I almost don’t want to write about Arc’teryx gear because it is so overpriced and turning into the North Face of this generation, but they really do make incredibly high-quality gear, so I can’t not write about them. That brings us to their newly announced Rolling Duffel that breaks from some established norms in the outdoor gear hardcore duffel. Unlike TNF’s and Patagonia’s duffels it isn’t made from shiny denier ballistic nylon. Instead, it’s made from 630d high tenacity nylon and reinforced in critical wear areas. Where it really goes its own way though is in the external frame that gives it a great volume to weight ratio and lets it store completely flat when not in use but still have lots of support and easy rolling when loaded. The zipper opens this thing up completely so you can get to everything in it without digging. There are also internal compression panels so you can lock down the load even when you aren’t filling it up completely. They will be available in 80 and 110 liter options seemingly only in black. There’s no official word on pricing yet, but you can expect them to be a few to several hundred dollars.
