AKB188: "lighter is always better", Scuba Diving Magazine

April 2008, Scuba Diving Magazine - When it comes to traveling, lighter luggage is always better and that’s exactly what Akona had in mind with its <10 Pound Roller Bag. The bag weighs just over nine pounds empty, which is about three pounds lighter than your average soft dive bag, and it offers lots of no-frills packing space. It’s basically one very large main compartment with internal and external straps to keep your load from shifting. It will easily hold a full complement of travel gear along with that extra wetsuit or T-shirt you stuff in at the last minute. The three-sided main compartment lid makes loading and unloading a cinch, and the zipper overflap provides protection from the rigors of baggage handlers and carousels. A padded lift handle makes it easier to lift the bag onto inspection tables, and thanks to a nice locking pull handle with solid double rods, it wheels like a champ.
