The XS Scuba Voyager 60 Roller Duffel Bag looks really fancy and valuable and rightfully earns our Design Award 2024. It will fit an entire scuba gear set for your next diving vacation and we especially like the extra cinch strap to prevent breaking the zipper!
It has LOTS of handles on every side which is great at the airport when you just need to quickly grab the bag somehow. We just wish the handles were metal rather than plastic. The dive bag has a good weight to it and all of it just seems well thought out.

First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

The first thing you notice when unwrapping the Voyager 60 is that it looks nice. It’s the same feeling that I got when I upgraded from my old rusty hiking backpack to a higher-end Deuter one.

It makes you want to go diving with it. I think that’s a good thing.

The second aspect that immediately pops up is the number of different handles on this dive bag.

I mean…there is a handle on every side plus a telescoping one. Plus the shoulder straps to wear it like a backpack.

The inside is large and spacious and gives you plenty of space to pack your scuba gear. I maybe would’ve liked to see a stronger protective buckle as my suits are on the larger side.

I really like the extra cinch straps as this removes some pressure and strain from the outside zipper.

The extra pockets and pouches are well thought out and I don’t think there is anything I could criticize here.

The only thing I would like to see different are metal instead of plastic rings to attach extra gear to.

  1. Hi Julius,

    I read your review on the XS SCuba Voyager 60 and wonder if the bag comes with plastic rings instead of metal ones because the product promise is to be rust-free even after post-trip hosing? I am shopping for a roller dive bag and will appreciate if you have insights to share on whether metal rings in the construct of other dive bags can withstand the exposure to salt water and damp environment. Hope to hear from you. Thank you.


    1. Hey Dawn
      thanks for your comment!
      The version I use has plastic rings so they cannot rust even after salt water exposure. I also haven’t heard of any recent design changes in that regard so they should still be the same. This makes them really lightweight in comparison to some other bags out there. I use my Voyager 60 when diving in saltwater, but also when doing underwater work in the area in pools etc.
      I would still recommend hosing it down and letting it dry before storing it away!

      As to other dive bags: I haven’t had any of my other dive bags become rusty, even those with metal rings. Aqualung, Scubapro, Mares, Cressi, etc. all make quality products.

  2. Hi Julius, appreciate your fast response! I had an Akona dive roller bag (discontinued now) which served me well for about 8 years of hard travel. Unfortunately, the road adventure gear bag that I replaced it with was a letdown. After not traveling for 2 years because of the pandemic, the roller wheels have degraded to broken pieces and the zipper rusted from being in storage. The bag has a grand record of making just 1 journey. Well, given the humid weather where I am at, it is probably best to look at dive bags built with damp condition in mind. Thank you for sharing the list of bag recommendations. I’ll check it out 🙂


    1. Hi Dawn,
      if you live in very humid weather it indeed makes sense to look for something that stays rust-free!
      All the ones we listed on our “best of dive bags” post have been in use for at least 2+ years and show no sign of breaking. That’s why I recommend going for an actual “dive bag” instead of oversized “normal” travel bags. Scuba brands put extra care into making them durable for our purposes.

      Beside the Voyager 60, you should check out the Cressi Moby 5 and the Aqualung Explorer II! I use both of them A LOT and I think if you liked the Akona before, they are great alternatives.
