Big Agnes Stagecoach Duffel - Duffel Bag : Reviews

As the country begins to reopen, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

From Big Agnes's outdoor-inspired travel line comes the redesigned Stagecoach, a virtual amphibian and, of the bags tested, hands-down the best hauler in the muck, slush, and rain. The 3,300-cube small is pictured, but it comes in medium and large as well. Thanks to its nylon-laminated membrane and welded seams, this carry-on really is waterproof, as one Colorado reviewer confirmed after a rain-soaked passage. As a traveler, the Stagecoach is easy, with a burly, retractable dual trolley handle and silky 70mm inline-skate wheels; deployable padded shoulder straps, so you can comfortably wear it as a backpack; and a sturdy haul handle for carrying as a duffel. Our only gripe: It won't stand upright when loaded. 5.8 lbs; bigagnes.com
