History

The term “duffel bag” comes from the Belgian town of Duffel, a place where the thick cloth used in the first namesake cylindrical originated. The very first duffel bags appeared in the 17th century, with the first mention of the term occurring in 1677. Today, the term refers to more than just those cylindrical, open-top bags; many types of gym bags and luggage now fall under the generic “duffel bag” term.

Finding the right duffel bag

Many important factors come into play when choosing the right duffel bag. You need to consider things like material, capacity, size, and more, looking for the bag that best suits your needs. Let’s take a look at some of those factors more in depth.

  • Materials

    The material a duffel bag is made of indicates durability, as well as weight, the potential for waterproofing, and more. Materials can vary greatly between brands and styles, so be sure to research which material is best for you.

  • Capacity/size

    The actual storage capacity of the bag you have in mind plays a huge role in understanding what situations a bag is best used in. Large duffel bags can hold many items, but are not suitable for use as carry-on baggage on an airplane, for example.

    Here are some guidelines to give you a sense of duffel bag sizes, and what types of uses the bags may have:

    • Small duffel bags, 10-20 liters: ideal for an overnight trip or for use as an underseat carry-on on an airplane.
    • Medium duffel bags, 30-50 liters: ideal for a weekend trip. This group includes larger carry-on options and gym bags.
    • Large duffel bags, 50-75 liters: best for a week-long trip that could also require more equipment for various outdoor activities like climbing or hiking.
    • Extra-large duffel bags, 75 liters-100 liters: for the most adventurous of excursions that can last multiple weeks.

Remember, these are basic guidelines and sizes can vary based on many factors. Be sure to do research, and compare bags to find the perfect bag for you.
