Great Value Duffle

Just as good as my daughter's brand name equivalent (TNF), but at a fraction of the price!

Best carry on bag ever!

I’ve owned the original version of this bag with the orange quecha on the side for over 2 years now. It’s been my carry on bag for flying since I got it (at least 8 trips), my festival bag (4), and I’ve taken it car camping for over 2 weeks at a time twice so this thing has been through the ringer yet somehow still looks practically new...apart from a little festival glitter here and there. My bad. The detachable backpack straps are super handy but not the most comfortable after prolonged carrying so if you are looking for an actual backpacking bag get something else. But having the straps means I can run though the airport with my hands free and basically prance about any city with no worries. Also love that the zip to get into the bag is flat against my back in backpack mode so there’s no chance of anything getting stolen. When storing the bag folds down fairly small and neatly. Cannot fault the price point for this bag at all. If you’re looking for an all rounder that will stand the test of time, I’d totally recommend this one!

It's a good bag.

I bought this as a sports bag for hockey kit as my son has a big bag of this style and it looks waterproof. (A lot of sports bags are made from very thin weak looking fabric.) This bag has thick material and strong wide webbing handles and reinforcement. It's the right size, easily holding hockey shoes, shin guards and change of clothes. Access to the contents is good having a large opening (and not a single linear zip). 3 inside zipping mesh pockets so things can be kept accessible, a large one inside the top flap and one each end. I took off the shoulder straps as only using it as a sports bag and have put them in the outer pocket. They would be good if using the bag as luggage when travelling. The buckles for attaching them to the bag do get in the way of the zip a bit, probably as the bag is not full of things. If I end up using it as a sports bag only I might cut them off. The double zip has big teeth with big pulls which move easily and a contrasting string to see where they are under the zip covering flap. The holdall handles are quite long, usually requiring a bit of untwisting when picking up the bag. Not a big problem, It still works if they're twisted. The end handles are good also. If you need an outdoor sports bag add this to your basket now, while they still make them!

Amazing bag and amazing value

I love this bag. I know you shouldn't love bags, but I really do love this one. It's the perfect size for me (I am a 5'2" female and often bags are far too big for me), has extremely handy detachable straps, and is comfortable to either carry on my back or by hand. All for £25!! This bag has already made 2 trips abroad with me and still looks as good as new, and I look forward to using it again this year. 5 stars!


A flat bottom would be better in my opinion

Sturdy bag compatible with budget airlines

I bought this bag so I could have a bag for budget airlines but bigger than most standard cabin bags (they always let you off with flexible bags so you can pack more). Very sturdy, 3 inner mesh pockets and one outer, can be used as a backpack as well, but I haven't tried it yet. It can be folded down to a decent size as well when not used.

Amazing bag for women!

I rarely leave reviews but this bag deserved it! I never travel light so was nervous when told we only had hand luggage. After finding this bag reviewed on The Telegraph I purchased. I was not disappointed! It seems to just fit everything in nicely. Taking it to Tenerife end of the month! Plane safe!

A versatile bag for w/e or airline hand luggage

Saw this reviewed in the i paper, good general purpose bag.

Great for weekends

Bought this for it being close to maximum for cabin baggage, and it's a great bit of kit. seems to just swallow everything needed for a full weekend away in Europe.

Excellent bag

Great bag! Small enough for carryon, and we fit 2weeks of luggage in it using a compression bag with lots of space for souvenirs. The surface finish scuffs a bit easily which is why it didn't get 5*, but for me it makes it look travelled and well used.

The bag we can't do without!

We've similar bags from other brands but Decathlon's version takes just as much abuse and there's just the right configuration of pockets and straps. We have one each in our family and take them on sleepovers, to hotels and the caravan and camping trips - perfect!

Backpack technical tests.

We carry out lab tests to validate all elements: fabric, buckles, straps, foam and zippers.For example,for fabric:resistance to abrasion & tearing,colorfastness in UV light,resistance to washing,waterproofing, etc. Then, a test is conducted on the finished product replicating the accelerated demands on the backpack over a number of years to check the strength of the assemblies. The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy that reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles

How is backpack volume measured?

The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardized method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty the balls into a graduated container that gives us the equivalent number of liters.



Product testing

At DECATHLON, our products are tested by a panel of users in the use conditions for which they were designed. At FORCLAZ, these tests are organized on the mountains, led by a team of engineers from our design center, who are responsible for this mission. Our product managers, engineers and the entire team use the results of these tests to develop and create technical products to ensure the satisfaction of our customers

Storage instructions

Store in a dry and dark place for long-term storage

Care instructions

To ensure materials retain their properties (especially waterproofing), we recommend you do not machine wash, tumble dry, dry-clean, or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if needed. After a few years of use, you should renew the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.
