We don't travel a lot, but when we did take a vacation in January we only had duffel bags. Well carrying those around, plus a laptop, plus a toddler was not easy. We are taking a residency vacation in July to Minnesota and We can not do the Duffel thing again. So I contacted High Sierra Sport and was so happy when they said yes. Now our traveling wouldn't be as difficult!
They sent me the 30" Wheeled Cargo Duffel. We're so happy with it so far. We haven't actually gotten a chance to use it yet, but we like how big it is. You can fit anything in it!!
This last picture here shows the side pockets. It has one on each side and it's hard to explain but I couldn't get a good picture of it. If you open the middle main part of the duffel on the side here where these pockets are, it velcros up making this side pocket smaller, OR you undo the velcro and it makes these side pockets bigger... WITH ME??
So I think it's real neat if you're traveling with a lot of shampoo's, toothpastes, deodorants etc. Things you don't want on your clothes. You can make one or both pockets bigger for those things that may leak.
I like the wheels. I don't want to be carrying around a duffel bag and I like the regular luggage that is wheeled, but I like the look of the duffel bag, so this gives me the best of both worlds!!

I think all that is pretty darn impressive!!
Price: This one I reviewed is about $117 from the places I've looked. This is a bit expensive to me, as our set of 3 duffel bags was about $100. But I think because of the wheels it makes it pretty worth it.
Overall: **** 1/2 Love this duffel and I hope it will do us very good on our trip in July. But I wish the price was a little cheaper!
