Well Made Bag

First thing to know is this Marmot bag did not give off any stinky plastic off-gassing smell when it arrived - unlike another bag I had to return. I originally ordered both the small & the medium Marmot Long Hauler Duffel Bags in the Slate/Black color which has a little orange trim when you open the bag. I ended up returning these, but re-ordered the same medium bag in a different color (I'm a girl) along with a Timbuk-2 bag made for women which measured out smaller than the Marmot small duffel since the Marmot small duffle in the color I chose was sold out. I would say the small bag is bigger than you'd expect it to be, although not too big and that with the side handles that seem quite sturdy, you would probably use the bag a lot without the somewhat weighty shoulder strap. The smalll & medium bags in the Marmot Long Hauler Duffel had the same great well made features including a zip outside pocket on one end and a good size zippered pocket inside. It also features double zippers which is fantastic & would give a peace of mind on any potential zipper problems. I "measured" the small & medium bags by stuffing good size blanket throws inside each one. The small held 3 blankets with spare room for pair of pants, socks, possibly more. The medium would hold minimum 4 if not 5 throw blankets, with additional space for pair of jeans, etc. Quite roomy bags.
