Gregory's Stash duffel gets its name from its ability to pack down to a surprisingly small size inside its included mesh stuff sack. But unlike the kind of thin, structure-less nylon bag you'd normally associate with that kind of packability, the Stash duffel is fully capable when deployed thanks to its heavy-duty nylon fabrics and the option to carry it backpack-style through the airport, bus terminal, or wherever else life takes you.

The Gregory Stash Duffel might just be the perfect duffel: super strong, easy access, simple and versatile. With haul handles on all four corners and a two-way carry strap, the options are almost endless.

This thing is so close to being perfect. I initially ordered the 45 L and 65L because I was not sure what size I needed. I found that the 65L was way to big and would only work as a checked bag. The 45L was perfect size for an longer trip, while still being a carry-on. The only problem I found- was that if using the bag as a backpack (the handle turns into two backpack straps) - the bag had to be fully loaded to be comfortable, if you had room to spare, the bag was not symmetrical, and was not comfortable on your back. Also no waist belt, which was one thing I wanted. I had to return both bags, but If you are looking for more of a duffle, a perfect size,and don't need the backpack straps, this is the bag for you. Super durable and super lightweight
Duffel looks plenty durable, large enough for 3-4 days worth of clothes, padded shoulder straps are comfortable enough for full loads, and this thing packs down small. I had to pass on this duffel because I needed something more rigid.
I included a photo because this duffel is actually a packable design that comes in a stuff sack.
Literally can fit my entire bedroom in the 65L, carry it on all vacations. as well as every day to work as i commute and go play in the woods after work, Backpack straps are sick! it has a very rugged construction fit for a every day outdoorsman or a carry-on bag!
I purchased this bag from another retailer (sorry bc, it was much cheaper) and am planning on returning it and buying Patagonia's Black Hole 45 instead. Initial impressions: I liked the muted color for travel, the size seemed right for what I was looking for (two weeks in S. America) and I liked the duffel/backpack combo. After packing and unpacking several times and walking some distance using the backpack function I wouldn't dream of taking this on my travels where I might need to actually use this as a backpack to walk any distance. I think the top of the backpack straps are placed too low for comfort and as another reviewer said, just isn't comfortable as a backpack.
Other things I didn't love: there are no internal pockets of any kind and there is A LOT of excess webbing that does not serve a purpose, especially on the top synching feature. Once you get the webbing secured so it doesn't catch on anything getting back into the pack is a pain. If this were the only flaw of the pack design I'd just hem the straps, but this is not the case.
If you're looking for an easy carry-on duffel or something to throw in the back of the truck for road trips this will be a great pack. It just it's going to work for me.
