Freefly Packable Duffle Matador
Matador Transit30 2.0 Packable Duffel Review | Pack Hacker
We’re not huge fans, but it works. We also think Matador may have missed an opportunity to have the bag compress into the quick-grab pocket, instead of having a separate compression pouch. The separate pouch works well on the backpacks, but in this case you’re just stuffing a duffel full of gear, so it would be nice to have that out of the way

Matador Freefly 16 Review: Six-Month Check-In
Where we left off, I was thoroughly impressed how easily this ultralight packable pack integrated itself into my daily routine. Whenever my girlfriend and I would leave the house, we’d grab it with a couple of 32 oz Yetis and some snacks. Having spent 6 months with it, I could not be happier

I've waited an entire whole year to use the backpack enough times to write the review. The bag is very well made, excellent and quality materials. Love the honeycomb design however, IT IS THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE BACKPACK one could buy! The straps are extremely uncomfortable. Perhaps the one that i ha...

Freefly Packable Duffle Matador
Love my new duffel
This bag was so useful on my last flight. It fits easily in my luggage and has plenty of room to bring back extra stuff. Matador always delivers on the quality goods.

Excellent Backpack
The bag is excellent it۪s well-made and it۪s well worth every dollar that I spent on it. The only gripes I have if any are small and maybe nitpicky 1) I don۪t care for the coyote brown color Maxpedition offers and wish they offered more of a color / material selection 2) I wish they had some of that...
