I was a little skeptical about a rolling duffel bag that I got to replace a regular rolling carrier that broke irrepairably -- when I tried out this new one I was thrilled with it -- it holds more than my old one did and when not in use, saves space in my closet! Very well made and it seems like it will be long-lasting - I highly recommend it.
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.
The Olympia 26” Rolling Duffle has turned out to be one of my better luggage choices. I travel at least 5-10 Days per month. The Olympia Duffle has handled my short-term travel needs brilliantly. I can get a surprised large amount of clothing, shoes and other personal necessities into the Duffle. The rolling feature is a huge plus as it saves my 72-year-old back and knees from having to carry this throughout the airport. It fits nicely in the overhead compartments and is easy to put in/get out. The 8 pockets are just the right size for socks, underwear, swim suit, etc. In addition, the bag looks like the day I pulled it out of the box. A little soapy water and all dirt disappears. All-in-all, this bag was a brilliant purchase.
