When Robyn Owen and her husband, Mike, set off with a one-way ticket to Kathmandu for a year of travels, “everything (which was quite a lot) fitted inside the XL duffel,” says Robyn. “It luckily didn’t come to that but I think it could have served as a pretty good emergency bivvy bag if I curled up. It is the perfect bag for traveling with lots of gear. Simple and durable.”

No matter what you come up against, the durable laminate ballistic nylon construction will be as dependable as ever.
