All bags are not created equal
Sure you can find cheaper duffel bags, but if you want to buy one bag for life, to haul stuff in, this is it. Extremely well made, great straps, not trying to be something its not. Its a North Face duffel bag made with great seams, material and straps, what else would you expect. Definitely recommend. By the way, always go larger than you think, I went large, and love it. Plenty of room, I dont worry about what I cant fit.
