Each bag features a large roomy main compartment, adjustable, removable shoulder straps with anti-slip shoulder pads, carry straps/handles on the top of the bag and each end, reinforced bottom, and front external zippered pockets. Each bag is secured by means of a top zippered closure. The roller duffel features two plastic wheels and a molded plastic telescopic handle. The bags are being imported in size ranging from approximately 25 liter to 150 liter.
