Duffbag customer on tour -skiing Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps
01/03/2011

This is Gordon, one of our very first customers for duffbag, he likes the bags so much that he has come back and purchased three, plus two of our messenger bags! Here is Gordon on his latest expedition to Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps

Our bags are really useful for stashing wet ski kit, or boots, keeping your chalet or vehicle clean and dry, simply step out of your boots and use the changing mat to change into dry kit or stash your snowy wet aprés ski boots and stop treading snow and melt water into your appartment.

We sometimes get asked if you can use a duffbag for snowboarding gear, the answer is yes, but the snowboard itself won’t quite fit, we may make a larger bag to take a snowboard if the demand is there, the following picture demonstrates the problem.

Gordon also likes to use his duffbag for mountain biking trips and worried us a bit as he seemed to be scoping out a trip to Mega Avalanche, which could be good fun but is a pretty hairy mountain bike race down a glacier.

Plus some interesting VTT type routes that would be fun in summer

Duffbag, great bags used by cool people doing cool stuff

Thanks for sharing that with us Gordon, if you have any stories or pictures of your duffbag in use we would love to hear from you. If we feature your story on our blog we will send you a free messenger bag  just email us on enquiries@duffbag.com and we will do the rest.
