Usable

I am the above avergae size diver and my wife is smaller than average (the 2 do not average out to fit all the gear and weigh in too heavy for airplanes)Read complete review

I am the above avergae size diver and my wife is smaller than average (the 2 do not average out to fit all the gear and weigh in too heavy for airplanes)

I use the bag to transport gear to the resorts, but too big for a boat, it is tough, BUT the first use the plane crew busted part of the zipper (still using it tough).

Poor choice of materials and quality of construction. Pockets are largely useless when used as a checked luggage. VERY tight zippers - closing a packed bag is a challenge in and off itself. Very heavy. No direct customer service in the US to deal with defects.

Got 2 years out of this bag

      Comments about Akona Roller Backpack with Wheels (AKB144):

      So I have this bag for two years and it is done. The two fin pockets are ripped across the top. There is a number of punch holes in this bag and the pulled on the zippers are missing. So in conclusion yes this bag looks like well build one and very durable but, unfortunately it is not. At $250 I would expect a few more years out of it.

        This bag has room to hold gear for 2 divers. I was getting hit by airlines for excess baggage fees due to the size of my Aqualung roller bag. I don't have that issue with the Akona bag.

        Comments about Akona Roller Backpack with Wheels (AKB144):

        The bag is very large and will hold pretty much all your gear. Seems to be very sturdy as well, hopefully airport proof. Haven't used it to travel yet but there is plenty of room for all gear and some extra clothes or goods if needed.

        The only adverse thing I would say is that the dry weight (unpacked) is 15 lbs therefore, you only have 35 lbs max you can load for airlines which has a limit of 50 lbs without charging extra.

          Comments about Akona Roller Backpack with Wheels (AKB144):

          We have used this gear bag for two big dive trips this year - one to Grand Cayman and the other to Belize. Able to stuff two sets of fins/masks/snorkles/booties in with two full size Zeagle BCDs and still stay right at 50 lbs. The two regulators and large dive light needed to go in the Akona reg bag (also included) and this went on the airplane with use. Had to make minor repairs (add two bolts where two rivets popped)to the handle frame inside the case after trip #2. Seems to be a pretty good bag.
