The airport is like the dentist–just close your eyes and hope it ends soon.
Take to the air with the DAKINE Venture 60 Rolling Duffel Bag. The Venture makes the best of a bad situation by making your short stay in the airport as painless as possible. The tough 600D polyester fabric and urethane wheels will last for years of travel. the full zipper main compartment access makes it easy to get to your stuff in a hurry, and an interior security pocket allows you to stash secret items in complete safety.
- Full-length zipper opening for easy access to your gear
- Retractable handle for easy transport
- Interior security pocket for added security
- Urethane wheels for smooth operation and durability
- Does not pass carry-on regulations for all airlines, you'll have to check with your carrier

So far so good!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I received the bag sooner than expected, which was a bonus! Upon arrival the bag was in great shape, no flaws. This bag has been on 3 big trips...Michigan to LA, LA to Seattle, and Seattle to Hawaii. It's held up great. The bag is quite large and you can pack it with a ton. Seems pretty sturdy, zipper is strong and the wheels with the capability to roll in the airport is great!! So all in all I would say this rolling duffle bag is a great buy!! Good quality and worth the price.
I bought this bag for an upcoming trip to Brazil.
The size of luggage airlines allow to be checked for a trip seems to be ever lowering until we're not able to take anything on vacation at all.
Thankfully, this rolling duffel bag falls within the linear inch restriction.
The bag is pretty huge, with really easy access. Fabric seems pretty durable, and the straps and retractable handle all feel sturdy as well.
I did notice though, that if the duffel isn't stuffed full, it does not sit on its own vertically.
There isn't really any frame at the bottom, only a some-what stiff piece of plastic to try and keep it rigid, so if it's not being supported by clothing/whatever, it will collapse under weight.
That being said, this is only supposed to be a duffel bag with wheels, so you can't really expect much structure to the bag.
The real test lies(or is it lay?) ahead at the airport, and I'll be sure to update this after my travels
