    I posted the following review on July 5, 2010, but the link on Amazon is now dead for some reason.

    This is luggage that was clearly dreamed up by someone who travels. It features a smartly-designed double interior compartment which can be converted to a single compartment, if desired. In the bottom compartment, there's a movable shelf system, so that when your bag is upright, everything doesn't all get squooshed to the bottom. And because of the way it is constructed, the bag doesn't tip over when it's full. One nice added touch is the orange interior, a seemingly inconsequential detail, but it makes finding small/dark items a bit easier. Other features include:

    * three zippered mesh pockets inside the bag (one in the upper compartment and two in the lower)
    * three exterior pockets
    * an expansion zipper which increases capacity by 1.5"
    * four exterior compression straps to ensure the bag stays securely closed
    * a built-in ID pocket
    * a hide-away add-a-bag strap
    * interior straps to secure items
    * two handles at each end of the bag (in addition to the telescoping handle) for easy grabbing out of your trunk or off the baggage carousel

    Overall, this is a tough, well-made, and thoughtfully-designed bag which comes with a lifetime warranty. All my luggage is now eBags only.

    As someone who travels regularly, I can tell you that I love this bag. I purcahsed it a few months ago to replace my beat-up "Travel-Pro" bag. The two seperate compartments are perfect and I love how much stuff I can fit in this thing. Seriously, you could travel for a week and have room to spare. The only thing I don't like is that there is no handle on the side. This makes it a bit awkward for me to get into my trunk when it's fully loaded and heavy, but I can live with it.

    Love this bag. I always pack too bring too much stuff and previously used lighter weight wheeled duffel bags which end up mashed by the airline, wouldn't stand on end and would flip when rolling. The Mother Lode Jr rolls easy, stands up and fits plenty. I got the turquoise color and this bag very visible on baggage claims belts. I like the extra clip straps on the sides are peace of mind against zipper failure.

    Just used the bag for an equestrian holiday in the UK with paddock boots, half chaps, helmet, breeches, rain gear plus a regular wardrobe for touring in warm or cool/damp UK weather. I was afraid that I would be overweight for the airline allowance of 23 kilos, so I did not use the optional expansion. My bag weighing just under 19 kilos which means that I could have extended my bag if I needed. My bag rolled so easily through transfers at the airport, at train stations and in rolling to my hotel over cobblestones near the train station (no taxi needed with an easy rolling bag.)

    The full bag at 19 kilos is heavy to move up/down stairs, however when having to do stairs there several handles to grab the bag with two hands to do stairs. (I was able to do stairs alone, though slowly. This bag though heavier was easier to maneuver then my other duffels.)

    I've had the smaller Mother Lode TLS Junior 21" for a couple of years now and use it for business travel, then wanted something larger for longer trips. I absolutely love the design and construction of the Mother Lode TLS duffels!
    Pros:
    - hard outer case on the bottom gives added protection while the canvas top lightens the load
    - three good sized outer pockets with sturdy zippers
    - three outer handles (in addition to the telescoping handle) make it easy to maneuver the duffel in and out of trunks: one black handle at the bottom, one on the very top, and one near the top on front
    - four straps around the outside protect the zippers from pulling if you tend to overpack the duffel
    - inside bottom compartment has two removable (and removable) dividers, making it easy to organize shoes, toiletries, etc.
    - inside top compartment is divided by a zippered wall that can be rolled up and out of the way for bigger items. Two security straps are also inside this compartment.
    - colors other than black make it easier to spot on the baggage claim conveyer belt

    Cons:
    - I cannot find any yet. This 25" duffel has performed excellently in 2 trips and I expect it to perform well just like my 21" duffel has for the past 3 years.

    This is a GREAT bag! It has lots of room for everything I need for a trip up to a week and a half or so. It has several handy compartments and lockable zippers on the main compartments. The back of the bag is hard-sided, which offers shape and sturdiness, and the front is a really nice, thick nylon fabric. There are compression straps to help snug the bag down so that stuff doesn't move around too much. There's also an expansion zipper to make the bag bigger, if you're like me and somehow end up with more stuff to bring home from your trip than you left with. The handle is adjustable; this is great because I'm 5'9", and often the handles on rolling bags are too short for me.

    This bag is definitely a bag you have to check if you're flying — it's not even close to carry-on size. I did also purchase the carry-on version of this bag, and I love it, too, but I wanted something a bit larger for trips of more than just a couple days. Take a look at the video on the eBags site to get a good sense of the size of the bag — it's bigger than I pictured a "junior" bag to be, and I can't even imagine how giant the big version must be in real life.

    As others have noted, it is *not* a perfectly square bag; I imagine this is to help with the balance when it's standing upright. And it stands up very nicely. The wheels are well placed, wide apart, so it doesn't wobble when I pull it, like my old roller bags did.

    I love that it comes in a bunch of colors, too, so my bag is not lost in a sea of black.

    The only thing I would improve if given the chance would be to make the window for the luggage ID the same size as a standard business card. I really like the idea of foregoing a traditional luggage tag — one less thing to get snagged in the machinery — but it's less useful if it's not quite big enough to get my info in there.
