The Gregory Long Haul Duffels are among the most affordable burly expedition duffel bags on the market. They are also among the more weather-resistant duffels we tested. Long Haul Duffels are simple and don't have many extra features, just one extra pocket and a simple single strait-line zippered opening. This simplicity also gives them the lightest weight in our review. The Long Hauls aren't the most pleasant to carry and lack features that many other duffels in this review offer, but if you are on a budget and need a big sack that won't blow out on you, this is the duffel for you. It is also offered in five sizes, more than any model in the review. The largest size offers the biggest volume we tested.
For this review we only chose duffels we liked and this was the least expensive chosen. In and of itself that's a reason why this duffel should be be considered. Again, we loved the five possible size options offered by Gregory, including the two largest volumes of any duffels in this review. If comfort and ease of packing are higher priorities, then you might want to look somewhere else like The North Face Base Camp Duffel. If you are on a budget and are looking for a good, long-lasting duffel and don't need all the bells and whistles, then the Long Haul along with the Wild Things Mule Duffel are good options. What might set the Gregory apart is a little more water resistance and more and and slightly larger volume options.
