I bought this bag for my fiance for Christmas. We had been looking at duffel bags for quite some time and he liked this better than Patagonia Black Hole. We love all the pockets, especially the exterior side pocket and the interior pocket on the top lid. He loves it! I love it! He bought me one for a wedding gift. We use them everywhere we travel. The construction and material is super durable. If you're debating, you should get it.
Got the large 75l for use as luggage. Plenty of room, nice pockets and good straps. This thing is Heavy Duty! It is most definitely NOT one of those nylon gym bags that falls apart in a year. Heavy material, super strong, lockable zippers and great straps. And pretty much waterproof. I have no hesitation letting the airlines abuse this thing. Looking forward to many years of use. Another great Marmot product!
"Placed under faucet, No Leaks! Love it!"
First off make sure to buy the newer model# 25250. Its worth little extra money. If you love Marmot, this lives up to the name! Straps are comfortable, D-zip protects zipper from elements, there is an orange fabric outlining interior for contrast and 2 interior pockets! This ONE bag will be my camping, ski, etc bag! Two King pillows in this bag still leaves a little room for more stuff! Placed this under faucet and stretched the seams and no leaking - would trust thus bag in everyday use. 110% satisfied. Derek
