Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was looking for a water resistant bag to take out on the boat when I go on dive trips. I needed something to hold a change of clothes, my under water camera housing, my save a dive kit, first aid kit, snacks, sunblock and all the other little extras I have accumulated that I like to have along with me. It is just the right size. I purchased the red bag, it was reduced significantly in comparison to the other colors offered-but red and scuba diving go together so it was the perfect color in the end for it's use. I like the mesh pockets on the top for chapstick, money and ID so they don't get lost in my bag. The bag is light weight which I was so happy about upon arrival. I thought it was going to be heavier then it was just from the look of it. It's very sturdy and I love the back pack straps as it makes hauling all of my gear to the boat easier if I can swing it over my shoulder. Couldn't be happier. I've got Patagonia coats and this is my first go with one of their duffels. I'm sure I will be quite pleased!
