Great Bag & improvement...almost
December 07, 2010
I've used this bag for many years, including the previous model (though the name was different, freightliner) Freewheeler is a great improvement over the previous generation, including usage of recycle material and more organizational pockets and sleeves. Durability is excellent, even though I miss the old ballistic nylon, polyester material o this bag seem to be standing up well after 25K miles logged as checked in baggage. However, I must say the top small pocket is NO-GO. The zipper for this pocket tends to open when you grab the bag by the handle, which most baggage handerls do, because closest to your hand. This actually cause the zipper to open up, leaving the contents to spill over. The airline lost a few items due to this very poor design. My advise is NEVER leave anything in that pocket, and place everything in the main cargo area, then even if the pocket splits open, you won't lose it. This is the reason why I give 4 instead of 5 stars.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Bad design
best all around bag I have ever owned

It is amazing how much can be fit in this bag. I have easily stored 10 days of clothing and gear in this bag while on vacation, and at the same time, it is small enough to be a weekend bag for a family getaway. Well made and looks like it will last a lifetime
Pata-gucci doesn't disappoint. Roomy and durable.

I fit more than I expected into this bag. Much lighter and more durable than the Briggs and Riley I was replacing. Also love the green color because it is nice to spot your bag quickly on the conveyorbelt. Wheels and handle seem to be very well built and nicely balanced. I would definitely recomment this.
