I do my best to write honest reviews, which can at times be hard when it's one of your favorite gear and apparel companies and the gear misses the mark for you. I have been using the Black Hole 100L wheeled bag for I think three years now. I think I can give a considered review at this time. I have only used this bag for domestic air travel with Delta and American and will limit my comments to domestic travel. I am an adventurous traveler from start to finish. I have put this bag through it's paces and have been very pleased with it's performance. I fly out of Minneapolis St. Paul International (MSP) via the Fridley Station Light Rail park and ride. I park free for 7 nights here(sometimes 9). Every time, I park my car and wheel the bag over 100 yards of concrete lot, curbs and a bit of cobblestone across the street over another curb and across some grass to the 52A bus stop. I drag the bag onto the bus and ride the one stop to the Minneapolis metro rail blue line. I drag the bag off the bus across the concrete sidewalk and cobblestones of the rail station. Wheel it onto the train, wheel it off the train across the platform and up two escalators and thru the airport. Baggage handlers then throw it around like 800lb gorillas and I pick it up in baggage claim. The adventure does not end here if I don't rent my car at the airport. Lets say I'm flying into Seattle where the rental car prices are jacked up so the city can pay for new stadiums and such. In this case I wheel the bag from baggage claim thru the airport and across the flyway bridge and onto Seattle light rail. Up to North Seattle and wheel it off the train, across the platform and up two escalators and out onto the street. Two more blocks of concrete and curbs to the Alamo location. On one trip i arrived at the rail station park and ride just as the heavens opened up. The100yrd. walk to the bus stop was like walking under a waterfall with inch deep puddles in the lot. My Lowe Pro canvas camera bag was soaked thru. Good thing my camera and electronics were in a two gallon zip locs. The Black Hole bag had some wetness inside, but actually held up well in the 20min. deluge it took. Way better than the canvas Lowe Pro bag. I have done this with the Black Hole 100L many times all around the country. The wheels have been rock steady, no discernable damage other than scratches. I have been waiting for the wheels to fail...they have not. The bag it's self has no tares or rips, only some pretty light scratches on the rear plastic rails. The telescoping handle still solid. The YKK zippers and track...good to go. Never a problem with bag size and the airlines. My experience with the 100L wheeled bag has been so good that I purchased the 55L duffel(non-wheeled) and the 70L(non-wheeled) along with the MLC Black Hole. That's it...I say buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Making the black hole even better!
- I've put it through the wringer
Is it possible to make a great duffel bag even better? Just add wheels! This bag is awesome for travel. The bag is lightweight so you aren't losing those precious weight allowance pounds to your luggage. On a recent two week vacation, my wife and I were able to just share this bag which made it easy on me as her personal baggage carrier. Great piece of luggage.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
While this bag is dauntingly large; however, I am really impressed with the durability and space that this bag offers. I was able to fit everything that I needed for my trip PLUS more. Honestly, I over packed for a week long vacation PLUS I was able to include gear, my siblings extra items, and a backpack that I was planning on using during the trip. Additionally, the bag was so easy to travel with due to the wheels and the handles and made airport travel super easy. The bag also withstood the brutal airport handling nicely. I would definitely recommend any of the Black Hole Duffels for any kind of travel; they are the best!

The PERFECT ski bag
- I've put it through the wringer
I purchased this bag to replace a 20 year old Salomon ski bag that had finally seen its last guys trip hauling ski gear, tylenol and bourbon. I wanted something that was rugged and heavy duty enough takeover the duties of its predecessor. Big wheels, thick lining, heavy-duty zippers; THIS IS THE BAG! Ski boots, helmet, ski pants, jacket, 2 pairs jeans, 4 flannels, 2 half-zip sweaters, swim trunks, 5 t shirts, 2 pairs gloves, 3 base layers, 5 smart wools, toiletries and a bottle of George T Stagg with room to spare. I don't normally write reviews but when buying a $350 bag to take over the duty of a kickass classic I thought it necessary to share with others. If you need a big bag that will be durable enough for your guys trip then this is the bag.
