Review: Luggage.com (CSN stores)Wednesday, March 09, 2011
How many of you all struggle with packing for trips? I know I do! I never seem to have enough room for everything no matter how much I eliminate. If I were going for a few nights, I would take an average size duffle/gym bag. But nothing ever fits nicely. I always plan out outfits for every day, and an extra one or two in case the weather is different or I change my mind. But after cramming in my clothes, pajamas, beauty and hair stuff I would never have enough room for shoes or anything extra. Then I was stuck stuffing an extra bag for shoes, or an extra one for makeup and toiletries. And who wants to carry extra bags? I wanted just one good quality bag that could fit everything.
So of course, I turn to CSN.com. They always have loads of things to choose from. They have 200+ stores with such a wide variety of things. I found Luggage.com. They have so many different kinds of luggage. Suitcases, duffle bags, small bags, giant bags, toiletry bags, garment bags, you name it!
I love how Luggage.com was so easy to shop on. There are so many ways to refine your search like: size, material, type, brand, weight, rating, style, color, pattern, shipping time, and more.You can find exactly what your looking for without having to click through dozens of pages. After browsing for days trying to get an idea of what I wanted, I settled with a rolling duffle bag. I wanted one that was bigger than the duffle I was using, which was about 2 feet long and 1 foot wide. So I picked this one:
The measurements are: 16" H x 31" W x 16" D
I absolutely love this bag! It sooo big! The picture does nothing for it to show the massive size.
It was a little hard for me to carry. I might have gone a little too big, but it’s hard to picture the size online. They do give you exact measurements though, which is nice. I love how it is so deep, so you can stack clothes up. I fit everything I needed in here, and I went for 5 days! I had all my outfits and extra. I could fit, shoes (even knee high boots), jewelry, jackets, hair stuff, makeup, toiletries, everything! It was so nice to have everything in one bag. I also liked how the zipper has very heavy duty and I can tell it’s not going to brake. It has a pocket in the inside and 2 on the outside, which is nice for small stuff. It even has a pull out luggage tag on it.
It also a rolling bag, so it has wheels and a handle.
The best part about it was…it was only $32. For a huge bag like this that is amazing quality, that is a deal.
I really love this bag! It is so nice to store everything all in one bag. CSN was really awesome to work with. All their sites are amazing and so easy to find exactly what you want.
