I have used this carry-on duffle bag for a few trips now and it seems to hold up well. It is roomy and I haven't had any trouble getting it into overhead bins. The wheels and handle are high quality. I only wish there were some outside pockets to keep smaller items separate from the rest of my things.
I purchased this bag for a 3 week trip to Europe last July. It was the only luggage I used and I was so happy with it. I was able to pack plenty of summer clothes, along with some dressy clothes for an event I attended. It was such an effortless piece. Stands on end without falling over and there was even room for all the souvenirs I brought back. After all the traveling I did it still looks brand new. The wheels roll like a dream and I like that there was an interior zipper for access to the framework. I used this zippered area as a secret compartment for valuables. My friends took the typical 2 piece luggage sets and I think they envied me..
My main criteria when looking at rolling bags was the weight. The moment I took this out of the box, I knew it was heavier than the 4.5 lbs advertised. I got out my travel scale and it registered at 5.4, almost a whole pound heavier. I know nine-tenths of a pound isn't much, and this is still very lightweight compared to many, but I was disappointed. Now, I have to say this bag looks like it is going to hold a lot; it is bigger and roomier than I expected. Also, the padded handle grip will make it easier to carry when necessary. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase; just wish it was the 4lbs, 8oz, as advertised.
How accurate was the sizing? It is heavier than advertised.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality. Good material.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes.
It is difficult to pack, because it does not stand alone unless you have to hold the sides when packing.
However, at least this one did not get ripped like the larger size.
I am not happy with Saks "supposedly" light duffel bags.

I was disappointed in the product since the materials ripped in 3 places ON THE VERY FIRST FLIGHT that i took it on. If Delta baggage handling can rip 3 holes in it, then the other airlines were bound to destroy it. As a carry on, it was very light. But it cannot go thru normal baggage handling when it is full. I exchanged it for another VERY tough *** bag made out of stronger material and just as light as this one.
If you're looking for a very light carry-on, then get it. If your going to use it as real luggage and send it thru as baggage, then expect it to be destroyed.
I bought this bag 2 years ago & love it. I've used it all around the world...
But with airlines tightening their carry-on restrictions, just beware. In Europe, it will not be accepted as carry-on luggage as they tend towards smaller bags - especially on low-cost airlines like Ryan Air.
And when I used it a couple of weeks ago to go to Hawaii from L.A. on a U.S. airline, they tried to get me to check it. I refused & it fit - but was warned that they would be getting stricter about sizes.
It's just a tad to big to fit in the measuring stands for carry-on bags which is a shame... Because I travel so much, I will now have to go for something a bit smaller.
But it's still great for check-in luggage.... Holds tons & is lightweight.
P.S. - I also have the 31" which I love for 3 week trips. Too large for 10 days (for me)...
I am using this bag for a 12-night trip to Europe in November. I travel often and am very efficient at packing. This bag has so much capacity for it's size. I have practice-packed and can fit everything I need into this bag, including an A.Saks 22-inch collapsible carry-on, stuffed on the inside edge, which I will fill with souvenirs and check on the return. This 20-inch bag is well stitched, has great wheels and a sturdy pull-out handle. I bought one for my husband who is 6'2", and also bought a Travelon handle extender, since I read the handle on this 20-inch rolling duffel was too short. It appears to be pretty long to me with 2-settings. I am 5'4" and do like the bag fully extended so perhaps the handle extender was a good call.
This bag will be perfect since it does not need to be checked. It is lightweight for train travel. I will also be able to easily stuff it under my bed on my river cruise boat after unpacking since it actually folds down when not filled. I am not sure how it will hold up yet, but am eager to rest it out in 6-weeks.
I bought 2 of these rolling duffle bags for my son's as Christmas gifts. They were excited to receive them and anxious to use them for our vacation. They appear roomy and are light enough to carry or roll, which ever way you choose.
How accurate was the sizing? Perfect!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears to be a high quality item, we'll see how well it holds up during use.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No defects found.
Another website lists this bag (same model) as being 5.8 pounds, in contrast to your description of 4.8 pounds. Could you check the weight?handywoman2 on Dec 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
When the bag is expended (not the full expansion) what are the dimensions ie/ the height and width. Also does the bottom of the bag which encases the rolling mechanism is this a hard plastic or the Denier Nylon. Please advise. All other rolling duffles that we own when we attempt to put them up the the overhead compartments on smaller planes if the rolling mechanism is encased in a hard plastic they sometimes will not fit.cmayzell on Nov 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The dimensions are 20 x 11.5x 11.5 inches(+5 inch expansion)
The pull up handle system on the bag it embedded inside the body of the suitcase so there no hard plastic wrapping around from the outside.

All that is listed is Denier Nylon. Is it 600 or 1200 Denier or possibly higher?maniac68 on May 31, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The Denier Nylon on the AE-20W is 420D Nylon. It is a high-quality, lightweight piece.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 6, 2012
Does the handle extend far enough out so that a 6'1" man can comfortably pull it without it toppling over? on May 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, the handle is long enought without a doubt. We actually sold 6 of them to players for the NY Knicks about a month ago. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

When emptied does this bag collapse and fold fairly flat? I will have to stow it on a 35' sailboat while cruising.kathyginger on Mar 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
