Rated 2 out of 5 by Marcus55 X-tra large sportsmans drop bottom gear bag
I am in the process of returning this item so the pull handle can be fixed, so I'm not exactly thrilled with the quality of this product. The nylon that it's made of is very this and the zippers look to be only slightly heavier that a regular grade of zipper that you would find on a fall weight jacket.
This bag is worth every dime of $79.50 Unfortunately I paid the LL Bean asking price of $249.00. I expected more from LLB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennLovesBean So Many Compartments!
I love this rolling duffel! There's so much room, with an under compartment (I use for shoes), two large side compartments on either end and one along the outside of the body (for socks, ties, other sm. items)...and then that ginormous main body of the bag. The only problem you're going to have with this bag will be keeping the weight to airline's limits! It's SUPER sturdy, and boy have I logged many miles with it, with hearty canvas and zippers and wheels and handle. Perfection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nakapaahu Haven't traveled yet, but
the bag is well--designed, spacious and light; the wheels are sturdy as well; the drop-bottom and side pockets will hold a lot; this duffle should withstand well mangling by baggage handlers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by popjake Trust the reviews
I purchased this bag for use on vacation/cruise. I did read some negative reviews based on the construction and cost of this bag but trusted LL Bean for their quality. Unfortunately I should have trusted the reviews. The material for the bag is very thin which made me somewhat suspicious. When we returned from out trip, my wife noticed that on the two outer corners of the bottom zipper track had started to separate.
The good news is that LL Bean's customer service lives up to its high standards and is accepting my return for a full refund. This alone is reason for people to continue to shop with this company.

This is one tough bag ,carries plenty and packs great. Love having the rolling wheels . This is my second one, my wife was always using it so I got a second for her.

Will not stand upright. The soft duffel bag top exposes contents to
Breakage. No provision for a lock on the "drop bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dnta My Second One
This is a tried and true large rolling bag which has (and this is why I love it the most) a hard-sided drop bottom which allows me to carry all kinds of things that would normally get crushed in transit (cookies, bread, wrapped glass items, etc.) I had one for over 10 years and finally just got a new one. Expensive, but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boysontherun Extra-Large Rolling Duffle
This is my second time purchasing the Extra-Large Rolling Duffle Bag from LL Bean. I purchased one for my son for an 8 week College Internship last summer in London, and now my other son needed a similar bag for a college workshop and he is pleased with the bag. They both liked that rolling wheels and extra-space at the bottom for their dress-suit along with ample room for socks, t-shirts, jeans etc. on on the top and sides.The bag also meets the requirements for Width, Length and Depth for US and International travel which can be frustrating if you don't check it out before your trip. Good Purchase for a lifetime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLGreg classy duffel
Awesome duffel. Very convenient to use and transport. Very rugged made with heavy duty zippers. "D" shaped opening for easy access of everything packed. Separate zipped bottom for separating contents. This is a great feature. Luggage ID tag built in so it won't get ripped off. The wheels and handle are very well made and sturdy. By far the best duffle I have ever seen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JBSH Very disappointing
For the cost of this bag I expected a high quality , durable product.
The zipper did not work properly. The material of the bag was thin.
there was no proper lining or pockets inside. The handle mechanism and wheels were not high quality.
This was the what you would expect from a $50-$75 bag.
