Yeah, we will be on a catamaran, so soft sided luggage is a must. We are boaters so we can totally appreciate the need to conserve space. Stowing large, bulky items is always a challenge.

I have a Timberland rolling duffel but it ripped after one use. I think it was just a defect in the sewing of the seam. It was gently used one time and not overstuffed. I got it at TJ Maxx, maybe that had something to do with it. But I do love that bag!
Wheels up for us in 7 days!!!!

We have an Olympia 22 that we use as a carry-on sometimes. If you stuff it as full as you can possibly get it then, yes, you are going to have trouble fitting it into the overhead, and the airline may force you to check it. If you do not over-pack, though, it will fit fine.

Its basic dimensions are 22x12x12. The 22x12 part is fine. it is when you stuff it all the way to 12" deep that you start to have problems. If you can compact the depth down to 7 or 8 inches you will absolutely not have a problem. At 9-10 inches it gets to be a squeeze. Beyond that is when you might have a problem.

Good luck.

We use rolling duffel bags that collapse pretty flat.
They are not as collapsible as totally soft-side duffels, but a good compromise. I'm too old to be hauling around traditional duffel bags.

I can sail a month with one backpack and my laptop bag. Everything is rolled in packing cubes, amazing how much you can squeeze in
