All in all a good quality bag as you would expect from Helly Hansen.

DURABILITY: The bag is made of a good strong material which does not easily rip or tear. It has good stitching where handles and straps connect to the main compartment. After a month of rigerous use; getting thrown about; covered in sea water; and going through several airport baggage handling systems, everything looks to be holding up well.
After a boat transfer in rough weather I can say this bag has a high degree of water resistancy, all my kit inside stayed dry even though the outside was sprayed with sea water.

SIZE: I travel usually for a couple of weeks or months at a time. This bag can easily accommodate enough clothes and other items to last me that long, with enough space for some duty free an the way back.

NEGATIVES: The only negative i can find so far is the hand carry straps are quite long, so when I carry it by hand it hangs too close to the ground. Pretty annoying so I find I use the shoulder straps more than I would usually. I'm 6ft so anyone under 5'8'' is probably going to be dragging it accross the floor if you decide not to use the shoulder straps.

POSITIVES: Good value for money. Seems durable so far, though one month isn't really enough time to say for sure. Looks good. Light weight. I'm happy so far!

If you want a good quality kit bag for a fair price, this is a good option.

This is a top gym bag. I've had a few over the years but nothing compared to my old HEAD bag from the late 1980's - that was a classic, until now. The Helly Hansen is a great quality bag. The shape fits perfectly into my gym locker and the zips / straps are really well placed. I especially like the fact that it can be worn over both shoulders (rucksack style). This allows me to carry it evenly distributed across my back, with a full load, without any back ache.

It's also a great looking bag and TARDIS-like in how much you can cram in. When I first saw it my impression was that it was on the small side, probably becuase it is black, however, it is remarkable how much I can get in. I wouldn't change this bag for one ten times the price - it's sylish, practical, well made and great value.

This bag is great. Very versatile...great size, water (more like splash) proof and can double up as a back pack and the whole thing seems very durable.
I would easily recommend this to anyone.

Very good Bag - Size - Weight - Portability.....

Then the stitching around the over shoulder straps has broken after a bit more than a months use. The bag is in perfect condition other than that. Just poor, this really shouldn't happen...I've had bags that have lasted me years...

I would say this is because it has only been stitched at the ends whereas a lot of manufacturers stitch and then seal it by burning it or glueing.

I ordered the 90 litre version in red.
It's made from a lovely plasticised nylon with big handles and backpack straps which tuck into the top flap so they can be hidden away when not in use.
Mesh pocket (1x) on the inside and another mesh pocket on the inside of the lid.
Bottom is not rigid and is made from a black ballistic nylon.

Feels really durable and well made. A few loose threads on the top but nothing out of the ordinary.
The 90L version is pretty big and I think would easily accommodate a 1 week winter holiday or 2 week summer holiday. Good for a car or expedition too.

5/5

I prefer to do most of my travelling without a suitcase. I needed a large holdall to replace my old one after several years of use. I am familiar with the Helly Hansen brand when it comes to outdoor clothing, as a brand of quality, so when I saw the price of this bag I felt I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed. Like all the HH products I have bought in the past, this is also quality. Very heavy duty material, sturdily constructed. Excellent value imho.

I Received it on time but with glue on the lateral black part. Not a big deal i choose to ignore it because i was really needed this bag.
First proper use today, put some stuff in it (7KG inside, the bag wasn't even half full), 10min walking with it using the backpack strap and they are ruptured, the sewing who keep them with the hook didn't resist !
I'm very disapointed about the quality of the product, it suppose to be a travel duffel bag, it should be able to transport at least some heavy stuff !

I was looking for a gym bag, that I could also use to go camping and such activities!

I was really confused with the 3 sizes 30L, 50L and 90L.. But i went for the 90L which is really spacious and nice looking!

If you're only looking for a gym bag, the 50L is more than enough.. But with the 90L bag you get a bag that you can take for camping or backpacking for a whole month, or just take to the gym because it isn't enormous!!

Gym bag, travel bag, bag for the day. I ensure this bag gets its money’s worth.

Day to day it’s a gym bag where I usually try to over-stuff (not pack... stuff) it with kit, and the zips are still holding, it has helpful netting on the inside to hold locker tokens, iPod, headphones, keys etc.

For travelling, I can get two days’ worth of clothes, towel, wash stuff and sleeping bag into it. Which all fits.

When I take the bag out in the day I’m safe knowing that the stuff inside is protected from water and being bright white it stands out, took it to an amusement park as a shared bag, people couldn't understand why we had that bag, but it held everything easily and stood out so if someone wanted to "acquire" it would be an easy find.

Great bag, only fault is that none of the straps are detachable. Par that possibly the most functional bag I have bought so far.
