Great Idea, (In Theory)
May I begin by sayig my husband loves the Guy Stuff Bags. I believe he has nearly all the styles, (currently offered, and those from the past), and uses them regularly. Soo, I ordered the Roll Bag for him this Christmas thinking this would be another sure hit. It looks great, has all kinds of nifty pockets and seems like an innovative and very cool bag. Actually, the bag is great ~ in theory. In practice? Not so stupendous. One photo shows the bag fully loaded and another depicts the bag all neatly and tightly rolled up ~ to ""keep the clothes wrinkle free"". Well, unfortunately, once the bag is loaded it does not roll into a nice, tight, little bundle because hangers do not roll. The bottom rolls quite nicely, but as the roll nears the top of the bag, the hangers form a large and unsightly, bulging, wad at the handle ~ jutting out at a strangely Igor-esque angle. Unfortnately, this one is definitely going back. Apparently it was not sufficiently well thought out............or tested?????
Functional & Stylish
For several years I've been reminding myself of the need to purchase a roll bag such as this for my sport coats & dress shirts for business & vacation occasions. When I saw this online, and with a business trip pending, I decided not to put it off any longer. The bag performed admirably! The jackets & shirts laid in the segmented sections, (without hangers), came out of the bag as if they had just come from the cleaners. The bag itself is durable, well-constructed, and rugged looking in it's simplicity. I had a coupon which made the price palletable. I'm happy with the purchase.
First TA Bag Fail!!
I own the fantastic Cabin Bag that appears to be of similar material. However, this is where the similarity ends. The Roll Bag does indeed use the same canvas materials and brass hardware. Sadly, it is of inferior construction. After packing the bag for its maiden trip, one of the snaps ripped out of the interior divider. On closer inspection I realized that the snaps were not reinforced in the thin nylon material used to divide the bag. I also noticed that there was virtually no reinforced areas where additional stress would require it, like snaps and straps. Sent it back and extremely disappointed because it was a great idea...

Works as advertised
Far better than the typical garment bag - no wrinkles, and fits several days worth of clothes. Also fits into the overhead more easily than other bags. It can go straight in and hardly uses up any space. Or put it in length wise in front of some shorter bags/items. To lessen the "bulge" that another reviewer complained about, I use the hangers from the dry cleaners - easily bendable to the contour of the roll. The metal rod that runs the length of the top to keep it's shape ended up creating a hole and being exposed. I noticed it before it poked a hole in anything (clothes or me). I just removed it, and don't find it necessary. Great idea and great bag.
