"If you live out of your car between adventures, get this."
We have three large size duffels and after totally abusing them in dirt,snow and ice they look practically new. Large size can easily fit ski gear-helmet,boots,avi pack, clothes or summer things like a small tent,2 fly rods, 2 compressed sleeping bags and hiking boots. Our labrador loves snoozing on the large size, so it doubles as a dog bed. Great for car camping or traveling. The backpack straps make it easy to carry. You can even carry one on your back, one on your front and still have an extra hand to walk the dog. Get one (or two) and you won't be disappointed!
"The best bag money can buy to move ur self with ur gear"
The XL is a MONSTER I travel on foot the XL was too big and is now my cycling bag it swallows all my cycling gear with ease. I am a bigger guy the XL is challenging to carry up a flight of stairs with a bicycle. The XS is small I use it as a school backpack, riding back pack. The medium is the bag I wish I bought the first time great for international trips, if it doesn't fit in this bag you need to stop being a diva and leave some crap at home. When smuggling a bunch of wine from Germany in XL I noticed bottles hurting my back digging in, I have been told to put cardboard on top of the wine (part facing your back when pack is on) and it would significantly increase the comfort.
This duffel bag is far superior to all the rest of the duffel bags in this universe. I travel to and from India and the United States frequently and this is the most perfect, strong and tear proof bag I have ever used! I love the red and black color as it stands out amongst all the other luggage! I can fit SO much stuff in these bags, and far more weight then I could put in suitcases. I am so glad I have made the switch from heavy, awkward suitcases to these lightweight duffels!
I purchased the XL and have used it on several trips as a base camp bag. I can put a week's worth of gear in this bag. Everything. DUAL PURPOSE ALERT! When I'm not on a trip this bag serves as an excellent laundry tote bag. I can throw an entire week's worth of clothes in this thing and tote them to the laundromat. Baskets and other bags have always broken, but this thing is beastly. It's been used easily over 50 times and is still in mint condition. Buy now.
Recently got the medium which fits all my needs now went on to the large to fit my wife's "necessities" and mine for weekend getaways consolidated into one bag. No more lugging roller bags and back packs off ferries or planes, the large NF duffel is the only bag I need
Listened to other reviews on the bag before purchase and everyone seemed to be right on. Medium is perfect for a weekend trip to the cabin, ore than enough room for a few sets of clothes and the gear. Couldn't be happier, NF all the way!!
I have medium - whether skiing in the Rockies with gear for the week or backpacking Europe for a month, this is the only bad I've ever needed. Looking to get a small in order to carry on flights fully packed.
