The Eagle Creek Gear Warrior 29 wheeled duffel is lightweight for its size at just about seven pounds, and extremely durable. With all the different types of travel we do, we need a rugged bag that can handle being tossed about, shoved in the bottom of a boat, jammed in the back of a small plane or helicopter, and still be large enough to tote all the gear for a given adventure.
This duffle performed wonderfully on our latest journey which combined three different adventures. We needed roughing-it clothes, dress-up duds, our own stash of adult beverages, as well as several pounds of coffee. The size was right for the job.
I really liked the wings with compression straps. It made the duffel extremely secure and allowed me to compress all my gear down. Once again, all the grab handles are a plus. This matched my carry-on from Eagle Creek (Load Warrior 22 and XTA Backpack) and makes for a good looking set in my chosen color of Smoky Blue.
The large secondary compartment allowed for ease of access with the two-pocket organization. It was so easy to separate gear from clothes or grab-and-go items. The wheels rolled freely and zippers zipped readily.
This lightweight, well made duffel is a work horse and is a solid part of our travel gear. With any adventure requiring us to travel with more than a carry-on, we will rely on this durable wheeled duffle to get the job done properly and with flair.
