May 23, 2024

The brand’s debut luggage series continues to win awards.

Dover, NH/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – NEMO’s new Double Haul™ convertible duffel & tote series has won Outside magazine’s esteemed Editors’ Choice award in its 2024 Summer Gear Guide. Three other products from NEMO’s 2024 line were also recognized ⏤ the new fully recyclable Resolve™ 15L Endless Promise® technical active daypack, named the Most Eco-Friendly in the pack category; the Tensor™ Trail ultralight sleeping pad, named the Coziest summer backpacking pad; and the Disco™ Endless Promise® fully recyclable Spoon® shape sleeping bag, named Most Sustainable backpacking sleeping bag.

The new bluesign® certified Double Haul convertible duffel ($169.95 – 219.95) is not just a feat of engineering, but another example of NEMO’s commitment to innovative design and making products that are better for people and the planet.

  • Made with sustainable materials: bluesign® approved, PFAS-free, solution-dyed recycled PET liner; urethane-coated bluesign® approved recycled nylon shell; bluesign® approved nylon webbing; and PFAS-free polyester YKK zipper.
  • Enhanced with stiffened trusses to keep the bag upright and open for easy packing.
  • Carry as a Duffel: Equipped with short grab and go handles and side-release buckles to compress cargo and maintain a duffel shape.
  • Carry as a Backpack: Unsnap and loosen the padded shoulder straps for a comfortable carrying option over longer distances. (Retighten and snap the webbing to keep the straps out of the way and safe when checking baggage.)
  • Carry as a Tote: Deploy the longer tuck-away straps for easy slinging over one shoulder. Unsnap the side buckles and leave the zippered top open to fit even more gear.
  • Boasts a huge main cargo space, available in 30L / 55L / 70L / 100L capacities.
  • Thoughtfully designed for easy repairability to extend the product’s lifespan and potential future resale.
  • Packs into its own carrying case which can also be used as an internal packing cube.

“We tested plenty of gear boxes and bags last summer and fall, but NEMO’s Double Haul Duffel was a shoo-in favorite thanks to its brilliant design that transforms this bag from duffel to pack to tote. ‘The options are outrageous,’” said Outside’s editors and testers.

And take it from the experts, this carry-all does it all. “Testers unanimously agreed that the Double Haul isn’t just ideal for camping adventures, but also day trips to the crag, ski resort, or even the gym. “It’s perfect for any outdoor junkie looking for a robust bag to haul their gear to and from their adventures.”

NEMO’s 2024 launch into luggage has been well-received. In addition to Double Haul, the Resolve™ Endless Promise® technical active daypack earned the ISPO international outdoor design award and the Vantage™ Endless Promise® everyday adventure pack was included in Men’s Journal’s Travel Awards for Best Travel Backpack.
