Reviewers like these things about the Helly Hansen Duffel

  • The material appears to be extremely durable and straps are sturdy as observed by a number of users.
  • Many reviewers thought it's great for travel as it wipes clean and packs into its own laundry bag.
  • Some users are so amazed with how the zippers worked every single time with out any hang up, even when the bag was stuffed to it's maximum capacity.
  • A lot of users like how the top opens in a U-shape and they can fold it back for easy access to the interior.
  • Many owners find it tough, waterproof and easy to carry.
  • A number of users like how it collapses and folds down to almost nothing.
  • One user described it as an extraordinarily durable, solid, over-engineered bag.
  • Where the Helly Hansen Duffel bag really stands out, is in the fabric and sewing, t's reinforced at all the key points by thick nylon webbing and double-stitching as pointed out by some users.
  • Some reviewers like the presence of a generous exterior pocket that can easily accommodate a full-size tablet, travel documents, and other slim miscellany.
  • One user particularly noted how there's enough rigidity in the rings at either end that the main compartment can hold its shape while empty, which makes packing it easier.
  • Some reviewers find the handles on either end, handles over the top, and backpack straps,all sturdily attached.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • Some users commented that beefier thread and stitching would have been appreciated.
  • Others thought the zippers could have been better.
