this is our fourth and fifth bag... we got them for our boys and loved them so much we decided to get them for ourselves. Very roomy and light weight, so whether you are carrying or rolling, it's your clothing you are carrying not the weight of the bag.
How accurate was the sizing? great, bigger than expected
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good, simple
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
These bags weigh more than similar high-end bags and are of poorer quality. If you are planning a trip with some abuse to your luggage and don't want a broken strap a week into your month-long travels, I would pick a different bag. Probably fine for regular airline/car travel. I was looking at resistant bags and ended up with Mountain Hardware (water-resistant ) and Osprey (not water-resistant) duffels. North-Face also makes a good one. Sent the Red Canyon duffels back.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Material was thinner than I expected. The straps were stitched well but not reinforced. The zippers were of marginal quality.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? There was a small spot on one bag where the plastic coating was rubbed off.
Gave this to my 11 yr old daughter for Christmas and she's used it on several trips and sleepovers. It fits all of her clothes perfectly for a 4-5 day trip. It's nice because now her things don't take up room in our suitcase and this bag fits under the airplane seat. It's very stylish and so far, after several months, the quality has held up great. The only thing I don't like is the insulated cooler bag on the side. We will probably never use this for drinks or keeping anything cool, we just use it as extra storage for books, clothes, etc for the trip. Would recommend.
