Quality leather luggage is almost fetish material for us, and due to its durability and utility it's one of those rare places where we can justify making a major investment. But as temperatures rise, there's something to be said for lightening up our luggage just as we do with our outerwear. You still want to avoid the dreaded ballistic nylon, but you have options. A couple of favourites, left to right: Floto Venezia duffle in canvas [$269]. Filson plaid wool duffle [$250].
