Outdoor Adventures Giveaway - High Sierra Sport Company



When the campground is open, we spend every weekend there. It seems like I am forever packing and unpacking. The fact that we don't have a lot of extra room in our camper means that I have to pack as much as I can in as little as I can.


The 30-Inch Wheeled Cargo Duffel I received from High Sierra has been a relief from angst when packing. Roomy doesn't even begin to describe it. Although the duffel itself is somewhat large, it packs so much that I don't need to take a lot of other luggage with me. I am able to put my belongings in it, as well as my husband's and two sons. That's four people's worth of stuff packed into one bag.

My teenage daughter has been staying in college dorms over the summer and taking week-long classes. During the week, she uses this duffel and packs all of her personal property in it. Once she comes home with it, she empties it out and I immediately put it to use for our weekend camping trips. I tried to get by on handing down our older luggage to her, but she insists that this bag holds much more of her stuff and she likes how easily she is able to carry it.

There are quite a few compartments inside the bag to hold little items. I didn't notice it until just the other day but there's also a lining that can be rolled out to separate the duffel into two main components. There are three ways that this duffel can be carried. One is by the handles and carrying it like a bag. Another is by lifting up the aluminum handle and rolling it on the ground. And yet another way is backpack style. There is a place on the bag that you unzip and there are backpack straps to lug it on your back. The majority of the time I carry it by the aluminum handle and let it roll on wheels.


As you can see, the duffel carries a lot of things. This picture was on a light load day. Usually our bag is stuffed full on both sides. It is made of Duraweave and Metallic Mini-Weave fabric for superior durability.


High Sierra has been in business for over thirty years. They are committed to producing thoughtfully innovative bags and luggage that appeal to the intelligence and esteem of the active lifestyle and outdoor consumer. They are the official supplier of bags to the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding teams.
