We took at peek at three new bags from Roark for when it’s time to pack up and explore: The Missing Link, the Crux 3 Day Pack and the Crater Duffle.
This bag scores points for its simplicity, durability and ease-of-use. There are no extraneous features or extra pockets and straps; it’s just super simple. We also really liked the techy waterproof PVC Tarpaulin shell material and the solid seam construction.
Dimensions: 27" H x 14" W x 5.5" D
Holds 25 liters
50C printed PVC Tarpaulin shell
A great hybrid travel backpack and laptop carrier. Holds a lot and is really smartly designed. The pockets are non-obtrusive and well-placed. However, none of the storage places are waterproof, so wet items will have to be placed in a waterproof bag before being placed in the Crux 3 Day Pack. That said, it’s perfect for a weekend jaunt and has enough room for clothes and surf gear.

We liked the simplicity of opting for a duffle on your next surf trip, especially if you have a lot of gear to stow. It is also one of the most stylish duffle bags out on the market.
