Arc’teryx built the Rolling Duffel for outdoor athletes who carry their gear on the plane.
Arc’teryx wants you to bring all your outdoor gear next time you board a plane. The outdoors apparel and equipment manufacturer launched this rolling duffel in spring.
Arc’teryx Rolling Duffels
The brand touts the duffels for “expeditions that require bringing along extra gear like bulky ski boots, sharp ice tools, helmets, climbing ropes.”
We have not received a sample to test, but their site claims the bags weigh 7.5 and 7.7 lbs. each.
“It makes all hardware accessible and repairable,” said Arc’teryx design manager Chris Hodgett. “It eliminates wear points from an internal frame rubbing through exterior material. Finally, it eliminates the need for additional handles and lash points. You can pick up the bag or lash it down from any side using the tubular frame.”
It also allows the duffel to pack flat when empty.
They are coated and seam taped for weather resistance, and sport Arc’teryx’s WaterTight zipper. The luggage opens with one large, U-shaped, zippered front panel. A small zippered pocket holds IDs and boarding passes.
The Arc’teryx Rolling Duffels are now available and are priced at $425 (V80) and $449 (V110).
