Miles the Duffel 40L from Millican is a sturdy little companion for travel (so long as you don’t have to walk long distances with your bag!).
- Tons of space — 40L is a lot of liters when it’s just a simple, durable fabric that’s holding all your gear in.
- Simple, durable & stylish aesthetic — looks classic, feels classic, but definitely also feels modern and thoughtfully executed. The materials are all very sustainable AND durable, the clips and components all feel great.
- I worry about these straps — for longer term travel, these straps worry me. They are surprisingly not that uncomfortable in my testing of it (as long as you have clothing between you and the strap; also the back panel has so much nice padding), but I worry about committing myself to a strap like this on a long haul.
- This thing would basically be perfect as a simple, roomy, durable bag for car travel.
Other Bags to Check Out:

The 50L duffel from Aasgard is a very exciting idea — massive space in a weatherproof simple duffel with backpack straps. (The shoulder straps could use an update though.)
The ATD1 is an expandable backpack you can use for both travel and daily carry. Looks pretty damn good too. One of the best in this category for sure.
The Headway MLC (Maximum Legal Carry-on) from Patagonia is a very functional gear bag that works better as a duffel due to it's uncomfortable (but hideable!) backpack straps.
A medium-large sized travel bag with sturdy, rigid outer material, a couple external pockets and a removable internal divider that makes for actually a pretty interesting way of accessing things in transit.
