22" Rolling Duffel
Maybe better suited for car trips than airplanes
Bought this to use as an airplane carryon. Agree with other reviews in that it easily topples over when upright and handle extended. Difficult to maneuver through airplane aisle. Because it easily topples over, I ended up carrying it more with the handles than truly pulling on wheels (at which point I wished it had a shoulder strap!).
Might be better used as weekend duffle/car trips with the option of using the wheels but doesn't function as well as other upright carry on bags that need to be wheeled (and upright) from ticket counter, through security, down to gate and unto plane.
One positive - durable material definitely gave the duffle more structure than the fabric duffles.

Not a fan
Such a beautiful bag, but still don't like it! It doesn't roll well, tends to tip, and the top is quite a bit narrower than the bottom, so it doesn't hold as much as you'd think. My other 22" bags hold alot more. Also the harder ends stands a little too tall, even when the bag isn't packed full, making it hard to squeeze into the overheads. Had to be forced and I was afraid I was going to rip it or that the FA might make me check it. I have several grand travelers and weekenders, multiple small and large regular duffels, a garment bag, a 22" spinner, another rolling duffel in Blue Rhapsody, and etc. I love most of your bags, but sorry Vera not this one. Major fail and would give it zero stars if I could.

Bad for travel
I fell completely in love with the plum crazy pattern and was thrilled to see this bag in this fabric but unlike every other pattern in this bag including the black one, this does not have the strip of fabric on the back so you can conveniently trolley it on top of your larger suitcase! I don't understand why they would omit that crucial feature from this particular fabric but it's in fact the only one missing this. It's just too heavy to act as a simple duffle. So disappointed.

Not great for traveling
This duffel does not roll on sidewalk or anything that is uneven. Very tiring having to lift it constantly. It tips over when you stand it up. The good feature is that it has lots of space and is attractive.
