Purchased this bag for my world travels, only take carryon. It has served me well and still holds up, atho some of the seams are getting a bit frayed. Pluses: lots of outside pockets for last minute items; extended 2 stage handle but it's pretty wobbly at this point; tuff, durable material; large opening so easy to pack & unpack and folds flat so can easily fit under my bed when not in use. Cons: If you stuff the bag full, it pushes the side pockets out and won't fit the criteria for some airline's carryon. And when packed full, the top handle straps no longer touch so you can't Velcro them closed, useless; they should be longer to allow for that. Weight - this is a pretty heavy bag due to the durable material and wheels. And the retractable handle takes up valuable packing space but that s the norm with wheeled bags. Guess you can't have both durable, super lightweight, lots of packing space and still fit in an overhead bin of a plane. When going to Iceland, the max carryon weight was 22 lbs. for Icelandair. Subtracting the weight of the bag, didn't leave much weight for winter clothes. Overall very happy with my purchase.

Cute when I first ordered it, but on a trip to London, Paris and Barcelona it split open at the zipper twice with my unmentionables lining the baggage claim at my final stop. Less than impressed, I would have saved my money and bought a better bag, and unmentionables.

I can this item be unzipped into two separate pieces? I bought a double decker Athalon 32 inch duffel bag and the bottom fell out. I need to find out what kind of warranty is on this bag. I need another one.

This bag was wonderful. It kept me organized. Plenty of room. And the fact that it is soft made it easy for a carry on plus wheels when walking.

A very versatile bag. It has become my go to travel bag. The bottom is very rugged, and can take the abuse that the airlines can dish out. I like the duffle handle. My only suggested improvement is that it be given the option to carry with a shoulder strap.

I absolutely LOVE this suitcase, as a frequent traveler it met all of my needs on it's maiden, three-week voyage to India. It's lightweight for it's size and relatively sturdy. The only downside was on my second flight ever, one of the "feet" on the bottom of the case (when laid horizontally flat) was torn off - probably a combination of airline abuse and poor design. I didn't make much of a difference for my remaining two weeks of travel and in true Zappo's tradition, they exchanged it right away. I wondered if I should even invest in the same suitcase given it's potential for damage but I love this suitcase so much I'm willing to give it another try. Hopefully future baggage handlers will handle with care. If you tend to overpack, this won't work for you, I tend to be in the middle when it comes to packing - not too sparse and not too much, I tend to wear everything I pack within six days. Wash and repeat.

I got this in black when they still had the color in stock. It's a GREAT bag. I don't know how I've lived without it for my first year of law school. Better late than never! The bag has excellent cushion for the back. Great padding for the laptop (holds up to 15") and can even hold a couple of big law textbooks (although more than one book PLUS a computer is heavy enough on any back even with good cushion). It has inside pockets for your earphones, chargers, pens and highlighters, a side pocket for your subway/bus cards, keys, and another side pocket for your travel mug or water bottle. A very solid and practical bag with a great price to boot. Highly recommend.

I am always skeptical of golf travel bags. The last three that I've had that have not been hard case rip or tear after the first two flights. This one is very well-made have already take it on three trips with no incident. The handles are very burly and well constructed.

After a decade of service, my go-to carry-on bag was -- sadly -- no longer useable. I had been searching for something similar to replace it for a while. I am happy with this purchase. I really like the over/under feature: a lower compartment that can be used to stow a pair of shoes -- or a bunch of dirty clothing -- without soiling the rest of your clothes. I dig the lumberjack vibe, too!

I received the 22" Athalon duffel today, and I could not be more pleased. It is very attractive, and more important, very well designed and built. I truly believe this bag will stand up to many years of baggage handlers and travel. This bag will hold a great deal, and it is designed to provide a lot of organization. Pockets everywhere, along with a large interior space. Beautiful red color, ballistic nylon fabric, solid zippers and pulls. I weighed it at 7.6 pounds - which is not heavy considering the durability.

My travels require a bag that compresses to minimum once I get on a sailboat with several others. I want only one bag to monitor while traveling. This fit the bill and the budget. Used all the pockets for that variety of plugs, electronics, cosmetics which enabled me to find them easily. Worked well on first trip. Fabric durable. I ordered from Zappos because I knew it would arrive on time.

I loved the color and easy to spot on the carousel, and for such a large suitcase it was lightweight and easy to roll. Packed well too. The only problem was that after ONE trip to Europe, the stopper on the back of the suitcase pulled out of the brads and was hanging on by one brad when it arrived home. A bit disappointed with that, and not sure how to fix it, so I think I will just take it off.

Perfect carry-on size for a 4 day trip. I used this bag on an international flight to Cabo flying U.S. Airways and it fit perfectly in the overhead bin. The bag stands up when full. My only complaint is that the handle gets wiggly after multiple uses. I've had that issue with the entire set of luggage that matches this bag as well.

This bag is awesome; it is the perfect size for a five day trip to a warm weather region. Has a large compartment for dirty clothes or wet bathing suites. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect for a 3-day weekend! I really like the pockets inside the top. Was very easy to get through airport security quickly. However, *WARNING!* it JUST BARELY fit into the overhead compartment. It rolls easily and I had no problems with the handle. I'm not giving 5 stars only because the top opens a little awkwardly. Otherwise, I love this bag!

Great wheeling duffel! Love all of the compartments to keep everything organized. The only negative I have about this bag is the way the handle telescopes into the bag. As you push the handle down is goes inside of the lower segment, making it easy to pinch your fingers. (I did this the very first time I used it!) Instead, as you push the handle down, the top segment should go over the lower segment.

I have owned the 29" Over/Under Wheeling Duffel in 'Graffiti' for about 8 years. It has been around the world a couple times and barely shows wear due to the multi color pattern (one of the reasons I love this collection). Second reason this entire collection is awesome is the simple fact I can spot my luggage coming out the carousel at any airport from a mile away and not have to check the bag-tags of 15 other peoples black luggage first. Athalon has always made quality durable luggage and this bag follows suit: the zippers are heavy duty, the wheels are tough and safely tucked into the design of the bag...it's smooth and very easy to maneuver. I purchased this 26" Hybrid in 'Graffiti' because the 29" I own was a little too large for a 5 day work trip. At first I was disappointed that the over/under duffel style wasn't available in the size I needed so that it perfectly matched my existing pieces. Either way I was happy to find the Graffiti collection at all since rumor had it Athalon has discontinued the pattern. Now that I have owned both styles I can blatantly see the pro's & con's of each. The lower compartment/section of the over/under duffel is awesome for separating larger items, as well as the side pockets. The Hybrid on the other hand stands up much nicer on its own, obviously due to its more structured shape. When I have the duffel standing upright (on the exact same feet & wheel design) and packed to the max, it becomes top/front heavy and wants to tip over forward. The Hybrid just doesn't do that. The Hybrid also has more smaller pocket/compartments on the interior than the over/under duffel. At the end of the day, if I had to choose between designs again, I don't know which I would choose...so I guess I'm pretty happy I have one of each in 2 different sizes. Now I'm faced with the dilemma of which shape to purchase in a 21" carry on?! I'm thinking the Hybrid is a safer choice, because the 21" duffel doesn't meet all airlines overhead compartment standards.

I really wanted to keep this bag - good size, cute print, seemed durable - however, to comfortably use it I would have to be no taller than 5'4" and have to always wear flats while using it. The luggage handle is ridiculously short on this thing! Back it goes, to my chagrin.
