Simple strap design

Bag is highest quality materials, zippers rock, plenty of pockets (2 in the main part, 1 mesh in the side pocket). The reason I chose this bag was because of the straps. No other bag, Patagonia, north face, Gregory have Only 2 straps, they All have 4. Basically the other bags have 2 non-removable straps with a Velcro for a handle, and 2 straps that are removable for a backpack/over the shoulder with Velcro. Marmot only has 2 non removable with velcro. they can be used all three ways (backpack, shoulder, and handles). I chose it because I dont want extra straps and have to remove and store them. But there is one CON that I found when I got it.

I velcro them together, loosing the straps all the way and toss the bag over my shoulder. Because the bag is small, it’s never heavy, so it stays tight against my back and doesn’t slide down. The CON is that The short length of the straps mean it can’t dangle by your side. So that’s why it’s gotta go behind you or else it’s right under your armpit which ain’t gunna work. But I prefer it behind me. Backpack mode sucks cuz the straps fall off your shoulders.

It’s nice to have the length to be able to throw it over your shoulder and dangle it by your side. But it’s small so I either hold it in my hands or throw it over my shoulder and slide it behind me and it stays nicely as I walk. That way my hands and front are free and I just forget about it.

That’s my only piece of advice. If I got a bigger duffel i’d Go with a bag with a dedicated shoulder strap bc I might need to dangle it by my side. But I’m glad I got this one over other brands because others are so strap heavy.

Hope this helps.
