"I initially discovered the Dagne Dover duffle through my friend/coworker, Emma, but since her review and some 1.5 years later, the Carryall Duffle has gotten an important upgrade — a sleeve that lets you slide the duffle right over your suitcase handle! An eternal struggle of mine is balancing and rebalancing my bag or tote on top of my suitcase, so I knew right then and there that this duffle would be the perfect carry-on bag. (P.S. The backpacks also come with a luggage sleeve in case that's more of your style, or you don't need as much space as me, a nervous overpacker.)
I'm obsessed with the neoprene material; it gives off a very cool, easygoing look that can definitely take a little rain and some mindless tossing with no problem, and it's also super flexible and expandable to fit whatever's inside — which is A Lot. I've used this bag solo for a long weekend trip, but the true test is using it for an international trip, because when I go to somewhere like Seoul, you best believe I fly there with a mostly empty bag and fly back with a stuffed bag filled with knick-knacks (as pictured) — and especially, any of the smaller, more delicate things that I would rather not risk being squeezed in my suitcase will go in the duffle. There's also a padded laptop sleeve that comfortably fits my 13" Macbook Air (but it fits up to a 15" laptop), a big, zippered pocket adjacent to the sleeve, as well as two roomy side pockets where I put whatever I need to grab at a moment's notice. And there's even a removable nylon shoe bag! It's stylish, colorful, sturdy, and utilitarian-focused. We love to see it!" —Sarah Han
