Stormfront 65L Wet/Dry Duffel

Some things just don't mix: oil and water, pickles and peanut butter, soaking wet waders, and dry socks. Fortunately, the Patagonia Stormfront Wet/Dry Duffel has separate compartments for wet and dry gear, with a floating divider to make certain no slippery bits cross the line defining the dry zone. In addition, the damp side is made from mesh to minimize the amount of mold or odor that could develop on the trip back from Key West.

Sturdy nylon on the dry side puts on a stoic face when confronted with vicious latches on the overhead bin or free-range flies on board your chartered vessel, while polyester mesh helps circulate fresh air throughout the wet side. Two zippers on top gives you the choice of reaching into the wet or dry part of the bag, just in case you're suddenly squeamish about slimy, wet rubber.

The shoulder strap has a carrying pad, and adjusts to best fit your body. Grab handles on either end make it easy to snatch your bag off the dock and heave it into the boat. A lone front stash pocket on the dry side is the perfect place to hide your permit or passport. Two front lash points work beautifully as a rod holder, or you can hang a wading boot as you make your way from the beach to your hotel room.

  • Ideal for separating gear at river take-outs, surf breaks, and trailheads

  • Split zippered compartments allow you to separate dry and wet gear

Love this duffel but it's not waterproof

I returned this product before using it

I bought this bag and totally fell in love with it. It's insanely well built in terms of the seams and stitching — I felt I could drag it across a rocky riverbed and it would be fine. I also dig its minimalist style. Everything, including the size, of this bag is perfect EXCEPT the zippers. The zippers are NOT waterproof and the dual zip functionality results in a small gap (that cannot be closed) where water can get through. If the zippers were T-zip or waterproofed somehow to ensure no water could get in, then this bag would be worth its $250 (or even more). Was sad to return it, but I need something that won't let water inside.

Perfect for Lightweight Travel

I've put it through the wringer

I use a rolling duffle to travel on bigger trips and make my way through the airport but if space and weight are absolutely critical (e.g., float plane trips) this wet/dry unstructured duffle is a must have because it is lighter and easier to pack into a cargo hold. A structured rolling duffle is heavier and in some cases more restrictive in terms of where it can go. The only downside to this duffle is that without wheels, the more you put into it, the more you have to haul over your shoulder rather than rolling.

Overlander's Best Friend

I've put it through the wringer

Save room in the vehicle and throw this tough as nails duffel on the roof. It's water proof, dirt proof, and bugs wipe off very easily. I would recommend mesh bags for organization as finding things in the dark can be difficult. The divider works well and the wet/dry storage is really nice for wet gear after a day of fishing.

Love it

I've used it several times

This thing is so great! I can use it on the river or for just heading out of town for the night at the hotel. Love it!! Easy zips, easy open. Good size

Awesome Duffle

I've put it through the wringer

The Patagonia Guidewater duffle is a great option for jamming your dry good essentials, a few extra layers and whatever gear you don't actively carry in your smaller pack. I've used this thing to lug my gear from home to the river, or on cross country fishing trips where it's necessary to check a bag on a flight. My only criticism of the bag is that it's not long enough to throw your fly rod case in when lugging it around, and doesn't have an external attachment to affix the rod to the outside for the same purpose. Not really a big deal though...
