eBags.com Tip: Just like the rest of the luggage industry, duffel bags have progressed in tune with today's travelers. Today's updated duffels include options like wheels, super-lightweight fabrics and even shelves!
The corner wheeled duffel by Netpack is popular because it is easily maneuverable, sturdy, roomy, and affordable. The High Sierra AT3 is another winner among frequent travelers. It is three bags in one, with a drop-bottom lower compartment with hold-down straps, two zippered mesh pockets and a movable divider for organizing your things.
If you'd rather go without wheels, CalPak, Nike and JanSport each offer sporty duffels that are lightweight and ideal for long weekend trips. KIVA offers another kind of duffel, the gate-mouthed; their version is the “Big Mouth,” which is wide open for ease of packing and unpacking.
