Great everyday duffle bag
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Admittedly, I have not used this for any serious traveling. This bag has been a sort of go-to gym bag, triathlon transition bag. It's the perfect size where I can fit all my gym clothes plus toiletries and the like. Or, as a transition bag, I can literally fit my helmet, bike shoes, running shoes, wetsuit and all my other stuff. It's held the test of time so far and the outside material feel fairly bombproof. It seems to be waterproof as it sat in transition during a couple of triathlons where it poored and the inside stayed dry. Has two convenient mesh zippered pockets that sit on the inside of the lid and has one other side zippered pocket on the outside. Would highly recommend.

Patagonia Black Hole 45 Duffel
Durable & Stylish
I have two of these in this size. One is perfect for my boat stuff (rain gear, extra shoes, buffs, mustang pfd, sunblock, hats, sunglasses, etc). The other one I use as a travel bag for all of my personal items (blow dryer, make up, etc). It's the PERFECT size & holds up to the brutal wear & tear I put on my bags as a fisherman on the road 24-7. I also own the 120L & 60L sizes. Wouldn't trade them for anything!
I like this duffel a lot. In the same class as The North Face base camp duffel, this pack is durable and water resistant with backpack style straps and D fashioned access. The only down fall is this pack is not fully waterproof, which is a bummer, but though it is not I have had it in my basket on top of my car rack during down pour for hours and the worst of it was some moisture on the side traveling towards the front of the car. So it is pretty water resistant. This could be quickly fixed by packing gear and clothes in dry bags to help organize. Other than that this pack is pretty bomb and I will be using it for years to come I am sure. Just remember this is not waterproof if that is what your after. I got the XL 120L and if your going for the 90 I would suggest do yourself a favor and go 120.
