We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. When it comes to scuba diving and snorkeling, your method of transporting the required equipment is quite important. The gear is not usually cheap, so you’ll want to invest in a quality duffel to protect everything before you travel to your next outing. They come in various styles, from lightweight mesh bags to heavy-duty rolling cases. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

February 11, 2019:

Aside from a few complaints that the heft of the Tusa Roller can make it difficult to use for air travel when it’s loaded with a large amount of gear, it’s a resilient, well-organized duffel that should last for years. Looked into including the Cressi Gorilla on the list, but reports indicate that its durability — from the zippers to the clasps and the base — leaves much to be desired. At less than two pounds in weight, the Sak Gear ScubaSak was one of the lightest options available.
