Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This bag has been with me in just about every climate. From winter alpine trips to being drug through a sandy desert this thing has seen it all. I love how reinforced the stitching is, there aren't any places that are coming undone. The bag is also waterproof. The backpack straps are great because I am kind of short and when my large bag is full to bursting there aren't many other ways of carrying it. This bag has carried 2 months worth of clothes on an airplane and besides a small shoulder bag, this is the only bag I ever need on trips- it fits everything. If there were a downside it would be the 'bottomless-pit' that it turns into when you are looking for something when its full- but it's a duffel and that is just how they are. I got mine in yellow and its perfect for spotting at a crag or in a bustling airport. I would definitely buy it again. Don't waste your time with the competitions 'Black Hole', mine held up for about 3 months before I had to retire it.
