The Ultimate Review of Eagle Creek’s Cargo Hauler 60L Duffel Used Around the World

The Eagle Creek mid-sized Cargo Hauler 60L Duffel is the perfect go-to duffel with plenty of space for all your gear. After many trips, I can say it easily over-delivers.

On a recent trip to Colorado, my Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler 60L Duffel came in handy! I was flying on an unnamed budget airline who likes to apply multiple fees for all carry-on or checked baggage. With my Cargo Hauler duffel, I could easily fit my backpack inside and eliminate extra fees by only having one bag.

The Cargo Hauler has three main compartments. Within the main compartment, they’ve created a smart cargo net that can be used to divide the area in two. This cargo net is helpful if you want to keep your bike gear separate from your clothes or shoes. Eagle Creek does an excellent job of paying attention to details. For example, the center compartment can expand into one of the end pockets providing more room. Or, you can use the two end pockets for other items like dirty clothes, toiletries, or other gear.

Eagle Creek has strategically placed sturdy webbing handles on all four sides so you can carry it however you like and the stow-able shoulder straps come in handy running through airports or transferring your luggage from the airport to your vehicle! On one recent trip to the Tetons, I tossed the duffel into the bed of a pick-up truck where it was bombarded by dust, rain and wind. The abrasion resistant material kept my gear and clothes clean and dry!

Did I say the Cargo Hauler can carry a lot of gear? On my recent trip to Turkey, I packed it full of clothes along with bike and camera gear and I was able to keep it under 50 pounds to avoid additional baggage fees. Carrying all of that weight, this duffel handled like a champ providing the utmost confidence. 

Overall, I love Eagle Creek’s Cargo Hauler 60L duffel. It’s a versatile duffel perfect for multiple sports, trips, missions, or anything you through at it. Plus, when you are not using it, the Cargo Hauler packs into its pocket for convenient storage!  

If you are in the market for a new duffel, I recommend checking out Eagle Creek's Cargo Hauler!
