Eagle Creek Centerline Loaded Warrior LT 30
I have been looking for discount luggage or wheeled bags in preparation for a two week vacation away from work. Your nearest travel gear store has recently started offering discounts on wheeled luggage and rain bags in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. I’m only going on a 2 week trip so I won’t need huge bulky luggage. My options were limited to duffle bags, and since I don’t want to carry a heavy load all the time, I had to go with wheeled duffle bags. Of all the discount wheel bags on offer, only one caught my eye: The Eagle Creek Centerline Load Warrior LT 30.
The Eagle Creek Centerline Load Warrior LT 30 is a wheeled duffle bag that is relatively large for a duffle bag with its linear size of 59 inches (30 inches x 17 inches x 12 inches). To help with its large size, the cleverly named Load Warrior uses compression straps to securely hold its entire load.
The large off-road-looking wheels are complemented by a set of sturdy footpegs, providing a smooth, reliable ride on all terrains. As an added bonus, the soft-touch telescopic handle makes for a versatile, adjustable handle length.
Made with the intention of squeezing from one end to the other, this wheeled duffle bag is very similar to a book, making it easy to access and pack. It also has a convenient laundry pocket, accessible from the inside, intended to separate dirty items from clean clothes, making it ideal for separating dirty clothes from reserved clothes. There’s also a lower “shoebox” compartment that’s perfect for storing your shoes and separating them from clean items (my shoes seem a bit too big for the compartment, but I suppose other people with smaller feet might find them useful for their intended purpose).
Going back to its relatively large size, the Load Warrior’s multiple handles are designed for easy portability. Convenient handles are placed at the top, bottom, and center for easy gripping and portability. The oversized, high-efficiency wheels worked well when I tried it on uneven gravel outside the shop, and they make the bag easy to roll and haul, especially with its well-balanced frame, which means it won’t tip over when left on its own.
All in all, the discounted Eagle Creek Centerline Load Warrior LT 30 Wheeled Duffle Bag is perfect for short one- to two-week trips. Available in dark gray colors with tomato red rims and silver handles. I bought mine as a promotion for the store’s discount luggage and wheeled backpacks, but the clerk told me they were usually priced in the mid-range. Even at this price, all of the features of the Eagle Creek Centerline Load Warrior LT 30 make it a reasonable purchase and well worth your money.
