The 511 company markets law enforcment gear so this bag seems to be meant for the transport of rifles and ammo.

That being said, it looks like a great bag to have for long term packing!

I'm happy for you. Now get packing! Even if you don't have a set departure date, it feels so good to have most of your belongings packed away in a travel bag(s) for some reason. Always be ready to pick up and go!

Getting out of this country has been a pain because I had to fix up my property to rent it out. Which means more time + money out of me it has been mentally exhaustive. I had to tear out the bathtub and tile this last week. Plus there is always shit popping up that I have to pay for.

Here's some pics:

It's pretty damm nice although I thought it was expensive at $250. After unpacking it I would highly recommend it for anyone taking a trip longer than a month. It's 40" long but still under the requirement by the airlines to not be considered an oversized bag giving them the right to charge you $50-100 extra.

It's very well built out of hard ABS plastic with oversized rubber wheels nice enough to handle the Roman cobble streets of Europe. It also has 2 fiberglass rods inside of it to provide it with extra protection, whatever you have in it.

And it's big, big enough to store a human body in it :shock:

You ordered it? From what website? Why didn't you just buy a bag or luggage case from the store?

What are the benefits and advantages of this expat bag?

I have been ready for the last year, this stupid property has held me back but the hard work has paid off. I plan on leaving In late December. I'm done with this place, it's not just the women it's literally everything from the food, to the taxes, the American workplace, my social life, most American people, filling up my tank with $100 in gasoline each week, crappy low quality service in America, depressing angry Americans etc. etc.

It's heavy duty inside out, lots of pockets to keep you organized, big but not unmanageable, gigantic wheels that are heavy duty (I once had a bags wheels break on me in the UK from the rough cobble stone streets).

And last but not least it's been tested and is used by the military.

The corporations and media really do have the Americans convinced that America is the best place on the planet.

Where did you order it from? What site? Can I read the specs of it?

So it is easy to drag through the cobblestone streets of Europe?

Many people even here in Taiwan still think America is some kind of paradise. It's so tedious trying to explain to everyone why it's not. Sheesh.

Oh sorry, I got it off of Ebay at a discount price you can find them on there from time to time and save yourself $100-150 easily.

Here is the manufactures website: http://www.511tactical.com/All-Products ... bound.html

List price is $329 so I got a deal. I don't mind spending $250 on this bag because I know it will last 15 years easily and get tons of use. If you don't want one that big they make a 32" also.

Here is a video of a guy giving a walkthrough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYyckDK2ydE

Another video review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IYr_X2kdVY

This is pretty much the only thing I trust Americans to make anymore is military grade/police grade gear. We still win in that area but not much else these days.

For some people they like it, the guy who I hired to help me with my shower wall tile is from Romania and came here in 2008 and he has his own Tile/Wood Floors business.

HE LIKES things like owning a truck, owning his own business, owning guns, Cheap BBQ, Owning a house, Cheap American Beer, the american bar scene etc. He even married a freaking American girl from Missouri :shock:

So for some people that makes them happy, for me I have been miserable. I don't think I will ever live in Kansas again in my lifetime, if or when I return it will most likely be California that will get my attention and money.
