It’s a frequent sight: a traveler dumping out personal possessions and redistributing their gear at the check-in counter so a suitcase fits the airline’s weight restrictions. Arc’teryx innovation delivers logical, real-world solutions to the problems adventurers face. The company built its foundation on load carrying, with its innovative Bora backpack in 1994 and in Spring 2018 Arc’teryx proudly enters a new product category with its lightweight wheeled gear haulers.

Efficient by design, extraordinarily lightweight and guaranteed rugged, the V80 and V110 (80L and 110L) Rolling Duffels are built for expeditions that require bringing along extra gear like bulky ski boots, sharp ice tools, helmets, climbing ropes, hardware … and everything else. These duffels are easier to pack, easier to handle, and easier to store. Let the adventures begin.

LOW WEIGHT + HIGH VOLUME

Leveraging an innovative external frame construction that delivers an exceptionally low weight-to-volume ratio (32gr per Liter / V80), the new V Series duffels are designed for efficiently transporting equipment for gear-intensive adventures, allowing travelers to bring more tools with less total luggage weight.

By utilizing a unique external frame, these duffels increase the overall useable capacity without adding material weight, avoiding costly overweight baggage fees without leaving essential gear behind.

“Like all good industrial design, the external form not only looks beautiful, it has many functional benefits,” noted Chris Hodgetts, Arc’teryx design manager, “It makes all hardware accessible and repairable. It eliminates wear points from an internal frame rubbing through exterior material. Finally, it eliminates the need for additional handles and lash points. You can pick up the bag or lash it down from any side using the tubular frame.”

Bonus: Both duffels lay flat when unloaded for easy storage in restricted spaces.

BUILT TO LAST

Designed to survive world travel, exposure and abuse, the V80 and V100 rolling duffels are constructed with 630d high tenacity nylon fabric in the body and reinforced with 690d for advanced protection in critical wear areas.

Fully coated and seam taped for added weather resistance, the V Series duffels are built for impact and abrasion with its strong T6 6061 aluminum external frame. A 30-micrometer hard anodized coating adds next-level protection from scratches, nicks, and dents while 115mm oversized wheels absorb the shock from curbs, gravel and cobblestones with smooth, frictionless rolling. Extremely sturdy and durable tubular feet keep the duffel standing upright and secure when you’re not on the move.

EFFICIENCY BY DESIGN

Shaped by a simple yet minimalist aesthetic, the V Series duffels provide exceptionally efficient interior space thanks to the unique external frame design that removes irregular space inside - increasing useable capacity, without adding material weight. Easy to handle and maneuver, the large U-shaped opening offers complete visibility to the cavernous interior and is sealed with a #8 WaterTight™ coated zipper. Internal compression panels secure the free form interior pocket and one external pocket fits boarding passes and smaller items and features an integrated ID card holder.

SPECIFICATIONS

V80 Rolling Duffel = 3380gr / 7.5lbs

V110 Rolling Duffel = 3500gr / 7.7lbs
