Shipping calculated at checkout.

Handmade in Canada. Made with a beautiful vegan leather crafted from cactus, this bag is as sleek as it is practical. Perfect for when you want to maximize both packing space and style. 

While it can be used for just about anything, the SHOALTS is most commonly used as a weekender bag. It has plenty of room to pack a few sets of clothes, pyjamas, toiletries and other essentials, and features a handy removable inner pouch for any smaller items you need easy access to.

The SHOALTS can be carried in three ways:
1. By the short handles, as with a traditional duffle-bag
2. Over-the-shoulder/ cross-body with the longer strap
3. As a backpack, with the easily-convertible backpack straps.

The backpack straps are a game-changer for those times when your hands are full trying to bring things in from the car, or if you’ve packed one-too-many things and ended up with a heavy bag!
