THULE SUBTERRA DUFFEL
The Thule Subterra Duffel 60L is the ideal duffel choice for lives with multiple demands. On this 72-hour mission (or family trip), you may want to hit the gym or just toss a duffel in a truck rather than use a suitcase.

Keb trousers exude 007 style while conducting daily errands or enjoying dinner with the wife, but are also built for action like scaling, perilous rock faces.
