Hard Graft Duffle Backpack

There is something about the wares from Hard Graft that always turns our heads here at Coolector HQ but it is their carries in particular that we’ve got a penchant for. The latest to emerge from their workshop is the excellent looking Hard Graft Duffle Backpack, which is available in both a Dark and Light colour way. Robust, stylish and with storage aplenty, the Duffle Backpack is a real triple threat and will become your go-to carry for all your daily adventures.

The Hard Graft Duffle Backpack is available at the punchy price of €900 but it is, as with all the products from Hard Graft, of heritage quality and of a standard that you’ll be inclined to pass from one generation to the next. The superb looking accessory is made in small batch runs to focus on the quality over quantity so if you like what you see, you’ll need to move quickly to make sure you secure one now and don’t have to wait around until the next batch is made.

Luxurious Materials and Craftsmanship

Designed to be a casual carry that packs a punch, the Hard Graft Duffle Backpack has been carefully considered to ensure that it always has enough space for all your day to day essentials. This bag isn’t designed for the tech inclined, however, and is purely designed with those with a spirit for adventure who love heading into the wild, on road trips or days at the beach. It won’t fit your laptop in but it has more than enough room for all the tools of adventure you can handle.

The Hard Graft Duffle Backpack (€900) has a separate compartment in the bottom of the bag to help make sure things stay organised and in their place. Dirty gym clothes will go in the bottom, clean things on the top. Damp swimwear bottom, towel on top… you get the idea. It really is as simple as that and that’s all you need when all you care about is adventure and enjoying the day to day things that life throws at you.

Keeping your everyday carry items close at hand is important for most people on the go and the Hard Graft Duffle Backpack allows you to do exactly that. It has two exterior zip up side pockets that ensures quick and easy access to things like your phone, wallet and keys. Each one of these duffles is made from Italian Nubuck leather which is incredibly soft to the touch but remarkably robust to boot so they will be right by your side for years to come.

Built To Be Different

With this casual bag being made of Italian velvet-like softly sanded nubuck leather and measuring 26 x 26 x 57 cm (10″x 10″x 22.5″), it is both luxurious and sizeable enough for any road trip or weekend adventure. It boasts a separate zip compartment in the bottom with 15 cm height, two outside zip pockets and one adjustable shoulder strap and the bag is fully lined in melange grey wool which adds a touch of luxury to the interior.

With the €900 price tag being a little bit on the lofty side for a duffle bag, there may well be a limited market for this carry from Hard Graft but there is no denying the quality on offer here and the luxury nature of the finish really is impressive. If you want to push the boat out a little with your next accessory purchase, this would certainly fall into that bracket and won’t let you down from an aesthetic or performance perspective.
