The vintage-style trunk features English bridle leather, a green felt-lined interior, and convenient top and side handles for easy in and out overhead access. It even comes with a wax and cloth kit so you can keep the vegetable-tanned leather looking spiffy.

You have a variety of color options, so you’re not stuck with bland black or blue. The four wheels also enable you to maneuver the bag in any direction. You’re actually getting a lot for a little bit of coin.
