Daring Duffels. Once relegated to the locker room, the duffel bag has emerged in versions that serve as tasteful travel carry-ons or computer bags. In deference to their freshly elevated status, the newest fall bags feature tissue-soft leathers, exotic crocodile, ostrich, and alligator skins, and even fine suitmaking materials, such as lightweight wool flannel and cashmere. Many of these versatile bags are equipped with useful compartments for mobile phones, passports, and other essentials.
