Why are BAD BAGS the Best American Duffel? Because we craft them with the best materials available. And we construct them to extreme tolerances. Hey, we travel too! We don’t want a bag to fall apart. Ever.
Every BAD BAG features:
Rugged but soft 1,000-denier ballistic CORDURA® nylon fabric, urethane-coated for water resistance. A rain/stain repellent is added to the exterior of the fabric
Double-stitching and taped seams throughout.
Nickel-plated, welded, no-rust hardware that will never let you down.
Two-inch, 6,000-pound break-strength seat-belt webbing used througout each bag to ensure longevity, strength, and uniform weight distribution.
Cross-stitched and box-stitched handles and stress points for extreme durability.
Beefy #10 YKK zippers: rugged enough to zip even when overstuffed.
Plus such nice touches as:
Flat-bottomed construction for stable, easy loading.
