YETI, known for high-quality coolers, recently released a waterproof duffel bag that is fully submersible. This duffel bag is extremely tough and ready for any challenge. It has zero access points for water to enter. So, you can take it along for all of your backcountry adventures. It is perfect for a day at the lake, out on the river or for surfing at the beach.
The YETI Panga Duffel is not like any other waterproof bag on the market. For one thing, it is a beefy, heavy-duty bag. The Panga borrows from the company’s cooler design with a rigid EVA molded base and ultra tough high-density nylon fabric. Before leaving the factory, Panga subjects each bag to a stringent submersion and drag test. The bag has to stay in the water and keep contents dry for 30 minutes to pass. This duffel can withstand a beating for sure —and it will stay waterproof even after years of abuse.
There are mesh interior stowaway pockets perfect for storing your gear. Removable backpack straps make it easy to carry the duffel like a backpack. This makes it ideal for hiking. The duffel has a patented watertight zipper called Hydrolock. A tube of zipper lubricant is included with each bag. This helps keep the zipper will stay in top shape and makes it easy to open and close.
The Panga Duffel is available in three sizes for a range of uses—50, 70 and 100 liter. Fully-loaded, this duffel can stand straight on its end, which saves space—making it easy to just throw it in the back of a fully-loaded vehicle.
