This is by far the best rolling duffel I've ever owned. I've had bags that cost six times the retail price of this one give out in two or three ten-day European trips. The wheels hold up well, unlike those on similar Delsey bags. It rolls easily as long as you squirt some WD-40 on the axles before your first trip. The best part is that it's the lightest I've found, only 6.5 pounds. I haven't found anything lower than 7.5 lately and every pound counts when you're going on a long trip. The only cons are that it's a little small in cubic inches of volume and there's no handle on the bottom end to allow someone to help you get up stairs.
