The Teddy Roosevelt Duffel is the leather duffel bag you've dreamed of.  Made from rugged yet handsome five to six ounce Horween Dublin full grain leather, the Roosevelt Duffel is a fresh take on a classic bag. The leather is purposely tanned by the Horween Leather Company in Chicago to have a distressed, antique appearance, and has a slight pull up effect as well.

The interior is lined with thick, twelve ounce, cotton khaki canvas and has a roomy pocket with an all brass YKK zipper for the items you want to keep separate.  The bag can be closed with the double sided, heavy duty, all brass YKK zipper, and can be carried with the thick, reinforced handles, or the adjustable all leather strap.  Solid brass hardware complement the bag and all stress points are reinforced with handsome button rivets.

The T. Roosevelt Duffel was selected as the best duffel bag by and for good reason. Made from beautiful, vegetable tanned leather that will patina and gain more character over time, and secured with all brass hardware, this bag will be your faithful companion for all of your exploring needs.

Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt was probably best known for being the youngest U.S. President in history, becoming the president at age 42.  Less well know, but perhaps equally as important was Roosevelt's exuberant, dynamic personality, his owning of a large cattle ranch in the "Badlands" of the Dakotas, his service as New York Police Commissioner and Governorship of the State of New York, and his building of the Panama Canal.  Roosevelt was a friend to the media, understanding that a good relationship with the media would result in expanded influence for his policies and reforms.  

This friendliness to the media is not surprising considering his love of reading and his own work as a writer, historian, and editor.  His connection to the media allowed him to maintain communication with his middle class constituents and made the White House the center of daily news.

Roosevelt's love of reading and the great outdoors led to his many and varied interests and passions.  Following his presidency in 1909, he went on a year long safari to Africa, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute.  Three years later found him in South America on another expedition to collect animals and specimens for the American Museum of Natural History.  

Teddy Roosevelt led a life of vitality, energy, passion and had a huge array of interests.  You could say his name should be synonymous with adventure and exploring.

Inside Coronado Leather

Established in 1981 by Carol and Danny Laulom, Coronado Leather began with just two skilled sewers, a cutter and a handful of leather bags.  Carol and Danny began expanding the business in the mid 1980's.  Their sensitivity to market demand and attention to high craftsmanship lead to a tradition of excellence and commitment to quality that has crossed two generations.  Today, Coronado Leather has become a leader and innovator in premium-made leather gear. As evidenced in their products, Coronado has a strong passion for leather and the old art of real craftsmanship. Each product is built to be better and stronger than most of what is available today. Part of Coronado's core competency is the belief that true value in any product lies in design, materials and craftsmanship rather than price, and that is where they out pace their competitors.

Coronado's passion for leather, design and attention to detail is the driving force behind what they do today. Their styles and designs are classic, functional and straight-forward. They do not over-embellish products with hardware to hide stitching, they keep the focus on using the best leathers, the best designs and the best craftsmanship.  This ensures timeless designs that customers will be proud to own.

More than thirty-years after its founding, Coronado is still located in San Diego, California. In 2011, Coronado opened its new San Diego factory and leather-shop where many of its products are made. Their USA made products really are the best-of-the-best. With both modern and vintage leather machinery and a lot of hand-crafting, they continue to build some of the finest leather products found anywhere in the world. The Coronado Leather brand name remains synonymous with quality, style and innovation, with a broad line of highest-quality, handcrafted leather goods.
