Product Features

  • Full-size U-shaped double zip opening for easy loading. Opening measures approximately 14” x 19”
  • Zippered mesh pocket under the front panel measures 13.5” x 18.5”
  • Fold-up wire-framed wings apply support to the feet section, allowing the duffel to stand upright even when fully loaded, as well as adding definition to the upper section. Fold the wings down when storage space is an issue.
  • Zippered mesh pockets along each wing for added organization
  • Two interior tie-tapes have extra webbing length for easier adjustments. Upper compartment measures 7” deep.
  • Forehead pocket provides easy access to a large volume pocket. The lining floats, allowing you to choose how much of the pocket to use.
  • External zippered side pocket has a built-in ID pocket – there’s no chance of losing a luggage tag in travel.
  • Classic duffel handle is secured with four buckles. No hook & loop handle wrap to deal with – plus the handle can be completely removed for those who prefer to go without.
  • Extra deep lower compartment measures 28.5” x 17.5” x 7” and has the following features:
  •    Padded perimeter walls that allow oddly shaped items some flexibility when packing – easily capable of holding gear ranging from downhill ski boots to scuba fins
  •    Two moveable shelves that allow you to pack as if it were a bookcase - preventing everything from schlumping toward the wheels
  •    Two zippered mesh pockets on the inside lid of the lower compartment. 13.5” x 15.5”
  • Convert the upper & lower section into one large compartment by unzipping the inside lid. Roll it toward the bottom and secure the two straps. Now you have one enormous compartment measuring 28.5” x 17.5” x 14.5”
  • Grab handles on both ends allow two-handed trunk-style lifting into vehicles. The top handle is spring-loaded. The bottom handle doubles as a foot.
  • Telescoping trolley handle adjusts from 46” (tallest in the industry) to 43” to 41” – no more heal kicking.
  • Trapezoid shaped trolley handle tubes are perpendicular to the load plane, providing maximum support.
  • Extra long skid rails along the bottom combine with a wrap-around skid plate for added abrasion protection.
  • Well protected wheels are hot-poured Polyurethane – the quietest wheels you won’t hear in the concourse.
  • Interior is fully lined with our signature orange nylon lining – finding fiddly-bits in the corners has never been easier.
  • YKK RC zippers throughout. Lockable on all exterior compartments
  • When used for airline travel, be sure to check for any weight limitations. The 29” can carry a lot of gear!
  • ***Correction*** This wheeled duffel does not come with photo-reflective zipper cords despite the features listed on the hangtag. They were removed due to zipper slider smoothness issues.

"It's truly enormous, almost laughably so. I bought this originally for a 12 day trip to London and Reykjavik, but even with several few pairs of shoes/boots and coats, it's just going to be too large. I ended up returning it for the 25" which should be perfect. The 29" is great, I love the organisation of the bag, but unless you take your entire wardrobe with you when you travel, it's more suitable for extended trips of two weeks or more. This is one of many purchases of the eBags brand for me, and I've yet to really be disappointed. The quality is excellent, and in several years I've never had so much as a stuck zipper or wheel breakage. The good thing about this bag is that it's relatively lightweight for its size, and it doesn't take up too much room when empty."

"I have owned the eTech 1.0 Mother Lode 25" Wheeled Duffel for many years and have been extremely pleased with the bag. Although I have had issues with the handle breaking, eBags has always honored the lifetime warranty which is fantastic! Looking for a little more space, I wanted to upgrade to the 29" however, the Mother Lode 1.0 line was discontinued. I was pleased to learn that eBags came out with the eTech 2.0 Mother Lode line. In comparison to the 25" and seeing other colleagues with the Mother Lode 1.0 29" Duffel, I was looking for a little more space and interested in the 29". The 2.0 is much more spacious than the previous version. All of the pockets and compartments (mesh, side, etc) are similar in placement within the bag however the interior dimensions of the bag are larger and offer more room than the previous 1.0. The 29" 2.0 is definitely larger than the 29" 1.0. The outside dimensions are bulkier. The handle is different and hopefully it will hold up better than the previous version. The wheels seem to be similar to the previous version. So far, pleased with my new bag and have always been pleased with any eBag backpack, duffel, and cube that I have purchased in the past."

"The 2.0 version of the eTech Mother Lode wheeled duffels get it right. I owned a set of the previous incarnation of these bags, and no matter how much I *wanted* to like them, I just didn't. The 2.0 version takes everything that was annoying about the previous version - especially those ridiculous "tent poles" - and changes it all for the better. The way these bags expand/collapse requires just a few snaps, rather than the tortuous tent-pole-assembly of the prior version. The bags nest fully when collapsed, which is wonderful for storage. The "floating" nature of the forehead pocket is ingenious and very helpful. The wheels on this bag are completely and totally silent. It's almost eerie! The handles and zippers are sturdy. eBags hit it out of the park with this one...and extra points for taking my original bags back for a full refund even though I'd owned them over a year. This is why I always do business with eBags."
