A work bag for all seasons

It's on balmy, blue-skied summer days like this one that we're reminded just how unpredictable the British weather can be – which is why we're grateful for climate-proof accessories like the North South bag from Dunhill's Chassis collection.

Made from calf leather coated with a unique carbon-fibre weave, its lightweight nature and resistance to water, knocks and scratches makes it the ideal workaday bag, rain or shine.

Beneath the magnetically fastened flap you can expect to find two mobile phone pockets, a loop for your house-keys and a further, zippable compartment for your wallet, all lined in a soft grey microfibre. On the back, meanwhile, is a concealed sleeve to keep your travel tickets and office pass close to hand. (Conveniently, its dimensions are perfectly suited for transporting an iPad.)
