Detailed Product Description

Tough Lightweight Smart – TLS truly defines the new Mother Lode series. We've completely re-designed our best selling wheeled duffels and added new features and innovative functionality and performance without added weight. If you're looking for outstanding design, style, and function, you'll find it in the new Mother Lode TLS series.

Designer Notes

When we set out to design the new Mother Lode wheeled duffels, we first turned to the experts – our Customers. Combing through thousands of testimonials, our goals were to identify the most (and least) loved parts of the bag, what were the key missing features, and what was the over arching mood of our customer. After 12+ months of development, we're confident the TLS collection will exceed your expectations. We kept the best parts of the orig. Mother Lode: Moveable shelves, double/single cavity conversion, long handles, and a bag that will stand upright. We added a number of new features: add-a-bag strap, expandability, compression straps, more zippered pockets, a flexible bottom compartment, an innovative patent-pending backbone for rigidity, and beautiful fabric. Enjoy! Bernard

"I travel about 300 days a year so I needed something that was going to last and make my life easier. I was hesitant about buying this because I am used to a 36" duffle. I am absolutely amazed at how much storage is in this unit. Everything I carried before fits in this duffel with room to spare. I love the fact that it stands on it's own. (something my previous units did not do.) I love the compartments inside the bottom. My clothes no longer get wrinkled or squished. This would be the kind of bag I would have designed had I had time to do so. I have had it on the road with me for 3 weeks now and everything is going great. It is very easy to load and unload from a trunk and it checks very well at the airport. I would highly recommend purchasing this to anyone that is thinking about buying a traditional suitcase. There is only one thing I would add to this unit and that would be a couple of runners on the back so that when you are going up and down steps the backside isn't getting scratched up. This isn't a problem if you lift straight up but if you are carrying other things it makes it difficult. This holds so much more in a smaller space. Normally I only get about a years use out of any of the travel luggage due to the abuse at airports and such. I have to say I have spent alot more and received alot less. If this lasts as long as my other units I will be ecstatic. I will add to this post in a few months to let you know how it is working."

"I really liked using this bag for a recent trip overseas. It held everything I needed and wanted. It wheeled nicely. It has a lot of configuration options. I really like the exterior compression straps but I wish that they included the main top pocket as well. I also was very happy that EVERY compartment can lock. The look on the TSA agent's face at my home airport was absolutely priceless when she saw all the locks and asked if they were TSA approved. This bag can hold 14 packing cubes (4 large, 3 slim, 1 small, 4 medium, 2 shoe bags and my makeup case)."

"This is the bag to end all bags. I have been traveling atleast 180 days a year for 13 years and I have been thru dozens of bags over the years, LL Bean, Travelpro, Tummi, Eagle Creek, Samsonite, to name a few and none of them compare to Ebags, they stand behind there product as if they want you for a life long customer, I have never had a problem with a warranty exchange, or with ordering spare parts, and I have never been charged anything at all. Take it from me and my extensive travel experience, there is not a bag on the planet that will hold up to harsh treatment of airline travel, you will need parts, wheels and handles mainly, but eventually the zippers and stitching will fail to the point where the bag needs replaced. I needed a warranty exchange on my bag after 2 and 1/2 years, the best I have ever seen a bag hold up on my travel schedule, and Ebags sent me another bag right away with no hassle. I would gladly pay twice the price they are asking because there product support is second to none. Thanks Ebags, I am a happy lifelong customer, I have purchased multiple bags for family travel, and I always recommend Ebags to anyone who might ask. Don't waist your money on anything else, learn from my experience."
