Duffel Bags

While everyone relies on wheeled suitcases when traveling, I personally adore duffel bags. Between my height disadvantage and the fact that I have almost zero upper body strength, stowing suitcases in overhead bin is not an easy task for me. Duffel bags, on the other hand, have no wheels and no hard parts to add to the weight, and are therefore easy for me to just toss over. They’re also lighter to carry around and can easy be squeezed into small spaces, even the larger ones.

Don’t get me wrong; suitcases have certain advantages too and I understand why lots of people prefer them. In fact, I still sometimes travel with a suitcase. Most of the time though, duffel bags are best for my traveling needs.

If you’re like me or if you simply feel like swapping out your bulky suitcase for a handy duffel, here are five fantastic ones to consider (including two from one of my favorite brands, Bando, that I myself have and use often):
