Review of the Rightline Gear Waterproof Duffel Bag


Collin: Hey everyone, it's Collin here at etrailer. Today we're going to take a look at the waterproof duffel bags from Rightline Gear. Now this duffle bag is going to be a really great addition to get any sports equipment, luggage, clothes, stored on the outside of your vehicle in a our waterproof, tight, sealed bag. So that you can create more space on the inside for passengers, cargo, anything like that. Now right here, you can see all of the equipment we have in the back of our vehicle right now. Let's go ahead and load it up into our Rightline Gar bag, so we can see the difference it makesSo now, as you can see, we've got the cargo area empty in the back of our SUV.

We've got more space to store luggage or anything we don't want to exposed to the elements, that won't fit in our duffle bags. We could flip the seats up and get more passengers inside. And as you saw, we had a lot of sets of shoes in there, that we use for really rigorous activities, soccer cleats, running shoes, basketball shoes and after using those, they aren't going to smell the greatest. Personally, I would rather not have those in my cargo area, where this stench could leak up to where I'm driving. That's not going to be too pleasant.

So, we just took them all, threw them in our bag, problem solved. Now as you can see, there's still a lot of space on the inside of our bag, so we can put more equipment in there if we need to.Now right now you can see, we have two bags loaded up in our cargo carrier. But, I do want to point out that your kits just going to come with one waterproof duffel bag, as well as the straps you need to secure it. Whether it's in your cargo carrier, in a roof mounted basket, wherever is convenient for you. And it's also going to come with a shoulder strap, so you can carry it very easily to your destination.The fabric is really tough and durable.

It's reinforced to help it avoid tears and snags. It's also waterproof with a PVC coating, so it's going to keep all of your contents on the inside safe and dry from the rain. It's also going to be UV resistant, so it's going to avoid fading over time.Right here, we have a good look at the inside of our bag. You can see it's very spacious. We do have a plastic reinforcement piece on the bottom, so that if you pile up your gear in here and it gets pretty heavy, it's not going to bow out the bottom of your bag.

Right here we have a good look at the plastic piece. It just inserts into the slip at the bottom of the bag. It's going to provide a really nice bottom of the bag, for all your stuff to sit. When you set it down, it's going to also protect it from any major impacts.Now just to give you an idea of if this is going to fit in your application, whether it's your cargo carrier or a cargo basket on top of your roof, and to give you an idea of if it's going to fit all of your cargo, whatever you want to put inside, it is going to hold 4.2 cubic feet of cargo inside the bag. The dimensions of the bag are as follows. 30 inches long. 14 and three quarters of an inch wide. 16 and a half inches tall. The bag is going to have a side pocket. It's going to measure seven inches tall by seven inches wide. It's going to be good for storing you shoulder strap, the straps to use to secure it inside your carrier or even smaller items, such as your phone, keys and wallet. If you are carrying around your bag.Both sides are going to have these durable handles, so if you just need to lift up off your cargo carrier, set it in the garage, you can do so. Or if you have to carry all the way into your house, maybe upstairs to your bedroom, we can take the shoulder strap and connect it to the four points on the outside of our bag. We'll start right here, pull down on the hook like so, and then we're going to have three more points to connect.From here, I can get it up on my shoulders to make it much easier to carry. Maybe even grab the second bag, if I need to. Your kits also going to come with two of these car clips, which you can connect to your straps to secure it to your naked roof. However, in our experience with these hooks, we haven't found a good spot to connect them on a lot of different vehicles we've tried, such as sedans, the SUVs. That's not to say it's not going to work with any vehicle. If you find that this works for the application, then feel free to use them.Now there's a nice flap, as you saw, with the hook and loop fasteners all around it, to help make sure no water gets towards the zipper. However, if any water we're to get onto your zipper, it is urethane coated, so it is going to help resist rust and corrosion and it's going to add to its waterproofness.If you're really liking this bag right now, but you think it's a little bit of overkill, you don't need that much space inside the bag. There is a smaller version of this available on our website. It has the same exact features, except instead of 4.2 cubic feet of storage space on the inside, you're going to have 2.1, so if that's something you're interested in, just check out our website.I really liked these duffle bags, compared to a lot of other waterproof bags that you might find from Rightline Gear or any other manufacturer. One thing I like is that, rather than having a really big bag that you put on top of your roof and secure it, those are nice, but these are more versatile. So, if you have space in the inside of your vehicle, you could toss them in there if you want. I can maneuver these by myself when they're full. Rather than that cargo bag, you have to empty it out to get it off. Like I said, you could toss them in your vehicle if you have enough space and it'll do just fine.Well, thank you all for watching and I hope this information helped you out. That's going to do it for our look at the Rightline Gear waterproof duffle bags.
