Expanse Convertible 29 Review


As I packed all of my things for my first family vacation, I came to a sudden realization that proved to be a game changer: I had extra space. My simple acknowledgment meant that all of a sudden, my wife had even more space for all of her things. Providing well-thought-out spaces, a bevy of zippered pockets, and easy access to all of your stuff, the Expanse will make everyone in your traveling circus happy, not just you.


Aside from all of the high-tech verbiage and the long list of top-notch materials, the simple fact is that this bag is built like a tank. The snaps are all heavy-duty plastic, the threaded wheels can stand the weight, and the zippers have a self-correcting function that means squeezing that last pair of pants in won’t set the zippers off track. Boasting a No Matter What™ Warranty to act as a safety net for those inevitable accidents, and a tough exterior, this is a bag you’ll have for a long time.
