With its 80-litre capacity the Rab Kitbag will swallow a lot of stuff. I’m pretty sure I could carry double the contents of my wardrobe in this. The 600 denier fabric walls and reinforced base also make it capable of taking a bashing.
The seams are triple stitched throughout the duffel and Rab have used bar stack stitching on the straps and handles. If you’re not familiar with this, it’s basically a way of giving ultra reinforcement to stitches through the use of a specially designed sewing machine with a gigantic needle.
For lugging the Rab Kitbag about quickly there are two handles at each end and then two in the centre that both latch together so it can be carried a bit like a briefcase. The two shoulder straps are comfortable thanks to their very generous padding, they’re also easy to adjust and they can both be removed and stowed away – useful if you’re flying and want to check the duffel in as hold luggage. The compression straps at both ends of the duffel are a nice feature as well.
