Lisa Quaglianawrote a review of Patagonia Arbor Duffel Bag 30L - 1831cu in on July 14, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this bag because I "needed" a gym bag. I have tons of backpacks but I needed to go old school so I could carry a work bag on my bag and a gym bag on my shoulder.
Basically, this is super simple... perfect size for workout clothes or a weekend overnight. Side pocket is what I was looking for - separate the small stuff or essentials.
The colors are the true reason I bought this bag. I could have gone to my nearest sporting goods store and bought a typical Nike duffle, but let's be real... Patagonia products kick a$$.
My black hole duffle is going strong and I refuse to buy a new one (the old version is better!) but it's just too big for a gym bag.
The should strap padding doesn't move, which I like. You can adjust it to the middle so that's good. The grab handles are handy as well (see what I did there?).
35L is perfect! Colors Rock (that's the real reason I bought it). I think it will last a long time. Check out the other photos I'll post!
