by frKearney nice bag
I have other clothes bags from distant past of LLB. All great and durable. This unit, I like so far, and have not had exactly this type carry bag prior. Seems to keep my shirts a little better, less wrinkled, than other types I have had. Nice embroidery work I requested. This bag seems that it will be durable. I rigged myself a shoulder strap, as that fits the needs better sometimes, rather than rolling, which I really do not like. It does roll nicely however, and seems quite stable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by southernsportsman Handle Breaks - This is my 9th bag
This is my ninth bag in two years. The handles have broken where they intersect with the extendable uprights. Ive been using LL Bean products for 40 years and this is my first disappointment. Now at $329 Im stuck in a perpetual cycle of return one broken bag and get a new one. Hopefully LL Bean fixes this soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1923 Garment Bag
Excellent. Heavy. Well built. Larger than one would expect. Easy to over pack. Goods worth price charged. Easy to move about. Interior well thought out. Now clothes do not have to hang in the interior of the vehicle. Great customer service when ordering. Make sure when closing not to place the zipper ends down at the wheels. They may drag and or catch on something. Not a design flaw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JRDVA Inherently Defective
I had this item for years and loved it. After lots of wear and tear, I finally replaced it only to find that they had changed the design. The new one had to be replaced THREE TIMES in six months with each one having the SAME defect. The handle breaks off. Definitely not thee LL Bean quality I know.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rcb812 disappointed
Bought this bag several years ago, it's very good looking, but I had the same problems with the handle that other reviews have noted. It broke after a year of use, had it repaired, then one year later it broke again - is stuck and won't extend. I could get it repaired again, I guess, but I really don't have the time. For this price, I expected more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoulderJeff Going strong after 14 years!
I bought one of these bags 14 years ago and it's STILL going strong. Pretty amazing! Over this period, I've averaged one trip per month, usually 3 to 4 days in duration. These are business trips and I typically carry:
- One suit
- Dress shirts (x3)
- Shoes (2 pairs)
- Casual shirts (x2)
- Jeans (1 pair)
- Underwear & Toiletries
- Work-related files, 30 to 50 pages
This bag has done a wonderful job of protecting its contents and it's easy to maneuver through the airport (although it would be nice if the handle was a bit longer).
In my opinion, the greatest challenge to the longevity of any bag is abuse by airline conveyor belts and baggage handlers. Due to airline abuse, the zipper on the front pocket no longer works and the rest of the bag looks a bit ratty LOL. So, I will probably replace it in the near future. I might get a carry-on, because this would avoid the airline abuse issue. But, I'll definitely buy another Bean bag. This one has been great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by redkev So far so good...
I purchased this bag to replace a TravelPro rolling garment bag that fell apart after 50,000 miles, not many miles for an expensive quality piece of luggage. The Bean bag is smaller but the construction and design seems superior to the Travel Pro. So far the Bean bag has only been on a single trip. I will provide an update on durability after the first 25,000 miles. I wish it were bigger! I had to buy an additional small Sportsman's bag to make up for the lost cubic inches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RiceBean Rugged and tough
I really like the wheeled garment bag. I would like to suggest that perhaps it needs to be a a little wider for suits. Also, if it had a few more internal pockets, where you could put things that you need to pack.
But overall, it is very well made. Should last along time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by potterylover rugged yet light weight
I studied different brands of luggage and different stores when looking for a sturdy rolling garment bag and always came back to LL Beans Sportsman's rolling garment bag. I have had one of the large rolling duffle bags and it has served us well for overseas trips as well as youth camps. I would like this product even better if it were made in America.
