    REI Wheely Beast Wheeled Duffel - 21" is rated 4.5556 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Good This is a great bag but.... I like this lightweight duffle style, which holds a lot of stuff and yet fits nicely in an airplane overhead compartment. Price was not a problem when you are looking for that perfect bag. I use a variety of Eagle Creek packing cubes and they fit easily in a variety of configurations. I even found that there is a little extra space at the top near the handle that hold a little more stuff. I can traveled with this bag and a small backpack for three weeks and it holds all of my stuff while meeting the airline regulations. However, sometimes I wish I was a bag designer. There are two alternations that I would make. First, the interior straps are too short. They barely reach across two packing cubes. It bothered me so much that I designed and added a 9 inch extension to the female side of the straps and that gives me much more effective compression and holds my stuff securely in place. Second, the blue exterior strapping on the side is useless. I would never attach anything to the outside of the bag. It would not fit into an airplane overhead. I would replace these strapping with compression straps. If the bag is half-full, these straps could reduce the bag profile and hold the contents in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless European travel This bag forced me to pack light, which I don't regret! Be sure to pack an extra duffel or knapsack to get your souvenirs home. My clothes were either jelly-rolled or in zip-lock bags and I was good to go for two weeks overseas (though I did some laundry in the hotel sink)! I was never given a second look when boarding flights because the size was perfect. And wheeling down narrow train aisles was easy-peasy. The seams, zippers and material quality are just fine. I anticipate enjoying many smooth trips with this bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific I took this bag on a trip to Italy for 3 weeks. It was great for getting off and on trains. The back pocket is great for keeping track of hotel reservations, airline tickets etc. The handles are easy to grip and comfortable. The handle on the front makes it easy to lift the bag onto the hotel bed. The handle goes up in down perfectly. It's great for carrying up a lot of stairs in tight stairwells in buildings that do not have elevators. And ... it forces you to pack light. Terrific for crowded regional trains where everyone having a 5ft suitcase has to stand for an hour because there is no space for the luggage and they chose not to leave it alone. Plus, it crams into tight spaces as it doesn't have hard square corners. It was also easy getting around narrow sidewalks that have a lot of bumps, or otherwise, are not smooth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love the Wheely Beast I needed a wheeled duffel bag for a trip into a fairly remote spot in Nicaragua for a 10-day stay, and didn't want to check any baggage. The Wheely Beast and a day pack ended up being the perfect creatures for the job. The Beast held all my clothes, shoes, and gifts and did not add much extra weight of its own, was durable and weathered being thrown about and buried under other luggage in buses and boats, etc. Its wheels worked perfectly when I got back to the smooth-floored airports, and I was able to hoist it overhead into the overheads on the plane without trouble and it fit perfectly into the hold. I'll be using it again for future trips to the tropics.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a back breaker! The extra handle on the front of the pack makes it easy to lift out of a vehicle without straining back muscles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Beast is the Best! I purchased this travel duffel for dual use as a carry-on bag and for weekend trips. So far I have used it for a weekend trip and am really satisfied with it! The inside pockets are great for packing small items or keeping things separated (like clean clothes from the dirty clothes at the end of a trip), the zippers are strong, and the outside handles are very durable. I feel comfortable using this bag on an upcoming trip for an extended stay in Tanzania.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this product Used this for the first time on a trip to the Canadian Rockies this month. Loved that it was sturdy, loads of room for everything including collapsible hiking sticks (17"). I checked bag due to size of plane and items not allowed on carry on, you could get this bag on carry on with a large plane overhead. Easy to identify at baggage claim, zippers are hidden under front top flap, like this. Very sturdy wheels easy to maneuver. Priced reasonably.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for those crowded overhead bins! This is the perfect luggage for weekend get aways or travel baggage restrictions. I would prefer one more pocket outside to slip my plane tickets, car keys, ebook, and tablet. I love the way it collapses to the size you need and expands as you need more.
