Coach's New Duffel Instantly Elevates Man's Favorite Bag

It will carry basically anything—stylishly.

Duffel bags aren't designed to carry your work documents, your sweaty Nikes, or your weekend wardrobe. No, they're designed to carry literally all of it. Such is the beauty of man's most versatile bag: Just throw your stuff in it, heave it over your shoulder, and jam it into your trunk. But as simple as it is, there's one thing that separates your run-of-the-mill duffel from a truly great duffel: style.

Take the new Explorer Bag from Coach. In addition to sturdy handles, an optional shoulder strap, and upwards of 1,700 square inches of pure space for holding your many wares, it's got several handy pockets for keeping some things well within reach, including one designed for your cell-phone.

But it's also as handsome as it is functional, and made of rugged, streamlined pebble leather—a type of leather that hides the inevitable blemishes or scuffs from frequent travel—and will actually grow smoother, more worn-in, and more stylish over time. It's an effect the folks at Coach have perfected over the years. (After all, in the company's early days, the designers realized that the leather in baseball gloves grows softer with use—and from that observation sprang literally decades of wonderful leather goods.)

So expect this bag to age wonderfully—and keep you company on all your many adventures.
