Elements: Dual Threats

Two for the price of one. Who can't get behind a premise like that? We're not talking about Corona-themed tank tops hocked in Cancun to the fanny-packed masses here (but...still). We're talking about those rare multi-tasking gems that force you to reassess what's possible in this day and age. The best of the dual-threat bunch become icons, whether real -- the Swiss Army Knife, Bo Jackson -- or imagined -- a Delorean turned time machine. Most at least make the rest of your possessions look useless in comparison. In some cases their genius stems from clever hacks that seem obvious in hindsight; in others, the magic comes from years of groundbreaking research and technological progress. This is a celebration of versatile items from all walks of life. May your future purchases forever be multi-talented.

What follows are 30 of the best duffel bags to fit every budget. These represent a vast array of materials, styles, colors and purposes, but suffice it to say each of these duffels is just right.

Travelteq Voyager Bag

The best way we can sum up the Travelteq Voyager ($770) is to label it FTBT (for travelers by travelers). Yes, we just made that up, but that’s exactly what this bag is all about. Combining the attention to details commonly found in tier one bags with the no-nonsense functionality of a duffel bag, the...
