If you're looking for a leather travel bag with high durability, then consider purchasing one of these high quality leather types:
2. Top grain leather: This is the finest type and considered to be of second-highest quality, taken from the top of the leather (which is the hair side). It has been sanded and coated on the surface, which makes the texture feel slightly plastic-like. It is smooth on one side and feels fuzzy on the other side. The finish is interesting. And it's less expensive than full-grain.
3. Suede: Made of calfskin; it has been buffed and napped to create a fuzzy finish.
4. Patent: This one is perfect for looking a bit dressed up and adding a bit of glam. This type of leather has been through a process using lacquer coating to achieve a glossy surface. Completely waterproof.
What size and shape to select?
