Great Versatile Luggage
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have a more traditional clam shell style roller bag I use a lot too. However, packing in the two sides of those can be a little limiting depending on what kind of gear you're working with. Having one big open duffel like this is super nice to give you some more flexibility in your packing when needed. Say you're going on a ski trip for example and want to pack a big bulky helmet. That wouldn't really fit nicely in either side of the clam shell style carry on, but will plop down in this thing no problem.
Quality is really great as well, definitely feels nicer to me than the department store style luggage. And as an "outdoor" person I love to support the outdoor brands I like with my luggage purchases.
Can't comment on longevity with this, but my oldest duffel bag from TNF is 8 years and going strong so I am not super concerned.
