Pack Your Gear in the Cotopaxi Chumpi Del Dia Duffel

Whether you need a bag to tote your gear around your hometown, on a road trip, or on a longer journey, there are more than enough types for you to choose from. Rolling luggage, backpacks, duffels, and totes are all good at carrying your essential items from Point A to Point Z and everywhere in between.

But if there’s one thing we’ve learned this year, it’s that every little thing connects us—kindness, viruses, climate change, and dreams of adventure. If you’re stuck in a baggage rut, where you tend to have only one kind of bag in one kind of color, it’s time for you to check out the Cotopaxi Chumpi Del Dia 35-liter Duffel.

The Chumpi duffel isn’t new for this brand, but it’s been extremely popular, so Cotopaxi has not introduced it in the Del Dia fabric. That means a 100% repurposed 600D polyester body, comprised of high-quality, remnant fabric left over from other companies’ larger production runs. That keeps fabric out of the landfill and lets you have a one-of-a-kind color combination for your bag. No two colorways are the same, so it’s easy to tell which one is yours, instead of trying to locate your suitcase in the sea of black roller bags.

Another cool consideration for each Chumpi Del Dia duffel is that the person who makes it—who selects material, zippers, zipper pulls, buckles, and thread—has creative license to choose what they want. So, your bag is a signature of the person who made it for you.

The duffel has tuck-away backpack straps and a removable shoulder sling, so when you’re tired of carrying it by the four reinforced webbing grab handles, you have a few options. There’s an, and The bag’s zippered opening gives you easy access to all your clothing and gear, and there’s also an external zippered stash pocket for the items you need to find quickly.

The Chumpi Del Dia 35-liter Duffel comes in a variety of one-of-a-kind color combinations, and lists for $120 on the Cotopaxi site.
