Be careful of old/new bag models sold as the same bag,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: High Sierra Bubba Duffel (Apparel)
I ordered two bags in different colors expecting them identical in every other respect. However, when I received the bags I discovered they were VERY different from each other: one was lighter, flimsier, with a side pocket lining made out of tarp-like material, which makes annoying crinkling sound, while the other was heavier, with a sturdier bottom, and more nicely finished with a nylon side pocket lining. Both bags are Bubba 7118, but the labels differ and I suspect one is an older model. I had a good look at the two bags and at the pictures of them in various colors, and I suspect that the bags with the logo on the side pocket are the newer model, while the ones with the logo above the side pocket are the older one. That would explain minor differences in straps as well as curious repetition of color varieties. While I don't care much for the older model (the tarp-like pocket noise drives me crazy), I really like the newer model. Unfortunately the older model bags are not less expensive, and it's also hard to know for sure which model you pick while shopping.
Model issues aside, I'd give it four stars otherwise, because it is a nice bag, just the right size for the gym, and reasonably priced. It would be easier if the bags were marketed appropriately, but that's the downside of internet shopping.

I suggest you get product dimensions in the product description and compare it against your gear. The bag is big enough for a two nigh overnight trip, but I don't know how big your gear is.
