Do you have a table top review of this duffel bag? Where can I read reviews? Does it have YKK zippers? What denier fabric is it? Does have super duper coating on it? Is it UPF 100? Is it quadruple stitched? Does it smell of lilacs? .... kidding.
I’m right there with ya. Mines in a duffle bag that I have zero idea where I even got it from, and have been using for many years.

Haha.. I think I got mine on amazon years ago for less than $20.. in hindsight, I could of gone to the thrift store or goodwill and paid more like $2. Reminds me of a line from My Cousin Vinny... "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along. You get thirsty. You spot a little brook. You put your little deer lips down to the clear blue water... BAM! A ****IN' BULLET RIPS OFF PART OF YOUR HEAD! YOUR BRAINS ARE LAYIN' ON THE GROUND IN LITTLE BLOODY PIECES. Now, I ax ya. Would you give a **** what kind of pants the son of a b**** who shot you was wearing? "

I understand in some situations a high quality bag is necessary, but at the end of the day it's a bag and only a bag. If you were constantly in and out of this bag several times per day, I can see spending good money for it. I keep some recovery gear (lesser used recovery gear) in Makita brand bags that came with some of my power tools. Plenty sturdy for that gear too.

Warn sells a "back pack" recovery bag for $86.99 on amazon as of the time i'm writing this.. Recovery gear backpack? Haha.. get real.

Don't under estimate the usefulness of a good heavy duty back pack. I got this one from Lincoln Electric as a promotional item along with a helmet I bought. It came with a few other things … beany, gloves, hat, etc. I don't use it for recovery gear but it is very useful for tools at the auto junk yards I go to. It frees up my hands so I can carry out more stuff!

But how do you hash tag that on the gram to get potential sponsors to notice? #idontknowwhereigotitbutitworks?
