If the summer season doesn’t make you want to load up your bags, hit the road and go on an adventure, then you’re doing it wrong. When the time does come to grab your favorite summer gear, we’d suggest loading up the Topo Designs Mountain Duffel for everything you need.
From summer sneakers to stylish tees, a pair of sunglasses, your toiletries (heck, any everyday carry essential you might need), the Mountain Duffel just works. Designed with water-resistant zippers, a padded base and padded panels, it features a large main compartment — again, ample space for your favorite summer sneakers — as well as easy-to-use stowable backpack straps.
It’s likely that you won’t need another bag for weekend trips. And in a no-nonsense black color, it’s the type of bag that’s geared more toward adventure and utility than showing off — that’s just what you should be looking for you to round out your summer gear. – $229
