    You can absolutely fit diving gear in it. The fins have their own pockets in the outside, and the rest of the bag has lots of space. I don’t have the Mako one, I have a Cressi one, and I can fit a full set of dive gear in it no problem. it’s more like a giant dry bag as opposed to the Mako.

    I use a solid 120l scubapro bag with some foam wrapped around the handle straps and ziptied put the wet suit in the top and it's pretty OK for comfort...

    they all suck...
    1) They are SMALL - 50L or less. Not enough space to get the full dive gear set (BCD, suit, regs, fins, etc)
    2) Harness: no harness at all, or some soft with no back support harness. Maybe (!) except Erawan Travel Duffle Backpack with nice padded back. But again it is too small only 70L. Also Maxpedition Fliegerduffel seems nice, but it is SMALL - handy carry size bag. no way to feet all gear inside.

    again a good DUFFEL! but i dont see ANY harness on GORILLA PRO XL.
    I would definitely get this one if you transport your gear in the car or keep in on the board of the ship. but how do you carry it thru airport, etc for long distances?!

    yeah, i know that one. but it has wheels! for what?! without hard bottom wheels are useless if bag is not fully packed. they just add weight.... i would def exchange those wheels for a nice harness.

    It’s not the Gorilla Pro XL. I’m not sure of the name. It definitely has shoulder straps and a waist belt, it’s not a duffel bag.

    maybe they dont make it anymore, as there are no more any those type of bags on Cressi HP.
