A man was born a traveler – moving from one place to another, exploring the different realms of this planet and resign with a satisfaction of having seeing as much of this amazing planet. Travel has never been about just being a tourist. Every journey that we take has a purpose, be it about doing things we have always wanted for ourselves or extending our business to a different part of the globe. Traveling today is more about fun but it is truly defined by the luggage you carry along but what carries your luggage?

I had always been inspired by the way travelers organize themselves on their journeys. If you have seen the movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”, just pause on to the part where Walter rides his longboard across Iceland with just a small rope bag on his bag. I have always wanted to have one of those! Well, not all of us travel with so less luggage. A perfect alternative seems to be a duffel bag that is easy enough to be strapped at your back or dragged smoothly through. A duffel bag makes for a perfect vacation and for any kind of adventure, be it business or pleasure! So, what makes a duffel bag so convenient and recommendable?

Organize with ease
The first duffel bags were nothing but rugged containers where you can put everything in one place and head out in an instant. Modern day duffel bags give you more options. You have compartments to separate the kind of things your carry; you have wheels to drag them along, and you can always accommodate them in any space. They are flexible enough to be pushed into your overhead bins!
Not all of us are experienced packers and most of us don’t have the time to fold our things perfectly and put it in place before we catch that morning flight. The best carry on duffel bags allow you to just dump the things you need on the trip and not worry about it until the time you need them. The idea of packing is basically about putting all your things in one place to be carried and used with ease. Duffel bags meet the purpose just about perfectly!
Lighter to carry
When you are traveling, whatever be the purpose, it’s always good to carry the minimum weight. With suitcases and trolleys, you don’t just have the limitation of rigidity but the containers themselves are quite heavy. On the other hand, duffels are made of lightweight materials and don’t add weight to your travel.
Take them anywhere
You cannot take a suitcase to a bungee jumping vacation and similarly, you cannot take a backpack to a client meeting. It doesn’t fit the purpose. Duffel bags on the other hand match any kind of appointments you may have.
Lastly, duffel bags are also the cheapest alternatives for any traveler. There’s a huge variety of them, they come in a great number of inspiring designs and they are surprisingly affordable!
