Awesome my number one go to duffel! Real head turner!
This duffel isn’t just a duffel bag, with dividers that if processed well enough the body parts will never touch each other! Size matters when they decided to make this bag, and can you say compartments!!!!
Just what I needed for longer hunting trips involving flights.
It's one badass duffel. Great quality
I travel for work and also hunt often. I bought this bag for both as it looks sharp and is very functional. The outside pockets are very accessible. The dividers can be adjusted or removed. Great quality and very durable as per all of my Eberlestock packs. The only con in my opinion is that the bag will not sit upright. I was checking into my hotel and it fell over. A slide out extender near the wheels would be a great addition.
When looking for range bags, the first thing that will catch your attention about this bag is the price -- it is expensive at $160. Most premium range bags (e.g., 5.11, Voodoo Tactical, etc.) usually run around the $100 mark. I can't say whether this one is worth the extra cost over those bags since I don't own those bags and can't compare, but I will say that the Eberlestock range bag is beautifully made using premium materials like ultra-lightweight polycarbonate, 1000 Denier Cordura nylon, and super-smooth, enlarged zippers.
The configurable main compartment is a nice feature. At first, I didn't think I'd use it and considered removing the dividers (they are secured by velcro). However, since the bag came with this feature, I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. While I removed some of the side dividers, I ended up using the center divider and one of the smaller dividers to keep things in place and from rolling about the main compartment.
The side compartments are tapered so that they are wider at the top than at the bottom. They are plenty large enough to hold my ear and eye protection as well as tools and ammunition. The side pockets also have built-in mag pouches and small item organizers that are very useful.
The bottom zippered compartment immediately above the polycarbonate "floor" is great for holding my targets. I use large 11" x 17" EZ2C targets and they slide right in without a hitch. There is plenty of room in that compartment for other things as well.
I have not used the grapple straps to secure items to the bag. My goal in buying this bag was to have a piece of equipment that would hold all of my range gear within the bag itself. I don't plan on using the straps but its nice that they are there in case I need them. They also act as added security since you can't unzip the main compartment without undoing the straps.
On the matter of the polycarbonate bottom, I have to say that it is probably the single most significant feature that distinguishes this bag from the competition. It keeps the bag from sagging in the middle and protects the bag when it is placed on wet or dirty surfaces.
The only negative, aside from price, is that the bag came slightly crushed due to inadequate packaging. The sides of the bag are supported by stiff, plastic liners separating the main compartment from the two side compartments. They keep the bag looking full, as shown in the pictures, whether the bag really is full of gear, or is completely empty. Unfortunately, the liners were doubled over causing the bag to look crushed. I was able to straighten them up pretty well, but for a bag costing $160, you'd think Eberlestock would supply the range bag in a nice cardboard box, as opposed to just a clear vinyl bag. That way, the bag would arrive at the point of use without damage.
For those of you wondering, no the bag is NOT made in China, however it is manufactured in Viet Nam.
If you are willing to pay the cost, I would hazard to say that you'll like/love the bag. It is a quality product, well thought-out in its design, very practical and useful, and made out of first-class materials.
Great wheeled duffle filled with great features!
Would love to do a review but have never received our duffel.
Great features, great construction, great LOB. And like your lady says: it’s just the perfect size for me.
