms of finding the perfect duffle bag.

Size (biggest purchasing factor):
As I don't carry many clothes with me as I always book places with washers, I wanted a compact duffle. Most duffle bags are 20 to 22 inches long, which cuts very close to carryon luggage size. As such bolt was one of very few duffle bags that is smaller than 18 inches.

Material, design, and origin of Manufacturer:
I wanted a a bag that is made in the USA and canvas material for longevity. The canvas color with chocolate leather combination looked sublime and luxurious.
Unlike other duffle bags, Bolt has longer straps, which allow me to carry the bag on my shoulder as it is the preferred method as I can easily take it off and carry it again without dealing with a strap.

Convenience of shopping:
I am in Canada, so I don't like being surprised by duties and customs. Fortunately, Waterfield is nice enough to charge the customs and duties fee during the checkout.


I can't wait to use the bag to go to honeymoon and cottage trips soon with the Bolt duffle bag!

Great all-rounder

The long search is over. I was looking for both utilitarian and stylish duffel bag which has a divider to house a tech folio and notes and gym clothes and shoes. Now I use it as my weekday office bag. The bag feels high quality and I feel great carrying it around. I just wish the strap is a couple of inches longer, because when it's fully loaded it's difficult or tight carrying it on my shoulder.

Edward U. (Florida, United States)
Great bag. Versatile with plenty of room. Build quality and feel are first class.

I used the bag as my daily gym bag. I also have one of your backpacks that my go to for daily use with room for my Apple laptop and essentials.

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.
