The Perfect Back To School Duffels!

Time for my son to head back to college. The vast list of items he needs to bring back to school ranges from clothes, to shoes, to toiletries, to kitchen utensils, pots and pans, to bedding, to school supplies, and so much more. He drives to school so he needs to be able to pack everything as concise as possible to fit into his car. Thankfully, he has the perfect back to school duffel bags to make this big move possible:

The Mercury 36” Three Wheeled Duffle.
It holds all of his clothes and still has room left! The three wheels make it easy to move around and control, and the detachable internal compartment divider allows for easy organization. The zip off interior accessory bag and interior mesh pocket help to make Mercury the perfect college travel duffel because he can safely stuff all his electronic gear – chargers and stuff – and find them immediately. The best part is that this bag is collapsible so it can fit under any bed to be stored until it is needed again.

The High Sierra 36” wheeled duffel
This large duffel is able to hold most of his other college accessories. It has unique ventilated pocket pouch for laundry or sport shoes, which is a useful component (think shoe odor here). One of his favorite things are the skid guards on the bottom to protect against damage. The duffel is also easy to maneuver with its sturdy handle and wheels and like the Mercury large duffel, it holds a ton!

The Pathfinder Avenger Lite 20” rolling duffel
This wheeled duffel is wonderful for weekend trips home or for visiting his friends on other campuses. The bag is very light and durable, making it extremely useful for shorter travels. Although it is smaller than the other packing counterparts, it is still able to hold all his weekend needs. The extreme durability of this bag makes me confident that he will be able to use it well after college as he make his way into the work world.

As fun and exciting as all of these duffel bags are, he can’t wait to unpack them and welcome in the new school year.
