Everything you wanted or needed in a deployment bag. Large, Roomy, holds everything you need to complete the mission. Plenty of exterior pockets. It holds my full kit, accessories, and extra BDU's. and I still have room to add items if needed. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Hopefully this bag will continue with the Eberlestock quality I have come accustomed to. ]Great bag guys!!!!!!!
I love my Hercules bag. This bag is truly fully mission capable for anything especially the environment. I will definitely share this bag with all my soldiers.
They delivered my Hercules duffle bag to my address at the military base I’m stationed at with no issues, very quick and hassle free. The bag is of exceptional quality and is perfect for my duties.
Tons of space fits everything that I need it to and more. High quality zipper and wheels have me confident this bag will not fall apart at any time.
plenty of room for what i need
I purchased the Hercules travel duffel to replace an aging travel bag that was on its last leg for a further trip, this is largest enough to hold both my and my sons clothes and gear - only down side is getting charged excessive weight fees on the bag . The craftsman’s ship is what I expect from Eberlestock. Highly recommend this travel duffel.
This thing is huge it’s as big as the biggest duffle Cabela’s makes plus the hardcase on the bottom it’ll hold your hunting clothes plus some…the fabric is durable I love the bottom compartment it’s perfect for carrying dirty boots and with divider valuable items that need to be in a safe compartment during airline travel..It’s everything I wanted and then some
Wow! Very Robust. Plenty of storage. Wish I had bought it when it first started ELR shooting.
I'm active duty army assigned to a IBCT in a BSB. Just took this bag on a 9 month deployment. I've used LBT deployment bags prior to this for deployments and long term field problems. I have rucks from Kifaru, mystery ranch, and eberlestock for comparison of quality.
This bag has some good internal organization. When compared to the LBT it has a slightly narrower but deeper profile. This makes it more liable to be top heavy if loaded incorrectly but also generally easier to maneuver around the airport, between lodging areas, and to carry on one's shoulder like a large duffle. I'm a tall big dude and this will take an IOTV with XL plates, side plates, chest rig, belt rig and holster, and helmet with eye/ear pro pro with extra stuff without issue. The pockets are excellent. I found the LBT ones to be slightly too large externally to the point where a variety of systems were packed in each one. The Hercules pockets are excellent with good quality zippers. I believe they are just the right size as its easy to pack in a system in each (IE a fleece and beenie/light gloves in one, soft shell jacket in another etc). The included wet weather fly and the end internal pockets are nice additions. The end pockets are excellent for spare PCs, spare patches, minor things. The lining of the upper portion of the bag is great and lets you velcro in pounches (The mystery ranch ROUS/RATs pouches work great for this). Overall external fabric is tough and relatively water resistant. I also like the well situated document pocket for 1750s.
Now a few gripes. 1. I wish that the fabric between the bottom and top compartment had a zipper. I would much prefer to be able to connect the upper and lower compartment together. Currently the separationleads to dead space between the two locations if you have odd shaped pieces in the bottom area (like an IOTV with plates and side plates) which is necessary to keep the bag not top heavy. This is probably an excellent organization strategy for hunters and range goers who pack their weapons but most soldiers carry theirs on their person so having a larger connectable area makes sense rather than a dedicated weapons case area. My second and larger gripe is the durability of the stitching. One of my two duffles has already had the abrasion resistant portion of hypolon along the top edge come loose. There is a single layer of stitching at this site so if it catches its absolutely ripping. Second, I also have my doubts about the handle durability. I like the rivet however the stitching around the rivet on the sides of the handle appears somewhat flimsy. I absolutely heard a stitch rip in one of these locations while dragging the bag around the base so I'm half expecting it to rip off on the way home. Hopefully not but in my opinion the stiching durability is a significant concern.
It was durable enough for me to deploy with and return, but I don't think I could live out of this bag in the field (that's a super POG thing to say but such is the BSB life where we are typically in roving truck communities with a duffle and a ruck).
So overall a good bag with excellent organization and accessibility, but if the stitching quality fails further I would hesitate to recommend this to other Army folks without that caveat.
Just picked up the Hercules duffel bag and took it on a 3 week road trip through multiple states. Fit everything I wanted to bring in the bag which was a lot of gear and clothes. It was very organized, felt durable and got quite a few compliments. Planning a humanitarian trip which was the reason for the purchase. I’ll drop a review after wrapping that up.
