Survived a fire
We have been using these gear bags for years. My kids use them to go away for summer camp. Well this year, the truck used to transport the campers luggage from the airport to camp caught on fire. We were lucky these bags did not catch fire, but the camp told us that our OGIO gear bags were the only bags out of 300 where the contents did not get wet or smoke damage on the inside...at all.
I love these bags! Durable and great protection!!
These are now the only bags that I will ever buy!
I use this bag for everything. It's awesome for carrying my wardrobe when I'm working in the field and its great for carrying my gear when I just need to move it around. It's been through airports and truck box rides and stair sliding competitions (yes, like on Nitro Circus). This thing is indestructible.
It has a convenient external pocket for wallet, tickets, boarding passes, etc. and a generous amount of different size internal lid pockets for riding jackets, clothes, toiletries, gloves, keys, tools, snacks, even a small laptop if you really wanted to. The large compartment separator works good for putting in a helmet, although I would advise putting your helmet in a helmet bag to avoid dings because the telescopic pull handle goes through the internal compartment.
The compression straps and carrying handles are solid. I don't think you could rip them off if you tried. the sled system is sturdy and the wheels have yet to break on me after a year and a half of almost constant use and abuse.
I have pretty well packed all the basics I would ever need in my life up into this bag and taken it with me everywhere and I couldn't be happier with the product. Cheers, Ogio.

I purchased a 9800 SLED Gear bag what must be 5 years ago, at least. I used this bag for all of my riding trips since the day of purchase and couldn't have been more pleased with it's functionality and durability and cool styling. I could fit everything in this bag and more, it was easy to clean, easy to handle and maneuver and nothing ever failed from wheels to zips to stitching to handles, until.... i took it on a trip back home to Australia from my new home Florida. The bag left my sight at Ft. Lauderdale all neat and clean and in tact and I didn't see it again until I arrived in Brisbane. What a job they did on that bag! All the moulding at the base was cracked, portions missing even. The wheels just folded in when I tried to wheel it anywhere and the side and upper back moulding was also cracked and offering little support making the extension handle stick when sliding in or out. I was so mad when I saw this as after all those years of MX in and out of the back of the truck and getting wheeled from trailer to trailer with not a problem, then I get a baggage handler that wants to make a meal of it. I'm here to buy another SLED but be warned the airline baggage handler!
Track Day Bag
I use this bag for track days and have to say it is very nice to have everything you need in this one bag so it's not all over the place in your truck or trailer. I can easily fit my helment, race suit, back protector, boots, and gloves with no problems. Highly recommended!
Burly bag to use and abuse
I've had this bag since May 2012 and have taken it on a combined total of 8 months of schlepping this thing all over Europe. It's hauled all of my parachuting and camping gear and protected my helmets. Its been dragged down many train station flights of stairs (not carefully carried either thanks to short transfers), endured baggage handlers abuse, been rained on, rolled through muddy grass, slept on, dragged up stairs etc. The sled system shows no signs of giving up - just gouges and scratches to the plastic that would have ended the life of a lesser bag. Well worth the money if you travel a lot and are rough on luggage. It will hold way more than the 50# airline baggage allowance, so keep that in mind when packing.

Best bag I've ever owned
I've traveled to Brazil, China, Sri Lanka, London, Paris, and beat the hell out of this bag every time. It's incredible. The wheels should have broken off by now, but haven't. It collapses when you're not carrying much and expands to the size of a couple small humans.
