This bag is a great size and very well made. I got it in red and love the color. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it smells horrible! I have left it on the large ledge in front of my bay window, wide open and with the breeze blowing threw and it still smells terrible. If you are getting this for a last mintue trip- prepare for a stinky bag!
bought this for my 15 yr old daughter for a cruise trip...it held so much....and she had room leftover...she picked the bright pink so it was easy to spot...there are so many compartments for the little things...make up, hair products, socks, contact solutions, etc....i highly recommend this bag.....this size was great...there was a bigger one but this was perfect...i think the bigger one might have been too hard to manuever around,.
This duffel went to Africa and back and is in top condition to travel on another foreign mission trip! The wheels are great, the special features like zip closure for the handle that pops up and back down, plus the extra pockets on the outside allow for great storage for trips. This bag was used for two weeks and in a tent that had water pouring in and all contents stayed dry and again - the bag held up great! Very pleased!!
I just used the duffel for the first time last weekend. It is so much more spacious than I expected! I could have fit three times the amount if I needed to. I love the various pockets and the color (pink!) While I have not utilized the rollers, they will come in handy next time when I'll pack more things!
this bag is perfect for my vacation plans. lightweight so i can pack more items as the airlines go by weight. ample room for everything. the price was excellent. will purchase another color when it is available. no more bulky suitcases for me!
The bag is a wonder! It is strong and durable, though lightweight. The wheels and handle seem up to the task of carrying textbooks and paper files. Letter size files fit well, with enough room to flip through them easily and load my lunch bag on top. Exterior pockets are great for all the miscellaneous little stuff a teacher takes back and forth to school every day. My colleagues are still lugging totebags, but this is the best money I ever spent and way cheaper than back surgery.
I purchased two of these rolling duffels for our 11 day / 10 night trip to Walt Disney World. The size was perfect to use as checked luggage because you could stuff them to the gills and still not exceed the weight limit. We packed for approximately 6 days each and had plenty of room for extras. Overall they seem well constructed and traveled well with us. No damage to either bag on our departing or returning flight. The only complaint I would really have is they smelled pretty bad when they first arrived from Overstock. I think this is because of what they are constructed of. I left them in our garage for a few days with a few bounce sheets in them, and when we left the odor was much less, but still there. I did not notice our clothes smelling though, so that was good. I think for a casual traveler, like myself, these bags are a good fit. I don't know how well they would hold up for someone who travels frequently though. The price was right and I am satisfied with this purchase.
We purchased this bag for frequent road trips where we needed flexible storage and packing. The exterior pockets are easily accessible, which is greatly appreciated when getting items out of the back of the vehicle . It would be great if they were padded, but at this price, padding was not expected. When packed and upright the bag does not stand up on its own unless the handles are velcroed together. The wheels and frame appear to be well-made, time will tell how durable it is. I would recommend it to others.
This was purchased as a hockey bag for a very small player, who wanted to be able to lug her own equipment. It is perfect and well-constructed. Compact, but you can cram in a lot of stuff. It is better made than a lot of equipment bags we have here in the family (all five of us play hockey), particularly the zippers. It appears that is will be with us for a long time, and once the season is over will be perfect to use for luggage. . .
Very pleased. Got one for each of our children. Lots of pockets, wheels seem sturdy. The handle tucks away neatly in a zippered slot. It is roomier that expected. Always a little leery to purchase something without first giving it a once-over, but this was a good purchase. My only dislike was that all the colors shown in the ad were not available
i was looking for a carryon bag and that's what this was listed as...but way too big to carry on. There are specific measurements for carryon luggage, that i wasn't really aware of, so i took their word for it. Beside that fact it was a good deal and looks pretty sturdy so i am keeping it anyway...i now need to go out and buy someting else for my upcoming trip. I think the description was a little misleading.
