I'll have to weigh them when I get a chance. I just tell them that I want to try and sell a few pieces and see how they sell. I was able to pick them up locally from their warehouse. But cosco looks just as good.

I like that the Amaro's are 34" long.

Right, that is very good. Whatever the official airline dimensions are, I've never had an issue with these bags. I've actually used 36 or 38" bags before and also no one said anything...

Generally you're allowed 62 total linear inches.

I see now that the Amaro's are less tall and are narrower than the Costco bags...if you can check the weight on them with a luggage scale that would be great!

Amaro=61 total linear inches
Costco=60 total linear inches

Have you ever seen an airline agent pull out a tape measure?

Yes.

Wow! With what airline? Was the bag clearly over regulation or borderline looking?

I don't know, where are you? I strongly recommend, if you are getting a duffel, that you should get one with 3 wheels and not 2. The extra wheel in the middle helps so the weight won't bend down the middle and start ripping.

A duffel with 3 wheels will be very close in weight to a regular luggage

I like traveling with the $30-$40 30" long duffels that Costco sells.  Pretty light, can fit a ton of stuff inside, and they can fit into smaller spaces than traditional luggage.
