Great quality, really well designed

My wife bought one before this one and I bought a rollog duffel by Columbia. Her bag held way more, was much higher quality and more practical too. It only cost $30 more than mine, but it outperformed it by a mile. The only drawback is that it does not work on luggage stands in a hotel room, or on a chair, due to the fold open design. That design does vice great access to al the contents, in well proportioned and generous zippered compartments inside. It is happiest opening up on the floor or a bed. Neither are great options, if you have a bad back or no space. That begin said, I liked hers so much I bought one for this six month trip to China I am now on! It has proven to be great in may ways, and holds plenty. I bought the carry on to match too but it arrived too late, my own [...] fault. I will be selling my Columbia bag when I return for sure. At the clearance price, you really will not find a better bag. I checked. I also like the Jasmine print shell, even thou I am a male. No insecurities here! Just great luggage in an easily spotted pattern on the carousel!
