For climbers who want to take long trips into the more remote mountains, there’s not any better than this Mountain Hardwear Expedition. This duffel was designed for tough work, and features waterproof ballistic nylon that is 840 denier inside the body, and a sturdy base made of foam for the structure as well as protection. Daisy chains that wrap around allow users to use it in an endless variety of configurations, regardless of whether you’re heading to basecamp with the aid of a truck, mule or boat. The Expedition’s most distinctive characteristic is its enormous D-zip opening that is able to expand via wings on either end, and folds completely open for excellent basecamp organization (complete with inside handles that resemble a tote bag).

For a duffel that is so utilitarian The Expedition includes an array of organizing features. There’s a handy internal compression system that will keep all or part of your luggage, along with four zip pockets (two internal and two exterior). We’re all familiar of tying the zipper shut in a duffel that is overflowing Many will appreciate the included top compression strap which holds the sides in a way and lessens strain on the zipper. Also, like many designs this one the Expedition features backpack straps which can also function as a carrying handle through the use of Velcro patches. The style of the product, its large capacities, and cost are likely to turn off people who are not accustomed to it However, for serious expeditions this Mountain Hardwear is a great choice for your needs.
