The Chico Duffel is a perfect compact bag that’s made from 86% recycled materials and stores in its own stuff sack.
When you need a lightweight, all-purpose bag, the ChicoBag duffel is an environmentally friendly choice. We like the fact that it has a 1601 cubic inch, (26 liter) capacity for an abundance of uses but weighs only 9.9 ounces. Furthermore, it and can fold up into a small stuff sack that can be thrown into your day pack or hung with a recycled aluminum carabiner onto your hydration pack.
For minimalists who want to carry less, the ChicoBag duffel is the way to go. But just because it’s lightweight and compact doesn’t mean it’s not sturdy enough to carry everything from your dirty laundry to outdoor gear. The recycled PET ripstop fabric is durable and features a heavy-duty main zipper. Inside the bag, three mesh compartments can hold smaller items that you want quick access to.
The bag features a removable nylon shoulder strap and two nylon carrying handles which make it great to carry along with you where ever you go. We used the ChicoBag duffel to carry everything from our dirty laundry and trash after a weekend of backpacking, as a gear bag for the gym, and as an extra bag to haul souvenirs and extra clothes purchased during a weekend outing.
Each time, we easily washed the ChicoBag in cold water and hung it out to dry to keep it fresh and ready for it’s next use. The ChicoBag duffel also comes in a variety of colors and retails around $40. While this may sound a little high for a compact duffel bag, keep in mind that you’re also purchasing a product that reduces the mount of plastic in our landfills and you can also use it to carry your groceries or any other item, to eliminate the need for a plastic bag.
