Lotuff Leather has been turning heads since their push to independence in 2012. Though once part of the leatherworking powerhouse Lotuff Clegg, Lotuff Leather has continued to evolve as a premium bag maker and leatherworker, designing and manufacturing some of the world’s most eyecatching products. Beyond the dogged use of American leathers and commitment to U.S.-based manufacturing is Lotuff Leather’s deep reverence for the handcraft of leatherworking. In fact, it is this persistent search for exquisite handiwork that underpins Lotuff’s collection today.
From the ever-popular No. 12 Weekender, which is one of Lotuff’s more popular silhouettes, to the ultra-refined Triumph Briefcase, Lotuff’s collection is rife with leather goods built to last a lifetime. That’s why we’re so excited to welcome Lotuff Leather into the Gear Patrol Store. And to celebrate their addition, we’ve worked with the Lotuff team to offer free monogramming on all Lotuff products purchased through the Gear Patrol Store. What’s more, we’re offering a $100 Gear Patrol gift card for every bag purchased.
The No. 12 Weekender
Proportional, sleek, and remarkably light, the No. 12 Weekender Bag is a compact piece that’ll get you through the weekend, no matter your destination or mode of transportation. Sized to fit perfectly on top of a roller suitcase, the Weekender can act as your carry-on piece or your sole travel bag. An exterior extended wrap-around zipper on both sides gives the bag a handsome symmetry while also allowing for easy interior access. And the comfortable nesting handles are both riveted and stitched onto the bag to promise durability and integrity.
A lock-and-key closure promises that only you or your trusted companions can get inside. And an interior drop pocket is just large enough to fit your travel tickets, keys, and phone.
The Triumph Briefcase
Sleek, modern, and instinctively functional, the Triumph is a fully leather-lined, triple-gusset briefcase. This triple-gusset design creates a unique accordion construction, allowing the bag to expand and contract between 2 inches and 8 inches. This rare expandability provides unparalleled functionality, making the bag perfect whether you’re a traveling minimalist or a heavy packer. With an extended zipper, access to the interior is wide and easy.
On the inside, you’ll find three separate full-length compartments. The center compartment has two full-length zipper pockets for a laptop, tablet, or periodical and smaller pockets for a mobile, keys, or travel miscellany. A cross-body strap attaches and detaches to each side of the bag.
Because the bag is fully leather lined, it stands up independently whether completely empty or teeming with your possessions.
The Zip-Top Briefcase
An understated, handsome piece with full leather construction and an extended zipper for easy interior access, the Zip-Top Briefcase meets at the intersection of functionality and beauty. It’s wonderful for business professionals who have a lot to carry and want to do it in style, with two full-length exterior pockets and an interior that contains even more space for all you need. Pens, cards, and your phone all have their own designated compartments, and your 15” laptop will fit snugly in its own as well. There’s room left over for notebooks, a newspaper, and more, too: whatever the meeting or trip requires, this briefcase can handle it.
A 5″ handle and a removable, adjustable shoulder strap allow this briefcase to be carried both in-hand or over the shoulder depending on preference. The Zip-Top’s single-gusset design, double-stitched nesting handles, and other minimal-yet-stately accents give it a classic look, and thanks to our lifetime guarantee it’s one that will last for years no matter what.
The Zipper Backpack
Thoughtful details of practicality complement an elemental, classic design on our Leather Zipper Backpack. A transcendent piece, the Zipper Backpack is just as appropriate with a suit as it is with a sweater, jeans, and sneakers.
A wrap-around zipper gives access to the main compartment, but the secret weapon is the back zipper pocket. This pocket sits snugly against your back, allowing you to safely carry your most precious cargo, from your laptop to your keys to your manuscript of the next great American novel. A zipper interior pocket gives alternative access to this back pocket, and a front zipper pouch is perfect for carrying sunglasses and other miscellany. Adjustable back straps with a loop ensure a comfortable carry no matter your height.
