Sew Cute Travels: Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Review


I've been meaning to do this post for so long but, now seems like the perfect time because my go-to travel duffle from Dagne Dover is on sale! That's right this week all of Dagne Dover is 20% off. This is a great deal as these don't go on sale all that often. 

But, now for my review.... guys this bag is awesome! I've been searching for a great duffle bag for travel for some time. For the past few months I've been using this Landon Carryall and I am obsessed. It has everything I was looking for in a travel duffle. First off, it is light weight to begin with. The idea of a cool designer leather duffle sounds like a good idea. For petite gals like myself I just can't carry a heavy duffle plus all of my stuff! It's just too much. This duffle is lightweight to begin with so even when I have it stuffed to the brim it is still manageable. Another great feature is that it fits under the seat on an airplane. I have taken it on both Southwest and small (I mean small) Delta flights and it has fit fine on both airlines! This was huge for me because I now bring this duffle + my Away bigger carryon and it is the perfect system. You can get smaller sizes but I think the large is the best size. 

Here is what I normally fit into the bag: One or sometimes two 13inch laptops, DSLR camera, a pair of shoes (or two sometimes), 3-4 Stoney Clover Lane mini pouches, snacks, wallet, sunglasses, and other small essentials. 

I'm telling you now this bag holds everything! On each side it has a shoe compartment so you can easily store two pairs of shoes. Or you can slip a water bottle into one of these compartments. It has a little detachable bag for dirty clothes. I keep extra underwear in here in case I ever get stranded without my luggage. A laptop sleeve that can hold a 13inch laptop. When I want my work and personal computer I fit both of them in this compartment. I will say if you stuff it to the brim it may not fit under the seat. But, I've stuffed it pretty full and have still been able to shove it down there! 

When it comes to durability the bag has held up great, even it being a lighter color. It hasn't torn or shown any huge signs of wear. Might I add I use this bag on pretty much every trip I go on. So, it's probably been on 30+ flights/ trips this year alone. It really is a great bag. Dagne Dover bags are made of neoprene which I think scares some people. So far I haven't had any issues with it though!

Now the bags come with a sleeve which you can slide onto your suitcase handle. This is HUGE! Mine doesn't have that which I am sad about. But, if you end up with an older model I just loop the handles of the bag onto the suitcase handle and it does the trick. Now the duffles come with that feature and it is a game changer. I actually just ordered the backpack that has this feature so I am excited about trying it out. 

Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about this bag. I purchased this bag on sale a while back and I'm so glad I did. Could not recommend it enough for anyone looking for a great ravel bag or weekender bag. It holds so much, is stylish, and is durable. 

Hopefully if you were on the fence about purchasing a Dagne Dover duffle this has helped you in your decision making process! Or maybe it exposed you to a great new travel bag to try. This system I have found really works for me and hopefully it inspired you to try it out! 


Dagne Dover's sale runs through December 4th! Nordstrom is price matching as well so you can shop on either site to get the discount.
