This summer is the summer of weekend road trips. And if you aren't already planning out a full calendar of weekend adventure jaunts close to home, now is the time to start. Think of them as microadvenutres, a term coined by Alastair Humphreys back in 2015. Whether it's an off-the-grid car camping excursion, a quick weekend away in the mountains, a trip to the beach or simply a drive on some of America’s greatest roads, microadventures can be a great way to get outdoors and break up the monotony of everyday life.

The gear for each microadventure you undertake will be unique to that trip, but the bag that you pack it all in should be a constant. The best bag for the job is a rugged duffle designed to go anywhere with understated styling — like YETI's Crossroads. To learn more about what makes it great for your next microadventure, read on below.

YETI CROSSROADS DUFFLE

As its name suggests, the YETI Crossroads 40L duffle bag is the perfect companion for a weekend road trip. Like YETI's other products, the Crossroads is packed with features. Perhaps the most notable upgrade over your standard rugged duffle bag is the foam-lined base and sidewalls. This gives the bag its shape, and prevents it from folding in on itself when packing or unpacking. It sounds simple, but it provides so much utility and helps prevent you from having to dig around for smaller items. In addition, the bag is also fitted with modular compression straps that can be used inside or outside the bag, two interior divider panels for organization and two interior magnetic stash pockets. And if you happen to get it dirty, it's designed for that, too — it easily cleans up with a little bit of soap and water. Pack up your gear, toss the Crossroads in your car and hit the open road.
