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 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 Aeronaut from Tom Bihn is an excellent duffel/backpack conversion bag with minimal organization and insanely durable materials and construction.
Is this just, like the most quality built affordable carry-on travel backpack? It just might be.
The Setout from Tortuga is one of our highest recommended travel bags because it has tons of capacity and organization and a very comfortable back panel and straps.
