What exactly is a duffel bag?

Duffel bags are cylindrically shaped sports and travel bags. Many models lie on their long side and have side handles for transportation. An additionally supplied strap functions as a shoulder strap. Other models on the other hand have two separate straps allowing you to comfortably wear the duffel bag on your back like a backpack. A wet compartment is often integrated for you to store your swimwear and other damp or wet clothes. Additional side pockets provide room for storing valuables and smaller sport and travel utensils. Duffel bags can be compared to a large travel bag. With a wide variety of colours and models available you'll be sure to find the perfect duffel bag.

What sizes and features do duffel bags come with?

Depending on the sport you may need more or less room for your utensils or equipment. For gym training you probably don't need as much storage room compared to ice hockey or football. A small bag will often suffice for gym training. For short trips or sporty weekend breaks you should opt for a larger travel bag.
The size of a small travel bag ranges from 30 litres up to an XXL travel bag of 120 litres. Small duffel bags are ideal for short trips or a weekend break. These smaller bags are also suitable for gyms. You can also use a waterproof travel bag to protect the contents of your bag in bad weather. With large 90-litre travel bags you can do longer trips or sports requiring much more storage space With this size you'll have plenty of room for clothes, sports gear and food.
If you want to take a duffel bag with you on a flight, you'll need to check it in like a suitcase. The dimensions of large travel bags mostly exceed the size permitted for hand luggage. Duffel bags also have a relatively low net weight. This allows them to be easily stowed in cars or on trains.

What materials are best for duffel bags?

Material is a key factor for choosing the right duffel bag. If you are looking for a travel and sports bag in one, you should consider durability, capacity and stability. There are a variety of materials available to choose from. These include cotton, polyester, leather and different tarpaulin materials. These can easily be cleaned wet. Not all of these materials are waterproof. You should consider the sport that you will use the bag for.
