There are a lot of choices when it comes to duffel bags. Canvas or leather, sporty or stylish, and then there’s what color — but in the end what makes a duffel great is its ability to carry and protect all your stuff when you’re on the road.
There’s nothing flashy about the OutDry Duffel; no shiny plastic-like fabric or bright “outdoorsy” colors. But make no mistake, this bag is capable of taking a beating. Mountain Hardwear’s OutDry tech entails a custom-shaped waterproof membrane laminated to the bag’s inner, which seals fabrics and seams all at once. Just to be sure it worked, the brand sealed the bag away in a rain room for 24 hours, so although the fabric may not feel waterproof, rest assured that your stuff will remain dry once inside. The simplistic look won’t draw attention to would-be bag thieves, either.
The OutDry Duffel is currently 20% off at Backcountry and is available in sizes from carry-on to fits-everything-you-own.
