Less is more. This is exactly what we were going with while developing the Ezeiza Weekender Bag. With no frame, no wheels, and added flaps for flexibility, this travel bag is still durable as ever, minus the bulk-- which makes it the perfect carry-on bag. We kept with the full-grain leather, waxed canvas, and brass hardware, throw a shoulder strap on there, even better. Good to go. And as always, made in USA!
