Recently purchased a Patagonia freightliner wheeled bag. I have another that I have had for 5 years that is still traveling well. I elected to purchase another based on past experience. Unfortunately the new bag's retractable handle stuck in the up position on the second day of my recent trip to Europe and caused a major hassle as I was traveling by train and bus. Also the airline was not pleased when I had to check it for my return trip to US. We will see how the "lifetime warranty" holds up.
By comparing it to my other five-year-old bag - you can see that they have cheapened some of the features -including the retractable handle. The price however has remained fixed at about $300. I like Patagonia products - but my experience with this bag has not been good.
