Wheeled duffle options

Jump to last reply

I'm taking a tour (something I haven't done in a while, mostly have traveled independently) to South America in November. The four-week itinerary includes everything from tropical jungle to mountains to cities, so I'm anticipating wanting to pack a little heavier than I would if I were traveling on my own, and I'm planning to check a bag (something I usually don't do). The tour operator recommends "heavy nylon fabric, wrap-around handles, built-in wheels, and a heavy-duty lockable zipper. Please do not bring a rigid (plastic shell) suitcase."

I've done a lot of searching on line and I'm considering these options:

- eBags TLS Mother Lode Junior 25" Wheeled Duffel (

- eBags TLS 25" Expandable Upright (

- Travelpro T-Pro BOLD 25" Expandable Rollaboard (

Anyone with recommendations about these or other similar bags you think I should consider?
