We borrowed the duffle case's layout and shape from classic trunks for easy packing. We blended that with ultralight fabric and the dual carry methods of a duffle for maximum portability. The result is a lightweight duffle case that's quick to pack and easy to carry. How lightweight?
It only weighs 1.1 lbs.
This isn’t your average, disorganized, frustrating-to-organize duffle – it’s a soft-sided, ultralight bag that you carry across your body and pack like a suitcase.
Let’s dig into the details of the Homebase Duffle Case.
There is one zippered pockets on the front face of the Homebase Duffle Case. Use it to stash small objects you might need to access quickly, like headphones, your boarding pass, or your passport.
On the top and side, you’ll find two grab handles. These are ideal for pulling your duffle case out of an overhead compartment.
Dual Carry Methods
Use the padded top handles to to carry the duffle case in your hand. Tuck them into the velcro side pockets when not in use.
The padded crossbody straps attaches via loops on each side of the duffle case. Unclip the buckles to stow the crossbody strap if preferred. We recommend storing it in the main compartment when not in use.
Open the duffle from the side, like you’re opening a book. Opening from the side gives you a wider space in which to pack, which means it's easier to organize your stuff. No more shoving your items inside haphazardly.
On the open flap, you’ll find two mesh pockets. Use these to organize small items that tend to get lost in an open compartment, like socks and accessories.
The duffle case can fit:
- 6 short sleeve tops
- 4 long sleeve tops
- 4 bottoms: pants, skirts, etc
- 1 pair of gym shorts or lounge pants
- 7-10 pairs of underwear
- 7-10 pairs of socks
- 1 lightweight jacket
- 1 winter jacket
- 2 sweaters
- 1 pair of shoes
- 1 scarf
- 1 pair of gloves
- 1 belt
- Toiletry bag
... and more. Modify your packing list based on weather, personal preference, and trip activity.
Fabric & Zippers
The Homebase Duffle Case is outfitted with ultralight LS21 waterproof sailcloth – a material originally developed for racing sails – with built-in abrasion resistance. Weather resistant YKK zippers further protect your stuff from the elements.
All of the duffle case’s buckles are made by Duraflex, widely regarded as the best quality on the market. On the crossbody strap, you’ll find soft, sweat-wicking Ariaprene foam for comfort.
