Rated 5 out of 5 by Boston310 Medium Adventure Duffle - Great Travel Item....
I have been using a small Adventure Duffle for a gym bag and have been pleased with it. . A few months ago, I acquired tendonitis at the gym in my right knee and I have to walk with a cane for about a few months. I travel frequently to NYC on Amtrak and I was looking for a bag that was lightweight but could carry a decent amount of clothing for a few days. I have previously purchased luggage from LL Bean that I have had for over 15 years (Wide Mouth Duffle, expandable Gear bag, etc. ) that I still have and use and they have held up well. But traveling with a cane, I wanted a light weight bag, so I purchased the medium Adventure Duffle and am very pleased with it. For one thing, it an carry a lot of clothing and with a reinforced bottom, the bag does not sag. I like the comfort strap as it makes carrying the bag easy on the shoulder. The cross-over straps secure the contents which is good. The bag, like the smaller version, has side handles on each side ....making it very easy to lift to put on an overhead compartment on the train or in the trunk of a car. All in all - it has been a great bag for traveling.

Truth be told, I was expecting thicker fabric. But it was still durable and well-made. If the strap was adjustable, that would be nice. The color, Blue Iris, is shown as a pretty lavender. It arrived a dark purple, which was extremely disappointing. It has plenty of room, and Audrey likes it :)

Honestly, one of the best practical purchases I've ever made. Excellent quality and construction and it actually fits more than you initially expect. Very stylish and would make a great gift for any traveler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by appalachiangirl Great! Just Great!
I have "outfitted" my grown children's families with adventure duffles. Each member in each family has a different color. This makes bag identification so easy. The quality of the bag is just tops. The only problem encountered by one of my children, a broken zipper, was quickly taken care of by customer service. These bags hold so much, and you can always stuff in one more thing. Seams are strong and well stitched. Handles and straps do the job, a big deal since a large bag can be quite heavy when packed full. If you're the kind of person who wants a bag with lots of pockets and partitions, this is not the bag for you. But if you want a strong, well made, dependable bag that can take a beating and come back for more, this is the bag for you!

Really nice, sturdy duffle bag. Great for getaway weekends. Holds a lot. Nice color (green).
One feature that impressed me was the extra little mini straps by the handles that allow you to cinch the bag together in case it isn't completely stuffed. This makes it more compact and not so flopsy. Well thought out piece of equipment.

My son uses this duffle for his track and football gear for high school. It's not huge but big enough for his odds and ends. The bag is well made and durable too. Another great value from LL Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RnwyBny Good bag, poor strap
I've owned two of these bags now and each time, the connection between the strap and the bag has broken. I wish they would make them out of a stronger material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cvgjax Small duffle for travel
The small duffle is a great underseat bag on a plane. Its "mashability" means it's always going to fit. To streamline things, I toss my purse in it as well, so I only have the duffle and my carry-on bag to manage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChickenDog Better than anticipated
I have used a small duffle for a couple of years and wanted a larger bag but still one I could easily take on an airplane. The medium duffle was better than I expected. The depth of the bag was the biggest surprise. The length is very manageable and the depth is really helpful. I was easily able to use for weeklong business travel, including workout gear and dress clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OSUfaninMichigan XL duffle
I ordered this adventure duffel in the XL for my son to put his backpack in for checked luggage. This is a huge bag. Not only did his backpack fit easily, so did a lot of our other gear. These duffels are extremely sturdy and durable, not flimsy at all which some reviewers have stated. I use my small and medium ones all the time.
