Why We Love It
Rugged fabrics. Reliable zippers. Reinforced base. We designed our duffles to hold up, no matter what. And then we tested them in our own labs to confirm it. With over 5.5 million sold and thousands of 5-star reviews, they’re the duffles customers everywhere trust to go the distance. As one customer from WA put it, “This bag has received the roughest handling that can possibly be thrown at a bag and has remained virtually unscathed.”
- Solid colors made of 420-denier nylon with water-resistant polyurethane coating.
- Prints made of 600-denier polyester with water-resistant polyurethane coating.
- Reinforced nylon bottom.
- Extra-long zipper for easy access.
- Includes cinch straps.
- Handle wrap and a padded Comfort-Carry strap are easy on hands and shoulders.
- Water resistance was tested at 120 PSI for 60 seconds – the same force as a commercial fire hose.
- Abrasion-resistant fabric surpassed all duffle fabrics tested in the lab by 40%.
- Backing was tested for 24 hours in our deep freeze with no signs of cracking, flaking or peeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suse2115 from medium duffle my biggest challenge by far was figuring out what size to order. so let me say straight off that i got the medium duffle and was able to pack 6 mens size medium sweatshirts in it easily. i could have gotten one more in it at least if i'd really tried. this does work out to be the size i was looking for. i agree with some others that it seems a bit thinner than i expected and the yellow is a little more shiny and neon than i expected. i got it for my son thinking i'm tired of buying everything in navy and forest green and i'm pretty sure he's going to hate the color. if so, i can live with it as i wouldn't mind keeping it for myself :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by chocolateismyfriend from Nice construction, but some hints on colors Overall, a typical sturdy, high quality LL bean bag. However, some problems. We ordered Navy fabric, but it is SO extremely dark, it looks like black. Then, to compound the problem, we were not given a choice on the color of the monogramming thread, so you CAN NOT see the black monogrammed initials on the dark navy fabric. I learned, after the fact, that when you order monogramming online, it will only allow you to select black thread. But, if you call to place your order, you are given a choice in thread color. PLEASE update your website with that info!!! I just wasted the money on the invisible monogramming. Bag is a 5 stars; monogramming & color is a 1 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luckytotravel from Best bag ever! We have owned 2 of these bags for 7 years, with a 3rd purchased last year. We have logged around 100,000 miles with our first 2, including some rough duty in Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, and most recently Peru. They are really great travel bags. We have had no issues with zippers, handles, wheels or rips. These bags have been loaded, unloaded, stuffed, crammed, tossed, thrown, and smooshed - only to come home again and again in one piece. The medium is a perfect size for a 2 week trip - with efficient packing. We also have a large, but fully packed, it becomes a bit cumbersome - which is why we ended up buying a 3rd medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmylou12 from Durable This is an extremely durable bag, I do not usually check a bag when I go on a trip, instead I cram everything into my carry on, this makes for a heavy bag as it is usually a week long trip. Therefore being so heavy, and me being lazy I resort to dragging it as I did non get the wheeled one in an effort to save weight and space in the overhead compartments (big mistake). Regardless, my bag has been dragged throughout many airports around the country and through the streets of Chicago and also through many camping trips but thanks to its black bottom it doesn't look filthy (I got the pink one) and there isn't a single tear on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveMyDuffel from 15 years and counting I got this bag when I was 8 years old. I'm now 23. The bag is in pristine condition, and its not because I've been even remotely light on it. It has gone everywhere I've gone over the past 15 years, which is 30 states and 3 continents. My friends make fun of me for using the same bag on every trip I take because it doesn't make sense that the same bag could be the right size for all occasions... It is. It's like Mary Poppins' bag. It's designed really well so that even when you stuff it to the gills with dirty laundry (college!) it somehow doesn't become too hard to carry on your shoulder. Think long and hard about what color you want when you buy it... You're buying a lifelong companion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HulaPanda from love but could use an inner pocket I just got done road-testing this on a vacation. It wears well and is really functional for air travel. The zippered outer pocket saved my life. I was able to keep my ID, phone, and keys in an easy to get to but secure place. Also, I found the padded strap to be very comfortable and helpful when I wanted to wear the bag crossbody. My only quibble is that for a bag with so much to offer on its exterior, it is so formless and devoid of function on the inside. I wish the interior had an added zippered pocket and one of those rings that you can clip your keys to. But I do appreciate that none of the features for the bigger versions were left off the smallest version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by onthemovemom626 from Great all around bag A few years ago we bought a medium one for everyone in our house. We have used them for checked as well as carry on luggage. They have been on school trips with our sons and are rarely left at home when we go away. We frequently use an airline with a 14kg checked bag weight restriction, my traditional suitcase weighs 1/3 of this empty. After a complete workout they have come out ahead of our more expensive traditional luggage. They are lightweight, durable and the colours make them easy to spot on luggage carrousels. With careful packing I can fit clothes for a week in the medium, the large works well for longer trips and the small makes a great PE bag for my son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Breakonthrough from even better than expected This has been my best LL Bean purchase. I use it all the time going to the gym or overnighting. Perfect size for what I want. It's just an all-around awesome bag I'll be using daily. Highly recommended. * The material seems to be very durable * I got the red one, and it's a deep red, not too bright * Colors didn't fade or run after being in the rain * It's really quite roomy for a "small" size * It hasn't lost its shape * Zippers are smooth and it's easy to open and close * The strap is padded around the shoulder and carrying heavy or light loads is a breeze * Best of all, the inside bottom has a rubber-like coating--quite handy if you're carrying smelly, sweaty gym clothes.
