    I've used this as a weekend carry-on bag but usually as an additional bag when I know I'll be coming home with more than I left with. I have a similar size duffel made with cordura nylon that I was happy with but left it at home one time and needed to buy a new one. I saw this duffel at an outdoor store and was immediately impressed by its sturdiness and the high quality of materials. It's bulletproof. It makes my other duffel look wimpy. There's a price to pay for that sturdiness, tough, and that's in a larger size when compressed. This duffel takes up about one and a half times as much volume as my lighter weight duffel. On the other hand, I now feel reckless having trusted my belongings to airlines with the lighter weight duffel. I'm quite confident that the No Matter What duffel will handle anything the airline gorillas can throw at it. Even though it's a simple single compartment duffel it's well designed and all materials are topnotch. The one feature I've realy come to appreciate is the "back slip panel" that steadies the duffel on the extended handle of a rolling suitcase. This prevents the duffel from sliding off the suitcase. It's a simple but valuable solution. All in all, a great product.

    I use this product as a railroad employee. I am a locomotive engineer, and travel out of town for overnight stays. Compared to the Eagle Creek duffle bag I bought over 15 years ago (great quality), this bag feels cheap. The old bag had thick leather straps with buttons on the bag handle for your hand grip, the new ones are thick vinyl material. The old bag was made of canvas with really thick heavy duty zippers. The new one is made of what feels to be a heavy duty vinyl you might find on a rain jacket. The zippers are half the size in teeth thickness compared to the old one. The last bag lasted over 15 years, and the quality was second to none. I can only hope this bag lasts half as long. I was disappointed upon opening the shipping box. To be fair, the bag hasn't failed me yet, but on first sight, you would probably pass this bag by in a sporting or luggage store. I only bought this bag out of brand loyalty , since the other was so high quality. I hope my loyalties weren't misplaced. Hoping for
    The best.....almost forgot, the shoulder strap that came with it was so uncomfortable with a load of about 10 lbs. I had to buy an after market strap with a thicker shoulder pad and METAL clips for the bags D rings. Eagle Creek of old, please come back.

                I just returned from a 16 day South African Safari. The duffel was perfect for small aircraft (4-6 pax maximum), small boats, jeeps that transferred us to various locations.

                  This is my second bag. We travel internationally a lot, so we carry one 4 wheeler each plus soft duffles as we need.
                  This bag is durable, large enough and small enough to carry on top of domestic carry-on wheeler.
                  I can't travel without it.

                        This is the Beastmaster of duffels! Light to carry but you can pack it to death! Clothes stay nice and organized. Good compression straps. Roomy and easy to access items. Great handles and good zippers. The packability is the star! you will be amazed!
                        Crosses over well to both genders, not too boyish and not butterflies and pink hearts. Takes a beating and bounces back! Love it great bag ,great price! Well made. Only complaint: Would love a few more colors...C"mon Eagle Creek, duffels can be travel fashion forward!! But , I do love the duffel!
