Hmm never noticed this on any of my bags and I usually wear blue oxfords or something similar.

I now only use my Filson duffle for road trips or one-flight check-in, and my Briggs & Riley for stops and gos travel.
50/50 on this one. It's still a hassle walking a few miles with a relatively filled bag but I still feel it works better especially when you are walking in crowded areas. No issue with duffle over shoulder or in front of me, no way I can walk a normal pace with rolling luggage.

I've used my duffle countless times over carry on capacity and it's never been an issue (Including RyanAir multiple times). Only time it doesn't fit on a plane's overhead compartment is on the tiny planes from Indiana to Chicago or something like that, but then they gate check everything so it's not an issue. I also got weighed the duffle weighed once in Asia but no matter what bag I was using I'd be over the carryon limit
