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.

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.

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.

Simplicity

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using two size mediums this winter, and they have been nothing but great bags! From trips back and forth between home and the resort to a week in Montana to snowmobiling in the Utah backcountry, I've had no problems yet.

As other reviews touch on, the bag is NOT completely waterproof, as the zippers leave a slight gap and the PU coating is just that, a coating. Nothing that bothers me, though, and I honestly think this would withstand water just fine as long as it is not submerged completely.

Overall, the simplicity and strength of this bag are what I love most, and I'm sure I will be using them all summer as well.

Good gear duffel bag

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great bag to quickly throw some gear in and put over your shoulder. I generally use it to just keep gear together for various excursions. Mnt. biking, quick overnight car camp, etc. Better than throwing your stuff in those reusable fabric grocery bags which is what I used to do. The large is pretty large and the xl is gigantic. I downsized from xl to large to medium and found that the medium was perfect size for carrying gear for a day trip.

Nice clean duffel

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This was given to me as a gift. I received a size large. It is very roomy.

The duffel is pretty simple. Not much by way of organization ...one main pocket and one side pocket. For me, I'm good with minimal pockets in a duffel. Usually I just want open space. Organization can be implemented by throwing zippered mesh bags inside. Mesh bags are great for organization and can be purchased cheap from big box stores.

Time will tell; but, this bag appears to be well built. The seams, zippers and stitching look great. Being water-resistant allows me to toss it in the back of my truck without care.

The backpack straps are nice for a short haul from car to building; but, the lack or frame and how far the package sits out away from your back (size Large) would make it a bit awkward for long treks. Non the less, these straps are really great for short point to point distances and I prefer them over a traditional single shoulder strap by a mile. Shoulder straps make carrying other items at the same time less awkward. This is probably my favorite feature along with the water-resistance.

Good bag. It's water-resistant and has backpack straps which is cool. On the other hand ...it's just a big water proof duffel with straps. Not one of those pieces of gear that I geek out about - 4 stars.

so far so good

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

After my stoic duffel blew up at every seam I was hesitant to purchase this bag. However the construction and design seems much better. I got it in size L and it's pretty big. Packed all of my snowboard gear for a day of resort riding and clothes for the weekend with room to spare. back pack straps are nice, could use a dedicated shoulder/sling strap but the dual straps work. 5 stars for now. will update in a few months on durability.

Perfect Weekend Bag

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have this bag in medium and I love it for hasty trips where I just need to throw some stuff into a bag real quick and take off. It has plenty of room so I don't need to play tetris with my clothes. It also has the one zipper external pocket to stash things you'll want to access quickly without digging through the main compartment. And it doesn't hurt that's it's waterproof and rugged so you can throw it around and not worry about your stuff. Unless your stuff is fragile, then I would not recommend throwing it around.

The medium is the perfect size for weekends trips where you just throw stuff in, and would also be sufficient for actual traveling and much longer trips with strategic packing. Personally though (and the reason I only gave it 4 stars), for more serious travels I would opt for something with more organization.

Still very happy with the purchase though, I use it pretty much every weekend. At the very least it makes a great trunk organizer to throw all your stuff in so you don't have junk floating around your car.

Good stuff

The Goat duffel is a nice addition to my bag repertoire. It's got a solid build and can hold a lot of gear. The backpack straps are nice, but a dedicated handle or two would be nice. Good stuff.

Good size

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought the medium and found it to be a prefect size for a overnight or mountain trip. Plenty of room for a few changes of clothes, boots, jacket and toiletries.
