8 Heads in a Duffel Bag

8 Heads in a Duffle Bag Main

If you’re looking for the 1997 movie 8 Heads in a Duffle Bag then you’re in the wrong place; try IMDb instead. On the other hand, if you’re looking to find that perfect duffel bag to stuff full of heads (or other travel necessities) then you are definitely in the right place.

The origin of the duffel bag or duffle bag (as it is sometimes spelled) is the town of Duffel, Belgium. Duffel was a producer of a heavy woolen fabric that was used to make the bags. This is also where the duffel coat gets its name from. American poet, E.E. Cummings is credited with first using the term duffel bag in a letter he wrote in 1917 while abroad during WWI.

I just returned home from a multi-day trip and once again marveled at how my canvas duffel bag always comes in so handy. When a suitcase is too much and a backpack is too little a good duffel bag can get you through that weekend getaway or day trip. My weekender bag was purchased from J. Crew, however before I purchased it I had been looking for some time. There are so many options out there it’s hard to sift through them all to find some great looking bags. I hope this list will help you narrow down the best duffel for you.

When choosing any bag I will use for traveling, I ask myself only three questions:

  1. Will the bag fit everything I need it to carry?
  2. Will the bag stand up to the beating it’s about to take?
  3. Can I picture myself sitting at the airport bar, sipping on a cocktail, with this bag on the barstool next to me?
