The Aer Duffel Pack is not the tool for every job, but for particular uses it just might be perfect for you.
If you need to carry quite a bit with you in daily carry, but want to have a kind of “sleeker” looking bag, this could be what you’ve been waiting for.
There’s plenty of room for lots of stuff in the main compartment. I will say that the midline zipper kind of limits your ability to get big items in and out of that compartment very comfortably (thinking of textbooks and stuff like that).
This bag also has a built in shoe pocket, so if you carry work shoes with you as you bike to work, or gym shoes for the workout after, this pocket can come in handy.
The materials are solid, and it’s a comfortable bag to carry around.
Not my favorite looking bag, but if you need the size, like I said, it might do a killer job for what you need.
