I bought this bag specifically for use as a carry-on. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Although I'm newer to the carry-on game (my family got me into the expensive habit of always checking bags), I'd say this is around maximum carry-on size. I took it for a six day trip to California and it was absolutely perfect. This bag has SO MUCH ROOM. I fit everything I needed plus a book or two, extra shoes, my computer, etc. The material appears to be extremely durable and it would probably take a small dinosaur to tear through it. The backpack straps are sturdy, though I do wish it included a chest strap for extra comfort/support. After walking around LAX for a half hour with this thing full, my shoulders were definitely a bit sore.

Otherwise, I would absolutely recommend this as a perfect long weekend/camping/getaway bag. My boyfriend has a 60L Patagonia Black Hole that he paid a LOT more money for (I paid $48 for this guy) and I think my duffel is just as great. The one picture shows what it looks like/how big it is when you use the shoulder straps. For reference, I am 5'10".

My Burton gym bag (also a 70L) gave up on me this week, or rather the strap did after years of enduring my ridiculous amount of stuff I pack in it – grown men had trouble lifting it and or more than one occasion I was asked if I was stealing dumbbells or an inordinate amount of towels from my local gym. You get the picture – as I go from work to gym it is packed with all I need and then some, I need a strong bag.

I needed something big, easy to use - aka easy accessible pockets and useful straps; something I liked the look of and something that could take all my stuff. I looked at Burton, Ogio and finally settled this bag by Helly Hensen as it was the size I wanted (70L); I liked the bright orange color and the price was a steal as they run over $100 but orange is remarkable cheaper!!

The bag really is huge and the top zips open ¾ of the way around so you have one large section that is easy to pack and unpack; and also you can easily find your stuff when you have so much access. It actually has two interior pockets contrary to the listing which states one : One is on the inside wall of the bag and will hold smaller items like a cell / keys etc. The other runs on the underside of the top and it large and vented, so great to put your clothes in, post workout. There is also an exterior pocket on one side of the bag also of good size.

The bag is very light weight and comes with a little external wash bag. This is great for travel as you can pop it in a suitcase, once it’s safely inside the little wash bag; and it will take up little room /weight, then if you need another bag on your return trip for souvenirs, laundry etc –you are good to go with this and it can be used as another carry on.

It is a great durable polyester /PVC mix which renders it waterproof and you can simply wipe it clean which I love. At first I was worried the material would not hold up under the weight of all my stuff, the same stuff that broke the stitching right out of the Burton bag…but it holds it perfectly with room and weight to spare.

The only thing I did not love initially were the straps - the design is great as you can use it as a backpack if that is your thing, use the hand carry straps or pop it over the shoulder which is my preference, so it took a little bit of reconfiguring to part the carry straps, unlock one carry strap until I had one left which hooks diagonally across the bag -but this also makes the bag easier to manage and the strap is comfortable and does not dig into my shoulder.

All is all, having reached all my options -I am so glad I went with this. Amazing price (just do a price search and you will see), love the material, bright orange color and the fact that this is a huge and most importantly durable bag that I can use daily to haul all my stuff!

I'm a big fan of the earlier Helly Hansen duffle bags (with the shiny textured PVC tarpaulin fabric), so I decided to give the new version a try. The update uses a smoother, matte PVC fabric (similar to other all-weather duffles), and the design is essentially the same - a flap that opens parallel to the length of the duffle, backpack straps that can be stowed inside the flap, one interior mesh pocket, same dimensions, etc. However, the construction doesn't seem as robust as the earlier version - the fabric seems lighter, the straps are definitely less wide and thinner, and the zippers are not as sturdy. On the old version, the outside bottom panel was not PVC coated (although it was coated on the inside), but it was a sturdy nylon with a water-resistant coating. The outside bottom panel on the new version seems to be uncoated nylon or polyester, although the inside bottom still has the PVC coating. While it might keep moisture out of the bag, it looks like the bottom of the duffle will get wet and stay wet.

Helly Hansen makes high quality outdoor equipment, and I'm sure this bag will be adequate for most travel situations, but the construction just seems to be less sturdy than version 1.0. The old version was always a bit heavy, but its over-engineered construction justified the weight - this new version is almost the same weight but with a less robust feel. My advice is to grab one of the older versions while they are still available (not for long)!

This product is as described and held up excellent during my recent trip to Italy. The bag is malleable, sturdy, and well designed. The zippers worked every single time with out any hang up, even when the bag was stuffed to it's maximum capacity. The zipper pocket on the main flap was useful. I managed to fit a JBL Flip 4 speaker, a belt, suspenders, bowtie, various charging cables, and portable battery pack with out any issues. This trip also required me to have a Tux and a suit for a welcome dinner and wedding, I managed to pack both of those, and three pairs of shoes into the bag along with 2 weeks worth of clothes for Italy.

The bag fit into the overhead bins of the international flight I took on British Airways, and none of the flight attendants gave me any issues regarding the size of the bag not being regulation. I fit this and my 40L Backpack into the overhead bin with out issues!

Helly Hansen duffles are nice looking, and made of a very durable synthetic. I mean, nice. I've heard the zipper might not be completely waterproof, but I've had no problems.
A 50L bag is a little too large to use as a gym bag, so I'll also purchase a 30L. These bags are just too nice to send back. Highly recommended. Oh, shoulder straps and stuff, main cover has zippers and velcro that offer up other features.

I already had the 50l version and this was what was required for that shorter trip/less kit required for the gym. Backpack straps are a bonus and work really well (as they do on the 50l) and would not hesitate to recommend this bag.

This feels very good quality & is clearly built to withstand the elements. The hidden rucksack straps are a nice feature easy to take out & put away if they're getting in the way.

As with all good quality bags, it's bigger than it looks inside & you can fit in more than you think.

Haven't sailed a boat since I went on a mark warner when I was 12, but next time I do I'll be bringing this along

Backpack straps
Sleek and minimal design, nothing too flashy

No pocket compartments within the bag besides this weak mesh lining which looks like it could rip over time.
The material is good for the price but it doesn't seem all too strong in my opinion especially the bottom of the bag, generally it would be padded or slightly thicker.

Great looking, elegant, superlight, waterproof and enough liters for a couple of weeks trip. You can perfectly carry on as a bag, although if it is full of stuff can be a bit heavy

Waterproof, lightweight and it looks good. It has a useful side zip section and an inner top mesh zipped section. I use it every time I go sailing. It's a great bag and a worthwhile purchase.
