Who doesn’t love a good road trip? There’s just something about loading up the car, filling the tank, and setting off on an adventure with the open road and the great outdoors all around you that doesn’t compare to any other type of travel. But, the fun and excitement can turn sour fast if you can’t find essential items you thought you’d packed or have to spend time rummaging around looking for things. It may be the less wild side of an adventure, but it’s definitely the most important, good, efficient packing is the key to a successful road trip. And, that means duffel bags. Here are five reasons duffels are far and away the best bags for road trips.
Unlike traditional luggage which can have a more rigid structure, duffel bags are softer and flexible, which means they’ll fit into whatever space you put them in. That’s good news if you have to squeeze your bag of clothing between your cooler, inflatable kayak, fold-up camp table and stove. In short, they’re very handy for filling every last space in an over-packed car.
