    I bought this bag for a trip to the Galapagos Islands & Machu Picchu. Earlier this year I took it to Costa Rica. Held up on both trips – checked the bag both times. Like all the seperate compartments. I labelled each pocket using duct & sharpie pen so I could find things quickly. The specs say it weighs 5.9lbs. but my scale ‘says’ it weighs 5lbs…either way, it’s lighter than most suitcases. That’s important when some overseas airlines limit checked luggage to 33 pounds. I also put a large plastic garbage bag inside before packing so I don’t have to worry about things getting wet because of the soft sides. It holds my hiking poles just fine.

    This review is from: Olympia Luggage 26″ 8 Pocket Rolling Duffel Bag (Apparel)
    Great bag – light, agile, pretty tough, and plenty of storage capability. I am really hard on luggage (throwing a bag in a trunk just does not bring out the ‘gentle’ in me). But as I pack for my third big trip of the year, I am considering buying another one of these bags – just for backup. For the money, I could buy 3 or 4 of these before I border on the expense of 1 Rick Steeves carrier with the same capacity (not that I don’t love Rick Steeves cubes, and not that I wouldn’t gladly buy his bags if I could easily afford the investment). I have literally “gone through” every form of luggage from 1-trick ponies to Louis Vuitton and Tumi leather and … let’s face it people … luggage is just meant to hold stuff. If you want to make a statement, you wouldn’t be reading this review, and I wouldn’t be able to recommend anything “elegant” with equivalent utility for less that 10x as much. That said, the black bag I have is perfectly “neat” looking, although I must admit that I wish the top and side pockets could hold more ‘stuff’… and I was only mildly annoyed when one of my zippers came off the tracks last week with this bag (OK OK I also use it to haul laundry every week now). No problem. I used the *other* zipper grip that was still on the track. See what I mean? Good stuff. I have paid more for discount store “luggage” and even shallow grocery-store totes, so … I’ll keep buying these when I need to move around reliably and haul ‘stuff’ on wheels.

    Fail – Pass This One Up, August 17, 2012

    First thing I noticed was, as many reviewers noted, the handle did not lock. OK, I figure for the price I could live with it.
    Then, on my first use, I was zipping it up and the seam of the main compartment zipper failed (I uploaded photos). The bag was not packed tightly at all.
    Of course, the first use was beyond the return period. Of course, I have thrown away my original packing slip. Of course, I am pretty much stuck with this.
    Don’t get stuck.
    Pass this one up.
