Crafted from materials that were given to a Swiss soldier over 40 years ago, the Genuine Swiss Army Blanket Duffel is an authentic piece of history.

Each of these bags is made from a Swiss Army-issued pure wool blanket and hand-woven in a tiny mountain village nestled within the Glarus Alps of Switzerland. Inside, the duffel is lined with waterproof tarpaulin that was recycled from old trucks and fashioned into a series of pouches that can hold paper, notebooks and a pair of shoes. There are also several smaller wool pouches that are perfect for storing a smartphone, camera, pens and passport.

When it comes to quality and construction, the Genuine Swiss Army Blanket Duffel gets top marks. Even with the $300 price tag, military enthusiasts and fans of fine design will be lining up to get their hands on one.
