Here's what others have to say...

shoulder straps are nice

shoulder straps are nice

Spent several days in a jungle house on the Osa Peninsula. Backpack straps on the duffel made the 10 minute trek up from the boat and back easier than hand straps or traditional over one shoulder.

I'm a fan of the backpack straps.

Good quality too pricey,waiting for sale

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I recently picked up a medium, a little smaller then expected. I will wait to see if this bag goes on sale then pick up a large. There are other products out there that match quality with a better price. However, I don't mind paying a "little more" for the goat. Only other negative is that is would be nice to have a U-shaped opening to easily access gear.

Great Duffel - Awkward Straps

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got the large duffel as a gift for my sister's family as their 4 kids are involved in a ton of activities & I thought this would be helpful for lugging gear to/from all their various activites.

It seems very sturdy & the large can definitely hold a ton of stuff!! The white interior is awesome, as another reviewer mentioned, so you can more easily find your belongings.

I wish the straps were more traditional duffel straps as it's a little awkward to carry duffel style w/ the backpack straps. I'll definitely be ordering one or two of these for myself & my gear storage needs!

What makes this bag awesome?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It could be that it's seriously burly, with raft-trip-ready water shedding nylon and solid construction. But the true win in this duffel is the interior, a glorious off-white that reveals every content with unmistakable clarity. I'm ever flummoxed by big name bag makers who convert the interior of their duffels into dark voids that conceal everything inside. Finally, a bag with a white interior. Kudos to bc.com for thinking about the user.

Roomy and sturdy.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Feels very durable, lots of room inside.
Medium size fits great in an overhead compartment.
The backpack straps make it a little awkward to carry as a duffel.
Will probably buy another in medium and large.

Ultimate Storage Machine

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am a bit biased, because many bags could fit my use as a gear storage bag (more so than a travel bag), but then again I work at backcountry. I purchased this to reduce clutter in our gear closet. We currently have it in Large, and it holds all our bike stuff. This include Jerseys, shorts, shoes (2), helmets (4), some extra tools, tubes, hand pumps, everything you would have on your body during a long ride other than a backpack and bladder. I was worried about the size, I didn't need something massive. However, with the shape of this bag, you can really get a lot in it. I was surprised. And with the squared off bottom, it fit nicely in the bottom of the gear closet. I haven't tried the pack straps, but I am sure they will come in handy at some point. Even if its just for the winter/summer gear turnover.

Rad bag.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this bag for several car camping ventures as well as airline travel. If you're at all concerned about adequate volume... don't be. This bag can haul. I've got a large and can easily fit more than a week's worth of clothing in it, or enough technical gear to get the job done. It's got some very beefy and durable zippers, as well as being very weather resistant (I don't say waterproof because if you dropped it in a river and didn't grab it right away, your stuff will probably get wet eventually.)

The backpack carry function can be a bit awkward as it tends to sag, but still very functional.

Take it anywhere

Take it anywhere

Large is large indeed!
It will hold all of my camping gear and all of my biking gear. I use this bag anytime I am car camping because it will hold everything I need it to and it quite durable. As you'll see from some of the reviews below me, it' s not top of the line, but I had a older Stoic version and this has definitely been upgraded from then. It's held up great for me so far.

Fits perfect in an overhead compartment

Size medium in the overhead, the duffel holds so much in there, could use it for a week long trip

These bags hold a lot more than it would appear, and they've become a regular part of my excursions, including packing enough for a family of four touring the West.

Solid, inexpensive alternate

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Want a basecamp duffle but don't want to pay the premium? Check these out. While I second what Matt said below regarding the ability to dig around for gear and shoulder straps, its a great bag for my bike gear. Throw it all in one spot and throw it in the truck. Great gear bag for sure! I will be flying with it as my carry on this weekend.

Good, Not great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was pretty hyped on this thing, because I love rocking the Goat. But, it is not the duffel I hoped it to be. While the quality of materials and construction is awesome, the handle.strap combo is not great, and the opening makes it hard to rifle through gear inside the bag.

I find it strange that the shoulder straps are on the top of the bag, seems they would work a lot better on the bottom, since the bottom is flat. also having the big handles on top make it hard to carry it at your side. I like the handles on the ends. those are nice, but would have liked to see grab handles on the top and shoulder straps on the side.

I have a large and a medium. they are good sizes they can fit a lot of gear which I like, and i suspect I will use them for a long while as I do not anticipate them wearing out soon. But I will probably replace them with either the Marmot long hauler or the Mountain hardwear expedition duffel, since I like the big U shaped zipper those have.

All in all they are OK duffels.

"the bag that keeps on giving"

"the bag that keeps on giving"

Besides holding everything I needed for a week on lake Powell, we were able to keep throwing random items in my bag while cleaning up on the way back to the marina ...to which my wife commented, "I can't believe how much that thing holds ...it's the bag that keeps on giving".

Solid, but strangely shaped

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used it for 7 days trip - attached to a horse. Solid and has a long zipper, what makes it easy to pack. However very uncomfortable for even short backpacking. My XL has a shape of a cube. Most of its content shifted when trying to wear it as a backpack. I prefer my other duffel bag that is prolonged, as opposed to this cube-shaped bag.

Solid duffel for the price is good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a solid duffel. I have the XL and I can't verify the size but it is huge. Haven't test the water resistance but it's all the welded seam stuff I have used from BC and stoic is solid. Here are the things it is missing/needs. An interior or lid pocket. To keep things you will need to have handy on a trip and don't want to dig for. A better way to remove the backpack straps and an additional carry option. A u-shaped lid, this is a must, not so much for loading but for keeping this organized and providing access to your gear. Lashing points to tie gear down and lash to cars, sleds whatever. Still if you get it on sale, it is a great piece for the price. I mean keep the garage organized if nothing else.

Fits everything plus the kitchen sink.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought 2 of these (XL) to help keep all of my camping stuff in one place. I wasn't expecting them to be as big as they are. The XL is absolutely massive, and could easily fit a tent, pads, and sleeping bags for a few people.

My only gripe about the bag is that when using the backpack straps, it is very hard to keep the bag centered on your back. (it just wants to flop to one side or the other)

Overall this bag is awesome, and if your looking for a rugged duffel that holds a ton of gear, you won't be disappointed. Plus it has a rad goat on it!

If you get it on sale is good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a good bag if you can get it on sale. Needs a D shape opening lid, and better backpack straps. Still is solid and it works, mainly I use to keep my Garage uncluttered in the off season, as it holds just about all of my snowboard lose items (everything from boots to split bindings to poles and clothing items) But for travel, there are better products out there and they are worth the $ to get those

Can't get enough of the goat

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The more backcountry.com brand products I try the more I am digging their stuff. Quality build for a little travel pack. The build seems pretty bomb so far. The backpack straps are cool, the only thing I don't like about them is the spacing. I should start by saying I got this in a medium. The top and bottom spacing are the same so when you wear it and tighten it down, the back awkwardly presses into the small of your back. The straps are pretty strong and again the materials of this duffel are top notch for as light as it is. The one thing that had me perplexed was the little taps at the ends of both of the ends above the handles and next to the zipper line. They seemed odd so I called BC up and they told me it was to hold the zipper open when loading and unloading. I tried them out since and have to say pretty useless. aside from these observations Love this pack and great for a carryon or a quick ditty heading to the trail.

Medium

Medium

I put a biner on it for reference if how big the medium is. Also, hopefully if you look closely you can see the glue lines to see how big the side pocket is. The side pocket is pretty fantastically large: It's big enough to hold 6 Cliff bars, 2 rolls of medical tape a 12oz bag of protein powder, and probably a little more if I tried. Also, the bag is sitting in the front seat of my car, if that helps with sizing as well.
