Buckle and Seam Linwood Weekender Bag Review

Posted on

Father’s Day is on its way but what do you buy the man who loves to travel?
Hubby goes away on business trips quite regularly and I always despair as he carries his clothes in an ancient blue holdall he has had had since before Kian was born (that makes it over 18 years old).
I have been nagging him to look a bit more professional for some time and the opportunity for me to update his luggage options came along when Buckle and Seam offered us a leather weekender bag to review.
Buckle and Seam use a carefully selected 1.5 to 2mm thick premium cow leather called Crazy Horse Full Grain Leather and the preparation and finish aim to preserve the natural and raw look of the leather. As the leather naturally ages, their products continue to develop a unique patina meaning that every piece will become truly unique, shaped by your life and travels.
Buckle and Seam
This Leather Weekender Linwood meets all carry on requirements by common Airlines and can be adjusted in size to accommodate your travel needs (and it smells amazing).

The bag is roomy enough to easily everything you need for a weekend away and the sides are adjustable so you can make it smaller, depending on your travel requirements and its handles are longer allowing it to be carried on your shoulder, keeping your hands free. It also has a handy front pocket, ideal for storing your passport and wallet.

In fact, we travelled to the Isle of Wight for a long weekend break and easily fit everything both of us needed inside the one bag.
Buckle and Seam are an ethical company and by buying from them, you are also helping to raise money to help fund a girl’s education program in Pakistan, where their products are made.

Buckle and Seam also produce premium leather laptop sleeves, wallets, passport holders etc, so something to suit every budget.

    Now that is a good looking bag and it seems like it would hold everything you need for a weekend away. I love the ethics behind the brand as well and helping girls with their education.

    Great to hear that the bag has plenty of room for a weekend away and that Buckle and Seam offer other products. Do they have vegan friendly products as well?

    Oh that’s a really smart weekend bag. My hubby has not long invested in a good carry-on bag as he travels for work alot. If he didn’t have his current bag I’d be considering one of these for Father’s Day!
