Great Multi-Purpose bag

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is one of the higher quality, multi-use duffel bags I've purchased. I was able to travel abroad for 2 weeks with this bag (minimalist style packing) as well as carry pheasant hunting gear out to South Dakota. The high quality zipper and fabric overlay on top of the zipper prevent dust and grim from reaching your gear. The zippered side pouch is a great feature and allows you to quarantine your stanky clothes from your clean clothes. Highly recommend.

Always by my desk

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I use this duffel every week. It's excellent for packing a change of clothes for the office after a dawn patrol ski run before work. I really like the separate compartment for keeping wet items or shoes away from your nice clothes. The backpack straps are really handy for keeping your hands free for other items. It's very well made - I feel like it will last me for decades of travel. If you are doing a bigger trip, go for the larger sizes. I find the 40L to be perfect for day to day life (gym, office, etc.) and up to 3 or 4 day weekend trips.

Awesome bag for any purpose

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a really awesome duffel bag. I use it to keep all of my fishing gear in. It easily fits my waders, wading boots, hip pack and some other essentials in it. The gear loops and compression straps come in handy when clipping things to the bag or clipping in my rod tube. This bag is also great for traveling. The straps allowing it to be carried like a backpack make is a nice carry on with all of your clothes for your trip so you can avoid paying for a checked bag. They fit easily into overhead compartments. The fabric of this bag is also really durable and water repellent so you won't need to worry about your gear inside getting wet. I recommend this bag for sure!

Great All Around Bag

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I love how durable this bag is. Shoulder straps are super convenient and comfortable. Cinch straps allow you to compress the bag in case you don't use it's max capacity. The separate shoe compartment is super useful to keep your dirty kicks away from the rest of the stuff you're packing. The outside pocket is a little difficult to zip and unzip but that's only a minor inconvenience. I wish the inside pocket was large enough to stick a tablet or laptop in but it's not. I've used this bag for the gym, traveling, and weekend warrior sports. When traveling I've used this bag for a 3 day trip.

Solid Gear Bag

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I got this bag as a gear bag for bike rides and for that it works pretty well. The space is well configured to hold just about everything for a ride or a weekend trip and construction quality seems good. Out of the box the bag smelled real plasticky which made it seem cheap but that smell has faded. The backpack style straps are an easy on/off which is nice and worked pretty well but the excess strap is a little too long and they take up to much space when packed into the bag. I could have used another medium size pocket but that's just personal preference. Beyond that, I really like the extendable side pocket for shoes or dirty laundry, the zip top opens and closes smoothly with one hand, and the material seems tough.

My New Travel Bag

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

My Blue 40L bag gets looks at the airport. If you want to stand out from the name-brand crowd, no better way to do it than showing your Backcountry Goat-Worthiness. Aside from the look, it's a sturdy bag, excellent water repellency, super comfortable shoulder straps. I used it more as a backpack than hand-carried as a duffel. May get the 60L also.

Awesome climbing bag

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I’ve taken it on planes, into the mountains, and fell in water with it on. I fully endorse this bad boy. Tough canvasy material that is decently waterproof. Shoulder straps are surprisingly comfortable and adjustable. Doesn’t hold smells. Just enough pockets. Separate shoe compartment. Will use as my climbing day/overnight pack for a loooooonnnnngggg time

Perfect for Airline Travel

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Great duffel for use as a carry-on when flying, or as your single bag on weekend adventures. The wet/dry compartments make a lot of sense, and the quality of construction is solid. Time will tell how this piece wears compared to the black hole duffel from Patagonia and TNF's similar product, but so far so good!

I live outta my duffel bags, I have for years. I've tried all the big brands out there, they're all good, but have small issues that totally miss the mark. This bag covers it all. The velcro handle is a must. It also has the seperator tab, clutch. The backpack straps are just comfy enough and super easy to add/remove with the sweet metal buckle. Burly fabric and zippers, check. Mesh pockets with a logical layout to the dividers, done. Small external pocket, got that. To top is all off, the feature that really sets this bag apart is seperate waterproof bottom compartment. I love THIS, it's my dirty/wet clothes storage. This bags ability to keep clean gear away from the funky is HUGE. For the 5-7 day trip, this duffel is my go-to.

great bag. Got this over the patagonia one. Although the end pocket is kind of awkward.

Good Bag

Great for slightly wet conditions and short pack trips. Very durable and just great all around bag. The shoulder straps are useful for carrying larger loads.

>Rating: 5

Durable and clean.

I've taken this bag to desert trips and yurt trips, and it sheds off all the sand and snow I drag it through every time. It looks just like how I bought it once we get home. The shoulder straps are particularly useful when I'm hauling heavy gear in the bag.

Amazing!

I absolutely love this bag. It’s the perfect size for a carry on and the backpack straps are super comfortable. It has a bunch of very thoughtful features. I cannot imagine a better duffel, at any price!

Little bag with big features

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this instead of the better-known competitor because I can pack a Sage fly rod in the tube into the bag. Then I examined the waterproof interior baffled storage and thought "WOW"> I can finally travel and not worrying about liquids for the trip. This duffel is well made and holds it's shape better than the other brand.

Great

I'm usually a patagonia blackhole kind of girl but i really enjoy this duffel as well. it has the straps that turn into a backpack and works great as a carry on or a day trip/weekend trip bag. really durable and at a lower price point.

New Favorite Duffel!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This is my new favorite travel duffel! I wanted something durable that was also small enough to carry on a plane, and this fits the bill perfectly. I can pack enough clothing for a week long trip, and love the wet/dry compartment for keeping shoes and other dirty/wet items separated from the rest of my things. The backpack straps are comfortable and very adjustable, and I love how solid and structured the duffel is. My last duffel/backpack conversion always felt so floppy when I tried to use it as a backpack, but this one holds its shape and is very comfortable to wear. Highly recommend this bag for any sort of short term travel or camping situation!

>Rating: 5

The greatest thing ever!

I want a me bag that can go anywhere and hold at least a weeks worth of stuff! The colour scheme of the white one is fantastic. I LOVE how it can turn into a backpack, the sturdy bottom works well on rocks, and it can hold a weeks worth of clothing. Not to big, not to small, just right.

>Rating: 5

Can't Find a Flaw!

The perfect bag for light weight or short term travel. Well placed and adequately sized pockets. The capability to switch between carrying the bag by the handles to wearing it as a backpack makes carrying your load 10X easier to manage! Have yet to find a bag this size that is more durable.

Perfect Bag for Week Long Trip

This thing is awesome. I just took it on a week long surf/camp trip and it was perfect. Great/Simple organization and I loved the wet/dry compartment. LOVE how burly/durable the material feels, too!

is this carry-on size?

Hi Elizabeth - it sure is! Fits well both in the overhead compartment as well as at your feet. I travel with it all the time (both domestic and international) and have had no issues.

Does the black color have a logo on the end? If so, what color are the logos?

Hey David, Yes it does! It has a black logo on the end - just like the logo color on the side of the duffel in the main image.

Does this have a traditional sling type shoulder strap? If not, how comfortable are the backpack straps when carrying like a traditional sling type?

Hi Christopher, While the bag is designed for a backpack carry, you can easily convert to a shoulder carry. Entirely remove on of the straps and stow it away. Unclip one end of the remaining strap and re-attach to the buckle used by the strap you just removed. Lengthen the remaining strap as necessary and now you can carry the bag shoulder style. Ben

I may end up having to hike for 5-6 hours with this bag on as a backpack (with just enough stuff in it for an overnight trip), does anyone have any feedback on how comfortable it is to wear as a backpack for long periods of time or if I should try to find an alternative? Otherwise it suits my needs perfectly.

Hey Amanda! This is a great duffel but I would not suggest using it for a 5-6 hour hike. If you are looking for something to use that is similar but is designed for a longer hike, I would recommend checking out the Osprey Fairview 40L: https://www.backcountry.com/osprey-packs-fairview-40-backpack-womens?s=a .

Is this bag the same as the Backcountry Trekker 40L duffel bag?

Yes it is! We changed the style name because we swapped out some of the buckles on the prior version to be metal (vs. plastic before).
