Great bag with a few misses…
Love the update to the old duffle! But it feels like some choices were made for aesthetics or for some reason unknown…I’ll start with the bad for my review.
The old bag could expand which was so handy for packing! You could jam it full to maximize your carry on (the only way I travel) and then by removing the air under compression you could cut the size down back to the right fit. The old hooks were also great for hanging the bag to dry after taking surf gear back from the beach. Also the angled entry is kind of annoying and the pockets could be a touch bigger.
Now the good stuff! Great quality, plenty of small pockets for fin keys, charging cables and wax. Zippers feel less likely to corrode through time (let’s see). Amazing capacity, updated straps are way better than old ones!
Overall I like the bag, just wish they hadn’t binned many of the things I’d grown to love about the older model.
