Traveling Days-eBags Mother Lode Suitcase Review!!

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, then you've probably picked up on two facts. 1, I'm a clothes horse. 2, I overpack. It was those 2 facts combined (I guess fact 2 comes because of fact 1 :) that had me looking for a new suitcase recently. Lately when we take anything longer than a weekend trip, I end up with a suitcase, tote bag, and a separate bag for toiletry items. And, of course, a backpack with books and those little extra "necessities". I'm sure you can imagine the harassment I receive for bringing along so much luggage! Enter eBags, an online shopping dream for luggage! Seriously, if you're looking for ANY kind of luggage, you need to check out eBags.

Anyways, eBags generously sent me the Mother Lode TLS Junior Wheeled Duffel for review. This is an amazing suitcase, and they couldn't have sent a better fit for me! 

First of all, this is a larger bag than any I've owned previously. When I examined it for the first time, I kept exclaiming over the amount of pockets and storage room! Check this out:

I used this on a trip soon after, and loaded my clothes in for a 4-day stay. Usually, this would fill my suitcase. (I said I packed too much :). I didn't even fill one section of the Mother Lode Junior Duffel! In fact, I was able to pack all of mine and M's clothes, shoes and toiletry bag in here! That is seriously amazing, and for anyone who knows me, that is saying a lot!

See? Everything fits, nice and neat and organized! No more fighting to zip a bag shut because it's overloaded, and no more struggling with 3 or 4 bags to unload! 
In addition to all the room, the Mother Lode Junior Duffel offers great quality at a great price. On sale right for now at eBags for just $159.99, it's much more reasonably priced than many comparable suitcases. Check it out; with a suitcase like this, you're all set to travel this summer!

All packed and ready to go!
With the wheels and telescoping handle, this bag is easy to bring along on any trip, and makes packing and traveling easy!

"When we set out to design the new Mother Lode wheeled duffels, we first turned to the experts – our Customers. Combing through thousands of testimonials, our goals were to identify the most (and least) loved parts of the bag, what were the key missing features, and what was the over arching mood of our customer. After 12+ months of development, we're confident the TLS collection will exceed your expectations. We kept the best parts of the orig. Mother Lode and added a number of new features: add-a-bag strap, expandability, compression straps, more zippered pockets, a flexible bottom compartment , an innovative patent-pending backbone for rigidity, and beautiful fabric. Enjoy!"

  1. Great review; looks like you had plenty of room, and I love how bright the color is so you won't lose sight of it. Reasonable price too.
