Marmot Long Hauler Duffel Bag – Review

One of the most used pieces of gear I own is an exceptional duffle bag from Marmot. I have used this duffle bag on multiple occasions and for various reasons. First and foremost, the Marmot Long Hauler Duffel Bag, at home, is used as a storage for various pieces of mountaineering equipment and gear. I have also used it for transporting my mountaineering equipment from location A to location B, via car, airplane or train. Of course, it can also be used for other purposes too, such as a gym bag.

Marmot built the Long Hauler Duffel Bag tough so you can play it hard on your expeditions. Haul this burly bag up mountainsides, down rivers, and on the sketchiest airplanes you can find—the Long Hauler can take it all. Its laminated shell protects your gear from moisture while the ballistic reinforcements keep wear-and-tear to a minimum. This duffel also features a removable shoulder strap that converts to carry handles, multiple internal pockets for total organization, haul loops, compression straps, and a zippered end pocket for smaller items like your phone, wallet, and snacks.

Nothing beats Marmot’s Long Hauler Duffle Bag transworld hauling capabilities of this ultradurable duffle. Detachable, adjustable carrying handles double as shoulder straps. Water-shedding fabric and design plus integrated lash points and haul loops for roof-rack travel.

    1. This is indeed a great duffle bag, though, if you would like my opinion, is not the best as a backpack. Of course you can use the shoulder straps, but there are many other proper backpacks for overnight hiking adventures.

      You can check the two following one I have reviewed on this blog:
