I bought the rolling thunder specifically for road trips. My girlfriend and I needed a luggage that would hold both of our gear, and normal non outdoor essentials. I have used it for mountain biking (car camping) trips, snowboarding, and a road trip to Riudoso.

It has been carried upstairs with the handles and rolled around on dirt, grass, and puddles of water with no problem. It is reinforced in all of the right places along with not having to much unnecessary material. My girlfriend and I have been able to pack 3 days worth of clothes each along with both of our gear. It arrived within 3 business days!

    Love this roller. Needed something to take over a months worth of clothes to Europe and decided to buy the Rolling Thunder versus the Patagonia Black Hole Roller. Couldn't be happier. Great quality.

          Comments about The North Face Rolling Thunder Bag - 30":

          I have always preferred traveling with rolling duffles over suitcases and have gone through many brands over the years. I rarely write reviews - however, I think I have finally ended my obsessive quest to find the perfect travel luggage. These bags are high quality in every way. I bought the 22" and the 30" together and although they are both a bit heavier than I expected them to be, everything about them is so well designed making them easy to pack and travel with. The red handle with the side buttons are smart! The 22" holds about almost a weeks worth of summer clothing if packed with packing cubes. The 30" was more than enough for a two week trip to Asia. I was apprehensive about the Brunette brown design but the bags are really quite attractive in person and stand out in the luggage area. Very impressed with North Face!

          Tough bag with plenty of room.

          Comments about The North Face Rolling Thunder Bag - 30":

          This bag is definitely well made, and has plenty of room for a week long trip. One problem I have is that I also own the Overhaul 40 and I am unable to use the pass through slot, as the Rilling Thunder's handle is too short. Otherwise, it would have been 5 stars.

          Best bag I've ever owned by far!

          By

          Comments about The North Face Rolling Thunder Bag - 30":

          This is by far the best piece of luggage I've ever owned. I have a pretty large family and all my children are small and on a trip to the Caribbean I was able to strap three of these together and pulled in myself with no problem. They were extremely smoothly and have a system to strap them together. The handles are incredibly durable and rigid and the overall build quality is second to none. The roller Wheels spin extremely smoothly so pulling them is effortless. The size of this 30 inch bag is perfect and I'm always amazed how much can fit in there! I can pack it to the max and it never goes over the 50 pound weight limit. Some interviews have complained that the bag was Heavy to begin with and I strongly disagree. It is extremely light. Because it is a duffel design bag you can pack as much or as little in there as you want and use the straps on the top to pull it tight. So even if you only pack the bag half full you can pull the straps tight and everything stays in its place and arrives exactly the way I packed it. It's such a wonderful design. The smaller 22" carry-on size bags are also awesome and fit perfectly on every plane I've ever tried to put them on. You are paying more for a bag of this quality but you will not regret it!

          We travel a lot and broke the wheel on another bag. There was no way of replacing it so we started shopping around for a new bag. We have a lot of TNF products so investigated this one. It's well built and very practical. There is also a lifetime guarantee on the wheels and they will be replaced for free if ever break. We travelled with this bag and had no issues whatsoever. It held a lot of stuff, was easy to haul around. The price is reasonable given this is the last bag we will ever need. Would recommend +++

          The quality of this bag is top-notch, which it should due to the price. The price is definitely worth it though. Although it is a little heavy, the bag is not only stylish but also tough and spacious. I love the interior as well as numerous pockets.

                Excellent quality, it fits a lot more stuff than you think, and it is very easy to roll. I like the separate compartment, that you can use to put shoes or dirty clothes, to separate from the main compartment. I'd suggest to have the zipper that you can also put a lock on for this separate compartment, similar to the zipper on the main compartment. I would definitely buy again.

                      I bought this for ski trips and it is perfect. I liked it so much I bought the 19 and 22 inch wheeled duffle. It looks and works better then the patagonia.

                        I bought this bag for my son, who is a Junior in college and travels back and forth from Wisconsin to PA. It's super durable, good looking and functional -- the wheels are critical for lugging back and forth!

                                The bag was recommended to me by a colleague who had used his for years. I've had the bag for about six months and it has been strapped and unstrapped to the cargo floor on a half dozen trips. No signs of wear, the water resistant material has already protected my belongings. The wheels run smooth and the handle is sturdy.

                                  I love the Rolling Thunder 30! I've been watching it for 4 years. Love the big wheels and sturdy handle. Carries big weight and rolls so smoothly. Typically travel with my girlfriend and fits everything we need for the weekend warrior trip to the week long all-inclusive. (Sometimes need to carry extra backpack because "she" needs more space lol)

                                  The water resistance cover and the extra durable fabric gives me a sense of extra security that my stuff will arrive safely.

                                  Best purchase you'll ever make.

                                      The Rolling Thunder is an excellent bag – put together well, nicely appointed, sturdy and solid. It's impossible to go wrong with this bag, or any of the North Face wheeled bags… I have one of each size now and they've helped haul me and my family all over.

                                          I use this for family trips and / or skiing trips. Fits so much, you need to be careful not to make too heavy. Very sturdy construction, easy to maneuver and stylish! Buying the carry-on too.
