Rated 1 out of 5 by CTCollegeGuy Ripped on first plane trip
Bought the large size for a semester abroad to carry lots of stuff-which it did. However the airline somehow ripped a hole in it. Thankfully it did not get any bigger during all my travels and LLBean refunded my money when I got back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lucylovestotravel Problem with dimensions
This is one of my favorite pieces of luggage. The problem is that it's dimensions exceed the 62 inch limitation for many of the carriers. I have resorted to paying for two bags rather than pay the outrageous fee changed for an oversized piece of luggage.I am going to Panama and the second bag will cost me $30.00 and an oversized bag will fun me $200.00. I would travel light but I have to bring research supplies and big forester boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LKJohnshop Durable Duffle
I've gone through my share of duffle bags and this one is by far the best one I've ever owned. It's made of high quality material which is very durable for traveling and airport handling, and it's large enough to hold all of my stuff for an extended trip. All in all it's a great duffle bag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ebgodard Not so good.
I bought the bag for an extended trip and I guess I am in the minority on this. I was very disappointed. One large cavernous space. No interior zippered pockets. No interior straps to keep items from shifting. No matter how much i put in the bag, it all slid to the bottom. The bag would not stand up on its own. If the bag is full the handle doesn't always work due to the weight of the clothing. I had to pack everything in smaller bags to try and keep items from shifting. Everything was wrinkled and a mess. Would return but I had it mongrammed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bluedun Rolling canvas adventure duffel
Great bag! I have been using it for a couple of years for camping, air, car trips. I throw stuff in and go, towing it around easily. There is lots of room. The canvas has been a tough fabric. I carry a big compostable plastic bag in case I need some waterproofing in winter. If we are thoughtful, wife and I can share the bag on a short trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lmsuggs I'm buying another one!
I just got back from a mission trip to Guatemala, using my x-large rolling duffle for the seond time. With luggage weight so critical now, this duffle it fantastic! It will hold anything and everything and buckle down to a smaller size if necessary. Brushes clean; rolls on cobblestone streets in Antigua. My husband and I "fought" over who got to use it--hence another purchase. You can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by moosaki Have Duffle will travel
When I go on a trek with my buddies I want my own gear there. Went to Yellowstone in September to fly fish with all the gear and four fly rods and reels. Total weight for 11 days 38 lbs. Then we went to Aruba to sport fish with five traveling rods a reels and a fly set up at 46 lbs. Price to put it on the plane $20. My fly fishing friends shipped commercially to Yellowstone, price $200. If I put my gear in a regular suit case the price over 50# would run 50-85 each way. Do the math and travel with your toys. Oh by the way, Bean has an excellent luggage scale for $25 to tell you where you are with your weight. I now have one as my friend was gloating over his in Aruba. We caught fish too. Three trips yielded a white marlin, blue marlin and 5 sailfish along with an assortment of various other denizines.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ezroller Bad quality materials
It is a very large duffle and can store a lot of stuff. However, my bag ripped after about 5 trips. The material ripped right where the handles are attached to the bag itself. I also couldn't put this duffle upright since it has no bottom feet making it very uncomfortable in putting it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cruisesinc Perfect size
I ordered the 30" Large size. Perfect for my 3 piece fishing rod tubes (travel size). Appears sturdy enough for my travel needs and airline checked bags.
Time will tell .
