    New sizes to the Yeoman SOOO cute

    Ok I might have gone a bit crazy here. Sadly no sunshine today, but here go the knew sizes:

    This are ALL the sizes, the bigest one is "old" though.

    And here the smalles Yeoman than the NFTD (Nightflight Travelduffel) in the middle and the next size Yeoman for better comparison.

    As I started to try and pack as minimal as posslibe when traveling by plane this looks like moving house to me know. Though admitadly: when we go by car... we tent to pack a LOT (including our duvets and a ton of stuffed animals for the girls)

    @Ilkyway,

    If you have the Night Flight Travel Duffle, can you do a comparison? Because my estimate is that the Small Size Yeoman Duffel is the closest to the NFTD -- similar cross section (can fit a Clear Quarter Packing Cube).

    Hi All,

    I'm much more excited about the family of Yeoman Duffels than I expected -- this is a great size bag for all the kids to take to their dance classes/swimming/judo/soccer practice, etc. and for moms and dads who are driving them around. It scales up to the size of the equipment and activity, is durable, and collapses pretty flat.

    And, for those of you who need to carry around toys -- the large, stuffed kind for your kids/pets/etc. this is absolutely wonderful. I used to wonder about all the people who would get onto the plane at Miami with huge stuffed animals and purchases (Walt Disney world, and shoppers going back to points in South America). Well, if you need storage that is light weight, durable, and that expands to hold everything you come back with -- especially items like large stuffed animals that are bulky but light -- this is the bag for you!

    I'm going to probably see the most use from the Mini -- since my shoes fit entirely in the length, and the cross-section holds a Moleskine journal, or iPad Mini, etc. I'd really like to see an evaluation/review from someone who has the NFTD!

    ETA: I notice they change the photos on the product page over time, and that some pictures I like either go away later, or aren't shown on debut day but later turn up (for a while). Here's one that I like that shows the use of the Yeoman Duffel for stuffed toys:

    moriond I am with you, these knew sizes cover like EVERY packing needs. I agree, that the smalles one compares best to the NFTD, but so that everybody can judge for themselfs I put it inbetween the two smallest Yeomen in the last picture first post.

    My girls have kind of stolen away my and my husbands NFTD for car travel (they can get away even for a week with that size as their clothes are smaller). I already had decided to order two more as it is my faverit car travel bag. But now I will play with the Yeomen first, they might very well fill the void.

    I think that the multi-sized Yeoman Duffel family will also work for some folks who liked the NFTD design, but had problem with shoes. On the other hand, it doesn't have the same degree of organization, but for some purposes not having the divider between center compartment and sides makes it easier to reconfigure.

    Also, for anyone who might be worried about this -- the Steel color in these Duffels has no greenish undertones. That was one of the things I worried about in the original Yeoman Duffel batch, since there was one old batch of Steel Ballistic Nylon that had greenish tones (back in 2014).

    The stack of 3 aubergine bags looks like a sad snowman.

    I am so smitten with these, and really want to try one of each. I also LOVE the leaning tower of duffels!

    Thanks so much for the comparisons, Ilkyway. Surprisingly, the new travel duffle sizes are the most exciting feature of the debut today. (I thought it would be the Side Kick.) I've been looking for a music bag for my stand, footstool and sheet music, and I think that the small may work. Will have to measure when I get home from work.

    As I recall, you have an unusually large music stand (according to the Clear Organizer Pouch and Bag Use for Musicians thread -- yours was 23" folded, and mine was 17"!). You'll probably need the Medium Size Duffel if that length is correct, unless there's enough room to angle in your stand diagonally.

    Glad that you looked that up moriond, as I couldn't remember. I don't know why mine is extra large--it is a standard el cheapo stand used by high school band students. At any rate, will do some more measuring tonight--it is soft sided, but I may be able to use a yeoman to transport my travel dulcimer in a carry on, in addition to using it as a musicians bag for practice.

    Thanks for the link. Really enjoyed it. Made me think of Russian nesting dolls. Never really considered a yeoman duffel, but with several choices, I will rethink that.
