If you're tired of disposable luggage, or you are known for being tough on your gear, these Tuff Duffels are for you. The stout cargo-tarp material will put up with just about anything, including the neanderthal luggage handlers at O'Hare. These bags don't need to be treated well, and tolerate all sorts of abuse. Just dumped your cocktail or that fresh batch of baby formula on your carry-on? No problem: just wipe it off and head to the gate.
The soft, comfortable handles are made from rolled sections of the two-inch flat webbing that encircles the whole duffel, so there are no loose ends to pull out if you overload the bag. You can stow loose maps, tickets and keys in the handy side pocket, where they're easy to grab one-handed. We've put serious two-way zippers on these Tuff Duffels, and the zipper pulls mate to accept standard TSA travel locks. Plus, there are D-rings at each end of the zipper, ready to accept the snap-hooks of the optional shoulder strap.
If you travel to the sort of places where you can count on the concierge to be gentle with your belongings, maybe you don't really need this bag. If you're more likely to toss it up on the roof of the overloaded, already-departing Guatemalan mini-bus as you dive onboard, then the Tuff Duffel is the perfect choice for you.
