Carryall bags are great. They fit a good load of stuff, they only take up one hand, and they’re the perfect to bring as a carry-on during travel. Heck, some of them can even double as a suit carrier, allowing you to bring some formalwear without creasing them at any point during the trip. The Bennet Winch S.C Holdall does all that while bringing some really refined aesthetics.
Billed as a sharp-looking holdall and suit carrier, the bag combines the utility of good old gym bags with elegant looks that can hold its own against the finest briefcases. Seriously, this is the kind of bag you’ll probably want to bring to work if you’re going to the gym straight out of the office. That is… if you still go to an office. Or if your office still hasn’t closed after months of lockdown. Or something.
The Bennet Winch S.C Holdall consists of two parts: a traditional-looking carryall and a suit carrier that wraps around it, allowing you to bring a suit jacket, dress shirt, and trousers without having to fold them at any section, so you can dress sharp with fresh clothes as soon as you get to your destination. The carryall is a cylinder-shaped bag similar to traditional gym bags, with a zippered end-to-end closure, carry handles, and metal loops on each end for attaching a shoulder strap. It has a volume capacity of 32 liters, with enough room inside for a weekend’s stash of clothes and gear, so you can use this for both trips and gym workouts alike.
The suit carrier has a flap with snap buttons and a full-body zipper, with a design that lets you carry it on its own or hang it on a hook for those days you just need to carry a suit. For use with the carryall, simply wrap it around the bag’s round body and attach it to the magnetic clip points to secure its placement. When wrapped, you carry the ensemble using the suit carrier’s hand straps.
The Bennet Winch S.C Holdall is sized to fit on the overhead compartments of all standard airlines even with both the bag and the suit carrier packed to the brim, making it ideal for carrying during short trips and weekend getaways. The bag, by the way, is cut in lightweight British-dyed 18oz canvas twill, so this should hold up to the grind of regular travel, with the suit carrier exterior cut in 24oz waterproof cotton canvas, ensuring your suit stays crease-free and dry even through a long trip.
There’s an external pocket sized to hold small items like passports, keys, and wallets, as well as a removable shoe bag and slimline coat-hanger, so it covers everything you’re likely to be packing. Other features include solid brass hardware that’s been welded to the bags, premium vegetable-tanned Italian leather details, YKK golden brass zippers, and a detachable shoulder strap cut in military-grade webbing.
