There are different kinds of bags, for example, the ones that you may pull or roll around with ease or, on the contrary, the ones that you have to carry. All people have different purposes, but sometimes the choice also depends on physical characteristics. Let’s take my husband as an example. He is very tall and for him it is very uncomfortable to roll the bag as sometimes the handles are short for him. Also he doesn’t like to roll the bag behind him. These are the reasons why he always opts for the duffel bags rather than spinners. Speaking about me, everything is on the contrary, I’m very short and, therefore, my choice is very clear – only rolling suitcases. It is hard to lift and carry a suitcase, much easier to roll it even behind.
Olympic 8 pocket rolling duffel Revew
ONE BAG WITH 2 PURPOSES IS A WAY OUT
Of course it is easy for any man, tall or short to lift and carry the bag, but for a woman and especially short that might be a real challenge. When we travel we have two different suitcases which means two different sets of luggage and I always get tired to first pack and then unpack two bags.
Because of it, I and my husband started looking for something that would suit both of us and we faced with the Olympia Luggage 8 Pocket Rolling Duffel Bag. Even from its name you can see that it is a duffel from the one side and a regular rolling bag on the other side. This is a win-win solution for both of us. Moreover, it comes in three colors: red, blue and black. The size of this Olympia suitcase is also perfect for both: 22 inches through to 26, 29 and 33 inches.
IS IT FOR BUSINESS, VACATION OR GYM?
Of course this model of Olympia rolling duffel can’t be used in terms of using it for business trips as it simply doesn’t have the right look for it. It is more suitable for going to gym as it has many pockets so that one can organize everything he/she needs during the training. Apart from that it can also play a great role when using it for family trips, when you simply put some necessary things inside, put the packed bag in the car and then take again somewhere in the park or elsewhere. In such environment, this Olympia rolling duffel will look really good.
IS IT STURDY ENOUGH?
The one and only con (personally for me) is that every time, you are not rolling the bag anymore, you have to find some balance for it, to keep it upright. The bag can’t do it by itself as it is simply not sturdy enough and will fall if you don’t find a balance. But I have seen many people who just keep it on the floor. That can also be a way out if you don’t mind it to get a little bit dirty.
The main issue noticed by some people is the sound the wheels make. Some people find it really irritating. Personally I haven’t noted any loud noise and it is not because I don’t pay much attention to it, but I simply don’t have it with my Olympia rolling duffel. But of course, it is clear that more modern luggage have a quieter wheels.
The price for this bag is quite reasonable and very affordable. It costs a little bit less than 30 dollars. Of course it is not the best luggage in the world and some people noticed the loud sound from the wheels, but at the same time you get a 29 inch bag that is very comfortable to carry for both men and women as one can carry and others move. Apart from that you get lots of space inside and outside due to the pockets. Yes, it is not the sturdiest bag but it also doesn’t cost you hundreds of dollars. And one more factor is the purpose of using it. Why would one need a super expensive bag to go to gym or use it as a family bag? I, therefore, think that this bag is worth its money.
If you decide to travel with this pocket rolling duffel and take it as a hand luggage for an airplane then it is not the best idea as the bad is too big for that. But if you travel by car, then it is the best ever option one could search for. Though it doesn’t mean that you can’t take it with you to every airplane – as the bag is flexible, the main idea is to not over pack it and measure before the trip, so that everything goes smoothly.
Generally, people with realistic expectations and understanding of how to use this bag and its purposes like it very much and therefore by it. And I think that for me and my husband it also turned out to be a way out of the situation we were dealing with. Though sometimes the “balance” thing irritates me. But considering all its pros and multiples ways of using it, I would highly recommend everyone to purchase it. No matter if you’re a man or a woman, it will suit both. It is also proposed in different sizes as well as colors (black, red, blue). For example, on the Amazon.com you can get a 22” inch size pocket rolling duffel for a weekend trip or short vacation. There are also choices in 26 inches and 29. You can find all these models on Amazon anytime.
