With so many bags shrinking these days it's refreshing to see one bucking the trend. Samsonite invites us to carry the kitchen sink and a few extras in its Tote-A-Ton duffle bag.
This duffel is enormous with more than 6400 cubic inches of packing space. That's roughly the equivalent of a trunk, but no one wants to carry one of those heavy old-fashioned travel bags these days. This lightweight nylon bag weighs just one pound when it's unpacked, but its fabric is tough enough to handle overstuffing. Many satisfied customers report this bag handling overseas flights without tears or scuffs.
Samsonite has clearly put functionality ahead of fashion, but its range of colors gives it a bit of personality. This bright teal blue-green is my favorite, but it's also available in red, purple, and black.
The zipper is the Tote-A-Ton's major weak spot. It's quite small and simple, and I'm not confident it will withstand the kind of heavy duty packing Samsonite is inviting. I'd avoid putting it under any real pressure if you want it to last.
It's also disappointing that the short handles are our only carrying option. They'd work for short distances, but they'll be awkward to use if we're walking from one end of an airport to the other. An attachable carry strap would have made our travels that much easier.
It's hard to be too critical for the price though. At $60, this Samsonite bag is one of the cheapest travel duffels I've seen.
