Looking to update your dilapidated backpack or need something more adaptable than your traditional suitcase? Travel duffels are among the most versatile luggage options—they come in carry on sizes or larger, some roll while convert into backpacks, and others are weatherproof. The best ones are all of that, and so much more.

When you’re buying luggage for an active escape, you’re already stressed planning your itinerary, so when it comes to finding the best lightweight yet durable travel duffel that boasts sustainable design? Well, sit back and relax; we’ve got you covered.


A Travel Duffel Ready for Any Terrain

Tried and tested, Cargo Hauler Duffels range in size from the compact 40L carry-on, to the wheeled 130L maximum capacity duffel. All sizes are available in five different colors, including the fresh-and-fun Golden State and Cali Hero prints, which are new!

If you’re traveling light, opt for the40L or 60L[1] duffel and benefit from the multiway strap options—this includes traditional backpack straps, a number of grab handles ideal for use when loading, and a shoulder strap for short distances.

For those adventures that require more equipment, the 110L and 130L[2] travel duffels offer the same strap options as the smaller capacity versions, however in addition, they also have oversized treaded wheels for easy off-road rolling when required—coupled with a pull handle constructed of strong oversized webbing, and these larger duffels are a total win for the adventurous traveler.


Our Favorite Cargo Hauler Duffel Features

The Cargo Hauler is a travel duffel bag built for every adventure and comes with clever design features to make your life easier when the going gets tough (even the best trips sometimes face unexpected snafus!). 

Here are our favorite adventure-ready features—each seamlessly integrated into the duffel so it’s there right when you need it most.

●     Backpack straps deploy from a zippered-pocket and attach to D-rings on the top of the duffel, allowing for quick conversion between the carry handle or one of the multiple grab handles, and backpack-carrying for hands-free travel.

●     A storm flap shields the main compartment from the elements (because sometimes it rains  hard  in the tropics!) while #10 lockable TPU-coated zippers and pulls protect your valuables.

●     The padded bottom offers shock absorption, while roof rack lash points and compression straps allow for stress free transit.

●     The U-shaped top lid has reflective finger loop zipper pulls providing access to the main compartment while wearing gloves.

●     Interior and exterior zip pockets, and a detachable mesh divider provide optimum organization.

●     A wide zippered opening makes organizing your duffel a cinch—packing cubes easily slide inside and help you fit a lot, without adding much weight.

●     Many within the Cargo Hauler duffel range (40L, 60L, and 90L) also roll up into one of the external end pockets, offering a space-saving storage option at home and at your destination. The two wheel-only sizes (110L and 130L) compress into a handy storage bag.
