Nice pickup with the pullman. I love packing for trips with a duffle; its much faster compared to a suitcase.
I was not sure about the Pullman -- wanted to get away from clamshells -- but it seems like the best way to get the most stuff into the cabin of a plane in an orderly fashion. I like the way they look once they soften up. Apparently they don't make them in brown... would have preferred that to tan but whatevs.
I don't expect the Pullman will function well as an overnight stuff bag, so I still need a duffle of some sort. Small duffle would be ideal as an overnight bag; it is also the only duffle that could be used as a carry-on. Since the Pullman has me covered there, and it would be kind of handy to have something I could check if needed, I'm leaning toward a medium duffle or large travel bag as an overnight/road trip bag that can be checked for air travel if required. In brown, just to mix it up.
Med duffle is like 7" longer than the small, probably a bit big for an overnight bag but maybe the most versatile option for me.
