If you’re familiar with coolers it’s likely that you’re familiar with about the YETI brand. It’s not surprising that the brand entered the market of duffels with an influx. Many models on this list are water-resistant–they can withstand wet ground and the occasional rain shower–but the Panga is fully waterproof. You’ll see this sturdy and submerged duffel on fishing rafts, rafts boats, and basically any place where people require the most extreme quality of protection to their equipment. Made from high-density nylon that has been laminated which feels as rubber, an elongated EVA bottom as well as a waterproof zipper that secures itself in the desired position, this bag is as air-tight and water-proof as you’ll ever find.
Be aware this: the YETI Panga is too big for outdoor use and for serious use for that matter. It is expensive at $350and weighs more than 7 pounds with the 75-litre model, and it has a firm and rubbery feeling. Additionally, YETI branding is strong with logos on both sides as well as a large imprint that extends across its bottom. Overall it’s not the best duffel for easy outdoor adventures however it’s worth it in gold when it comes to an actual waterproof cover for your equipment.
