Priced at $245, the Signature 2.0 Weekender Bag is a premium duffel bag made from high-quality materials that are meant to stand up to wear for years to come. The bag is made from a premium synthetic leather material that's durable, weather resistant, and simple to clean, and inside, there's an antimicrobial lining.

Strange to have the UK be 18 over but Canada go by each regions age of majority. 16 year olds are adults in Scotland, they can buy their own house, have bairns, and play the lottery, but can't enter a prize draw?
