We usually drive for ski trips, but this time we flew. We bought two bags, one for each child. Each bag held junior-size snow boots, ski boots, helmet, jacket&pants, long underwear, gloves, all their clothes, toiletries, and anything else they brought for a week of skiing. Even crammed in one adult ski boot in each bag. So the size was good. The bag weighs about 9 lbs, but even so, we didn't go over the weight limit.
It rolls easily and quiety. The striped pattern is easily identifiable at the luggage carousel. The bag stands up on end without a problem. The zippers worked pretty easily. I wish the straps were an inch or so longer -- when fully packed, you have to pull hard to close the velcro around the straps.
We've used the bags for just one trip, so I can't comment on durability. But having wheels was much easier than our old duffels, which do not. Not sure if we'll like the wheels as much when we're driving and not flying.
