What Are You Using for Luggage?

Let me be more specific- what are you using for exterior luggage and what are you using for interior luggage?

  • Exterior Luggage: obviously needs to be tough, water/dust proof, etc. so I'm thinking Pelican or the like here but is expensive and heavy but may be a necessary evil to protect certain items
  • Interior Luggage: I just purchased some various sized Aviator Duffel Bags by Red Oxx and they are amazing along with the price. Made right here in the US as well.
Figured I'd throw this out there to see what others are using for everything from air travel to weekend camping trips to full on expedition travel.


P.S. I searched for a similar thread and didn't see anything so forgive me if this has been posted before and I just didn't hit on the correct keyword.

Pelican is the best. I actually prefer the older style as I think the roller bit on the newere ones are too big.

I use them for interior as well and just supplement with soft sided bags of various sorts.

I use Filson.

My duffle had over 200k miles on it and the wheel broke (when loaded to 70lbs). Was in Seattle last Feb and asked the to repair it (I was willing to pay). They handed me a brand new one. I use the briefcase and carry on.


It's made in the U.S.A. and guaranteed for life.




P.S. I am partial to Filson as they have been outfitting me for hunts for the past 9 years.....

I use pelicans in and out, and use the wolf/bundu boxes now for food storage inside. Eagle creek or pelicans for flying but the pelicans suck up a lot of your weight allotment for airlines now which is a con. I toll a pelican 1620 to Guatemala and it was awesome to have that for all my electronics, clothes and souveniers when everything was getting rattled, thrown, rained on and soaked with mud and water for 10 days in the jungle. Seriously thinking about switching though to the new ARB dry bags for personal gear storage on the roof rack. so much lighter. lifting heavy pelicans or anything else up to a roof rack sux.

Hardigg military cases. Now owned by Pelican. Bought for their military contracts. Large enough that one holds all cooking needs, 2nd holds tent, lanterns, propane bottles, ground cloth, and large tarp if it rains hard. Usually have a third that has 4-5 sleeping bags in it as well.






For actual luggage I'm partial to the Orvis Battenkill stuff. I have had a couple of pieces of the stuff for 15+ years. I used to be the Natl Sales Manager for a larger lender and spent 4 days a week in airports- this stuff takes a wicked beating and still looks great. It also has a lifetime guarantee.

The ones in the picture Doug posted are fridges (with the housing made by hardigg). Hardigg cases are not as tall.

Doug might remember the capacity but the usable space is probably half that. There are batteries, fridge components, other electronics and insulation. Heavy mofos, for sure.

Pelican, though I'd like some Zarges, but too many $$

No way man. Those fridges are 150lbs empty, even I can't get one up there. That shot was taken in your driveway though. Think that was a Uwharrie trip. the fridges have two deep cycle batteries and are 60qt capacity. I only have one of those and it lives semi permanently in the sankey.

Yep these were brand new and had DRML stickers on them indicating our uncle had paid $728 ea for them. These were brand new and unused. I forget the total count but this is one of two trailer loads we pulled out of the Govt Liquidation yard in Portsmouth Va 4 years ago. The cases are stacked on their sides in order to fit as many as possible. You get a sense of actual dimmensions by looking @ the ones laying flat in the front of the trailer. All the No.Va guys got hooked up on that haul.

Nah- you still have me Mark. Thats the truck I sold Gustavo and he renamed Shrek. Its now beluga black with push button doors and lives in Arizona. Charles has the two part second row doors squirreled away some where. Now days I just hook up the sankey and go camping. No more bust ass to load the truck for hrs any more. As they say with age comes wisdom- even for hard headed Scot's.

I swear none of my hardigg cases are that tall, but I guess I'm mistaken sorry. They are big though - two of them basically fill the load area of the D90.

Yes, the trailer spoils one for sure.
