Himalayan Travel Tips: Use a soft-sided duffel bag on trek

Use a soft-sided duffel bag on a trekking tripTrekking Duffel Bag: Use a soft-sided duffel and make your porters happy!

On an adventure trip, especially a trek where your gear is carried by human porters or pack animals, we recommend traveling with soft-sided, rugged duffel bags. On a Himalayan trek, your bag may be in for some rough treatment as it is strapped to a horse or yak or tossed on the roof of a jeep and tied down. A duffel bag made from a durable fabric such as Cordura, will make sure it is pliable enough to be easily handled by porters, who may lash several duffels together and add a reasonable amount of water-resistance. For added protection, put items such as your sleeping bag, books, maps, toilet paper…in garbage bags or Ziploc bags. Most adventure companies (such as yours truly One World Trekking), provide all group members with trek-tested duffel bags.
