MLLTravelin / Jacksonville, FL
I have a room full of old luggage including small, ridiculously large, square, duffle, valice, garment bag, haversack, satchel, ad nauseam. With our heavy lifting years behind us, my wife needed a rolling "something" that held a moderate amount of all her things for a few days, including those not accustomed to being folded, that held up to airline abuse, was not a throwaway if it were to be injured (Orvis stands behind these Battenkill items), and would be easily identifiable at the inevitable post-flight "lineup of luggage" (but would also fit in the overhead compartment). Turns out, after literally thousands of dollars spent, THIS WAS IT! Affordable, simple, well crafted, tough and attractive! It worked so well for my wife, I just bought one for myself which I carry with Orvis' Businessman's backpack. Perfect.

Have used large Orvis rolling duffles for years. They are durable and endure the punishment of airlines.
I love this smaller duffle. While you cannot carry on board an airliner, it is very convenient for shorter trips. For a 5 day trip, there is no way to comply with the carry on requirements anyway.
I purchased this as a matching piece for the Bullhide and Canvas Backpack I bought last year. Having come to thoroughly enjoy the backpack, I was certain the rolling carry-on would deliver. Like the backpack, it offers some clever features I haven't found in many other bags. I pack light to get through airport security lines as quickly as possible—so both the exterior padded laptop pocket and the removable liquids zip pouch makes that much easier. Initially I was concerned about space, but it's surprisingly roomy given the external pocket design. The handle extends further than many bags in the same class—and surprisingly this makes a real difference. The plaid interior and leather trim adds some extra class to an already handsome and durable bag. One of my better purchases.
