bag won't stand up when on wheels,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rockland Luggage 22 Inch Rolling Duffle Bag (Apparel)
I like the adjustable size of this bag (you can cinch it down to a more compact size when you don't need the extra space).
However, in my opinion this bag is unusable because the end of the bag next to the wheels has no structural support (just cloth). Because of this, when wheeling the bag around you can't stand the bag up (e.g., while standing in line at the airport) -- it will tip over. The only choices are to hold the bag up by the extended handle the whole time you're in line, or close down the handle and set it down on the base (at which point you have to pick up the bag every time you move forward in line).
Also when my bag arrived it smelled strongly like creosote. I left it sitting outside in the sunshine for 4-5 days to get rid of (most of) the smell.

Another reviewer for this same product on eBags said that they learned to pack the heaviest items toward the side of the duffel with the wheels.
This method helped them prevent the bag from tipping.
Just thought it might help. :)
