Speaking of the weight issue, my wife has a 20 inch spinner which you can basically push along with a pinky. She finds it amusing that I am lugging this big canvas and leather bag on my shoulder. And I said I am equally amused when her bag is gate checked or when she struggled with stairs or when her regulation sized bag doesn't fit in the overheads of smaller jets. She just rolls her eyes at my rationalizing: she knows I carry the Filson (for airport travel) because I love the way it looks and feels. Carrying one of the larger Filson bags like a Pullman or medium duffle does take a lot more strength than pushing a spinner. But if you have the strength, no biomechanical issues and like the style - I say why not? As someone wrote on this thread a while back: men are designed to carry heavy things.
