Lands’ End FlightWise Duffel Review

by Nicole on August 19, 2010

Name of Product: Lands’ End FlightWise Duffel

Price of Product: $69.50

Where can the product be purchased: online at Lands’ End

Description of Product:Fees to check a bag can add $50 to the cost of a round trip. So the FlightWise Carry-on Duffle is designed to fit in all standard overhead storage spaces, saving you money with every flight. It’s made from 600 denier ballistic ripstop polyester lined in 210D polyester: a tough yet lightweight combination (because you also have to consider that 44 lb. weight limit). To help you breeze through inspections, we include a Travel Kit: a clear zippered bag holding unbreakable flip-top bottles, spray bottles and more for shampoo, lotion, etc. (Bag is sized at 1 quart and bottles are all 3 oz. or less, meeting TSA guidelines.) Web handles have leather padding. Imported.”

Review of Product: I was excited when Lands’ End contacted me to choose a piece from their new FlightWise luggage line to bring with me to BlogHer in NYC a few weeks ago! I chose the duffel since it worked as a carry on and would be easier to manage with the rolly bag I was already checking.  The duffel fits so much inside of it, I was amazed.  I loved the clear zippered case and bottles to put liquids into – makes security so much easier.  The straps let me carry the duffel across my body and were extra long and easy to manage.  I honestly don’t have anything negative to say about this bag.  I chose the chili pepper because I thought having a bright colored bag would be fun and it is!

I received a sample of these products to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.

Appreciate your review. Taking a two-week trip to Alaska soon and would like to limit my luggage to a carry on, wearing the heavier gear on the flight.

Have experienced travel where my checked bag had to catch up with me 4-5 days and two continents later, so would like to keep things simple this time around.

Looking for a bag that in addition to some clothes will hold my 21.75″ [folded] tripod, since I don’t want to check it. Sounds like this bag would work. Still plan on looking around locally but this is definitely a contender.

Me again. I did buy the Land’s End Flightwise carry-on duffel for my trip in March 2011.

Pros: Bag is durable, looks nice, and is true to size.

Cons: Shoulder strap slips easily, and the grip that snaps over the hand straps tore like paper prior to boarding my first flight.

Bottom line: Would recommend noting the above, but will not be using this item on my trip in 2012.

Note: Land’s End told me they stand by their product, and gave me a couple of options for returning the item either for an exchange or a refund, my choice. I returned the bag to a local Sears store, and the refund was applied to my account within two days.
