Verified Buyer Reviewed by MAL from Alabama on Wednesday, November 12, 2014I ordered this item because it matched the medium Mountain Hardware bag we had purchased earlier. The medium was so big that, when filled to capacity, it was heavy and awkward to deal with. This bag looks to be just about the perfect size for a weekend trip and like the other, seems to be well-made and sturdy.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike W from South Carolina on Wednesday, July 2, 2014I'm a little hard on the rating as the bag is slightly bulky for a 'small' sized bag. And it is small. A little pricey when compared to the Marmot duffel, which I have-its worth looking into that bag (mine's a large). The MNT HRDWR bag is sturdy and has some inside pockets for organizing. The 'wear it like a backpack' feature is nice...it looks too like it's sized as a carry-on. It's a little larger than a gym bag, so keep that in mind.
Reviewed by Berkeley Climber from California on Wednesday, January 29, 2014I have a large North Face base camp duffel and it is perfect for storing and toting gear around. However it is bad at storing clothes and small items because they disappear into it. Simply put, it could us a few more pockets for a single piece of luggage. The mtn hardware bag on the other hand, is perfect for carry-on and can hold all you will need for a weekend or longer. It has two external slim pockets, perfect for tickets, keys, phone, wallet, etc. Additionally the hand straps double as simple backpack straps. The base camp has a separate set of straps for each purpose. Tons of extra nylon to get caught on things... To be fair, neither will be comfortable for any extended carrying. Neither have a waistbelt or other support.
If you are looking for a small overnight duffel with room for more, look no further.
Reviewed by Lazy Climber from Washington State on Friday, November 15, 2013I have these duffles in small, medium and large sizes. The small makes a good day bag or overnight bag, the others have been used to haul climbing gear all over the world. I used the large and medium on a trip to nepal, the large carried climbing gear for two of us. They survived yaks and porters just fine. I like the large opening on top, easy to get stuff in and out. My only complaint is the "backpack" straps, they work OK to hand carry but not so good as a backpack but you would not want to carry one of these things fully loaded as a back pack anyway.
For the STP price you cannot beat them, the other main brands (Patagonia, BD and NF ) have good products but overall these bags are great .
Reviewed by Mountain Hiker from Georgia on Tuesday, October 1, 2013This bag is the perfect size for carry on luggage. The bag is sturdy, very well made, and the small internal pockets provide easy access to items such as keys or sunglasses. I have not used the bag in an expedition setting, but have used it on a couple of business trips. The bag easily held my laptop, enough clothes and personal items for a two-day trip and still slid in the overhead bin without a hitch. The bag is a little small to use in “backpack mode” which is really just a function of its size rather than any design shortcoming. Overall, I really cannot find any design flaws or workmanship issues with this bag. I would highly recommend this bag and believe it is versatile enough to use for business travel and outdoor adventures.

“I can't tell from the picture how the top opens on this duffel. Does the zipper go around the ends so the top flap opens completely exposing the inside, or is it just a single dimension zipper that opens with just a "slit".”
The duffel opens in the middle with two zippers. The opening is a little small but the bag is well made and actually packed alot more than I expected. I also have the Marmot duffel which is a little larger and really packs well. But if the price is right this bag from mnt Hardwear is great.
