Duffel is professional enough for an overnight business trip, small enough to carry on the plane, and practical enough to bring to the gym. The padded and adjustable shoulder strap provides added comfort. The outside pocket on the front is perfect for water bottle or cell phone. The side pockets are great for those last minute items. We travelled with this bag from the USA to Europe stuffing it with all kinds of souvenirs. This bags holds a ton, yet the recycled canvas did not have a spot on it when returned home.
