Hardcass spinners may be great, but some travelers prefer the versatility of a rolling duffel bag. Toss it over a shoulder or, when it's filled to capacity, wheel it behind you. And when overhead space is limited, you'll have an easier time of stuffing a soft sided duffel among the other bags.

Below are some of my favorite rolling duffels. Make sure to comment you’re favorite duffel or weekender for quick trips.

It holds a lot of stuff, stands up to the baggage handlers and the bag itself is not overly heavy, I have not had one overweight fee yet.

Samsonite Luggage Andante Wheeled Duffel

The Samsonite wheeled duffel is great for those on a budget. The bag is under $40 and Amazon has a coupon available. The bag comes from Samsonite so expect great quality. It has a large opening for easy storage along with shock suspension wheels for smooth transport.

Amazon User Review:  I have used as my carry-on for maybe two dozen trips and have always been able to board without questions even with CRJ/ERJ's. The bag has the main open compartment that packs much easier with packing cubes and holds several days of clothing and more electronics that TSA is usually comfortable with. Stand up is more an issue with correct packing as there is not an end support.”
