Mystery Ranch makes the best duffel out thereI own a lot of gear, and a lot of it is Mystery Ranch gear. I love all of their products but felt seriously let down by the Cube Master duffels, which are let down by some strange hardware choices.
Enter the Mission Duffel. This thing is phenomenal. The construction is rock-solid (as you'd expect from a Mystery Ranch bag). The materials are great, and I particularly love the "heathered" twill-like look of the fabric on these bags, which is also waterproof. And unlike the Cube Master, the D-rings and other hardware on this bag work flawlessly.
This is also a really cleverly designed bag, with some great features that set it apart even from outstanding competitors like the Patagonia Black Hole and The North Face Base Camp duffels. At each end of the bag are two zippered pockets: one bigger one at the "bottom" end of the bag (when worn as a backpack—more on that later) for shoes to keep them away from clothes, and another at the "top" end of the bag for stashing books, toiletries, or other stuff you need to get to quickly. The horseshoe pocket is perfect: the bag keeps its shape when empty and opens wide for easy packing. There are also two zippered mesh pockets on the lid for storing little items, which is a great addition. In short: lots of organization options, tons of storage.
One thing that really sets this bag apart from its competitors are the backpack straps. Unlike the Patagonia and The North Face duffels, where backpack straps feel like an afterthought, the Mystery Ranch team clearly led with that feature, because the straps are crazy-comfortable and the bag carries really nicely on your back, especially if you pack it intelligently and put the heavy stuff close to your back.
If you need a travel companion that absolutely will not let you down, this is it.
