Gear: The Patagonia Guidewater Duffel for Fly Fishing Travel


The recent innovations from Patagonia in their travel bags have resulted in a line up of luggage that serve outdoors enthusiasts very well. Such excellence is further evident in their Guidewater Duffel.

Among key features of the Guidewater Duffel, is a divider that keeps waders, boots, lines, and other wet items from getting to the rest of your gear as well as rod tube holders and water resistant sides and zippers.

From Patagonia:

“For serious angling expeditions, the Max lives up to its name, hauling maximum gear with grace and efficiency. More importantly, it keeps wet stuff ventilated (preventing the dreaded “stink waders”) and away from your dry goods with a coated floating baffle. Made with a tough 840-denier double polyurethane-coated nylon fabric. High-airflow mesh, coated water-resistant zippers, rod tube attachment points, an adjustable padded split shoulder strap and an external zippered mesh pocket combine to create the ultimate angler’s duffel. For added security, 4-piece rod tubes also fit easily within the Max.”
