The humble duffle bag is making a stylish travel bag comeback at Anaconda. New arrivals are ongoing, and options abound for all types of travellers who require a spacious holdall compartment for carrying almost anything. Progressive travel accessories and duffle bags are reinforced with superior materials, can be packed in only a minute or two, and are easily stowed in your vehicle, on a plane or anywhere else.
Modern duffle bags bear little resemblance to weighty leather duffle bags, canvas duffle bags and military style travel bags of yesteryear, although durable and rugged materials are still prioritised. Superior duffle bags can include wheels, trendy colours plus additional pockets and pouches for storing all your travel accessories. There are a lot of smart reasons why you should consider a duffle bag as your next travel bag purchase.
WHAT IS A DUFFLE BAG?
Duffle bags are named after Duffel, a Belgium town where coarse, hard-wearing cloth was manufactured in the 17th century. The original duffel bags were large and cylindrical with a drawstring or zipper. Duffle bags were popularised during WWI and continued to improve in sturdiness and function over time, and today 's duffel bags include a wide range of holdall bags made from tough materials. A duffle bag can double as a gym bag, sports bag, or storage bag for travel accessories, and is easily adjusted using a simple shoulder strap harness. Duffle bags aren't the most stylish looking luggage on the market, but just like Ugg Boots, they are here to stay and remain popular with Australians of all styles.
Duffle bags available at Anaconda are functional and ruggedly versatile, from premium manufacturers such as Samsonite, High Sierra and Caribee. Our selection includes men 's duffle bags, women 's duffle bags and kid 's duffle bags in a range of sizes and configurations to suit multiple purposes. Sports duffle bags are ideal for keeping all gear together, while travel bag duffel options include a duffle bag with wheels for convenient manoeuvrability. Here are a few reasons why people choose duffle bags from Anaconda.
- Organisational options: You will be surprised at how convenient a duffle bag is to pack. The large cavity provides more space to manoeuvre and shape sleeping bags, jumpers, thongs, scarves, tights, playsuits and all other camping or travelling gear. Unlike hard luggage, a duffle bag is made from flexible yet durable material that can adapt to your style and needs. However, you should always wrap and pack sharp objects securely so they don 't pierce the bag.
- The lightweight solution: Duffle bags are available in a range of styles and sizes to suit men, women and children. Hard luggage is heavy and the weight is increased by the addition of compartments, pouches, zippers and integrated materials. Compare this to a large Denali Expedition II Duffle Bag available at Anaconda with 120 L capacity yet weighing only 2.3 kg. This large bag is an all-in-one compartment for swimwear, rainwear, hoodies, sports bras, drink bottles, cookware, first aid gear, t-shirts, chargers, electronics and travel accessories.
- Casual style travelling: Most people perform a meticulous suitcase packing exercise prior to travel. From then on, during the duration of the vacation, the suitcase will be in an almost constant state of disarray. Unless you have meticulous needs for a jet set lifestyle, a duffle bag is the ideal 'get up and go ' option for the casual traveller. With a duffle bag holdall, belongings can be stuffed into all corners to maximise load capacity, while small duffle bags are ideal as gym bags, work bags and sports bags where hard-wearing regular use is expected.
- Moveable and stowable: Duffle bags are the lightweight travel solution, and wheeled duffle bags are very popular. They are easy to lift and convenient to stow compared to cumbersome suitcases. They also make an excellent shopping bag alternative, and are perfect for 4WD adventures. Smaller duffel bags can be stowed in an airplane overhead compartment, increasing their versatility for overseas trips, and are the right size for storing swimwear, thongs and drink bottles for a day by the water.
- Duffle bag innovations: Anaconda responds to modern traveller needs with impressive duffle bag innovations. Special materials have been developed for enduring extreme environments, while compression straps, padded shoulder straps and other built in features improve comfort all-round.
HOW BIG IS A DUFFLE BAG?

IS A DUFFLE BAG CONSIDERED A CARRY ON?
It can be disheartening to arrive at an airport only to find your carry-on luggage is oversize. The most commonly allowed luggage size for overhead storage is 56 x 36 x 23 cm, and there are plenty of Anaconda duffle bag options that fit the bill. We personally select all products from highly regarded brands to ensure many years of reliable and safe travel with a duffle bag constructed to last. A small duffle bag is far more convenient than a hard-shell case for carry on plane storage.
WHAT ARE DUFFLE BAGS USED FOR?
The sky is the limit with today 's duffle bags. For some people, they are the luggage style of choice, while campers, hikers and off-road adventurers always carry a duffle bag for convenient storage of essential equipment and devices. Duffle bags are perfect for the gym also, facilitating easy storage of gym gear or work clothes for a quick change and healthy workout. Whether you are heading overseas, hitting the highway, or simply packing a delicious picnic lunch, a spacious duffle bag will accommodate all your needs.
