I travel a lot for work and often have to use those tiny regional planes. I recently hurt my back and decided I needed a bag that would easily tuck in under the seat in front of me, to save me having to lift it in to one of the overhead bins. After much deliberation and a million YouTube video reviews later I decided on this bag!!
Best decision I ever made! I can fit so much into his bag, but more on that later. The quality of the bag is brilliant, the zippers are good and strong, the carry straps are well sewn on and don't look or feel likely to come undone or tear away from the bag, the material of the bag is very good - I have an EC guide courier handbag with this material at the bottom so I know how durable the material is because that handbag has been all over the place and still looks like new after a couple of years! the inside of the bag is just a big black hole with no fussy pockets and the small zippered pocket on the outside of the bag is perfect for my passport and a small purse. I live in the UK and a lot of the airlines only allow you to have one carry-on bag and no personal item.
Capacity, well I couldn't believe what I could get in this bag, I do have a tendency to overpack! - I have attached two pictures which show how much I was able to pack for a recent weekend break! The carry bag that comes with this duffel was used to carry a pair of shoes. As the pictures show, I'm a bit of an Eagle Creek fangirl and am now deciding what other goodies I should buy!

I have carted the older version of this duffel all over the globe and it has held up to copious amounts of abuse. While shopping for a newer wheeled bag I thought I would pick up a couple more of these since they are so handy. I am disappointed that the fabric on this newer version appears cheap and stiff. The zippers are also less durable. In fact, half of the locking zipper on the bag I received is completely missing. I will be returning it to the retailer. Please consider going back to the original no-matter-what bag. It was a good thing.

Comments about Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Duffel S:

I do like to carry as little as possible and this folds into its own tote. That being said, it was very small even with pack it system. I may use for books but would have to be flat and could not take advantage of the "convert" to backpack as easily. I will try the middle size one. PS I got this on sale, good price for EC, so will get use, just not as intended

    Comments about Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Duffel S:

    Now I just need to give it a name!

    • Packed it to a very rainy event in the forest recently and it kept my merchandise clean and dry
    • Took it on weekend car trips to see relatives, leaving room in the bag to bring stuff home
    • Had an indoor 8-hour event where I had to change into formalwear on-site. I got dressed and used this bag to store the non-formal things including a smaller bag: 2 shirts, jeans, baselayers, thick hoodie, denim jacket, 1 pair loafers, small backpack. After that, had ONE bag to keep track of, on a day with a million other things to do. Duffel is bright purple, which also means nobody could inconspicuously walk away with it.

    I feel confident stuffing gear in there and throwing it into the back of my partner's old, rusty, abrasive pickup bed without worrying that anything inside will get dirty or gross. So I recently bought one for him too in a less conspicuous color. He will run it through his "man test" by strapping it to the tops of vehicles and taking it into the woods a lot.

    • It is a floppy bag, so if it's not full, it helps to pack things in a bundle shape to help keep structure
    • Cinch straps will secure a jacket or sweatshirt. The cinch straps tend to loosen faster than I'd like though.
    • Grab handle is padded so it's comfortable, but the snaps take a few extra seconds compared to Velcro closure. I know that's a good tradeoff though, considering Velcro doesn't last as long.

        This item is great for overnight sleepovers for my teenager. It is also great to keep things organized as a carry on for the plane. I am amazed at how much stuff one can cram into it!I bought three, one for me and one for each of my kids. I loved it so much I bought one for my husband too!

            Well made. Back panel slips perfectly over luggage handle making this an ideal personal item to take on plane. Sturdy yet light weight. Holds much more than it appears it would. Great bag.

            I bought it to use as a carry on, but even though it's well made it's just too small. I should have bought the medium size - I think that would be perfect.

            This was purchased as a gift, but I liked it enough to get the same for myself. We have purchased many of Eagle Creek selections to compress our travel needs. Therefore, between the international 20 inch flat and this 20 inch duffel, we don't need to check luggage in at the airports when we travel.

              Comments about Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Duffel S:

              The EC Small Duffel holds a surprising amount of stuff, yet weighs so little. With this and a lightweight backpack, I easily carried everything needed for a 7-day airline trip. The size and shape of this bag is ideal; I packed the same stuff in a different soft-sided carry-on and it felt unwieldy. It's great being able to squeeze this duffel into an overhead bin that is too full for a hard-sided, wheeled carry-on.

              With EC Specter packing organizers, I can make the most efficient use of space in this duffel while adding very little weight. The photo below shows all that I fit into this bag: a small garment folder; 1 full-size compression cube; 3 half compression cubes; 2 tube cubes; 1 quarter cube; 1 small sac; an empty compression sac for dirty laundry; and a ziplock bag for gels and liquids. Even with all this, the duffel wasn't quite full.

                  I needed an extra bag for my 4x/month business trips that would accommodate my electronics as well as my purse, and fits well under a seat. This bag is so roomy, but has the great little straps that can pull it down to a compact size. Love it.
