21L Rolling Travel Bag
As far as telescoping-handled rolling suitcases go, Castelli's Rolling Travel Bag has all the standard mobility and storage features covered. Its material resists water and stains, it has multiple handles for all angles of carrying and hefting, and the two main compartments are further divided into sub-compartments to keep your base layers separate from your casual clothes and bibs.
Castelli finishes the bag with a few welcome details that help you get from home to all manner of exotic start lines with your kit intact, including a fleece-lined compartment for your head unit and skid plates and a reinforced bottom for armor while bouncing over curbs and supporting oversized carry-ons after being stowed. As an afterthought, Castelli also opts for low-density, low-noise wheels, which means your passage won't interfere with the dozens of hands-free cellphone conversations from the people waiting in line at the chain cinnamon roll restaurants in the terminal.

Great Travel Bag
- I've used it several times
Well designed, well built, and well thought out travel bag. The compartments are really nice. The bottom will easily fit a helmet, bike shoes etc and enough gear to travel light for a bike trip. Be careful how the top compartment expands as you cram stuff in as it will bulge enough to not fit in the overhead bin. The dimensions are exactly overhead size but the top half of the bag is not rigid, so if you cram it, it grows. The structure is solid, the pull handle feels solid and durable and the wheels are indeed silent and roll very very nicely. The branding is subtle and stylish and it's easily recognizable on the baggage claim if you do check it. I do wonder how long it will last - the internal zips and mesh compartment separators feel cheap and like they may burst with a hint of over packing. Likewise the outer textured canvas (?) fabric, while it looks great, scuffs really easily. This bag wouldn't survive a lot of checked travel - definitely designed as a carry on. All-in-all, great bag, worth the price - but we'll see how well it stands up to heavy travel...

I bought this a few months back and have used it when traveling by car. I really like the design. There is a nice sized compartment that can be open by zipper separately from the main storage area. It is great for storing a toiletries kit. Both sides on the inside have zippered nets which is handier than I anticipated. Helps keeps things in their place and can be flipped either way when opening without spilling everything out. I have been taking it on business trips (as well as cycling adventures) because of the way it keeps everything organized. There is a handle on the top of it which actually comes in quite handy when lifting it into the car. Even the spot for an ID tag is well placed. Of course, it has a subtle, but very cool, Castello branding as well. It seems a bit pricey, but I lucked out and found it on sale one week here at Competitive Cyclist. I have to say, however, that it is worth it even if you have to pay list.
