    Let's talk about my sack.

    I guess it could be called a sack or a bag. But really what it boils down to is not having a good place to put my Squatch stuff.

    I'm wondering if any of you fine gents or ladies have a suggestion for a good travel bag? I have luggage (suitcase) already but what I'm really wanting is a good travel bag. Something I can throw my clothes in for an overnight trip or a quick car camping trip. I have been using a plain ol' duffle bag but I'm tired of having to dig through it and remove most of it when I'm looking for socks.

    So what say you PF? Anyone have a suggestion for something that might meet my needs?

    Maxpedition Doppelduffel

    It's a backpack, its a duffle with shoulder sling, it's a one-hander, clamshell for easy access, 1000D nylon, YKK zippers, double stitched and Bartacked.

    Maxpedition makes some crazy tough stuff. You pay for it too. Buy once, cry once.

    Sasq my boy

    By SACK did you mean;

    The act of Tackling a quarterback behind the line of scrimmage?

    Or another word for a Base in baseball?

    Or maybe an alternative term for a Bed?

    Maybe you meant the act of plundering and destroying in Medievel times?

    Or getting dismissed from your job?

    You may have had something else on your mind but for the thread's sake I'll take it you meant some sort of sturdy bag in which to carry clothes and belongings?

    In that case you can't go wrong with what Slippy uses. Cabelas makes a sturdy bag like this one that I've had for a number of years;

    It easily fits enough stuff for a weekend trip. If you need to, you can easily fit a couple of large balls in there as well! Get it?

    I'm a backpack fan. I have carried a cheap get home safe bag with clothes and necessity items back and forth for years. My first bag started to turn to dust it was so old. I recently purchased a new tactical pack and I love it. Many pockets. Carry's multiple ways,

    There are so many great choices out there - find what you like in your price range and rock on! I have bags from Maxpedition, Mystery Ranch, Eberlestock, Camelbak and more but the four I listed are my favorite brands on a consistent basis. Also, if waxed canvas is more your style there's an awesome group of craftsmen out of Thomasville, GA called Sturdy Brothers that make retro/rustic, hard-use bags that are incredible.

    During my long career on merchant ships, I wound up using bags from LLBean in several different configurations. I never wore one out or broke a zipper. Good quality at a reasonable price.

    Bought my first AWOL bag shortly after boot camp, . . . had one ever since.

    Latest one has one central main compartment, . . . two zipped side pockets, . . . two zipped end pockets.

    Looked on pinterest and ebay, . . . could not find the exact example, . . . maybe not made any more.

    But the idea of 5 pockets makes the search for "X" much easier.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    I love this but it is kind of pricey.



    If it was also a backpack, too, I might seriously consider it.

    That guy is not really a minimalist. Really, he travels with his own coffee maker and hair dryer, and calls himself a minimalist?
