Confirm the size FIRST! Misleading info!
on 24 April 2014
I have just returned this bag to Amazon (refund issued 24/04/14) due to the size being misleading and have notified them of the details mentioned below. At time of writing the Product Description is as follows:
Measurements Approximately: Height - 12 inch (31 cm) Depth - 12 inch (31 cm) Width - 19 inch (49 cm)
(Only the measurement info quoted)
However, the Product Details states:
Product Dimensions: 60 x 29 x 29 cm
(Again, only the measurement details quoted)
When ordering I only noticed the first measurements contained within the description which would have been ideal for me as I wanted it to replace the current sports bag I use for flights on short international trips but the product dimensions (and the actual size of the bag) are too big for me to use in this manner. Amazon were fantastic in their handling of the return with a home pick up via courier on Tuesday and a full refund issued by Thursday.
The bag itself it has to be said was rather a disappointment actually. There is nothing 'wrong' with it but it hardly stands out as a great purchase. the bag itself is very much the same as any other standard sports bag that you would get from a generic manufacturer for far cheaper. The logo is printed on down one side and the bag has no other ID markings. Another thing to know is that the end pocket at one end that acts to separate the main compartment does so by an excessive amount. My old sports bag did the same and was large enough for a pair of boots (chunky Cat boots) and a couple of small items stuffed in around them, but the pocket in the Adidas bag nearly reaches the full length of the main compartment. This may well be personal preference but it is something you should take in to account.
Personally I don't think I will buy a bag again online without first actually going to a retailer, finding a model that perfectly suits me and then finding the cheapest price for the EXACT model I choose.
