Kennedy Duffel - Olive
Designed and produced in the USA, the Kennedy Duffel is equally functional for daily use as a work or gym bag as it is for short travel. The roomy main compartment is made from heavyweight water-repellent canvas, which is extremely durable, and gets better with use. The reinforced waxed canvas bottom provides an extra layer of protection from wet surfaces. The nylon lining protects the bags exterior from any spills or stains on the inside, and the leather accents lend a premium feel and understated sophistication.
Originally developed as a military bag during World War I and II, duffel bags eventually became associated with counter culture as soldiers turned on, tuned in, and dropped out, taking their military issued gear with them. The silhouette was later adopted for use in athletics based on the bags' durability and functionality.

My wife bought me one of these duffels in blue for my birthday and I liked it so much that I bought a second in the Nantucket red. The bag is perfect for a trip to the gym or an overnight work trip. It is really well made and has already held up well to travel wear and tear. I am officially making this my go to gift for birthdays and other celebrations. Job well done by J+M!
I love Nantucket red color... I started with the Kennedy in Nantucket Red and everyone loved it so it became my go to gift. I discovered the Everyday tote in Nantucket and that became my next go to gift.... then I discovered the Camo tote and I use that for EVERYTHING. J+M quickly identified me as a repeat customer and the personal note of thanks was very genuine. They also did gymnastics to ship some gifts out for me that i was very late in ordering. Real old fashioned personal service and the products are fantastic.
Very happy with the purchase of the Kennedy duffel. I purchased the Navy color and it looks great. Fabric is a nice soft cotton twill which is reinforced with canvas on bottom. Handles are sturdy with a leather grip, zipper is sturdy as well and made to last. Interior lined and has inside pocket. They covered all the details with this bag. the smaller size is perfect for gym, beach or overnight bag.
I ordered a weekender and an everyday tote from J + M during the Chrismas season, unfortunately the tote I wanted in black was sold out and wasn't reflected on the website quickly enough. Next thing you know, the team personally reached out immediately and managed my expetations, on top of that when the package arrived, they gave me a surprise gift that's worth almost as much as the bag I bought, with a lovely personal, hand-written note.
I've been using J+M for years and it's a brand I always trust because they care.
Go with them and enjoy the endless compliments from your friends on your style!
I’ve really enjoyed the bag, which I bring to work and the gym every day. The only complaint is there has been some minor wear to the cloth, but after a year of use that’s not surprising.
