Great Duffel - tough, durable and waterproof. I left it outside during a snow storm with my clean clothes and some electronics inside. Everything was dry, even though the outside was wet and muddy. I like the shoulder straps that allow the pack to be carried on my back. It's expensive, but will outlive other duffels by years. Only drawback is the zippers. They are not sealed and in heavy rain would probably let water inside. Good Investment.
