Travel duffels take the hassle out of transporting all your gear with you, whether you’re travelling near or far. Available in an impressive array of designs, with sizes ranging from compact to spacious, these practical and stylish bags have come a long way from the original more utilitarian models. One of the main characteristics of both women’s and men’s duffle bags is that they’re tough and robust.
Why use a duffel bag?
There are many benefits of using duffle bags:
• Light to carry.
• Easy to access and clean.
• Versatile – ideal for sport, leisure, and business.
How to choose a duffle bag
Duffels are some of the most versatile types of bag you’ll find, with options ranging from fluorescent nylon through to traditional leather. With models from cheap and cheerful to luxurious, it’s important to consider when and where you’re likely to use your bag in the future.
Size options for travel duffels start at a modest couple of litres and go up to a massive 100 litres, so be sure to pick a size that’s appropriate for your intended use. There’s no point in choosing a 70-litre model if you’re just looking for a small tote to carry your kit to the gym every night. Equally, you’re not going to get far on your world tour if you try to fit all your possessions in a 25-litre weekend bag.
Traditionally, duffels have tended to be cylindrical in shape and accessed from the top, but there are plenty of variations on the theme: they come with hand, shoulder or back straps, and you can even get a duffle holdall bag with wheels. What’s more, there are plenty of options of what colour to get your bag in.
