Yeti’s durable and tough Panga Waterproof Duffel Bag
Yeti takes the conventional — items like cooler — and gives them a shot in the arm by way of extremely upgraded, durable fabrics and tough construction. That approach results in pieces like the Panga, the brand’s new waterproof duffel bag that just so happens to be fully submersible. That’s right — fully submersible, no doubt about it.
The unique Thickskin Shell from Yeti is a laminated, high-density nylon, a much tougher fabric than normally found on your average duffel bag. Stowaway mesh pockets provide easy access to your everyday carry essentials, while three size options in terms of storage give you all the carrying capability you need.

The strong and sturdy Bradley Mountain Weekender Duffle
Some solid elements go into a great weekender bag, and the Bradley Mountain Weekender Duffle has all of them, or so it would seem. From the rich Martexin waxed canvas to a solid metal zipper from Riri (some of the best quality in the world), this stylish weekender bag is going to hold everything you need and then some, with oiled leather straps to boot. The made-in-the-USA construction is simply second to none, especially for a durable bag. It’s a great price, and it’ll take you farther than you think — from the beach to the barbeque and back, with space left to spare. (via)
