Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag for travel I wanted to run this through the wringer before writing a review. Just got back recently from a month-long trip to Europe. Didn't check any bags, just had this as my main carry-on. Anyways, it held up to a lot of abuse. The zipper is robust, along with the stitching, and the overall fabric of the bag. This bag is incredible, but there are a couple things to look out for: 1) if the bag is packed full or is just heavy it will become uncomfortable pretty quickly and 2) if you're intending to use it as your main carry-on, especially on any budget airlines, watch out for how full you pack the bag (I never ran into any problems, but I felt like if I had stuffed the bag full it wouldn't have fit the airline standards). I don't think I'll have to worry about this ever breaking, but I would buy another if it did. October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Everyday Bag I've had this bag for a few weeks now, and I love it. I love the tough exterior and has held up well to trips to the pool and getting stuffed in a gym locker every day. It's the perfect size for my everyday routine carrying my boots, pants, jacket, gym shoes, hygiene kit, towel, and gym cloths with no issues, along with a kindle and some odds and ends in the exterior pocket. It has an orange interior to help you distinguish the items inside, which is a handy feature. I appreciate the versatility that the straps offer by the ability to be used as shoulder straps and regular carrying handles. The zipper is hefty as well, so I'm not really worried about it failing. Great job Mountain Hardwear! September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big appetite, stands up to airport gorillas I couldn't risk critical items to lost luggage. Small model consumed my boots, trekking poles, backpack, heavy weather clothes. Strained to close the zippers over the load, then stowed it in the overhead compartments on multiple flights overseas. Endured several rain storms, tossed, smashed, dragged through multiple bus, train, van trips, and ultimately as checked airline baggage. Exchanged some paint along the way, too. Absolutely no structural problems. Absolutely no problem with carry-on restrictions, either. Wish: Removable shoulder straps. Loose straps get pulled in harmful ways. How about using carabiners? Otherwise five stars on all measures. Also wish I had the yellow exterior instead of black. Yellow is way easier to find in the pile. Really like: Light colored interior makes it easy to find small stuff. July 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ok except straps This is a nice idea, a tough duffel that can be carried like a backpack. The top entry is well thought out in that it keeps out dirt and rain while positioned so that you won't lay it on the ground and is comfortable against your back. The shoulder straps could be a little better, especially reinforced better at the top where they go into the bag. Starting to separate already. Maybe just get a carry on size backpack. June 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great All Around Bag I love this orange bombproof bag so much I had to order a second one knowing my wife would demand an explanation when it arrived. Not only are we still married; but the second bag ended up in the back of her car! Enough said gentlemen. September 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Weekend Duffel Initially, I could not decide between the small or medium sized duffel. I wanted a bag that I could travel with ease and, possilby, carry-on my luggage. Therefore, in the end I went with the small duffel. And it is the perfect size for carry-on/weekend bag size (I went Coho fishing for a weekend in Seattle), however, it is too small for extended expedition travel- such as 10 days in Rio. I have nothing but great reviews on the quality of the product too. It kept all items inside dry from a PNW rainstorm, zippers are large and ease to pull, and the material is super durable. My only complaint is the "backpack" straps. A little uncomfortable because of how small the padding is compared to the size and potential weight of the bag. But, I understand this is not a hiking pack by no means... September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality and Versatility Originally purchased this bag as simple carry-on bag for a few work related trips. It lived up to all of the expectations I had for it; well built, functional,simple and the ideal carry-on size. Though it functioned perfectly for the initial intended use, I have since upgraded to the Juggernaut 45 for my carry-on and started using this bag to carry personal rescue gear at the work. The small Expedition Duffel is a great size to carry basic gear including a helmet, harness and hardware. It provides a great level of protection from the elements and damage from other equipment. The wide external opening make it easy to see gear and facilitates the loading and removing larger items like a helmet. The internal compression strap help keep items form moving around and also cuts down on bag volume when not full. The quality of, and usefulness of the Expedition Duffel has convinced me to plan on purchasing the large size to store and carry the rest of my personal protective gear. I have no doubt that the quality of the material and workmanship will protect my gear better than a traditional nylon gear bag. April 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent, tough duffel. I bought this shortly before going to Morocco for 4 weeks of trekking, mountaineering, and more. It performed admirably, holding up very well through 4 weeks of overstuffing, being packed on a mule (at points), being checked on air flights, and being tossed around as it was loaded and unloaded from vehicles of every size and description. After all of this, the only damage done was a deep scratch, presumably from airline handling, but the material was intact and still kept water out. Would highly recommend this hard working duffel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by As expected I finally got to use this over the weekend. I was able to pack a lot of extra clothes from a purchase. The orange colour was easy to spot at baggage claim. The material is sturdy and the zipper is strong. The straps convert to a backpack style was helpful with the extra weight in the bag. November 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stellar Bag.. a bit small As an outdoor industry professional I've gone through a number of expedition packs from a variety of different manufacturers. Mountain Hardware's are easily the best on the market. I currently own their Expedition Duffle in both small and medium. For me, the small is a touch on the small side and the medium is a touch on the large size, but other than that I have no real complaints. They are both completely bomber and well built. The zippered top is designed in such a way that it is very easy to get at everything inside of the bag. I love the handle/shoulder strap combo, although I wouldn't want to hike around for more than an hour or so with a heavy load b/c the straps are a bit thin and can eat into the shoulders. All in all top notch product. May 20, 2013
