A cavernous duffel bag that's ready to cheerfully lend a hand in schlepping gear to your next adventure.

17 - 71 liters / 1050 - 4330 cu. in.

TLDR

The Yeoman Duffel Bag is a capacious duffel bag, cheerfully ready to schlep gear for your next adventure. It’s likely to become your #1 go-to bag for road trips, camping, and for handling excess gear that needs to fly as checked luggage.

  • Unlike other TOM BIHN bags, which are made from flawless 1050d ballistic, the Yeoman is made of fabric that is what we call “seconds”; fabric that may have cosmetic blemishes which do not impact its utility or durability.
  • Comfortable handles
  • A big open space
  • Four sizes from "pretty small" to "real big"

Full Description

 

Seconds but Not Seconds Durability

The Yeoman is built entirely from our U.S.-made 1050 denier high-tenacity Ballistic nylon—but unlike other TOM BIHN bags, which are made from flawless 1050d ballistic, the Yeoman is made of fabric that is what we call “seconds”; fabric that may have cosmetic blemishes which do not impact its utility or durability.

Here’s the thing: we are perfectionists around here, and what our fabric inspectors consider “seconds” isn’t necessarily what our fabric mills would consider seconds. When we receive ballistic nylon with flaws, it’s ours to keep: because we are one of the last consumers of domestic 1050 ballistic, our mills no longer accept returned goods. We don't receive much flawed fabric, but we've been saving up what we do get, waiting for the right idea to come along. And so it has: the Yeoman Duffel.

So it's highly likely that you will find some small cosmetic blemishes somewhere on your Yeoman Duffel, which may include irregular shading, a streak or lighter colored yarn, a small "slub" (a knot or thick spot in the yarn), or some unevenness in the urethane coating. These blemishes or flaws are strictly cosmetic in nature, and will not impact the Yeoman's utility or durability. These peculiarities are inconsistent and will vary from bag to bag, meaning no two will be exactly alike. This also means that while you can choose the color of your Yeoman Duffel, we cannot tell you what its unique personality will be: it's 100% potluck (kind of exciting, eh?).

Grab Handles Galore

The humble Yeoman has features that are more or less common to duffel bags, but with TOM BIHN attention to detail, materials, and aesthetics. Two-inch webbing handles snap together with a padded palm grip, top dead center; under that, a generous hatch opens wide with a #10 double slider zipper for easy access. When the time come to dislodge the Yeoman from an over-stuffed car trunk or baggage carousel, simple webbing loop handles on either end make it easy. Our proprietary, heavy-duty shoulder strap attachment points are ready to accept any shoulder strap you have around, or any of ours: for a bag that can get this heavy, we recommend the über-comfortable Absolute Shoulder Strap.

A Simple Duffel with Tough Construction

The humble Yeoman has features that are more or less common to duffel bags, but with TOM BIHN attention to detail, materials, and aesthetics. Two-inch webbing handles snap together with a padded palm grip, top dead center; under that, a generous hatch opens wide with a #10 double slider zipper for easy access.  There are no pockets inside or out to confuse things, though there are five O-ring tether points: if you really want organization you can add some Organizer Pouches. The usual finished seams and stout bartacks complete the details.

The Sizes and How We've Used Them

Mini: Great for Car Gear (first aid and second aid pouches, snacks, chargers, sunscreen, water bottles. It can also be used as a basic needs overnight bag with a change of clothes, a few toiletries, and a phone charger. It's also the perfect size for hauling kid treasures: favorite blankets and stuffies nestle right in, and it's so easy to pop in Travel Stuff Sacks full of building blocks, card games, or any other little diversions).

Small: We know folks who use the Yeoman Duffel, Size Small as a golf bag or a small gym bag. We've used ours to pack food supplies for trips to the cabin. It's also great as a family day trip bag: pack your sunscreen, jackets, hats, binoculars, tablets, coloring books/art supplies, snacks, and be on your way.

Medium: The Medium is a great size for two people to share as a travel bag: let your stuff co-mingle, or use color-coded Packing Cubes to keep "mine" separate from "yours."

Large: We used our Yeoman Duffel, Size Large to pack and check on our flight (those lockable luggage sliders came in handy!) a three-person tent, four sleeping bags, four sleeping pads and a first-aid-kit for a trip to Yellowstone National Park. It can also hold enough linens for a queen sized bed: sheets, duvet/comforter, and two pillows—perfect for toting to family reunions or holiday gatherings when you know there won't be enough bedding to go around.

    A Light and Durable Duffle Bag

    I have the small and mini Yeoman Duffles. I had initially planned to only purchase the small since the size seemed to better fit my needs but I blacked out and bought both though I don’t regret it. I took the small on a trip recently (pictured). It’s the perfect size for 2 to 3 days of clothes and doesn’t get too heavy because of its small size and lightweight materials. The zippers are beefy and sturdy and it feels good to use. I also like that they fold down pretty flat when not in use. I haven’t had a chance to use the mini yet but it’s just adorable

    Very nice duffel

    This is my 3rd bag from Tom Bihn, my family really enjoys Tom Bihn bags. I have an aeronaut and another duffel, all made with the same material. We really enjoy the quality and look. Keep up the good work!

    Also, I have owned 3 minimalist wallets, absolutely hands down my everyday carry.

    Perfect for what it is

    I needed a simple, durable, single compartment bag to bring to the gym and overnight trips. This fit the bill perfectly, and I get compliments on it all the time. I love it!

    Everything fits!

    This is the most versatile duffel bag ever! I got the small size (28L) in Coyote 1050 Ballistic, which not only looks rugged, but also fits everything I need for a week stay. I used a Packing Cube Shoulder Bag for my underclothes, and a size 1 travel stuff sack for my shawl/scarf. Toiletries, earbuds, charger, cable, powerbank and other knickknacks all fit into the Travel Tray. Clothes are stacked on one end of the duffel, and the Travel Tray plus Stuff Sack on the other end, with the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag acting as a divider in between. There's still space for other items (eg. My trusty Side Kick which is my handbag). I absolutely love this small Yeoman Duffel! ❤️❤️❤️

    Useful and well constructed

    I missed the pre-order, so when some extras were offered, I snapped up a small, a medium, and a large in whatever colors were available. It felt like a big splurge and I didn't really have a planned use for them at the time, but I knew they would be useful at some point. Turns out they all were super handy immediately. The small one is a perfect size & color to carry my roller skates and protective gear. The medium (in coyote) was a perfect gift for my 25 y/o son. And the large (verde) has been co-opted by my 19 y/o daughter for moving and for travel - it truly holds a ton. I'm happy I ordered the shoulder strap, though it isn't necessary if your load is light. The quality of materials and workmanship in the TB bags make them a great investment. My favorite part is the zippers - they are strong & move smoothly, and the seams are finished in such a way that the zippers will never catch on loose fabric or threads inside the bag. There's no compartments or extra pockets - it's just the capacious bag with awesome handles - I will totally order more of these to have on hand if they do another production run.

Sewn in Seattle

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new.

You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
