All good advice, thanks! We got a set for Christmas the year before we got married, and it lasted for one cruise before it was torn and starting to break down. It was a good gift, but just didn't hold up. I LOVE the 4 wheeled Samsonite sets, but they are way more than we want to pay for the occassional trips and cruises. The empty weight for the large LL Bean Duffel I mentioned is around 8lb I believe. Is that pretty light as far as luggage goes? The dimentions say 15"H x 30"W x 13"D and 5700 cu in. How does that compare to the largest size of a regular luggage set? Here is the link for the large rolling duffel in case anyone is interested. They have a deal from now until Christmas eve where you get a gift card after you spend $50 and shipping is free, so unless someone really advises against these duffels, we will likely go that route. :-)
