Shows both the carrying and compression straps. No problems getting this largest model through airline size limitations when it was cinched down a bit.
At the larger size ranges, Mammut makes 110 and 140-liter models. They are proportioned shorter and stouter than other brands of similar capacity, a feature that surprisingly makes them more comfortable to carry. By the way, they run small for their claimed capacity. I was in the market for a 120L model since that's the ideal size to avoid airline oversize baggage limits (L + W + H < 62 inches). But the 140L Mammut works just fine if it's cinched down a bit with the compression straps. The shoulder straps are well-positioned and padded so, of all the brands I tried fully loaded with 40+ lbs, it was the only one that was comfortable and stable on the back, and it didn't bang into the lower hamstrings while walking. The bag is lined with a light color so you can see your gear, and has super sturdy construction without excessive weight. The 140L model has a zip pouch to stow the shoulder straps, and the buckles at the lower mount are nicely pocketed to keep the grime out. The features and design are well thought out. All the straps are 1.5+ inches wide, not the narrow, twisty straps found on other brands. The zipper is smooth-acting, with lock-loops and is pocketed under a weather flap. I liked this duffel so much that I kept both the 110L or 140L models. Will update this review after 40 days in Asia, lashed on yaks and through airports.

I love the size, shape and quality of these duffels. Perfect for air travel or road tripping to keep things organized. They're simple and well built. I especially like the side straps, of tubular webbing.
Sorry for the random sizes, but I've managed to get together dimensions for three of these:
60 liters- 22? long 10? deep 15.5? wide
90 liters- 25? long 12? deep 12? wide
140 liters- 28? long 12? deep 18? wide
I know that there are few literally...
I know that there are few literally waterproof duffels and I don't assume this one to be perfectly waterproof, but I was wondering if anybody had made experience with heavy rain, maybe even a quick dunk u/w?! Thanks!!
Water is a tricky thing, it will always find its way in. I'd stick to dry bags, duffels, or if there are just a few items that need to be absolutely dry, I'd put them in a dry sack and then put them in this.
Gets compliments at the airport

Came to know about the Mammut Cargon Duffel thru a Japanese outdoor gear website. I was drawn it by its stark good looks!. Jet black with ferrari red trim!
The build quality is excellent. From the materials to the thoughtful pockets, the haul straps that double-up as a back-pack straps.
I got the smallest version as i already have a L size Base Camp Duffel from The North Face.
This duffel has received compliments twice! Both times at the airport from the immigration officers :)
Check it out!

Excellent and durable duffel bag. Built for abuse. I use the 90,110 and 140 for organizing and travelling with gear. Large opening, robust locking zippers, multiple pockets. I use the shoulder straps to carry it and stow them away when I check the bag into the airlines. I've been using them for a few years now and have yet to put a hole in one.
Mammut Cargon Duffel
Multipurpose do it all bag
Managed to get my hands on this bag (40L) via frequent flyer miles, so couldn't be happier. The bag is built like a tank, the material its made out off is so thick and takes a beating,Been using it for almost everything , from a gym bag to hoarding my climbing gear. The bottom has a very nice almost waterproof layer which makes it convenient to just lay ti down almost anywhere. The straps can turn this from a duffel to a backpack quite easily and there are handles on both ends of the bag which make pulling out of the trunk or dragging it so convenient. Plenty of inside pockets lining on the inside of the bag and 2 zippered compartments on the duffel door and 1 additional outside zippered one. Multipurpose do it all bag.
Excellent duffel bag
Surprised there aren't more reviews of these duffels. I've looked at TNF, Patagonia, and Marmot, and several other duffel bags. It really came down to a dead heat between Marmot and Mammut. I ordered the Mammut cargon 60L bag and am highly satisfied. I needed a 60L bag to carry my canyoneering equipment. I did like the Marmot bags as well, but they come in atypical sizes: 50L and 75L. I thought about the 75L bag, but that bag is too long IMO (it is 29.5" long), making it difficult to carry and stow. Both Marmot and Mammut duffels seem to use the same strap configuration, which can be used as backpack straps or can be joined together as a single handle (comment by reviewer below about "tuck away" shoulder straps--at least the 60L does NOT have this, I don't know what he is talking about). Of course, these backpack straps can be removed. None of these duffels are waterproof, but the bottom of the Mammut is a water-resistant vinyl material--good if you are setting your bag down on wet ground or damp grass. In contrast, the vinyl material on the Marmot appear to be on the TOP & SIDES of the bag (judging by picture). The Mammut has one "outside" zipper pocket on one end of the duffel, which is of good size. The main compartment is easily packed and accessed through zippered lid. There are two zipper "mesh" pockets on the underside of the lid (for personal items,e.g. keys, cellphones, etc.). Finally, on the inside front there are three "organizer pockets" for holding items that partially close w/ velcro tabs. On the outside of the bag, there are two sets of three attachment points for clipping items to bag w/ carabiner. Two compression straps and two handles (on the ends) round out the features of this bag. To me, this bag is a keeper.
better than a base camp
Love this duffel! Bought the big size 140L and went back for a small one. Such great Mammut quality and design. Have owned several Base Camp Duffels from North Face and they are good but the fabric over time has cracked and the base get worna dn has holes. This Mammut duffel seems more bomber and love the tuck away shoulder straps as opposed to the ones you need to undo to take off. Also the compression straps turn into a carrying handle which is really nice to be able to set it up either way. Strap the small one on the back of my motorcycle and have ridden many miles in the rain and the thing stays dry for hours which is great as its not designed to be waterproof. I think if it sat in water or water sat on it it would leak but on the bike the water rolls off. great little pockets on the inside and outside. Cost a bit more but these should last a long long time. Always happy with Mammut stuff.
