I originally purchased this bag from another retailer and now, purchasing my 2nd bag from Overstock.com. This bag is very large, offered several compartments of various sizes plus the added bonus of a retractable handle. It survived my 3-week trip to Africa where I visited numerous countries and had to go through various airports and numerous baggage handlers. When I originally purchased it, I didn’t even realize it had a drop-bottom! My 1st bag was purchased for my climbing expedition to Mt. Kili which also included safaris in various African countries. Due to strict weight regulations by the outfitters, extended length of travel and the large amount of gear I needed to carry, I jam packed this duffel with all my items (clothing, hygiene, food, climbing gear, etc.). I put the items in clear travel compression bags then, they fit nicely inside the duffel. As I was a solo traveler, it was important that I could carry all my luggage without the assistance of others (luggage used included this rolling duffel, backpack and base camp bag. This bag survived unscathed the trip from US (via various airports) to Turkey, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia. I’m now using it for trips to the Caribbean where I need to jam pack gear and clothing for my toddler and I. Without a doubt, one of the best investments I’ve made hence my 2nd purchase of the same bag for my husband. I’ve purchased many expensive bags in the past and quite pleased and surprised by the quality of this cost-effective rolling duffel.
I ordered this as a gift for my daughter. She wanted a rolling bag to use for the gym. She loves this because it is really pretty and doesn't look like a guys gym bag!
