Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even fits in the larger airplane overhead bins I bought this mid-size bag very recently and used it for a one week trip where I had a medium amount of clothes and supplies for hiking, snorkeling, etc. I especially appreciated the handles on both sides and top and the side straps that helped keep the shape of the bag when full. The bag is light wieght and well balanced (did not tip over when full). The handle design is convenient and makes it easy to slip my daypack on when rolling thru the airport. I can't yet speak to how the bag will hold up in the long run, but it was thrown around a bit on this trip and is no worse for the wear. Overall I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bag! I wanted something larger than a carry-on, yet smaller/lighter than a 30" traditional suitcase. After much research, I hit the jackpot with the Load Warrior 26. I just used it for a week long trip to Hawaii. The capacity of this bag is awesome, especially with the expansion unzipped. It's very lightweight, yet appears to be plenty durable. I love the internal and external compression straps. When used with packing organizers, you can't beat this bag. I'm very happy with this purchase and will be looking to replace my wife's HEAVY Samsonite suitcase with a large Eagle Creek bag. Bravo Eagle Creek!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Load Warrior 25" We have used our bags on a 7 day sailing trip, 5 day anniversary/beach husband and I both have one. We liked it so well, we bought the newer 26" for our son's birthday after he admired ours. Wish they had kept the 25" in production... I roll my shirts to fit in bottom bars of bag. My wish list:a small pocket at the top (in addition to the full length one) for small travel stuff. Side pocket is great for empty water bottle. Extra zippered area provides great expansion and flexibility. Tie downs are convenient...we are thrilled with these bags!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well Bought this for a trip to Peru with an adventure company where we traveled the country in vans. It worked well. It was large enough for the 10 day trip and left me room to bring home souvenirs; this is not including hiking boots and such that traveled in my large day pack. The plastic (red) slider that holds the strap from flapping on one of the exterior cinching straps broke off when in the hands of the airline. I purchased the blue duffel with red accents, which made is easy to identify on the luggage carousel; along the way I thought black might be better to hide dirt...but scuffs/dust have sloughed off on there own. My favorite features are the light weight of bag itself and that it is constructed so that it stands up on end regardless of the amount in the bag or its center of gravity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Never buy another travel bag I was given an Eagle Creek bag for a gift and six years later it looks brand new. I travel nearly every week and my Eagle Creek travel bags still look beautiful. They are durable, lightwieght and cleverally designed. I liked them so much that I have given them away as gifts on many occassions. Prior to buying Eagle Creek I would buy a new bag every 2-3years because the wore out and were poorly designed and constructed. Thank you Eagle Creek for a job well done! Safe Travels and all the very best to you and your family

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lived up to expectations! I take students on trips each summer. I've always used Eagle Creek products and have had great luck. But age is getting to me, so for my (June 2015) 18-day trip to Europe with 17 students, I decided it was time for me to try a rolling duffle. After a lot of research, I settled in on the Eagle Creek Road Warrior. It sounded like it would fit my needs. It arrived and I liked it from first glance, but as my travels started I was a bit worried that it wouldn't hold up. My trip involved 4 flight segments and getting on and off trains through several European countries. I then had to roll the piece from train station to hotel (or hostel) over all kinds of terrain and sometimes for more than two miles. I kept thinking to myself, what would I do if this luggage failed ... there would be no way I could carry it since it wasn't meant to be a backpack. Well, it didn't fail. It came through with flying colors. There's hardly a scuff to show for all the travel it did. This bag is perfect! I give it five stars, two thumbs up, and an A++.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs Shoulder Straps The bad is 99% perfect. Because of it's size I think the addition of "hidden" Shoulder straps gives the traveler the option of using it as a backpack over rough terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always reliable We purchased this bag for a several month trip to Nepal, Jordan, Chile and Peru. It packs well and is not too bulky for relatively easy movement from place to place. We purchased and returned several other 25 inch bags from other manufacturers before settling on this one.

Does the expandable main compartment add 15% volume in addition to the listed 63 liters / 4090 cubic inches, or does the listed volume include the additional 15% space gained by expanding the main compartment?

"Piggyback clip attaches an additional bag (not included), allowing both to be wheeled as one.." Please provide a link or description of the "additional bag" that this particular 26" rolling duffel supports.  Thank you!

Asked by: ChrisG
You can attach any bag, helmet or pack that fits using the bungee clip that pulls over the top and to the front of the Loadwarrior. There is not a specific pack or bag to use with this duffel.

The specs reference 4 exterior pockets. I wan only find 1 (top of the bag). The others are where? 

Asked by: mmkk
This duffel has two exterior pockets as well as an interior mesh pocket and an ID tag pocket. Thank you for calling this inaccuracy to our attention.
