I do like the size of this duffel and how much it holds however, the seam slightly ripped on top after one trip. Not a big deal though. The issue I have is when you're pulling it, because of the short handle, you're constantly knocking it onto your back foot/ankle. Makes traveling a little tough. Carrying it with the handle is fine it's just big.
For the price I'm not complaining, will keep it and use it locally for my teenager who travels back and forth from college. I probably won't use going to airport.
I've ordered 2 of these bags and, while incredibly useful and the ability to roll it up while not filled is great, neither of them has stood the test if time. One lasted a few months and the other just under 2 years. Next time I'll pay a little more for quality.
I bought this bag only because I needed to pack a hiking pole that wouldn't fit in my regular suitcase. It fit in this one. However, I had a hole in the case after taking just one trip. It is possible that the hiking pole caused the hole. It is also possible that the material was just not strong enough to be used as a suitcase.
I have had two of these rolling duffel bags and the zipper has separated from the body of the bag's fabric. I like everything about this bag except lack of a shoulder strap for going up steps with hands full.
