The Viken from YNOT is as simple and sturdy a duffel as a modern urbanite could ask for. And it expands. Just lovely.
- Beautiful materials — I love the waxed canvas and water-resistant zippers.
- Tons of space — I can’t believe how much room there is in this sucker! Shrinks + expands to fit whatever you need.
- No backpack straps — I really wish there was a better hands-free way to carry this sucker than the single over-the-shoulder strap.
- My favorite duffel bag? — attractive as heck, functional as heck, dope-ass materials… I like this sucker a lot.
Other Bags to Check Out:
The Wilderness Rucksack from Tanner Goods is a gorgeous, artisan, hand-shucked heirloom bag that your grandpa would be proud of (whichever one of your grandpas was more badass).
The Farpoint and Fairview 40L travel packs from Osprey are solid one bag travel bags with a little less thrills than other bags in similar sizes.
The Stor backpack from Trakke is a lovely 30L pack for travel and gear moving.
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.
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.
