D'emploi Pilot Duffle

Separate your wet gear in the roomy, dual-compartment bag handmade in NYC

Though many contemporary soft goods companies offer handmade products, few take their process as far as Kyle Mosholder. The one-man-team designer and maker behind Brooklyn's d'emploi works from his home studio armed with just a single Depression-era Singer sewing machine. Mosholder makes small batches of bags and garments using domestically produced materials. The latest to hit the streets is the Pilot Duffle, a bag Mosholder has been working on perfecting over the past 12 months. The dual-compartment travel bag comes in especially handy when traveling between varying climates where wet and dry gear is best kept separate.

The upper compartment is lined with a choice of waterproofed sandstone or desert camo print. The bottom compartment on the adventure-ready bag stretches the entire footprint of the duffel and is easily large enough for two pairs of boots, a wetsuit and booties or even camping supplies. Plus, an all-leather shoulder strap makes schlepping easy.

For a closer look at the Pilot Duffle visit d'emploi online where it sells for $280.
