(INTRO PARAGRAPH 1 GOES HERE)top-quality men’s travel duffel bag is an essential piece of kit If you have plans to head out on the road, take a weekend break or regularly find yourself on short business trips. They’re roomy enough to store all of your basics for traveling, but small enough to pack, grab and go without any fuss.

(INTRO PARAGRAPH 2 GOES HERE)Wherever you’re planning to jet off to in the near future, a well-chosen travel duffel bag designed for men will serve you well on your travels. Whether it’s a certain style you’re looking for or a more practical item, you’ve landed in the right place as we’ll be taking a look at the best of the best of what’s out there when it comes to men’s travel duffels.

(INTRO PARAGRAPH 3 GOES HERE) Before we get down to it and look at some great duffel bags, we feel it is worth highlighting to you some of the important aspects you should be considering and looking at when choosing a duffel bag. There is a lot more involved than just buying the one that meets your budget. You need to think about how you want to carry it, what you want to use it for and the size you will need to accommodate everything you are planning on packing to take with you.

As there are so many different brands out there, it is good to note the duffel bag manufacturers who have a better reputation than others. That being said, you may still be able to find a real bargain that has not been produced by one of the bigger names in the duffel bag market.

Let’s look at each of these aspects in a bit more detail.

(QUESTION 1 GOES HERE )Carrying Options

(QUESTION 1 RESPONSE GOES HERE) Although you will find that most duffel bags follow the same template design, there are a number of different carrying options available. Many bags will have multiple carrying options to choose from, making those trips away all the more convenient.

Backpack straps: Similar to a traditional backpack, these types of bags can be carried on your back. These are great for long stretches of walking to a destination, especially when you need your hands free for more important things (such as navigating!)

Shoulder straps: Again, this kind of strap allows you to just sling the bag over your shoulder and forget about it, rather than relying on your hands. Ideal for the gym, or when you need to access it frequently whilst carrying.

Handles: As you’d imagine, this is the most traditional and universally popular carrying option for bags. Duffel bags will often consist of dual handles that have Velcro or some other kind of fastener that holds them together.

(QUESTION 2 GOES HERE )What Kinds Of Duffel Bags Are There?

(QUESTION 2 RESPONSE GOES HERE)Thanks to a wide range of designers and brands each producing a variety of men’s duffel bags for activities such as traveling, the gym, and outdoor pursuits, there are now a number of different styles and types of bags to choose from, including:

Travel/Casual: As the name suggests, these are for the most casual use and the type you should look for if you need an airline carry-on, or simply one to throw in the back of a car when you go away for the weekend. With so much choice in style, size, price, and color to suit a variety of needs, you’re sure to find what your travel requirements demand.

Gym/Sport: These are not much different from other bags, other than they usually include a lot more waterproofing, particularly on the inside, and often have a separator or special compartment for damp clothes and shoes. Air holes feature heavily and the fabric is often breathable. These are perfect for regular gym goers who want to keep their bag fresh, and for those involved in physical sporting activities.

Outdoor: Duffel travel bags designed for outdoors specifically will have a higher quality and more durable exterior, often consisting of high density waxed canvas or leather. These are ideal for camping trips, or to carry all the necessary gear of your outdoor pursuit such as rock-climbing, skiing or hiking.

Waterproof: There are various ways to describe waterproofing material because not every bag is created equal in this respect. Most bags are waterproofed to a certain extent, but if you are going to be visiting places where there is a high risk of heavy rainfall or prolonged water contact, you need to make sure you buy a suitably water-resistant bag. Whether it’s an Amazon expedition, Monsoon season in India or simply a trip to the Everglades, a solid waterproof bag will have you covered.

(QUESTION 3 GOES HERE)What’s the Best Size to Choose?

(QUESTION 3 RESPONSE GOES HERE)The best duffel bag size you should choose will of course depend on your individual needs and preferences. If it is going to be accompanying you on a long 2-week trip, a small 20-liter bag is not really going to cut it. Whereas if you are only out of town for a night, you’re not going to need an over-sized 120-liter bag.

Think about your current and future needs, how much you will use it compared to the product price, what you’re using now and what’s lacking with it, and what you’re actually going to be putting in it. Also consider airline size restrictions for carry-on luggage, that is if you’re lucky enough to have lots of internal or international air travel on your agenda.
