We took our favorite burly travel bags (aka "duffle", but more properly spelled "el" for the town of Duffel in Belgium that first manufactured them) and compared them head-to-head to help you decide which one to take on your next adventure. We tested them while running through airports in Chamonix, dragging them on sleds across the Alaska Range and stashing them in the rain for weeks on end in Patagonia, packing them on mules in the Andes of Bolivia and Argentina. Find out which duffel bags scored the highest, and which will meet your needs the best, by reading below.
Recently we also picked our three favorite rolling duffels and scored them in a similar fashion. While there are literally hundreds of options, we preemptively narrowed it down to only include our tester's favorites'.
