"Makes your significant other break up with you."
That's right, my boyfriend of 5 years broke up with me once I bought this bag. Coincidence? I think not. Clearly he was jealous of the sex appeal of this Gregory bag. So if you want to stay in a relationship, maybe this bag isn't for you. However, if you plan on toting around weeks worth of clothes while going through an ugly break up, then this is your go to duffel bag. Super sturdy and versatile in the ways that you can carry it. I prefer to pack it full of tissues, cigarettes, liquor, and pints of ice cream, then throw it over my shoulder. This has been the only bag I've been using the last 5 months, so it's been through some rough treatment and still holds up...
"I will go with my gut instrinct on size, next time"
The rep was professional, patient, and friendly. It was my pleasure to do business with you. Meanwhile, the bag was too small. I had wanted the larger one but was talked into the smaller one which was too small for my recent trip and basic mountain biking gear.
I bought this instead of the TNF bas camp duffel because this seemed to have better carry straps. I bought the 120L, which is a good size - not too big but big enough to swallow all my gear. The straps are all well secured on the bag and built to last. The material is water proof and should stand up to the worst the airlines can dish out.
"Definitel worth the price, durable material"
I bought this bag to carry my Denali Pro backpack and not have airlines destroy it. This pack works great. I bought the 120L version and it fits the Denali Pro and various other accessories that I would normally attach to the outside. I haven't been in rain with this backpack, but given the material, I imagine it would stand up pretty well to rain. The shoulder straps that come with the bag are comfortable, but obviously not as good as a real backpack
