I can't rate it a 5 yet since I haven't put it to the test, but I suspect it will be. It seems lighter than a slightly smaller rolling duffel I already own. It is really simple and clean in design, with large side pockets and what I hope is a durable wheel/handle system. There are no accessory pockets on the outside and no shoulder strap - just FYI.

I got this after purchasing a similar product at a local store. It fell apart after 2 uses. I have not used this yet, and to be honest, hate to as it's just too nicely made. However, it is very sturdy, the wheels look solid, and the bag has support, so while rolling down through the airport, it won't have the insides fall to the bottom, causing the fabric to drag on the ground (like the one now in the trash). The size is good. Another thing, with that other bag, it was so big, that there was no way one could fill it up and have it be less than 50 lbs (unless filled with popcorn or pillows). This size looks like it will accommodate the right amount of clothes in terms of quantity, volume, and weight. I will update my review once I've used this on a plane. I got the print, and it's really nice.

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.
