Stormfront® Wet/Dry Duffel is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality bag, with room for improvement. I ordered this bag to use primarily for separating my wet freediving gear from other essentials like my camera and a change of clothes. The quality of the materials and the style is excellent, but I found myself really wishing that this bag came with clip on backpack straps like my black hole 90L duffel does. Carrying this duffel full on any sort of hike, especially when weighed down by a wetsuit full of water proves unwieldy with the shoulder strap alone. It would also be nice to have a deeper lip on the bottom zip section, as keeping your items in the duffel while folding the top over and zipping it closed can be difficult, without removing anything that is in the top section beforehand. Overall, a high quality bag that suits a lot of adventure and travel needs, but it needs some functional adjustments before it is worth the price tag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not ready for prime time Picked up the Stormfront Wet/Dry Duffel and was excited to try this new bag as I've previously owned (and promptly sold) the Stormfront Rolltop Boat Bag. Seems like this item replaces that one in the fishing line. First, the good, then the bad, then how to improve it, and last my recommendation on who should buy it. Love the TPU rubberized fabric they use for these pieces (but imagine it's primarily what makes these duffles on the spendy side). The material is flexible, long-lasting and waterproof. The top carry handles are well-placed. The bottom compartment unzips to allow for wet boots and waders to go on the bottom - where they should be. The top zip is one you've seen before on H2No and Goretex Jackets - the two toothed sides of the zipper have the glossy black rubberized "tape" which when zipped together form a snug seal to ward off light rain. Not waterproof. Two side handles are nice for chucking the bag and going. Cusco orange is a great color. Handy, simple mesh pocket inside. Really great size for my waders and boots below and all my soft fishing clothing up top. Negatives: The main compartment zipper is NOT waterproof! All of the bags in the Stormfront series are waterproof because the main compartment is using a T-Zip. Because Patagonia designers - for some odd reason, probably price - did not spec this bag with a T-Zip in the main compartment. Do not rely on this bag to keep gear dry in a boat! Additionally, the main compartment zipper is a dual zipper, which means zipping the two sliders together leaves a sizeable (1/8" to 1/4") gap between the zippers. Water gets in fast. Ask me how I know. Also, Patagonia removed or spec'd zippers where the "tongue" tab part of the zipper - the part you grab with your fingers with - is removed and replaced by a small piece of 3-4mm paracord. I'm not sure why, because functionally, this does not work well at all... What results are zippers that tend to bind, or, you need to use two hands- one to hold the fabric of the bag taught, and the other on the other side to unzip. After a 30 degree day of all rain on the Olympic Peninsula, my barely-functioning hands could hardly get the bag's zippers open, half-tempting me to throw the bag into the river which I just stepped out of. Lastly, the bottom (wet) section has no structure, so when you're repacking it with the wet stuff you have to sorta shape it out with your hands before you put anything down there. How to Fix: What must improve seems so obvious that it honestly makes me wonder whether this design was sitting at the back of the bus, didn't get tested much, and was a bit hasty decision to wind up in the production line in the first place. 1) Replacing the main ziper with a single-slider T-Zip would make the main (Dry) part of the bag waterproof and ready for a boat. This would be ideal, and place the Stormfront Duffel in line with the rest of the Stormfront series as I mentioned above. If designers decided against a T-Zip, then utilize a single-slider that tucks up into that little zipper slider hood. You've all seen what I'm talking about on so many other Patagonia pieces. 2) For ALL ZIPPERA, utilize versions that have the METAL PULL TAB ON THE SLIDER. 3) Make the inside mesh pocket a little bigger and not black. Improvements that are not imperitive: 1) Adding four D-rings to the bag would allow this to easily be lashed onto a boat, giving the Stormfront Wet/Dry Duffel increased versatility. 2) Some structure could be added to the bottom (wet) compartment floor. Perhaps another layer of material in the corners to reiforce them and stiffen them a bit, a thicker-spec'd piece of TPU for the floor, or adhering a 1/8" closed cell foam to the floor. Lots of ways to address this. Would I reccommend this? Yes - if you're looking for a regular duffel bag that can travel in all kinds of methods and is water resistant. No - If you ever plan on using it on a boat on a river. If you want to guarantee your stuff stays dry. In sum, I dig the bag, although it really feels like a "first draft" of bag that the designers rushed to the catalog. With a few funtional improvements this bag is ideal. As is it's only half-realized product addition to an otherwise strong Stormfront line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To Patagonia and back, for real! Bought this to pack all my clothes and fishing gear in for a 12-day trip to Patagonia. It was perfect, beefy and durable, and was allowed as a carry on. One large open compartment with a small zippered stash pocket and a separate bottom compartment that was perfect for my waders, boots and other damp or dirty items. I bought the bright orange and use the two hand straps over my shoulder and wore the whole thing as an oversized backpack which made it easy to get around airports, etc. As durable and tough as this piece of gear is, it was lightweight. Will be using it for many years and to many destinations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Concept But....... Love this bag for the "concept" - separate your dry clothes from your wet ones when coming home - BRILLIANT!. Problem is that the zipper on the dry topside compartment does not keep the water out where the zippers meet each other, not matter where along the zipper's length they rest. Looks like a weatherproof bag, feels like a waterproof bag - so why not overlap the zipper and make it a weatherproof bag. Would not take much to perfect. At this price, it should be perfect.
