Features of the Olympia Luggage 26" 8 Pocket Rolling Duffel Bag

Durable Premium-Quality Materials

Fully constructed using heavy-duty 1200 denier polyester known as "Protectflon", the duffel bag withstands the rigors and pressures of different types of items and allows you to reach your destination without a hitch. The superior quality polyester not only ensures durability, but also gives the bag a distinctive look.
Besides, the bag has a sturdy synthetic lining and self-repairing zippers to keep all items intact during the trip. Indeed, Olympia 26-inch Rolling Duffel bag is ideal for short trips, such as over-the-weekend trips, where only basic items are carried, but it can also be a great luggage bag for longer trips so long as it is not stuffed with extremely heavy items.
Roomy and Gorgeous
Olympia Luggage 26-inch Rolling Duffel bag has an amazingly deep and roomy interior that will surprise you Its main compartment has enough space to carry all essential items necessary for a long car camping trip or a weekend travel. Packing and unpacking items is made easier by the U-shaped opening on the main compartment while its rails do not consume much of the interior space.
Similarly, the bag comes in bold elegant colors of dark lavender, marigold, hot pink, emerald green, royal blue, red, camel, navy or black, allowing you to choose the best suited color for your needs. In fact, with its several color options, the Olympia Rolling Duffel allows you to go with a bag that matches your trip perfectly.
Nothing makes the 26-Inch Rolling Duffel Bag from Olympia more popular than its eight convenient pockets. The 8 pockets include 1 main pocket, 1 top pocket and 6 side pockets (with 2 on every side of the bag). Elegantly patched on the bag, the zippered pockets allow you to organize your items neatly, ensuring you are super-organized during the trip.
Apart from the pockets, the bag has a shoe compartment to allow you to keep your shoes separate from other items so that your shoes do not soil your delicately clean items. Indeed, with this bag, you will enjoy a remarkable packing versatility.
Decent Carry-on Bag
Strictly speaking, Olympia Luggage 26-inch 8-Pocket Rolling Duffel Bag is a little bit bigger than a standard carry-on bag for an airplane. Nevertheless, its design makes it acceptable to most airlines because it is not a hard shell and will just be around the size of a standard carry-on bag when not excessively loaded.
In fact, the bag will fit well in the overhead compartment of the plane and help you to hold lots of stuff for your trip. Therefore, to use this flexible bag as a carry-on, just make sure you do not over pack. And for those taking car trips, the duffel bag is a perfect choice.
Olympia Luggage 26" 8-Pocket Rolling Duffel comes with a hideaway retractable handle and a shoulder strap to allow you to carry the bag in the most convenient way. The top carry handle is sturdy and easy to pull, allowing you to carry the bag horizontally without problems.
To ensure the handle serves you well, you should not load the bag excessively as the handle may be broken under the weight of extremely heavy load. Equally, when the handle is not in use, you can zip it away so it does not cause you any problems. Apart from the handle, the bag has two plastic spheres at its bottom to ensure the fabric does not touch the ground.
Dependable Wheel System
Once you pack your items neatly into your bag, you want to roll it with maximum ease. This is why the bag comes with recessed metal ball-bearing in-line skate wheels to help you move it smoothly to and from your car or in and around the airport. The wheels move nicely and can help you to cover many miles with the loaded bag.
However, since the bottom of the bag is not made of a sturdy material, it is wise to wheel the bag only when necessary. Frequent wheeling over stairs or curbs may rip the bottom fabric of the bag.
