Laundry Bag = Timbuk2 Duffel Bag

September 27, 2006

Timbuk2 Duffle
I recieved one of those marketing emails from Timbuk2. It was advertising their Duffel Bag as a laundry bag. Not a bad idea. They even listed the quantity of clothes you could carry. In the Large Duffel ($100) it is advertised that you can carry:

12 tees

4 pairs of jeans

2 hoodies

a roll of quarters

6-pack of pbr

Cheesy Poofs & Peanut Butter Cups

or 244 socks

I’m really curious as to the testing of these bags. Were the cheesy poofs crushed? Why not a King Size Snickers? Perhaps if Timbuk2 sent me a duffel, I could verify.

I guarantee I could fit more in the Small Duffel ($60) than they could, this is all they could manage:

3 tees

2pairs of jeans

1 hoodie

handfull of quarters

a book


77 socks

Probably the coolest feature is this:

An internal compression strap helps squeeze the contents to assist zipping the bag shut.

That’s perfect for squeezing extra laundry in there. They also have a Medium size for $80.

By the way you can spell duffel as duffle too.
