Large Lighthouse Duffel Bag
Strap broke after 1st use
I purchased this bag for my daughter who is in college and she loved the bag; however, the strap broke off after the 1st use. No the bag was not over packed and was not used for airport travel. Very disappointed!
I would have returned the bag but I had it monogrammed and unable to return.

I bought several Lands End duffels for many family members for the holidays. They LOVE them! I had most of them embroidered with their name. They are so happy with them. They are very well made and look great. I will order one for me and my husband soon. You will not be sorry!

Great for air travel
The weight allotment goes towards your gear--not spent on your suitcase. It is bulky, but we just use the carts at the airport and we are fine. Perfect for college overseas. Thanks, Lands End

Good for long trips/easy to store
We have two of these for our 9 and 7 year old boys. Bought for sleepovers - too big for that purpose but it worked great for a 4 day trip. We had a problem with the strap latch but Lands End sent a replacement in the mail so that is great. There is no "form" to the bag, which I have read others as a negative - to me, it is okay because it makes the tote easy to store in a closet. If that doesn't bother you, then this is a great tote.

I would really like to see rollers on this bag. As big as it is, when it's fully packed, I bet it will feel like "a ton" when you have to carry and lug it around. I would not mind paying a bit more for the rollers.
ARE YOU LISTENING LAND'S END???

Very large and boxy
The quality of the duffel was great, but it was just a bit too large and boxy for what we needed, so we returned it for the medium.
I looks like it would hold a lot though, if that is what you need.

A bit too large and floppy
Great bag! The quality of the fabric is good with lots of sturdy handles. My problem is that for packing with clothing and heavy items, the bag is too floppy. There is no internal structure (I was looking for a light weight bag without rollers) and this allows it to fold in half and is hard to carry. However, if you were using it for packing large, bulky items or items that are stiff in nature, this would be great. I am returning it for the next size down.

Good quality materials but would prefer more structure to the bag.
I bought this bag as an experiment since I continue to prefer Lands' End for its product quality. I was mainly disappointed because the bag lacked some rigidity qualities I like in a piece of luggage like this. This bag had nothing to give it rigidity other than from it's contents and how fully the bag was packed. The material and construction quality appeared up to Lands' End standards, just not what I prefer.

Perfect for College
Bought this for my sons trip to college, wanted something as big as we could get within the airlines size restriction and light enough that our 50lb weight limit would be mostly clothes, not the weight of the bag! We also wanted a bag that could be stored in the dorm easily and this folds down small. Done, done and done.

Excellent camp trunks
I ordered 2 of these duffles and can understand some of the other's complaints about this product. I do not think it is really appropriate for air travel but is fantastic for packing kids up for sleep away camp or college. It holds a ton and the fabric is perfect for this type of job. If it was heavier you would never be able to pick it up with all the items it can hold. I can not say enough about how thrilled we have been with this item for this particular purpose.
