Reasons to Buy a Duffle Bag

There are many different bags or suitcases you can use when travelling but often overlooked is the duffle bag. Originally spelled ‘Duffel’, it was named after a town in Belgium where they created the cloth to make them.

They became popular through military use and soon were updated and redesigned for general every day use.

Duffle bags are great because of their versatility. Having a large main compartment is one of their main characteristics and this is useful when you quickly want to pack clothes or equipment. This makes them perfect for travelling as they are easy to quickly access if you need something but can also be stowed away safely with their durable design keeping your belongings intact.

You can also buy duffle bags with wheels on one end. This makes it slightly easier when carrying heavy loads, as the wheels will take some of the weight. They tend to come with a large shoulder strap, again to help you carry it when there is a slightly heavier load.
