CRITERIA
Duffel Bags
Suitcases

Storage
  • Can store specially bulky or weirdly shaped gear
  • Prone to teetering when not filled to capacity
  • Easier to lose things in the big space
  • Can usually carry more stuff than suitcases
  • Conventional rectangular shape makes it easy to maximize space
  • Packing cubes are pretty much designed for suitcases

Durability
  • Material is typically very tough and sometimes weather proof
  • Hardside luggage will prevent sensitive items from getting squished
  • Projecting handles and wheels will be prone to bumps and damage

Security
  • Unsecured unless you have double zippers and will be using a padlock
  • Most suitcases now sport TSA-compliant locks

Mobility
  • Classic duffels must be carried by the grab handles or shoulder straps
  • Wheeled duffels have the ease of mobility of wheeled suitcases
  • Two wheels and a telescoping handle makes transport easier
  • Spinners with their four wheels and telescoping handle makes transport effortless
