  • Stainless steel snap clasp, true marine quality.
  • 1/4″ nylon 3 strand line finished with a barrel knot.

  • Double or triple sewn seams.


  • 20 inches high, by around 9 3/4 of an inch in diameter.
  • Weighs around one pound, three ounces.

The mini duffel bag built for the long haul, right here in Vermont.

 Why buy a Sailsmith bag instead of a “big brand” bag?

A Sailsmith Bag is produced by one person, me.  I fabricate your Mini Duffel Bag from start to finish, ensuring the highest quality available.  As I offer a 100 year warranty I am confident in the durability of every Sailsmith Bag that passes out the door into a customers hands.  There are no little “errors” glossed over by trim as may happen at a larger bag making facility with workers who are not as concerned about quality.   Your bag will only cost a little bit more and you will always know who made your Sailsmith Bag, me, A. Christos Contakos.
