2. Leather Sports Bag 20″ by OldFisherBags
If you want to carry your sports gear in the utmost style, look no further than this one-of-a-kind, original masterpiece. The bag is hand crafted out of goat leather and has a sturdy canvas lining. The most important thing about its leather exterior is that it’ll only get better with age.

Clearly, you shouldn’t shy away from using this bag on more occasions than just going to the gym and back. Its size and versatility make it ideal for weekend trips, picnics or traveling by plane.
