Pros & Cons

Reasons to buy:

User Reviews

  • Removable backpack straps for versatile wear.
  • Lots of pockets for increased organization.
  • Includes a waterproof compartment especially for wet clothes or shoes to keep moisture out of the main compartment.
  • The compression straps keep things in place inside the bag, especially when wearing it as a backpack.

Expert Reviews

  • The external zipper that opens to the waterproof compartment is great for separating dirty things from the main body of the bag.
  • A quality bag with the standard features for a good price.
  • Has a u-shaped zipper for easy access to the main pocket.

Reasons NOT to buy:

User Reviews

  • This isn’t the burliest bag on the market and is prone to wear and tear, particularly on airplanes.
  • There are no side-straps on the ends of the duffel.
  • Although users like the internal waterproof compartment, some feel it takes up too much of the bag.

Expert Reviews

  • This bag lacks durability, especially compared to other models at similar prices.
  • Not as weather-resistant as other models as it lacks a waterproof laminate coating.
  • Limited color options and a very conspicuous logo.


The Backcountry All Around 60L Duffel is a versatile duffel suitable for airplane travel, camping, car travel, international backpacking, and everything in between. Users particularly love the gear-separation compartment that can keep dirty clothes or shoes away from the main compartment, and the compression straps that keep gear in place. This duffel does lack a bit in durability and waterproofing, especially compared to bags at similar price points.
