    Comments about Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Duffel Small:

    When I travel I use one 22" or 25" checkable roller bag, a small backpack for my ETT (Essential Traveling Toys) that goes under the seat, and "something else" for my second carry-on.

    This bag has proven to be the near-perfect "something else". Durable fabric, slides onto the roller's handle, and compactly fits into the included small sack when not being used. (That carry sack is great when you get to your destination -- or even at home -- as a lunch sack, organizer, etc.)

    The No Matter What ends up in the overhead to hold things I don't want to check, but don't usually need in-flight (but might need in the terminal). To provide a little extra protection and help the bag hold shape, I cut a piece of closed-cell sleeping mat (from my dwindling stash of Ensolite) to fit the bottom and go a little bit up the sides. Camera bag, chargers, cords, adapters, and similar items go in the bag, with a small laptop in a sleeve is usually the top item. The laptop comes out at security and I can also pull it out for in-flight use when I get to my seat. Clunky items (like a tabletop tripod) go in the small carry sack (which is itself quite substantial) for a bit of extra protection. The cinch straps holds things together when you need to get it into a small space, such as the regional overhead bins.

    This bag has worked very well for international and domestic air travel, and also for those shorter trips in the car.

    This was for my cheap, long weekend, AllegiantAir winter getaways to the Florida coasts. Inspired by that airline's carry-ons cost extra policy, I can stuff this beauty seam to seam full. It accommodates all my 4 day tropical vacation needs, and still happily fits SIDEWAYS under the seat. I am delighted. Highly recommended.


    The Price Is Truly A Bargain For Quality

    Comments about Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Duffel Small:

    This is an amazing duffel. Honestly...I can't stop looking at it. Another reviewer said it looked like something Jack Bauer would pick up from the airport. That sounded cheesy until I actually saw this thing. It is VERY HIGH QUALITY. I'm not sure if I can convey this in words. I live in a third world country and travel frequently. I ruined a cheap duffel in a matter of weeks. This Eagle Creek duffel is clearly designed to last. As in "every single detail has been thought out and designed to hold up under demanding conditions for a long time." That sounds like a product ad, but it's not. Down to the zippers I am in love with this duffel. It has the quality of an overpriced North Face or similar at a mere fraction of the cost. If you order this duffel, you will not be disappointed! I was somewhat anxious about spending money sight unseen, but this is clearly designed for abuse. I anticipate it holding up many years, and the price is truly a bargain for the utmost quality that you receive. I bought a small and a medium, and plan to buy a large and an extra large just because. If you are on the fence about this bag, DO IT!!!


    Excellent Product.

    Well made construction, touch little number. It seems small, but can accommodate quite a lot. Overall a good weekend/overnighter/carry on bag.
    In addition, with a lifetime warranty and good customer service when there is a problem, an excellent product.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Their products have a lifetime warranty and good customer service experience when there is a problem.


    Don't Think We'll Need the Warranty

    Comments about Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Duffel Small:

    Bought this bag to absorb shopping overload during a business trip to Asia. I take it with me ever since. Doesn't take much space when folded. Survived rough treatments in airports, taxis, business and holiday trips and still looks brand new after 6 months of daily usage. I just wonder if I will ever need to replace it one day.

    I bought this bag at the suggestion of a friend when I was going to Honduras over the summer.It ended up being a lifesaver. It was easy to carry and fit everything that was needed for up to 3 days worth of clothing and other materials.It's also super tough and it's stuff sack is versatile as well.I can't wait to take it on my volcano tour of Guatemala!!!!

    I have 3 different sizes of your ES Cargo Duffle; Small, Medium, and Large. All 3 are built rugged and can take a lot of rough handling. I purchased the small size first and like it so well that bought the other 2 sizes for when I need more capicity. Keep up the good work Eagle Creek.
