Rated 5 out of 5 by Reenie123 Great Bags
We ordered both the small & medium bags in Royal for our adult daughter. She wanted something for occasional weekend trips that she could easily throw in the car that didn't necessarily look like luggage and would be easy to carry. The sizes are perfect. For shorter trips, the medium easily does the trick, and for longer trips, having the additional small bag is great for stowing all toiletries, etc., freeing up extra space in the medium bag. We plan on purchasing more bags for several Christmas gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luckytotravel Best bag ever!
We have owned 2 of these bags for 7 years, with a 3rd purchased last year. We have logged around 100,000 miles with our first 2, including some rough duty in Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, and most recently Peru. They are really great travel bags. We have had no issues with zippers, handles, wheels or rips. These bags have been loaded, unloaded, stuffed, crammed, tossed, thrown, and smooshed - only to come home again and again in one piece.
The medium is a perfect size for a 2 week trip - with efficient packing. We also have a large, but fully packed, it becomes a bit cumbersome - which is why we ended up buying a 3rd medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunnie23 What happened to the "ash" color?
Have been waiting on the ash color to come back in and now it has disappeared off the color chart. This was my favorite color for a man's bag. Will it be back LLBean? Gave one as a Christmas gift and was so pleased wanted one for my adult son. The medium is a great size for trips of several days and works well as a carry-on bag on airplane. The large is very large and not as practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyMNshopper So sorry to have to return
I bought the extra large rolling duffel for my daughter, who is studying in London for part of the summer. It arrived on time and was just a beautiful bag - we got the yellow. We tried it out and it rolled so smoothly. As we started to pack, unfortunately, we realized the bag was just too big. She ended up using another bag instead. I was so sorry to return this bag - because it was so pretty and sturdy - just what you expect from LL Bean. I have two medium duffles and we just love them. I'd purchase another duffle in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyNails Duffle bag with monogram
This is the second duffle I've bought, the first for a grandson (age 20# and the second for his younger brother #age 14#. The bags hold a lot and are very durable. The side zippered pocket hold a lot for trips. One bag has a three letter monogram, black stitching on red bag, and looks very sharp. The second has my grandson's name, unfortunately, that bag #at Grandson's request) is navy blue and the black thread is barely seen. It would be nice to have a choice of two colors-one that can be seen on dark colored bags. I would highly recommend this and will be buying others as gifts but would suggest not bother monograming a dark duffle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CVinDC Much too large for trips to the gym
Medium size duffle is way too large for trips to the gym; we bought this based on other reviewer comments and we are not happy. We also agree with another reviewer that there aren't enough pockets/dividers to keep things separate. The one small zippered pocket looks like it holds a phone but not much else. We will now need to repurpose this bag for overnight/weekend getaways and find another solution for the gym.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bchaplin Nice, but collects lint
I got the small Adventure Duffle, in purple, for use as a gym bag. It definitely holds all my gym gear, including shoes and toiletries, and the handle is very nice because it grips my shoulder without my having to hold onto it.
What I don't like is the material used on the bottom of the bag. It collects lint and fur. If you have pets, you may find it needs frequent cleaning. Nevertheless, I'll keep it for now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by reedmyrt Great Bag, Color not right
I really liked the bag, it was exactly what I was expecting. The large is a great size for longer trips, the medium is a good weekend size. My only comment is that the sea holly color is not the bright green that the picture shows on all three of my devices. It's a much darker color. It's still pretty, just not what I expected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trees57 Basic duffle with no features
This duffle begs for pockets and compartments to segregate items. Works for just shoving a bunch of clothes in, such as for car camping.
