  • EMS Wheeled Gear Hauler

    You have lots of gear, and at some point you're going to want to haul it somewhere. So it's a good thing we created this awesome EMS Gear Hauler Wheeled Duffel for you! With 120 L of cargo space, this duffel can handle just about anything you throw its way...and since 120 L of gear is probably pretty heavy, the wheels on this duffel make your life even easier. (You're welcome.)

    Features/Benefits:

    • Main compartment is made from a superdurable, phthalate-free PVC tarpaulin material
    • Bottom is made from a tough ballistic nylon with 1500mm PU coating for waterproofness and durability
    • Dual handles on the top make the duffel easier to pull, whether you’re right- or left-handed and allow it to roll by your side so you don’t constantly kick it with your heels
    • Wide opening with large zippers provides easy access to your gear
    • Large, zippered mesh pocket on the inside of the lid keeps smaller items secure
    • Zippered pocket at the top of the duffel lets you store things you need quick access to, or things you want to keep separate from the rest of your gear
    • Compression straps help keep your gear from shifting around
    • Durable haul loops on the outside of the duffel provide a place to attach extra gear

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Wheeled Gear Hauler:

        I am a treehouse builder and tree climber, and I travel all over. I use the gear hauler for carrying around massive amounts of gear, tools and rope. I have three of the gear haulers… so, clearly, I like them. It's surprising how much stuff one can get in 'em! I think that the airline guys are good with them too… but, man, those guys can abuse stuff, though.
        However… I'm a little dismayed that, on one of the three gear haulers anyway, a rivet has gone bad on the bottom and, therefore, one of the frame staves has gone floppy. I'm thinking and strategizing that I'll fix it with a similar sized bolt and nut, unless you guys have any better ideas???

        Great for ski travel

        By Zach

        from Chadds Ford, PA

        Pros

        • High volume
        • Large opening
        • Lightweight
        • Well-made

        Cons

        • No Id Tag On Exterior

        Best Uses

        • Adventure travel
        • Ski Travel

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Wheeled Gear Hauler:

        This is a really well-made bag. Construction is solid, and design is lightweight. I purchased for a 5-day ski trip to the Rockies and the bag did not disappoint. I had plenty of room for ski boots, helmet, snow boots, and other bulky items. I didn't need all the space, and the compression straps are a great feature to keep things in place.

        Contrary to other reviews, I like the fact this does not have an extendable handle. In my opinion it helps keep the weight of the bag down, and is one less mechanical piece that could break over time. I just pulled the bag to the side as I walked ( not an issue as I also use a rolling bag for my skis). The rollerblade wheels were smooth and handled the weight well.

        Highly recommend this bag, looking forward to using for other adventures.

        Decent Quality But 2 Annoyances

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Wheeled Gear Hauler:

              A solid bag I've used and it's been pretty good, with the exception of two things that annoy:
              1. The handle you grab the bag with when it's rolling is awkward to hold while walking. It doesn't stick out from the bag enough. Your back heels often hit the bag; I find myself wishing there were a longer, sturdy retractable handle instead.
              2. If you stand the bag up, it's easy for it to want to fall over. The "bottom" (where the wheels are) is not large enough to make it a solid base when standing the bag up. Sure you could just let it set down on the ground completely, but then you've gotta bend over to pick it back up again.
              Overall, I think this is more solid than many bags out there but these two annoyances suggest the design dept. needs to spend a little more time actually trying out designs before deploying them.

                I love the look and feel of this bag. I needed a soft duffel with wheels that would stand up to the travel I'll be doing while skiing in Italy. This is fantastic.

                Can't handle big loads

                By Yac

                from Montreal, QC

                Pros

                • Good materials

                Cons

                • No Retractable Handle
                • Weak Rolling System

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Wheeled Gear Hauler:

                  I used the EMS Wheeled Gear Hauler over the year as my main travel bag. I was spending the whole year climbing in Europe so I was carrying a lot of stuff, including clothes, climbing gear and camping gear. In addition to this luggage, I had a 100L duffle bag that I strapped on the EMS Wheeled luggage. It is a setup I've been using a lot when I travel with all my stuff.
                  Of course, it's very hardcore for the wheels because all the weight of both bags is on them.
                  After not more than a week, the rigid part between the 2 wheels collapsed and the bag was bending like hell so the bottom was scrapping the floor while I was walking, making it a real pain.
                  So this bag shouldn't be used for big loads.
                  The other drawback is the fact that there is no retractable handle. At first, I thought it would be no big deal, but it is. The bag is awkward to use and your heels keep kicking the back of the luggage as you walk.
                  Another weird thing is that the luggage is not very stable when standing. It often toggles.
                  Overall, I think the price is what makes it so attractive, but you really don't get the quality you would expect.

                    I purchased this product for a week long camping trip and needed a bag large enough for a sleeping bag, mattress and all of my clothes and gear. Also I would be travelling by plane and wanted a bag with wheels. This bag met all my expectations and more (and it was on sale!) Highly recommended.
