How does a man travel? This question has puzzled women for years and they don’t understand how we are able to approach travel with such a minimal amount of necessities. A man looks at the weather of the destination they’re going to and will select the exact amount of clothes out for the exact amount of days. Men don’t have backup outfits or certain clothes for certain situations because we don’t see the need in that. We also don’t like the idea of carrying extra clothes around because that will just weigh us down in the airport. We also carry minimal amounts of bathroom needs: toothbrush, toothpaste, possibly some hair gel, and maybe some back up toilet paper (if we’re going to a place that might not have any). The other important thing about men and travel is we actually hate to carry any kind of actual luggage. If our wives get us matching luggage we actually cry on the inside a little bit every time we have to pack for a trip. The manly way to travel is to throw your stuff in a duffel bag.
A good duffel bag will last for years and allow you to travel while maintaining your man card. As an adult, you need to ditch the duffel bag that you managed to get for free when buying that one bottle of cologne that probably smells like college. Topo Designs is based in Colorado and have created one of the best duffel bags we’ve seen. They were nice enough to send us a demo of their 24″ Duffel and instantly became a fan of Topo Designs. When you first pick up the duffel, the first thing you will notice is the high quality leather handle that you use to pick up the bag. The Duffel comes in three different designs which are black, orange, and duck camo so you can find a design that matches best with you. We recommend the orange because it pops and if you have to check the duffel bag, you will actually be able to see your bag from a mile away (and not have to pick up 20 of the same Samsonite bags trying to find yours). The duffel has the handles built in but also comes with the attachable shoulder strap if you prefer that (we did). Inside of the Duffel you have a couple of different zipper pockets to place the items you need to make sure stays separate from the rest of your clothes which was a nice option too.
Topo Designs has managed to create a duffel bag that is a really high quality bag. We could go into the details about the material but this Duffel was nice enough you could just tell it was high quality when you picked it up. They have a lot of other cool pieces that you should check out too. Click here to purchase the Topo Designs Duffel Bag and image source. Click here to go to the Topo Designs homepage.
