Design and Durability

On one side, we have the RUX 70L, boasting a sleek soft-shell exterior that's both stylish and rugged. Its modern design can take on rough handling and withstand water exposure with ease. In the other corner, the Thule Chasm 70L enters with a no-nonsense heavy-duty design, featuring reinforced stress points and robust fabrics. It's a classic face-off between style and sheer toughness.

Storage Space

The RUX 70L and Thule Chasm 70L both pack a hefty 70 liters of storage capacity. They're ready to accommodate all your camping gear, clothing, and essentials for your outdoor journeys. It's a tie in this round, with both contenders offering ample room for your adventures.

Portability and Carrying

In terms of portability, the RUX 70L takes the lead with its modular carry straps that offer multiple carry options – backpack, shoulder, or tote style. It's also impressively lightweight at under 5lbs when empty. On the flip side, the Thule Chasm 70L offers versatile carrying with removable backpack straps and grab handles. It's a close call, but the RUX 70L's versatility takes the spotlight.

When it comes to versatility, the RUX 70L shines. It's not just a gear storage solution; it's a multi-purpose container that can function as a dry storage box, camp kitchen, gear organizer, and more. Meanwhile, the Thule Chasm 70L is a formidable gear hauler but might find it challenging to match the RUX's adaptability.

Weatherproof Companion

When you're out in the great outdoors, you need gear that you can rely on. The RUX 70L is made from a fully waterproof 840D TPU material, so you can trust that your gear is protected from dust, dirt and water.

The Thule Chasm 70L is primarily made of durable, water-resistant materials such as rugged nylon and reinforced fabrics. While these materials offer a level of durability, they might not provide the same level of waterproof protection as the specialized waterproof materials used in the construction of the RUX 70L.

Price and Value

Both contenders come with premium price tags that reflect their durability and features. However, the RUX 70L offers excellent value with its unique design, modular system, and lifetime warranty.
