Sportsman's Rolling Gear Bag, Medium is rated out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Davidonisland from Ideal for Longer Travel I purchased this bag to complement my other Sportsman Bag that I have had for over ten years. I wanted a bigger bag for longer trips I plan to take in retirement. This bag provides the roller option for airports and ample space for all the necessities I need. I chose the soft duffle like style for easy expandability and storage. This bag is a step up from my duffle bag that has served me well in the past. I now have two Sportsman Rolling Gear Bags for my travel needs. I also, use a Quad backpack for the carry around needs. My only regret is the new bag is in the olive color and not the original LL Bean Green that my current smaller bag is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PKR8 from Doesn't stand up The nature of this type of bag is that it does not stand up on its own very well - unless packed full with flat items on the bottom when on end. This is an inconvenience when in an airport, especially if moving thru a long security line. A spinner-type bag with 4 wheels is better for that. Also, the wheels are a bit close together and the bag tends to wobble if grabbed in a hurry. Otherwise, though, the bag is very good - well-made and holds a lot. Reasonable price, too. It performs well for what it is, but I need something else. Nothing against the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineSubject from Way to Go! Some years ago I purchased the Medium Sportsman's Rolling Gear Bag with the intent of using it as my primary carry-on luggage. I found the size, shape and "packability" to be ideally suited to my travels. Using just this bag and a computer carrier, I could pack for two-week long business trips without the need to check an additional bag. The Rolling Gear Bag fits easily in most every aircraft overhead bin, is durable, versatile and even looks good. After several years when the hard rubber covering on one of the wheels split, LL Bean replaced the entire bag with a new one, free of charge, with no hassles at all. Now I and my Gear Bag continue to roll happily along and I have renewed appreciation for a great company that is dedicated to Customer Satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CWIJ from Great Luggage I seldom write reviews but after using this luggage to travel for the last two years in the Middle East and Europe I must commend it. Fits in the overhead and holds a lot. I have carried heavy bags on top of it and if you can balance them its rugged enough for that duty although it is rather narrow but I wanted that for fitting in tite places. A longer pull would be nice but it would be difficult to engineer that and stay as rugged as it is. As for tipping over that is not a problem so long as you pack the bottom end pocket a little overfull (slightly bulging). I would rather do that than have to lug around a built in platform/stiff bottom anyway. Best luggage I have owned and its travelled well over 50k miles with me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ColonelDan from My Preferred Carry On This has become my preferred carry on for any trip I take. It recently went with me to Alaska as both a carry on for the trip there and a checked bag upon my return and performed flawlessly. The multiple pockets are exceptionally useful and the main compartment holds quite a lot. I only wish it stood on end better. The end/bottom is not sufficiently stiff to maintain an upright position. I normally had to lean it against something to keep it from falling over. My other suggestion would be to offer a similar design with a drop bottom in the same size so you could separate shoes and other dirty items from the main compartment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BabsBlue from Wont Stand Up This bag would be great if it would stand up. We took it on one trip and it was incredibly aggravating trying to get through secuity, waiting at gates, and waiting for transportation with a wheeled carry on that kept falling down. We adjusted the weight distribution several times and it continued to be a problem. I have several pieces of LLBean Luggage from the Adventure Collection and love them all, this one, no. I returned it after it's one and only trip.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ExtensiveTraveler from A Legend Dies I purchased the large size, and when it came it looked flimsy. So I got out my Sportsman gear bag that I purchased in 1995 and did a side by side comparison.The older bag which was manufactured in Maine,USA, is made of a thicker more durable material. All of the seams and the zippers are double stitched. This bag has traveled the World extensively for 16 years, and has many more years left in it. The new bag is made of a thinner material,with cheaper zippers, and the seams aren't taped and stitched the same as the older bag, and the main compartment zipper and seams are only single stitched, where they need to be double stitched the most. I won't use this bag, for where I go when I travel is usually off the beaten path, and my bags have to be durable, for they get tossed around quite a bit.I gave it to a friend that just simply goes from cab to airport to plane to cab to hotel.This is a shame, because the Sportsman name is a legend that has obviously passed on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bozo51 from Doesn't Hold Up to Airline Travel I've purchased three of these bags, one medium and two smaller ones over the past five years and looking back I'm not sure why I bought the last two. They simply don't hold up to airline travel or rollong on concrete sidewalks. First, the fabric is frayed on the bottom. The wheels are probably too small. Second, the joints, also on the bottom are splitting open. Its a shame because otherwise the bags are perfect for my use.
