High Sierra Sport Review and Giveaway

I never seem to have enough room in my suitcase, and I always suffer from the overpacking syndrome! (Doesn't everyone?). High Sierra Sport offers ridiculously roomy luggage that is great for traveling, camping, or anywhere else on the go! They offer duffel bags, backpacks, upright wheeled suitcases, and more!
I received the 32 inch expandable wheeled duffel (with backpack straps) in the grey stripes color. This duffel is GIGANTIC! It has so many compartments and so much room! I can't get over how roomy it is!

Here are some stats about it:
Take the journey to go. Our 32" Expandable Wheeled Duffel offers a whopping 7,980 cubic inches of space, packing more compartments, functionality and access into one bag than ever before. It has tons of storage options, including a large main compartment that expands 2.5" for extra packing, an easy-access, drop-bottom compartment with hold-down straps for shoes and other gear, and a divider panel between the upper and lower compartments which rolls up to create one large compartment. It even has hidden backpack straps to carry heavy loads up a stairway or along rough terrain. With its roomy compartments and intelligent organizing features, packing more in will never be a problem.

Special built-in, high-density foam structure helps maintain the bag’s shape while minimizing weight.


Molded foot allows duffel to stand upright and also acts as a handle for easy lifting.


Large main compartment, with front-load access, expands 2.5" for additional packing capacity.


Drop-bottom compartment, with hold-down straps, is perfect for shoes or bulky gear.


Zippered divider panel, between upper and lower compartments, can be rolled up and secured to create one large compartment.


Divider panel between top pocket and middle pocket has a zippered mesh pocket.


Hidden padded backpack straps are stored behind the zippered padded bottom panel.


Recessed, telescoping aircraft aluminum handle system with locking mechanism.


Kick plate between the wheel housings protects the bag from abrasion.


SURE-GRIP handles tuck down flat when not in use.


Reflective piping for added safety.

I've personally never seen a duffel this large. I love that it can hold literally ANYTHING with ease. When you overpack a bag, it sometimes becomes very bulky, hard to wheel, or doesn't close properly. I don't have any issues with this bag! I love that it also expands 2.5 extra inches, WOW! I also like how it converts from an upright to a duffel. The versatility of this bag is amazing! I can't say enough good things about this bag!!!!

I left a message stating first of all, kudos to the company for sponsering such awesome causes-I selected Vail Veterans Programs-having outdoor activites such as skiing for seriously injured war veterans to regain confidence in themselves.
