Poorly made,
November 7, 2015
By: Jess911557
"Took the bag on two trips. One of the wheels fell off while as I was on the way out the door for the third. Upon arrival at the airport, I couldn't pull out the pull-out handle. It was jammed for the remainder of the trip. To give Orvis credit, they politely promised a no-hassle exchange when I called from the airport, and then allowed a full refund when they didn't have my particular bag in stock (wasn't that the point of calling ahead?)."

Finally - I Found What I Want!,
July 24, 2014
By: duffleman
from San Antonio, TX
"Received my wheeled duffle bag after returning two to another company. I can't wait to use it for the next Adventure to Alaska! The size for a hiker/fly fisherman on the move is perfect! The bottom section is what I need for my hiking boots/wet clothing and the top compartment is perfect for dry folded clothing. The outside material looks very durable. The wheels seem to be of high quality; however, I have not actually used the bag yet, so will have to give it a rating of Good. Once I see how the wheels perform, I may change it to excellent! It was a little more than I wanted to pay for a bag, but well worth it now that I have seen the actual design and construction of the bag. Thanks Orvis!"

Outstanding Piece of Luggage,
July 16, 2014
By: rhv1
from Boston
"I purchased the Battenkill Duffle on Wheels back in 2000 at the Orvis store in Chicago. This bag has traveled hundreds-of-thousands of miles throughout NA and Europe both in plane and auto and I have tell you it still looks new with just a few scrapes in battles with luggage crews at airports and doormen. I have no question my kids will be not only be taking this bag to college but inheriting it as well. Again great piece of luggage, well done Orvis!"

"Took my new bride to Montana for our honeymoon, already had an Orvis suitcase on wheels, but decide to buy the duffle on wheels. Sure glad I did, it held everything including my stuff. Super construction, very durable. I'll probably be buried in it!"

Great Duffle,
July 2, 2014
By: adnezaf
from Milton, New Youk
"Went down to Brasil with this duffle and it served me well. When I needed more room I used the top duffle for gifts and things and the bottom for my clothes so they would not wrinkle. When I did not need as much room for things the top part collapsed to give me more room to fit it in the trunk of a car when on the back roads traveling Very happy with it ."

Orvis only for me for over 25 years,
June 14, 2014
By: Oogie
from Sun Lakes, Az
"My Orvis bag went around the world in 5 days with me. Minneapolis, New York, Amsterdam, Narita[Tokyo]L.A., DesMoines. This is my 6th Orvis, my new Orvis will leave with me June 30th and accompany me to Buda Pest, then to Amsterdam by riverboat then back to my home in Arizona. I can't bring myself to part with my Orvis bags, so my family and friends have their travel bags available at my home. Orvis never wears out, they are easily distingishable,and keep your clothes much less wrinkled than traditional stand-up bags.My new Orvis on wheels seems to be improved over past Orvis bags however I can;t imagine how that could be.Thank You Orvis for being my travel companion for the past 25 years and Orvis will be with me for the remainder of my travel years. One question however, your bags are so indestructable your sales would be much higher if this were not so.The availability of your retail stores is a real convenience now that I live in a more metropolitian area and I will recommend to all that the Orvis retail stores are a great place to visit prior to your next travel experience or while you are shopping. I was truely suprised when I first visited an Orvis retail store when I saw the wide range of Orvis products.Of course, any one viewing my statement about Orvis products can easily ascertain that I recommend only Orvis bags for your travel needs."

Excellent travel bag,
November 20, 2013
By: Jimmer86
"I bought this bag for my trip to Illinois to hunt pheasant and quail. worked great. 2 compartments works great for me as we were in tight quarters and I lived out of my bag. Held a lot of cold weather hunting gear. Wheels are solid and I love the bag."
