    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.

    No doubt this bag is an excellent deal. Good quality at a good price.
    I have a problem with it though. Had I known , I would not have bought it (too expensive to return). This is a large duffel at 30 in. long. I expected to have this length for storage of items like trekking poles, tent, etc. Not so, the pockets at each end do not open from the inside and therefore take up valuable length need for storage of longer items. Even if one end storage compartment could open to the inside or wasn't there, this bag would be far more usable for the type of travel my wife and I do.
    Also, I will not be able to fit my backpack in it for travel backpacking trips. This is a big deal for us.
    I do not recommend this duffel if it is to be used for travel involving camping, hiking, backpacking.

    Weighing 7.5 pounds before putting anything in, I found this bag to be a bit of a challenge when travelling long distances. Also found the middle compartment to have less volume than I anticipated.

    None of the above are design flaws of the bag however, so I won't mark down the score just because it didn't suit certain scenarios. I will however list down the scenarios you would NOT use this for:

    - If you're a hoarder of souvenirs, this is not the right bag for you. I found lengthy items were a challenge to fit into this bag.
    - If you wear clothes that don't compress, this bag is not for you
    - If you are travelling in a less intrepid manner (i.e going to new york for shopping), this bag is not for you. The empty weight of it alone will stop you from considering shopping.

    So basically this bag is perfect for various scenarios - domestic ski trips, short holiday trips, backpacking. The material is extremely durable and waterproof.

    I like to get my 50 pounds worth out of checked baggage. This bag allows me that opportunity. I stuffed it full and checked it with 46 lbs, and 48 lbs on our last trip. Great size and very sturdy.

    I bought this bag a year ago and have travelled with it through the airport three times. It meets airport regulations as far as size, and it seems to pack much more than a regular suitcase. Plus it has three compartments, two smaller ones on either end, so you can separate items if necessary (shoes, etc.). It is well constructed & attractive as well. I love my bag, would buy another one. As a matter of fact, my husband plans to get one as well.

    Haven't used bag yet, but seems to be well constructed & roomy enough for a trip of almost 2 months, combo camping/hotel, without exceeding airline baggage limit. We'll see, but looks promising. Also, nice looking. Plaid detailing should make it easy to identify on luggage carousel, yet still looks classy.
