    Smells perfectly fine AND it’s a great bag! :), November 23, 2015

    I saw this bag this morning, bought it and received it this afternoon. I’m glad I didn’t see all the bad reviews about the “smell” until after I ordered it, because when it arrived, I opened up and there was ZERO smell. There was also no sign of the typical California plastics-cancer warning label that seems to go in every plastic item in California…everything from plastic school rulers to rubber duckies.

    So I guess the other reviews were from a previous iteration of this bag, and they’ve changed it now so that whatever plastic coating or fabric they were using that smelled of chemicals has been replaced? At any rate, the warning is gone and the smell of this bag is the smell of an ordinary polyester duffel bag, so I’m pleased!

    I took some photos for people struggling to visualize the size of the bag. It came packed neatly in a plastic covering that doubles as a handy zippered travel pouch for toiletries and such. The duffel itself opens up VERY big to allow a ton of storage, but is just small enough to get by as a regular-sized checked piece of baggage on airlines (but NOT carry-on…this size will have to be checked before you board!). It comes with a padded shoulder strap that’s comfortable, even for my narrow shoulders. The plastic hooks for the strap don’t seem hugely sturdy to me and others have mentioned that they broke under heavy weight. I’m thinking of attaching it with two metal carabiners picked up from any dollar store, just in case I have this problem later. The fabric itself is great, looks very sturdy and durable.

    Cat does not come with the bag, and for that you should be grateful. It was included for size reference and because new bags are cat-magnets. It’s a very large cat, so also refer to the size of the nearby shoes for scale. As for the inside, I easily fitted a 12-pack box of soda cans inside of it, with room for one more box and two more stacked on top, no sweat. Also a jumbo size container of oatmeal. It’s a big bag!

    I hope that helps you make up your mind! I will recommend this bag to my friends who need travel duffels, as it’s a great product, seems to have improved so there is no more smell or plastics warning, and the price is awesome. :)

    Sturdy and easy to clean. I use this when I travel for work offshore and it has lasted well. I put a piece of 1/4″ plywood in the bottom of it to keep it flat and when I want to clean it, I just take the plywood out and throw the whole thing in the washer. It has stood up to the abuse of the airlines and the helicopter flights with lots of handling. My only complaint is that the shoulder strap connections are plastic and they broke after just a few uses. Buy some good straps with metal connectors if you plan to use shoulder straps to carry it.

    Great price for a large heavy-duty bag, January 16, 2013

    For the price this is a great heavy-duty bag. Was looking for a bag to tote around our snowboard boots and helmets after the prior one died. Checked out gear and lacrosse bags, but they’re priced around twice this. Bag is sized as advertised and fits the stuff perfectly. Quality zippers and clips, and a bottom that helps hide grime. It does not have a rigid bottom, which can be annoying if you’re looking for some structure when carrying it. But otherwise no complaints and just ordered another one for the kid’s gear.
