Robust webbing loops at both ends can be used as haul points for rope or pole transport.

    Full u-zip lid opens to provide complete access to the cavernous main compartment. The bottom of the lid features a mesh pocket to make sure critical items are easily accessible and a webbing loop to dummycord keys or other small items.

  • Tough

    Axis Expedition Duffels utilize advanced materials to create a lightweight but resilient carry system. Originally developed as a high-performance, long-life sailcloth, the shell is a durable, weather-resistant nylon laminated with a structurally reinforcing scrim.
