    I've been looking around for a new duffle bag and can't make up my mind. I use an under armor bag for the gym that is perfect size and layout but want a more tacti-cool bag for outside events. A day at the range, fishing piers or sitting on the sideline at a family members game. I like having molle on the bag so I can transfer over my IFAK and other pouches easily and quickly. Also trying to not break the bank. Any thoughts?

    I use a 5.11 Lima as a gym/jiu jitsu bag and it works great. It is spacious (51 liters), condenses, and has big zippers, with a removable mesh pocket inside and a mesh pocket on the inside of the flap. It also has one large pocket on the outside. Only downside is it's flimsy (no rigid foundation) so this is either a plus or minus depending on what you are looking for. If you want a rigid style duffel, then I would advise something else. They also have a Rush LBD which is slightly larger and has a backpack attachment option as well (but is not removable which is why I did not go with that one). It is also flimsy and has regular molle instead of laser cut.

    For some reason I thought this was more of a messenger style. Thanks

    Dam that's nice. Out of my price range for what I'm looking to spend but they look bomb proof! Thanks

    I guess maybe they're out because of the lack of molle /tacticality (is that a word? Haha) but as much as I like tactical bags, the north faces "base camp" duffel is a very bombproof, proven piece of gear. Yes they make lots of stuff that maybe falls into a yuppie wanna be mountain climber genre, but their duffels are the real deal.

    Crap, I'm staying a million miles away from a "duffle bag"!

    I want a pack and/or a small bag. I wouldn't spend more than $5 on a duffle bag. There's so many other carry options out there.

    I hauled one of these things all over the planet once...never again!!!

    Check out 3V Gear's Smuggler duffel. It doesn't have the molle you are wanting but the bag seems very durable so far.

    REI was awesome duffel bags. Pretty big family that travels a lot. They are tough, well built and not tactical.
