I really like this duffel and find I'm using it for nearly any car trip or adventure I take. The material is super tough but lighter weight than other companies tough duffels. It has mesh pockets at each end of the bag which I find extremely helpful to keep a bag this big organized.
I have a few complaints. I wish it had some type of compression because a bag this big is a little unwieldy when not fully stuffed. I wish it had more traditional duffel grab handles for similar reasons as above and because the bag really sags when you use the carry handles that are only attached at the ends of the bag. Also, the backpack padding leaves something to be desired. I couldn't see myself carrying this bag fully loaded as a backpack comfortably.
I would recommend this product.

I use this bag all of the time. For extended travel, the shoulder straps are awesome. For local trips up to the mountain, I can consolidate my wife's twenty or so small bags that she always has to take into this one large bag - one trip to the car instead of ten. Ahhh.
This bag is big enough to fit two pairs of ski boots plus all of our ski gear, lunch, backpacks, etc.
I would recommend this product.

This thing rocks! It will handle monster loads with ease and take a beating in the process. I took one to 14,200' on Denali strapped to a sled and it was a champ! The daisy chains make lashing it down a breeze, the internal mesh pockets are great for organizing small items, internal compression straps are brilliant! This bag was abused - fell in a crevass, was buried in a cache, skied on and tossed around by myself and airline baggage handlers. I plan on getting a small bag to complement the large.
I would recommend this product.

These duffels are GREAT. I purchased 2 of them and have used them every weekend this winter to carry our families ski gear. The materials are all supper tought, strong handles, and oversized zippers that dont mind getting tested when I overpack. I really like the shoulder strap conversion for the handles when I have a long walk from the outer parking lots to the hotel or ski lodge. I am able to fit all the gear for a familiy of 4 in the 2 bags (2 pairs of boots, 2 Helmets, 2 ski jackets, 2 ski pants, gloves in each large duffel)

This is my new flight bag I love It . Keeps all my expensive flight instruments and gear safe and sound. I love the way It can be used as a back-back or truck bag very tough and durable.

Well-built bag. Only thing it could use is a sternum strap to make it easier to carry as a backpack.
