I got this small leather duffel bag for my husband for our 3rd wedding anniversary- the year of leather! He absolutely loved the bag, it is perfect lightly packed weekend trip. The end pockets add some extra room for shoes/ toiletries.
We bought the hot pink and dark lavender rolling duffels for our daughters' first airplane trip. We went to Florida for four days and packed two children's and two adults' worth of clothes and accoutrements in these two bags with a little bit of room to spare. They fit in the overhead compartment of the airplane just fine and we weren't hassled by the airline staff about potential size issues. I can't speak to the long term wear of the duffel bags because we've only had them for a few months and used them for the one trip so far. Original review May 2011, update April 2016. We've continued to use these rolling duffels for 1-2 trips a year since we originally purchased them. They've held up very well. I was just thinking today that I should buy two more for our other children. I highly recommend them.
I've used this duffel bag on several trips. It's bigger than most duffels I've seen, which is what I was looking for. There's plenty of room for packing for a long weekend or even longer. With all the compartments everything is organized and easy to get to. Wheels on the bag is a bonus, easy to get around.
