Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL (2014)

It’s all very well having a vast 128 litre capacity, but how do you lug around all that resulting weight? The Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL – a hybrid design – has found a way: it takes the lightweight simplicity of a bare duffel and fits a sturdy pair of wheels around a reinforced bottom. The result is a great compromise between size and practicality. Elsewhere it’s all up to standard – single shoulder strap, stormflaps, joinable side handles and big end haul handles – all wrapped up in durable and water-resistant Bi-Tech material. A nice touch is the addition of its own storage bag, which doubles as an internal stuff pouch when not in use. If you need a bag that handles air travel as well as it tackles expedition life, then look no further than the Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL.
