I was a hesitant at first when purchasing the Rolling Thunder rolling luggage bag. I read the reviews carefully on last years model. Biggest concern was durability. Especially since others that purchased last years bag were unhappy with the bottom corners wearing out in short time. When I got my bag i was extremely satisfied! I saw that most of the issues were addressed for the new model. Love the size. Perfect for weekend trips and works as a carry on. Not to mention the great color way of the Black/Red Rolling Thunder. Definitely completes the overall look I'm going for when traveling for business. And the Lifetime warranty ensures me that North Face stands behind their products.

North Face makes beautiful bags with appealing color schemes and designs. The pockets zip easily and were placed with thought. The two external pockets on the new Rolling Thunder 22 are great for storing books and magazines that you can easily find before putting your bag in the overhead bin. The bags roll smoothly and quietly with their large rubber wheels. The RT 22 has numerous external handles and now includes a strap for attaching a secondary bag. The suitcase fits perfectly in standard sized overhead bins and fits sideways in a regional jet. The upgraded base support over the last iteration (Rolling Thunder size Small) should keep the bottom from crushing down over time and yet still provides just enough storage space for a few days of travel.

My only frustration with this bag is the handle... and it is a major frustration. The first few uses of the handle are always exciting. It extends and stows smoothly with no noticeable wobble and looks like the sturdiest handle on any bag ever made.

I used and warrantied a RT (size small) bag twice with broken handles before upgrading to the new RT 22 with hopes that the "handle issue" had been fixed. With both original handles, the button mechanism snapped and one side of the handle would pull away from the other. This past week, I took my brand new RT 22 on it's first trip. I lightly loaded the bag and babied the handle, thinking to myself "I'm going to make this bag last as long as possible!" The handle worked fine on my first leg of the trip, but wouldn't stow past the half way point by the time I boarded my flight home. In order to restow the handle past the half way point I now have to slam it several times like I'm vigorously pumping a bike tire.

Bottom line:
Buy this bag if you want a bag that will get complements from random travelers.
Don't buy this bag if you want a bag with a functioning handle.

        Nice size; I had another bag from TNF and the quality, style, and design are great! I could not imagine using another bag. I travel about 15 times a year, so my bag needs to keep up with me.

        This bag is great, rolls awesome and the handle works every time. There is a lot more room in it than you'd think.

        This is the second TNF bag I have purchased. My wife and I both love them. We travel almost weekly and needed a bag that could keep up. This rolling duffle has exceeded our expectations.

        Soft Side Luggage a Hit

        Comments about TheNorthFace ROLLING THUNDER - 22":

        Recently taken delivery on the Rolling Thunder 22" Bag and it has made 3 trips, well constructed and very light, but seems to be very strong with durable material, the lack of a harder shell material like its predecessor doesn't seem to be bad, the interior is accessed without opening the bag in half so that is a plus access-wise. Good wheel set and handle also seem pretty tough. Time will tell as we still have several trips to go in the next few weeks.

        High quality, design makes it small

        Comments about TheNorthFace ROLLING THUNDER - 22":

        I replaced an old Samsonite 22" rolling suitcase with the Rolling Thunder 22". The exterior dimensions TNF provides matches my Samonsite exactly. However, the Rolling Thunder has tapered sides, meaning the overall volume is much less than a suitcase that is perfectly rectangular. As a result, the Rolling Thunder is smaller than the suitcase I'm replacing.
        Other than that, the bag seems to be made with high quality... time will tell if it holds up to my ~15 year old Samonite.

        This exceeds my expectations. Keep making quality products. The only downfall are the wire frame bars inside the bag.

        Kinda pricey for what you get. Could have added a laptop computer sleeve on the back side for easier storage. Overall stylish and light weight works great for overhead compartments.
