    Trekker 40L Duffel Bag

    Road trips across country, overnighters for work, or car-camping in the desert—the Backcountry Trekker 40L Duffel Bag does it all. The smaller of Backcountry's two duffel bags, it's an ideal size for weekend getaways, yet durable enough to haul extra gear if you're packing for the crag. The stowable shoulder straps can be tucked away while you're traveling, or used for a backpack-style carry when you need two free hands. Compression buckles help you pack efficiently, but also double as a gear attachment points, and a water-resistant internal pocket is convenient for storing wet gear away from the dry.

    • Medium-sized duffel for adventures near and far from home
    • Durable construction withstands treks into the wild
    • DWR treatment sheds weather as you travel
    • Water-resistant internal pocket for organizing wet and dry gear
    • Stowable shoulder straps double as a backpack carry

    Best Gear Bag ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is probably the most versatile duffel I have ever owned. So much so that I am now getting my brother one for his birthday. It is a perfect size for an overnight bag, and still not too big to use as a daily climbing pack or gym bag. It actually fits well as a backpack as well!

    All time duffle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this duffle. I was given this as a gift and at first, I wasn't sure if I'd use it. Now I'm starting to incorporate it into my urban use, not just for trips and outdoor outings. I'll start with the design and I have to say I'm really impressed with the backpack straps and the ease of use of taking them on and off. I prefer to use duffles as a backpack and this one really excels. I've considered taking off the duffle handles, but it hasn't quite gone that far. The pocket layout is perfect, with the main compartment, large side pocket and supplemental side pockets all able to hold a variety of items. Considering this pack is 40L it feels really small and I've had it fully packed on my back and it still feels the same. The dimensions suit my body type perfectly and the 40L is just about impossible to over pack. I was most impressed with this item while exploring glaciers in Iceland. The durability and DWR kept all of my gear cold in a rainy, icy and unforgiving environment. The color scheme isn't that important but I'm always impressed with the combinations that Backcountry come up with. This duffle is a versatile pack that I can't get enough of. I highly recommend it.

    All time duffle

    Great Gear bag!

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

    I needed a 40L back and was looking at the Patagonia Black hole and the North Basecamp Duffel. I feel like this is a great cross between the two. I love the side pocket with the large internal pouch. The material is nice and gives a water resistant quality. It is not waterproof but i use it for my camp gear and if there are any spills its easy to wipe off. I would recommend this duffel for any one looking for a heavy duty Gear bag.

    Versatile

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

    This is a great duffel for weekend trips or throwing your gear in for a daily adventure. The fabric is very durable and seems like it will hold up in tough conditions. The backpack straps are also very convenient for different carrying options and bustling through the airport or a city. A good buy.

    Best gear bag I have

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this duffel for a number of reasons, the first being that I loved the material. When seeing this duffel at the clinic for the first time and feeling the material, I liked how smooth but durable and rugged it felt. I really liked the big goat logo on the side and the straps that allowed it to be worn as a backpack. The other reason I bought it was because I needed a good bag to keep my waders boots and hip pack in. I fit all of that inside perfectly and the buckle straps on the side hold my rod tub nicely. Allowing me to transport all of my fishing gear hands free. Highly recommended bag.

    Excellent Duffle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The next time we have a severe weather emergency I'm crawling into this bag for protection. Seriously, I love all the details from side pockets, solid zippers, the inside pockets, the huge pocket at the end of the bag. So many great storage options. Rugged construction and I dig all the color options.

    This Bag Is On To Something!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I took this duffel on a 3 week trip to the Yucatan Peninsula. Long days wearing it on my back, rainstorms, bus rides, taxis, all the good stuff. It held up great in the rain and baggage handling. The extra compartment for dirty clothes was a plus, and didn't limit space when empty. There is a sweet pocket with a double-zipper for passports and wallets. I am also a big fan of the olive colorway.

    Pros:
    Cost efficient, great layout of pockets, sweet double-zipper passport pocket, nice colorways, 40L is perfect size to check or carry-on

    Cons: Backpack straps are too long (cut them off if you want), hand strap is in the way and uncomfortable when wearing as a backpack.

    Overall, this is a great first attempt at a duffel for Backcountry. With a few adjustments, they will have a Black Hole killer.

    LOVE this bag

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

    I absolutely love this duffel. The material is super durable and the straps are amazing. My only recommendation would be that the zipper is a little wider so my rope fits in a little easier (which can be fixed just by wrapping my rope a little tighter). But this bag is seriously my favorite.

    Versatile Duffel

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great duffel and has quickly become my go-to for weekend trips or shorter car camping trips. The size is perfect for necessary clothes, a couple of jackets, and a handful of random items. The material on it is nice and tough, with the bottom being even more reinforced. I was surprised by how nice the handle feels in hand, as they are usually pretty flimsy, but this one lays nice and flat. The inner pockets are great for keeping tiny items or electronics secured and safe. One of my favorite features is the side pocket with the expandable inner-pocket that goes into the main compartment. This creates a nice separate compartment for storing items, that can expand as you travel or as needed. Over-all this is a great duffel that I would recommend to anyone looking for a versatile, feature-packed, burly bag.

    Solid Duffel

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

    Recently took this on a car-camping-skatepark-tour-extravaganza and found the bag to be an awesome companion for my clothes.
    Plenty of space to hold all my extra shirts, socks, and underwear (essential after a long day of skateboarding/sweating)
    The outer material feels very durable and seems like it will hold up over the course of many future adventures

    **Favorite feature so far: "Water-resistant internal pocket for organizing wet and dry gear" -- I could put all my dirty clothes into this pocket at the end of each day, and it kept the stink off my reserve of clean clothes

    I'll be taking this on an airplane in about two weeks, this 40L bag is carry-on size so I'm stoked to see how it fares on this next trip

    Great for Travel

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently took a week long trip and needed an extra bag on top of my carry-on suitcase. This duffel was the perfect pick. It was small enough to be my 2nd carry-on and the backpack straps made it easy for me to carry throughout the airport while wheeling my suitcase. The inside compartments kept my travel items organized and the dry bag was perfect for dirty clothes and shoes. It was well designed too, because when you wear the duffel as a backpack the bottom compartment zipper is against your body so no one can unzip the compartment from behind, making it extra secure.

    Motorcycle trip from Pittsburgh to Cheyenne, through the Rockies to Albuquerque, east to Charlotte then back to the 'burg. Got sun, rain (hard and soft), wind and general abuse/stuffing, loading/unloading. It was a great bag throughout. Lash points are great. Backpack straps are great. Not waterproof in 20 minutes of rain at 70-80 mph, but certainly kept water out during all but the worst deluge I rode through. The

    Better than Patagonia

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

    I have a 60L Patagonia and Samsung Pay was having a 20% cashback on Backcountry items so when I saw this I figured why not get a slightly smaller one? I got the green and I've got to say it looks killer and the material feels strong and slick. I prefer this material to the Patagonia though I don't think the 60L Patagonia looks close to 1.5x the size of this bag. They look very close in size which makes me wonder about the sizing on the other bag.

    Nevertheless I'm stoked to have this new bag and can't wait to tell people about how great they are! I'm usually skeptical of private label items but this is just perfect!

    Great bag!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Picked one of these up recently. Holds everything I need it to for a full week's trip. The waterproof compartment is great. Solid construction and a sleek design. Love that it can be worn backpack style as well.

    Holds your stuff!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got this duffel for a trip to the mid-west. It fit everything I needed with room to spare. Cool and sleek design with tons of little pockets and compartments make this a great travel bag! Whether you are going to put climbing gear or dress shoes in it, it will hold your stuff!

    Backcountry travel in style

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

    I bought the 40L a month ago for a wedding and loved the pockets, the construction, and the designs. I was super excited to use it for travel given that it had straps to carry backpack style. This is a fantastic duffel to position among the new Backcountry products!

    Bike Duffel

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

    For those looking for weight specs- The 40L weighs 2 lb 9 oz and the 60L weighs 2 lb 14 oz.
    I bought this as a gym/bike bag due to it being slightly smaller than the Patagonia Black Hole 45L.
    I was pleasantly surprised with the dry bag insert and texture of the outside material.

    Perfect gym/weekend bag!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag is awesome. The 40L size is perfect as a multisport gym bag, my previous one was only 30L and constantly completely packed in a jumble of stuff whereas with this one I can get all my gym climbing gear, running shoes, and change of work cloths plus snacks and toiletries in and still organized. The shoe compartment also helps keep any chalky or dirty gear away from cloths and is big enough to accomodate more than one pair of shoes easily. Equally good for weekend trips, the duffle's dimensions are slightly bigger than carry on standards but if it's not bursting at the seams I wouldn't hesitate to carry it on a plane. Bonus feature is the backpack/shoulder straps, they carry equally well either way and are stowable if you need to streamline for travel. Also, the material this is made out of is really burly, I feel like I could drag it behind a car and it would still hold up.

    Perfect gym/weekend bag!
