Notify me when back in stock

Designed to be just as instrumental in helping you achieve what you set out to do as any product we offer.


  • Wherever you're headed
  • Hauling your stuff as long as you need it
  • Travel, meets TSA Carry-On requirements


You could say real adventures start as soon as you’ve left the house and locked the door. But, rarely, the trail or terrain you’re after starts in your front yard, and chances are good there’ll be gear for the proposed pursuit that needs to come with to mile zero. Cue the 30L Approach Duffel and its uncanny ability to comfortably portage unworn, activity-specific clothes, outside-of-the-backpack equipment, or maps, Snickers, and road trip mixtapes. We’re not going to tell you what to load in there, just that you’ll be glad this is the bag you chose to haul it with.

Built with the same waterproof, super-durable Dyneema® Composite Fabrics that we use in many of our backpacks and accessories, this ultralight carryall was designed to be just as relied upon and instrumental in helping you achieve what you set out to do as any product we offer.

Hyperlite Mountain Gear is not about bells and whistles, nonessential features, or the latest trending colors. We manufacture stripped down, high performance gear that’s been dialed in to meet, in as minimalist a manner as possible, the exacting requirements of the people who use it.


Whether you need a vessel to shuttle the gear you'll be wearing, items that won't be in your pack, luxuries and food for base camp, or you're simply looking for an easy bag to carry through an airport, the 30L Approach Duffel, at just a smidge over 16oz | 453.6g, keeps the light vibes you've come to know and love about our gear goin' strong. Convenient internal and external storage pockets and premium materials and hardware just round everything out to perfection.


  • The 30L Approach Duffel and 140L Expedition Duffel are ultralight bags designed for hauling gear.
  • The 30L Approach Duffel and 140L Expedition Duffel are NOT dry bags. Take precautions to prevent gear from getting wet.
  • To ensure contents remain dry regardless of weather conditions, we recommend pairing your Duffel with our Pods and Stuff Sacks to organize internal contents and create an additional layer of protection.


  • Take the time on a dry, sunny day to spot-clean any areas that need it. A soft damp cloth and a mild soap (non-detergent and non-oil based soaps work well, do not bleach). Air-dry by leaving it out to hang-dry. Make sure your duffel is completely dry before long term storage. Click here for more tips.


  • Periodically check your duffel bag’s fabric, pockets, straps, clips, and adjusters for signs of stress or tears and repair any damage before continued use.


  • Store in a dry place, and with minimal fluctuation in temperature if possible.
  • Familiarize yourself with set up for best results and for avoiding potential damage to your Hyperlite Mountain Gear products.


Avoid campsites that present the possibility of avalanches, falling rocks or tree limbs, flash floods, lightning strikes, strong winds, and other potential hazards to reduce the risk of damage or injury. This product is not a toy. To prevent the danger of choking or suffocation, keep this product away from babies and children. 

  • The 30L Approach Duffel is not fireproof.
  • Keep your duffels away from all open flames and heat sources to prevent the possibility of melting or burns from sparks and falling embers.
  • Familiarize yourself with the different adjustments to maximize carrying comfort.
