Rated5out of5byfromBest bag I've ever had!I hauled this bag around with me for 3 weeks in Morocco. It was perfect: compact, easy to wheel across cobbles and gravel, tough, durable, roomy. I can't say enough good things about it! If I were traveling for over a month I might buy one size up, but the carry-on size was perfectly adequate for a few weeks' worth of gear. The outside shoe pocket is great.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat bag!Bought this bag for a recent trip to Europe, where it is nice to have a medium size bag for repeated train travel. This bag has it all. Zippers that can be locked, handles to pick the bag up vertically, horizontally or even when laying on its back - there is a hand cup at the bottom to accomodate. The bag has two outside pockets, one with an inside clear attached bag for use with liquids passing through security. The second outside pocket was actually large enough for temporary storage of my 13" laptop. Inside mesh pockets. I've bought a lot of luggage over the years, and traveled heavily. This bag was a great find. Thoroughly enjoying it, and it appears built to last a while.

Rated5out of5byfromgood bag make good tripThis bag was well designed. I traveled with a group and constantly found myself being glad my bag had features that other people didn't have. The only down side was that after some particularly rough handling by airlines, the rubber button pad fell out. The handle still functions fine, but it was a little bit disappointing. It's still a great bag. I like the way the side handles are placed. When I carry it it doesn't bump into my legs. It rolled very nicely even on bumpy cobblestones and over big curbs.

Rated4out of5byfromCarry On WorkhorseI got this for three to five day trips that I thought I could make from a carry on-sized bag. So far, so good. The bag is well-made and sturdy. The wheels roll smoothly and the retractable handle feels solid. The slight bottom to top taper makes it more stable, but does limit the payload just a bit. The inner pockets help keep things organized, but five days worth of clothes might be a stretch unless you're a bit ruthless about what you take.

Rated4out of5byfromDoes what it shouldMy first wheeled luggage. It hauls a lot, it's sturdy and it fits in the overhead compartment. It could use a few more organizational pockets, but otherwise it's a good product.

Rated5out of5byfromExcellentUsed the duffle in a 2 week trip in Alaska in and out of small float planes and just returned from 2 weeks in Europe. Duffle is well balanced, and being able to grab it from four hold points is very convenient

Rated5out of5byfromWhat a GREAT bag !!!!!Took the bag on a work trip to Scotland for 2 weeks. It contained everything I needed for that time. The amount and placement of pockets is GREAT. My other carry on bag is now retired

Rated5out of5byfromGreat Piece of Luggage!This is a solid piece of luggage for weekend trips or as a carry-on. We had a famous brand name pair of carry-ons and they were so awful, we returned them (not from REI). This is the perfect answer to my search for a carry-on. It's got great handles for hefting a heavy carry-on into overhead compartments in flights. It fit into all of the smaller craft overheads that I travelled on during this luggage's inaugural trip to JA. It rolls well and can take a beating with no marks being left on the case. The outer pocket for shoes is FANTASTIC. This case is everything you need and then some for a long weekend trip or as a carry-on. We'll be purchasing another and a larger tech-beast for checking on longer trips/flights.
