Perfect for packing to all you need. We need this as we go back and forth internationally, but understand a completely large size full bag can inherit airline hefty baggage fees or be too heavy to go through some airports (sometimes we pack heavy comforts from home to host country). Durable and easy to transport. Nice side compartments on the side for seperating smaller items. Expandable handles on every size but large. The pull handles on the large size work quite nice without making the whole unit too large and awkward to pull.
I change my opinion on this thing. Be sure to balance the weight so that it can stand properly, though it's still prone to tipping. Considering it's a bit overpriced, I give it 4 stars but as a bag it's well featured with loops that I don't use, and compression straps inside, a bit odd but ok, and one large compartment with one smaller section on the head/top part. Not bad if you can swallow the price.
As earlier reviews have stated; this bag is huge. I don't know if it's ideal for airline travel, but if you're looking for one bag to fit every piece of gear you'd ever need to take on a trip, this is the bag for you. I was most impressed with the durability of the materials used. This bag should last for many years even with the roughest treatment!
I havent used it personally as it was a gift but my buddy loves it. He can fit all his snowboarding gear in it with extra room. Super sturdy.
The large size of this bag does not have the extend-able handle. Only the medium and the small sizes of this bag have that feature.
