big but hard to handle

I was looking for a duffle to haul all my gear down to patagonia for a 6 month mountaineering and kayaking expedition. I picked this bag because of its size and claim to being an expedition bag and that it had an "extension handle". This bag is big and it burly but it is a pain to haul around. The wheels are nice but the the extension handle is just a cloth strap, and as a result the bag is constantly hitting you in the legs or butt. Not the most ideal this so I decided to return it because it made traveling with a a real hassle. I got this thing so I could wheel it around but it makes it very difficult.

It's a trade-off for a lighter bag I guess: the advantage of not having hard handle system is to save extra lb. and allow additional gear in the bag (especially when weight is limited by airlines).
