Physician's Weekender


Notify me when back in stock

There are many still living today who remember the all-hour visits of the local Physician toting his doctor’s bag as he made house calls around the county. Though the days of the travelling doctor have all but passed, my father who is a physician always bugged me about making one for use as a weekend bag.

After years of studying the old designs, I finally put my pages of notes and sketches to use and the result is the Kingfisher Physician's Weekender. Designed to be the successor of the classic doctor's bag, the Physician's Weekender keeps the same style and purpose but adds a longer lasting Kingfisher closure system, Full-grain equestrian leather construction, hammered seams, cleats, Brass hardware, Brass rivets and drop handles. Two full width end pockets for cords and small objects are handy in the large compartment which has enough space for a pair of shoes, two or three sets of clothes, toiletries and undergarments. Its meant for use on one to three day trips on its own or as a carry-on to supplement a checked bag for longer stays.

Our bags are made without a cloth lining that would catch stains and smells over time. Instead our baseplate and pockets are made from the same leather as the exterior for a truly all-leather product. Though it exudes aristocracy, it is rugged enough to be used daily for its original purpose as a Doctor's bag. My original design draws on historical style, and elements from banker's and doctor’s bags to create classic lines that are masculine in form but have enough poise to look equally striking when carried by a woman. Handcrafted by our Mater American craftsmen with full-grain vegetable tanned equestrian leathers, it is built to endure for generations.

Beautiful Piece of Luggage!

I saw this bag at SEWE (Southeastern Wildlife Exhibit) in Charleston 2 years ago at the Kingfisher "booth", and it stopped me in my tracks. The craftsmanship is impeccable, as is the quality of the leather. I bought it for my husband's birthday, but I have enjoyed using it just as much as he does. It truly is a work of art!!
