Verified Buyer Reviewed by Phoenix Mountain from California on Monday, November 7, 2016Well made and great for weekend trips.
Reviewed by Davey Crockett from Tennessee, California on Monday, February 8, 2016Extremely well made and excellent quality materials. 1680 denier ballistic nylon? Impeccable workmanship? Dig the inner pocket organization. What's not to love? Well, I'll tell you...
- The water(proof?)-resistant material on the top is great for shielding rain, but puzzled about why the material isn't used on the bottom when you need to set it down in the same wet conditions?
- Awkward top opening. Main compartment zips from back, along the side, then zip-dipping toward the front—all the while trying to avoid the straps in the middle along the way. Ditto for the side pocket zipper, needing to pass underneath a strap.
- Amorphous blobby shape unless packed tight full of something like clothing. Collapses under it's own weight. No reinforced edges to help keep its shape/ support.
- And then, of course, are the straps. Intended for flexible (a) hand carry or (b) backpack or (c) shoulder. The straps are awkward getting in the way of everything, mainly the zippers. The bag is overall just very, er, strappy. The strap design, trying to be all three things, is frankly not very good at any of those three things. Backpack mode—straps fall off your shoulders. Hand carry—it's OK, but too many straps to choose from, needing to connect via Velcro keeper. Shoulder—probably the most stable, and easiest to not mess up from a design standpoint.
Bottom line, I don't want to work that hard to pack, zip, and unzip. Mostly I really don't want to configure complex straps—or avoid straps while zipping and unzipping. Love the materials. Love the inner organization. You may love all the extra time and energy to deal with this bag's ergonomic shortcomings, too. But this one is heading back for exchange.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mr. Ross from San Diego on Monday, October 12, 2015The bag is the right size for Airline carry-on (the small). It is as tough and rugged as any bag but not made in China like the north face bag is. It is as good as any patagonia black hole bag, but 20% less in cost.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by longhuntr74 from North Carolina on Wednesday, February 11, 2015I bought this duffel bag along with its two larger brothers (medium and large). They are all fantastically made of very durable materials, including this version. Here's the rub...this bag is rather small. I planned to replace my gym bag with this one...but it's barely big enough for even a gym bag (I'm military so I tend to require a bit more space for clothes/boots in my gym bag). Because it's so small, the design features (specifically the shoulder straps that are modeled after its larger siblings) seem a bit awkward and unnecessary. I guarantee I will never use this bag in backpack carry configuration, because it's not big enough to put enough weight in it that would require that. As such, I'd prefer it they had modified the design of this particular bag to have a hand carry handle on top, and a standard single shoulder strap (like similar gym bags of this size).
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Joe from Maryland on Thursday, January 22, 2015I use this as my commuting bag. It is tough and handsome, and the 3 pockets hold quite a lot although the internal gray pocket will probably not hold a pair of shoes unless you have tiny feet. The external side pocket has an extra mesh interior zip pocket and will hold a 20 oz+ drink container. It’s definitely water resistant and the zippers seem bomb proof.
I did have a problem with the shoulder straps. I need the straps adjusted to their longest length and one of the straps slipped out and detached from the clip. That wouldn’t do, so I folded the end of all the straps and sewed them together so that they cannot slip out. This means I have to use this strap exclusively as a shoulder strap, but that’s okay. I can always cut the stitches if necessary.
The bag is made in Vietnam and was quite a bargain here on this website.

This bag has some water resistance but is not waterproof.
Do you recommend anything that could do the job. It's for my husband he works oil field they leave their bags in back of trucks coming and going locations. Needs something that will keep his stuff dry if it starts to pour rain. Also noticed this item was a small needs something that could fit a couple of days worth of clothes and accessories.
The Marmot bag is not waterproof. I'd recommend a waterproof dry duffle bag for your husband. For wet conditions like that, II use a few dry bag options, including this one from Seattle Sports http://www.sierratradingpost.com/seattle-sports-roll-top-waterproof-duffel-dry-bag-large~p~2580g/?filterString=s~dry-duffel%2F
