Another thoughtful touch is that the back panel and straps are on the top of the duffel rather than the dirtier bottom panel that touches every airport floor and sidewalk.
Without a frame, the Big Haul isn’t something I’d want to lug around on my back for long, as it flops around unless it’s packed to the gills, but it’s perfectly adequate for freeing up your hands on short jaunts between taxi and luggage drop counter or between metro station and hotel.

The two Big Hauls I’ve been testing are the 40 and 120.
It’s the best one I’ve used, period.
I often use a wheeled carryon when I fly to cities, where the roughest part of the journey is the ride to LaGuardia.
It’d be easy to skimp on them compared to a backpack’s straps, so it’s nice to see that REI gave them some thought.
The straps tuck behind a padded back panel when not in use, which is another nice touch that keeps pointy things in the bag from jabbing you in the back.
