Marmot Kompressor Duffle Bag - 2014cu in
Almost, but not close enough
The Marmot bag is very light, yet appears durable. I ordered the blue/gray combo which looks awesome. The bottom pad isn't too stiff, just enough to give the bag some shape while carrying it loaded. It slips out of the sewn-in sleeve if needed. The capacity (33L) is great for packing a day's worth of gear. However, the strap is where I feel it's lacking. The strap is much thinner than it appears in the pictures. It's only one inch wide,and the shoulder pad isn't very long and slides very easily along the strap so it doesn't feel that secure on my shoulder while I walk. It connects to the bag at tough plastic D-rings but the clips do not swivel so the strap always sits at a 90 degree angle at both ends. If you don't have much weight in the bag, or very far to walk, it won't be a problem. I had intended to use it for commuting with my gym gear, water, and often a jacket but had to return it vs. investing in a better strap to add on. The handle straps are comfortable enough, but I think they intended for you to be able to spread them out and carry the bag back-pack style. You'd have to be very slight and slender to pull that off so I don't think that's a viable carrying option if you wanted to be hands-free.
Otherwise, great service and fast shipping as always from BC so no complaints there.
