Gear Patrol answers the question 'Are these full-grain leather silhouettes worth the cost?'.
Here's what they had to say...
The HERITAGE Collection includes a 26L backpack and 46L duffel. Designed to last a lifetime, they're constructed entirely from full-grain American leather.
The craftsmanship is top notch across both bag profiles.
I definitely expected these Heritage Collection bags to be a step above my normal tote, but after unboxing each silhouette, I was still impressed by the attention to detail. Every zipper was metal for better durability. All the nylon straps were capped with a leather patch to help reduce fraying. The leather itself held its shape while still offering some flexibility. It just feels like King Kong spent its time crafting these luxurious profiles. Additionally, I enjoyed how sturdy each bag felt when traveling from home to gym. The duffel straps fit nicely in the hand and across the shoulder, while the backpack straps sat conveniently across my frame, even when the pack was loaded with gear. I didn’t feel off-balance when walking, and the straps did a fine job of disbursing the weight across my back.
