Thirty-eight years ago I gave Battenkill luggage to my son. He is still using it and it doesn't show its age! This Battenkill duffle on wheels is my graduation gift to his son. It is durable, good-looking and guaranteed for a lifetime.
I purchased the Battenkill Duffle on Wheels back in 2000 at the Orvis store in Chicago. This bag has traveled hundreds-of-thousands of miles throughout NA and Europe both in plane and auto and I have to tell you it still looks new with just a few scrapes in battles with luggage crews at airports and doormen. I have no question my kids will be not only be taking this bag to college but inheriting it as well. Again great piece of luggage, well done Orvis!
I travel internationally a lot for business. I'm very picky about my luggage and want something that is easy to handle, durable, versatile and high quality. (I already own two Battenkill duffles.) I needed a very sturdy (but light weight) back pack that will securely contain and segregate a variety of valuables (laptop, camera, passport, cellphone, toiletries). This fit the bill. It's comfortable on my shoulders and easy to carry. Also functions pretty well as a briefcase at my desk. It's not a problem at airport security, is easy to stow in overhead space and does not seem to be as vulnerable to pickpockets as other, lesser-quality backpacks. Plus, it looks good. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
