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

Pacsafe CitySafe CX Anti-Theft Convertible Travel Pack - Women's
A good, solid bag with great anti-theft features
I was asked to review this bag for the REI Product Advisers group. In that framework, REI sent the bag to me and asked me to try it out. Once I received it, I gave it a thorough look through and put it to work.
The bag is lighter than it expected it to be. The material is unfamiliar to me – not t...

Freefly Packable Duffle Matador
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

Great commuter pack
This pack does everything I need it to: it's comfy (I'm only 5'3 and it didn't feel too big), it's crazy secure (what PacSafe is known for), it looks sleek & cool, it has lots of handy pockets, and it's lightweight.
My only complaints are that it's kinda hard to get big stuff to fit (it gets larger...

Freefly Packable Duffle Matador
Love the bag not the pouch
I had their other duffle which I could always compress into it's compression sack.
This mesh one is just about half the size of the bag. I even emailed customer support to find the trick to getting it compact to fit in. If they would have made the mesh compression sack just a inch wider it would be ...

Pacsafe CitySafe CX Anti-Theft Convertible Travel Pack - Women's
Hard to put on, and front zipper too small for easy entry of large phones
I went through 5 weeks of travel this year, so this bag has been thoroughly tested before writing this review. What I like: The color, style, smooth materials, and convertible nature. I found that i most often used this as a day bag in backpack form, and only once did i use it as a purse i the eveni...

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.

Returned One, Now Happy
First one I ordered was the blush nude and it looked like a muddy mauve color and I didn't like it in person. I returned it for the black and that one looks great! I plan on wearing it in the fully open "backpack" style but instead of using the backpack strap configuration, will wear it like a cross...
