Staff Picks: Camping Bags June 25, 2021 – Posted in: New Products, Tips, Travel – Tags: , , ,

Following up from our Best Bags for Camping blog, in our first Staff Picks, we ask Bags Only’s seasoned staff to give you the lowdown on the best camping bags available in-store and online.

Kosciusko Trek

Bags Only Southland staff found the Kosciusko Trek to be the best camping bag, not only for outdoor use but for kids camps and sporting activities.  The versatility and price point making the Trek the perfect choice for family campers.

The Trek is a deluxe ultralight split compartment duffle bag.  It’s strong and sturdy and will handle whatever your trip throws at it. The split compartments allow you separate your items more easily, whilst large end pockets also provide additional storage options. Given the bag has a top loading compartment, you can easily access items whilst your bigger items remain protected in the lower compartment. The size (72cm) is perfect for fitting everything you need in.  100 litres (volume) is sufficient for any travelling party and the trolley handle and straps allow the choice for drag or carry. We did mention versatility, this wheel bag is not to big for those grade 6 students attending camp or lugging all your kids sporting equipment to and from home.

Currently selling at $89.95 – and available in three styles this is our choice!

We have a large range of duffle bags and suitcases in stock that are ideal for camping and particularly ideal for school camps.
