I bought this because the zipper on my other bag broke, I was headed on a business trip and really didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new one. When I researched this bag on the web they had listed it as a "ladies" bag. Not sure why. Maybe the pattern on the bag? Just looks like a black duffel to me and it rated the best of all my options for price and sturdiness. I bought. The bag is very well made and easily survived being checked onto the flights, being tossed around by the shuttle drivers, being thrown around by me into the back of the rental, etc. Handle pops in and out of the bag easily and seems very secure. Rolls well. Stands up on it's end even though it is a duffel style. Had not really looked at DaKine stuff before but the quality of this piece means I will watch for other items by them. Buy with confidence. And it you are a guy there is nothing about this bag, at least the black one, that shouts "ladies only".

This will be my third Dakine bag of this style that I have purchased. The first one I've had for almost 7 years and still looks like new. The hard plastic L shaped frame can take some serious abuse. I've deployed with this style bag twice and still no issues whatsoever. Well worth the price!
