A few years ago, we started looking for the perfect bag for our clients to move their belongings from inn to inn, when they’re trail running the Tour du Mont-Blanc. This is it! The 55-liter size has enough room for a few sets of town clothes and personal effects.

The duffel easily turns into a pack, for hauling around town. There's a mesh inner-zip pocket and Run the Alps logo on the lid.

Whether you’re spending the night at Les Mottets on the border with Italy, or just headed out for the weekend in Boulder, this is the go-to bag! Our original duffel has traveled back and forth to the Alps a dozen times, been carried by mules, and cached in a glacier… and it’s still doing well!

It’s the perfect size for our trips for baggage transport! You can use it as a carry on if you slightly underfill it, as stuffed full it will exceed the maximum dimensions. Please check with your airline about specific flight requirements before traveling.
