If a bag doubles as a statement of character, well, you could do a lot worse than the Ellington Wanderlust. Constructed of oiled nubuck leather, the weekend-size duffel is a classic travel piece, improving with every bump, scuff, and overhead bin it endures. Features are clever but subtle, like protective metal feet on the outside and well-placed pockets and sleeves on the inside. And now for the real kicker: It only costs $200.
