Mountain Hardwear says:
Lightweight, packable duffel for organizing gear and or bringing home overloads.
Mountain Hardwear's Lightweight Expedition Duffels are available in a variety of sizes so there's something for every trip. Each duffel comes with multiple carrying options thanks to the 2 adjustable straps. It can be worn as a rucksack, over your shoulder as a tote, across the body or just simply carried by the 2 grab handles on the side.
The fabric used is highly durable so can stand up to plenty of scrapes, however it's not padded so you will need to make sure to wrap anything that's breakable or maybe carry it separately. The main zip opens the full length of the bags for easy access and have heavy duty zipper pulls so they're easy to grab, even with gloves on.
There's no internal pockets on these duffels but there is one zippered side pocket for storing the essentials, which then doubles as a storage sack when not in use to save space. Unlike stiff duffels, these pack away easily by simply turning the pocket inside out and stuffing it in.
