If you won’t be travelling far on foot or moving locations multiple times on your trip, a duffel bag is your go-to. Available in a range of sizes, from around 30L to 120L, it’s easy to pick the right option to suit your getaway.
Sturdy, spacious and flexible, they're ideal for throwing in bulkier items like snow boots or camping gear. Plus, their less rigid structure makes them great when luggage space is limited as they can be crammed into spaces wheeled suitcases would never fit.
They usually come with shoulder straps and grab handles to make carrying easy, and many can be opened from either side, making them a doddle to pack and unpack at a moment’s notice.
Duffels deliver the goods on expeditions as they are usually made from durable, hardwearing and abrasion-resistant materials and offer some water resistance, in the event of rain.
Another big plus for duffel bags is that they make great sports bags when you’re not out exploring. So instead of collecting dust in the attic not getting used, you can make the most of them all year-round.
There are some things to consider though. We’d be lying if we said duffel bags are easy to carry over long distances, and while they are great for just chucking things into, it can be hard to keep your gear organised, especially if you’re packing and unpacking every few days.
