The beauty of a duffle is that it offers a large cavity to cram in more stuff.

“This bag is named the Black Hole for a reason," Powder explains.

"It will suck in every piece of kit you own with room to spare—perfect for trips where you don't have to carry your own gear, like heli bumps into backcountry lodges or donkey-aided backpacking trips into the forest."

Made out of super-durable 1,200-denier polyester fabric, this lightweight bag features a DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish and it's got backpack straps that make it very convenient to carry when chasing planes and trains is in your future.

“Roller bags are the only way to travel when you're sticking to places with paved roads, sidewalks, and elevators," Powder advises.

“It's just the right size for a 10-day summer trip, with room for a lots of hot weather clothes, or a week-long winter ski resort trip, with room for your boots plus long underwear, a puffie, and shell."

This bags "split level" design makes it easy to keep your items organized: separate your gear from your garb, or tuck in those bulky items that make for an awkward carry on.
