Excellent duffel

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This review is for the prior version of the Large duffel, not the current one: i am a big fan of Patagonia's black hole series, but this bag is amazing in both function and style for its value. First, I love that it comes with its own carry bag. I don't know about you all, but I find it impossible to refold the Patagonia black hole duffel back into its own zippered pocket. Second, the side pocket is roomy and such an important feature to have. Last, the backpack straps are not uncomfortable and sit well on me even when fully packed (I'm 5'3"). I just returned from a 2 week trip from Asia and was so pleased with this bag (had to check the bag due to size, but was flying business so size/weight not a problem). I also have the medium size, which I have yet to use, but am looking forward to doing so.

Ready for Europe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this bag for an upcoming Europe trip, and am already singing its praises after a few domestic airport trips. Conversion from duffel to backpack makes it ready for just about anything.

Durable Duffel with Great Features

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

With all the great options as far as durable and weather resistant duffel bags, it can be difficult to make a choice. I have similar duffels from other brands and what I can say is I love my Marmot Long Haulers. I bought a few in different sizes because I loved the first one I bought so much. I was initially just looking for a smaller duffel that I could keep in my car to hold any active clothes, shoes, etc. that I would need for the day. Whether it was trail running, climbing or mountain biking, I wanted something to hold those active clothes and shoes (possibly smelly haha), instead of everything just being thrown in my car. I ordered the Small size (38L) and it is a perfect size! One thing I like about these duffels compared to others is the outside pocket on the top of the duffel (when wearing it like a backpack). This is a good size to hold a pair of shoes, especially if they are muddy/wet as it is separate from the main compartment. I have size 12 feet and sometimes I can't close the zipper over my shoes when I put them in that top pocket, but with the larger sizes I don't have this problem. Just with the Small size.
I just used the Large size duffel (75L) to travel to Portland for some ski mountaineering on Mount Hood. I was able to fit everything I needed for the trip, except for a couple ice axes and some avy gear which I just threw in with my skis in my ski bag.
Let me know if you have any questions at all : )

Great Upgrade from Last Year

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this to my boyfriend who has the same bag from several years ago. He loves the upgraded straps (the attachment points in prior years model allowed the straps to easily become disconnected from the bag, especially as you slung it over your shoulder) as well as the external side pocket and internal storage pockets. Perfect for a weekend getaway or a carryon. He has the medium (50L)

Looks like a newer version has been released with external compression straps and with two side pockets (finally!). What is the length of the side pocket? Wide enough to fit a pair of running shoes? Thanks.

Hey there Ravindra!

This pack does not have side pockets, I personally had someone go check it out in our warehouse! You can contact me via the information left on this review or hop on our live chat!

What I expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It's everything it said it was. I got the medium which is great for taking to the gym and disc golfing. If it had a complimentary end pocket on the other side to the singular one it currently has I would give it 5 stars.

Great water proofish duffle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Throw this thing in the back of my truck in a rain storm and everything inside stayed dry. This was a great bag for the price and holds all of the essentials nicely. Love it!

Smaller than expected

    I love this duffle. I ordered a medium and a large because I thought I was in between sizes but boy was the medium tiny. I’m sticking with the large but do know the run small. I love the backpack feature (though not the most comfortable backpack) and the cinch straps (which are only available on L and XL models). Perfect travel bag to get your gear to basecamp.

    Just as good as TNF and Patagonia

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Most people go with the TNF and Patagonia duffel bags but you should not leave this one out. It's just as good and maybe better. It has backpack straps just like the others and also POCKETS, which the Patagonia is lacking. I have not used it much so I'm not sure how it will hold up to the elements but it looks like it should work great. But this bag VS others if you want pockets and you want to remain a rectangular shape.

    Favorite long weekend duffel

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought the medium size and it's a perfect two to five day duffel for any kind of travel. It fits comfortably in the overhead bins but is sturdy enough to be checked in as well. The top and sides are really durable and will take a real beating if needed and the interior is laid out for maximum flexibility. The convertable backpack straps have come in handy on all my snowboard trips navigating through airports. The only gripe I have is the exterior bottom of the duffel is not as beefy as the top and I am not sure how long, if at all, it will stay waterproof.

    Great travel bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I ordered two of these for casual travel. I was hesitant between this bag and the Patagonia black hole and decided on this one, I'm glad I did. It is great quality and very spacious, I may purchase another.

    Solid duffel from Marmot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    All around solid duffel bag for an overnight trip or flight back home for a long weekend. Durable exterior, plenty of pockets for storage, and the stashable backpack straps are great!

    Gets the job done, would definitely buy again.

    Quality Duffel

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was a North Face Base Camp Duffel loyalist, but I have been very impressed with this Marmot rig. The thing that really sets it apart in my mind are the comfortable straps and the plethora of pockets.Just a heads up, the sizing on the Marmot bags are significantly smaller than the sizing on the North Face bags. As long as you're comparing capacities, this shouldn't be an issue.

    Perfect travel duffel

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Ive been using this duffel bag for a couple of months now and I have no complaints. It is well made, has plenty of space for a quick road trip, a flight, or even a vacation. I highly recommend this product!

    What size did you get to bring on a flight?

    Camo, Size M

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this mainly as a gym bag to haul all of my boxing stuff... backpack straps & weatherproof were requirements, as I bike 6 miles to get to the gym. But enough about my workout... This bag is BIG, probably right at the limit of what you could fly with as a carryon. Worth mentioning... the backpack straps are actually pretty comfy for me (I'm 5'5") but my boyfriend who is a bit taller with wider shoulders wasn't that stoked on the fit. The main panels are really heavy duty everything-proof material, but the top & bottom are not... I have yet to take it out in the rain to see if moisture gets through.
    Last thing... the description really doesn't do the pockets/organization system justice. Marmot has done a great job of making a lot of them, all easily accessible, and large enough to be useful.

    Overall, great bag for both the gym and for sprinting through an airport because you refuse to show up the recommended two hours early for your flight.

    Almost a great bag

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    There are so many things about this bag that make it a near perfect duffel: its lower weight, ability to consume massive amount of gear, the pocket organization, the efficient carry and compression straps. The fatal flaw for me is the lack of waterproof fabric on the bottom. That fabric is very durable but has an open weave, unlike the bombproof laminate fabric used on the rest of the bag. Unfortunately, I am returning it.

    On the banks of the Little Susitna

    My Marmot Long Haul packed with clothes and food for three days, a sleeping bag, a sleeping pad, a bunch of other miscellaneous junk, and a 3 man tent. Next to it is my small Nike sack pack for my trash.

    Awesome Heavy Duty Duffel

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased this duffel right before I went on a three day canoe trip in Alaska. During the trip, it rained pretty much the entire time, and I put this bag through just about everything the Alaskan wilderness threw at me.

    Let me first start off by saying that this is not a dry bag, and is not supposed to be a dry bag. A lot of people buy this duffel and others similar to it because they are looking for a dry bag to keep all their stuff nice and cozy. If I were rating this as a dry bag I wouldn't praise it so highly. That being said, it does a pretty good job of keeping your stuff dry for being a duffel bag.

    As far as cons go, the only thing that seems sketchy about this bag is the clips on the backpack straps are small and plastic. (That being said, I abused this bag pretty well over the weekend and they held up great).

    As far as pros go, this bag is awesome for pretty much anything and everything except scuba diving. It's perfect for simple traveling with lots of room and compression straps that help the bag pack down nicely. On my canoe trip, I purchased the Large size, 75L, and I was able to pack clothes and food for 3-4 days, stove, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and a tent. It rained every day and my bag was sitting in the bottom of the canoe the entire time. While a little bit of water eventually did seep through the parts of the bag without laminate, for the most part my stuff stayed nice and dry. (All my stuff was in neoprene bags anyway so it didn't matter.) Even though the bag got soaked, it dried out fairly quickly every night. My favorite part about the bag are the carrying handles on each end of the bag, they actually helped tremendously when I was picking it up and moving it around.

    Bottom line, this is the best duffel bag I've owned. This is a very heavy duty duffel bag that you can beat up and not feel bad about, and it's great for traveling in general. 5 stars!

    Awesome Heavy Duty Duffel

    Pretty Great

      I would suggest this one to anybody. I use it just about every day and on several intense trips and still looks like new.
