It’s only natural we’d name our signature line of luggage for the river that has its source in East Dorset, not far from our Vermont flagship store and fly fishing school. Recalling the river’s dark olive green, the familiar canvas and leather construction of this luggage speaks volumes about the unsurpassed quality you’ve come to expect of products bearing the Orvis name. Time honored as that is, we continue to adapt and evolve, not unlike the river itself. You’ll find updated features in many of the pieces in our Battenkill line, including smarter interior design, sleeves for tablets and laptops, pockets with a purpose, and double-knotted leather zipper pulls.
Take us with you to work, to school, on the road, or around the globe. Find something here shaped and sized to suit your purpose. A briefcase can be traditional, or it can look like a backpack. Carry a small rolling bag onto a plane; press a magnum duffle into service on sabbatical. Or pack your prized shotgun into a Battenkill gun case and take us with you into the field. You’ll also find Battenkill luggage gets high marks for working and playing well with others. The slip pocket on our Businessman’s Backpack allows you to attach it to the retractable handle on your rolling luggage. Pair our Battenkill Travel Kit with one of our capacious duffle bags.
If you’re ready to take on some new luggage, look no further than the traditional styling and its recognizable plaid lining in our classic leather and canvas Battenkill Luggage. Orvis has made something good even better.

Thirty-eight years ago I gave Battenkill luggage to my son. He is still using it and it doesn't show it's age! This Battenkill duffle on wheels is my graduation gift to his son. It is durable, good-looking and guaranteed for a lifetime.

I purchased the Battenkill Duffle on Wheels back in 2000 at the Orvis store in Chicago. This bag has traveled hundreds-of-thousands of miles throughout NA and Europe both in plane and auto and I have to tell you it still looks new with just a few scrapes in battles with luggage crews at airports and doormen. I have no question my kids will be not only be taking this bag to college but inheriting it as well. Again great piece of luggage, well done Orvis!
I travel internationally a lot for business. I'm very picky about my luggage and want something that is easy to handle, durable, versatile and high quality. (I already own two Battenkill duffles.) I needed a very sturdy (but light weight) back pack that will securely contain and segregate a variety of valuables (laptop, camera, passport, cellphone, toiletries). This fit the bill. It's comfortable on my shoulders and easy to carry. Also functions pretty well as a briefcase at my desk.
It's not a problem at airport security, is easy to stow in overhead space and does not seem to be as vulnerable to pickpockets as other, lesser-quality backpacks. Plus, it looks good. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
