I bought this bag for trips to and from Europe. It is very light weight so you are not using up 20% of your weight limit on luggage. Because it is so light (even the material feels light) I can't say how long it will last having to stand up to baggage handlers. It is not as big as I expected - it is tall rather than wide which feels a bit odd. I think the drop bottom may take away some usable space. Now that i have it I will keep it but i think I would have preferred one big compartment and for the bag to be a bit wider.
The duffle bag appears to be well made with excellent materials and stitching. The bag overall is very light compared to others of similar design. Since I only received it recently and have not used it to travel through the airlines baggage handling system its difficult to say whether it will hold up well. I had a similar bag go through the baggage handlling system and come through severely ripped exposing the contents. I like the design but would prefer more side pockets.
The price is right and the size is sufficient to carry you through a week or more travel without having to wash your clothes. I will give it higher rating once I have at least one travel experience with it.
Although not study enough to be my main travel bag, this bag held up very well on the journey from New York to London. Everything I packed arrived in tact. Thanks to the advice of another member, I made sure to pack the bottom layer well to prevent any shifting. I look forward to using the bag on my next trip.
Bought this item for an international trip. Has a lot of space - the bottom section works well for sneakers, etc. It is easy to pull, and if you don't over pack it will balance itself. It survived the baggage carriers who just throw the luggage. As usual Overstock delivered on time, and the price was just right!
I bought this bag specifically for going to SWAT school. I was there for a week and it was big enough to hold all the clothes I would need on and off duty. There are plenty of outside pockets for smaller things like hygiene items. The boot/shoe compartment came in real handy also. The item description didn't do this bag justice. I am more than happy with this item and am considering buying another!!
The price for this duffel is great but the quality is no bueno. This duffel would be good for light traveling but it does not stand up to plane travel. I got this for my husband for our trip to Costa Rica and the zipper busted on the way there!
Thank you for contacting us bhtang. This bag doesn't have an Adjustable/Detachable Shoulder Strap. As per our 2013 catalog, this feature is available on the smaller 26 inches Duffel only.
