Aldi runs a nonstop parade of Adventuridge camping products in the late spring and early summer, from tents to bags. In the second category are a pair of foldable products: a foldable backpack and this product, a foldable duffle.
The Adventuridge Lightweight Foldable Duffle Bag is what the name says it is. It’s a duffle bag that can be folded into a compact pouch:
The duffle is easy enough to unpack, and not too hard to repack back into its compact position, although it took a bit more time for us to figure this one out compared to folding the Adventuridge Lightweight Foldable Backpack. Even so, with a bit of practice it’s not hard to fold this one, even with no real instructions included on how to do it.
It has a few small features worth mentioning. The unpacked duffle has a side pocket (which also is where it folds back into), a zippered main compartment, two carry handles that can be brought together with a velcro binding, and a shoulder strap, attached with clips, that includes a shoulder pad. There are also mesh pockets on each end of the duffle, although they are small.
Fully unfolded, the duffle measures about 20.8 inches long (roughly 1 foot, 9 inches), 9.4 inches wide, and about 10.8 inches tall. It is indeed lightweight, weighing 0.6 pounds. That makes it a decent, if not large, duffle bag. We wouldn’t want to load it it down anyway; although it’s made of nylon, it’s pretty thin fabric — almost translucent — and we’re not sure it would hold up well under a lot of weight. Our kids have used the bag for trips when they’ve been gone for several nights, and it works fine for those times.
We like it better than the disappointing Adventuridge Lightweight Foldable Backpack, but know going into it that this isn’t a heavy-duty duffle, although it also is capable of folding into something small enough to stuff into a larger purse. If that’s the kind of bag you’re looking for, this might be worth your time.
