Pros Good pockets for organization and access, lightweight, comfortable to carry as a briefcaseLightweight, comfortable, straps are removable or stowableLightweight, weather resistant, easy-to-remove comfy shoulder straps, nice pockets, easy to load, good lashing optionsLightweight, simple, inexpensiveMore durable and weather resistant than previous version, dual inside pockets, tuck away shoulder strap design
Cons Not quite as weather resistant as other models, not as durable as other contendersNot as durable as others, compression strap buckles get in the wayFitting tight items is a squeeze, durable but not the toughest testedLimited durability, carry options and water resistanceLarger size would be appreciated, shoulders straps could be better, not as durable as we expected
Bottom Line A wallet-friendly price tag and is lightweight to bootLightweight materials and solid construction make this bag a worthy choiceAn incredible contender, the Black Hole falls in between award winners and is exceptionally lightweight and weather resistantIn specific sorts of trips, employing a giant, light, simple duffel bag is most usefulThis sleek contender is weather resistant and was a solid performer across the board
