HOW IS THIS DUFFEL BAG DIFFERENT?
The Expedition series duffel bags were redesigned to meet your unique sports and recreation oriented carry-on legal packing and traveling preferences. With the same exterior dimensions and capacity as the airline approved PR5 Safari Beano, the Flying Boxcar is a bottom padded sports bag that differs by featuring an extra-long central main compartment so you can carry your scuba fins, camera tripod or hyper zoom lens on the plane with you when you fly out for your safari holiday.
A LARGE PADDED STORAGE COMPARTMENT FOR YOUR BELONGINGS.
This main compartment features a Volara foam padded bottom, which allows the Flying Boxcar bag to maintain shape when you don't have it filled to the top (should you want to shop and return home with some souvenirs). And the extra peace of mind regarding protecting expensive and fragile bulky items you may pick up or take along on your adventure doesn't hurt. Secure your goods with the double zippered lid and steel twin turn locks.
You'll thank us a thousand times over for the grab loops on both ends while yanking the bag from an overhead bin, or pulling it easily in-and-out of a vehicle during an overlanding or roadtrip adventure. Ballistic nylon skid plate on the bottom gives years of worry-free use while sliding around loading docks, pickup beds or dirty car trunks.
JUST ROLL WITH IT.
Want to stack it on your wheeled bag? No problem, the back pass-through pocket docking sleeve lets you slip it over the handle bars on your wheeled bag (see additional photos tab) ... or just use it as an extra-long flat side pocket.
ORGANIZE YOUR BELONGINGS.
Twin raised side pockets keep necessities quickly accessible. Both raised pockets zip halfway down their sides for easy access to buried equipment like data storage, adapters, manuals, etc. Monkey Fist Zip Knots and heavy-duty #10 YKK Zippers make opening the compartments a yankin' cinch, yet the self-locking zipper design prevents accidental openings. The detachable and adjustable padded Claw Shoulder Strap allows for easy nonslip shoulder or cross body carrying-- or carry by hand with the nylon webbing handles.

Flying Boxcar trivia: the Flying Boxcar was named after the post-WW II transport aircraft, the Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar. The distinctive design of the Flying Boxcar featured a fuselage that was separate from the engines and the dual tail ailerons located on the wings, leaving the area behind the cockpit to accommodate larger loads. The design allowed more powerful engines and a cargo area uncluttered by landing gear and control cables.
