- Q & A
I wish I had gone a size bigger
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I live on the road over half the year and the Cargon Duffel 110L wasn't quite perfect, had been getting a tad worn (due to me leaving some sharp objects in it) and I just wanted to try something else in spite of it being a great bag. I also used to Gregory Stash's, one a 115L and another a 95L and both extensively on the road more often than I was at home.
First I really do like the Marmot bags construction, the colors and options (I got the blue), the two end pockets and it's a fine bag and it feels fine on my shoulder. The weatherproofing on the top is nice. There is a zipper pocket flap on the bottom inside of the bag that's a nice touch, but hard to access in a pinch when the bags more full.
It does feel small for 105L and I wish I would have gone with the expedition size which is 120 or 125L if I remember right. My Mammut Cargon 110L carried about the same amount of clothes and stuff and yet I could still cram in two bottles of liquor along with a lot of other stuff I forgot about that had accumulated in my bag when it was time to airline home. With this 105L bag I feel it's more of a chore to dig through to access stuff in the bag and I notice it happening much more than with my Cargon of where I pack the bag only to realize I packed on top of the strap and have to rearrange things to get it out. I think most of my problems are from the size I ordered as it feels more than 5L smaller than the Cargon and that might be from some of that space being dedicated to the end pockets.
I also had a gregory duffel 115L 4+ years ago that I could pack and pack and just accumulate a lot more without having to worry that it would all zip up. Maybe the stiffer weather resistant lid is the issue with really getting it all packed up and while it is weather resistant on the top I believe it's not water resistant on the bottom so if it's wet outside at the airport your bag may get damp on the bottom depending on how wet it is and how long the airline crews leave it outside during loading/unloading. The Mammut Cargon I had was weatherproofed on the bottom and not on the top and I think I preffered that as I could set it down on wet surfaces like when trying to get into my trunk or in other instances when handling it outside as I could just wipe it down if I set it down in dirt.
I was really tempted to give this bag 5 stars and had I went with the Expedition that was 15 liters bigger than my previous bag instead of 5 liters smaller I probably would have given it 5 stars as that difference is really noticeable, especially when I travelled pretty comfortably with the Stash 95L as it seemed easier to access and close. The lid is one huge compartment instead of smaller ones which makes it hard to compartmentalize and close the lid as the stuff in it can bunch up and move around on top of what you're trying to close it on.
What a bag!!

Got this bag for a trip to Glacier National Park. Packed enough stuff to last 10 days including my hiking boots. Nice to have a sealed off zippered area for hiking boots. The straps worked well for me to use the bag like a backpack too ( handy in the airport and parking lot). Recommend this bag for long vacations!!
