Luxury Check In

Carl Friedrik Palissy Weekend Bag Review

A good men’s weekender bag is imminently versatile. It can be repurposed for a gym bag, to carry the necessities to and from the office, or as a personal item on a longer trip. For weekend trips, it keeps you much more nimble than a rolling suitcase, and fits snugly under an airplane seat so you never have to gate check it.

Elegantly handcrafted from supple Italian Vachetta leather, Carl Friedrik’s Palissy Weekend bag is the preeminent bag for men with impeccable taste. The Carl Friedrink logo is discreet and the Palissy’s distinctive curved profile not only lends it a classic style, but helps optimize the carrying space.

The bag feature’s Carl Friedrik’s luxurious attention to detail—every tooth in the zipper has been individually brushed and polished by hand before being added to the weekender.
