Here at Knapsack, we’ve reviewed a number of different bags. Most of those have focused on ones you may use in an office work situation, setup for carrying laptops and the like. Your job may not have you carrying that sort of gear, or maybe you just want something robust to carry for your weekend outings. If that’s the case, take a look at the Ergodyne Arsenal water-resistant duffel bags.

We should all understand what a duffel bag is. Rather than breaking storage into a variety of compartments and such, you instead get a large, open space to shove in whatever you want, be it safety gear, packing cubes of clothing, or whatnot. Basically, it’s your canvas, you paint it how you want.

What caught my eye about the Ergodyne Arsenal bags is the fact that not only are they made out of tough 600D material, they’ve been coated to help keeping moisture out of the inside of the bag. So, whether it’s raining or snowing, everything inside should stay nice and dry so long as the zips are closed and you’re not trying to submerge the bags.

Another feature that I really like about the Ergodyne Arsenal is the fact that the interior is done in a light grey. Often, in a black bag, the interior is black as well, and it can be difficult to find what you’re looking for. With the light grey interior, however, you should have no problem finding where that small flashlight disappeared inside of the bag.

Depending on what you need, you’ve got three size choices for the Ergodyne Arsenal. The smallest comes in at 55L ($134.95), the medium is a roomy 90L ($149.95) or you can go all out with the 130L roller-bag version ($249.95). Whatever it is, this should keep your belongings all together and nice and dry. For me, it seems like a great bag for those of us going car camping.
