This USA-Made Mil-Spec Waterproof Duffel Is Nearly Indestructible

Not everyone needs a weekender duffel that can survive through mud, snow, sleet, rain, or even full submersion. Then again, Colfax Design Works doesn’t make gear for everyone. But if you’re the type whose adventures lead down the road less traveled, you’re exactly for whom the Project T.O.A.D. Drybag was built.

Made in the USA from top-tier mil-spec materials, this 40L duffel (which can transform into a backpack) is constructed from a waterproof-coated 500D Cordura nylon that’s lightweight, abrasion and puncture-resistant, and can survive being fully submerged without anything inside getting damp. A part of Colfax’s Tactical Operations Amphibious Drybags line, it also boasts a unique locking buoyancy valve that allows the bag to be inflated, so you can use it as a floatation device in an emergency. Paired with mil-spec hardware, dual colorways (black or camo), and even webbing systems for modular expansion, this $339 bag is likely to survive the apocalypse and come back for more.

Purchase: $339
