designer-duffel-bag-soloo1

Best thing about duffel bags is that they let you pack as much as you can carry, and then some.

In terms of style most of these bags take on the tough rugged look and I have yet to see one that is soft to the touch and luxurious looking. Until I stumbled upon the Soloo Collection by Mueslii.

With military-inspired materials and San Francisco Bay Area design, the Sanction rucksack is a heavy duty backpack that doesn’t lose the good looks for its utility. Continue reading
