26 Oct Carhartt Makes Backpacks, Too: Carharrt Elements Duffel 2.0
Carharrt is generally known for their ultra-tough workwear, but it appears they make some stylish bags and accessories too. For a prime example, look at the Carharrt Elements Duffel 2.0, which combines the best of a duffel bag with a traditional backpack design to make a functional, easy-to-use and versatile carry-on bag for all kinds of traveling.
The Elements Duffel is made from an 840-denier polyester – tough, durable and abrasion-resistant – and features what they call Rain Defender technology to keep the water out and your goods. It’s also built over a heavy-duty tarpaulin base, which adds some indestructibility and again guarantees no water gets in when you set it down on a wet surface.
There’s an extra-large main compartment for stashing most of your gear and clothing, with four zippered mesh pockets, as well as tie down straps. This is complemented by a zippered wet/dry compartment in which to stash your dirty gear. They are also lined with a bright yellow, odor-fighting liner material.
The back panel has FastDry air mesh, as do the shoulder straps, for moisture-wicking. And the shoulder straps can be tucked away when you don’t need them, or they can be used to carry like a traditional carry handle.
Finally, if you’re concerned about quality, just remember: it’s Carharrt. This bag will last forever. Grab one and use it for everything, from the gym to the runway.
