Freedive fins and scuba travel bag

I'm looking for a bag to use for plane travel. It should fit freedive fins, also scuba gear and of course the usual stuff like toiletries and clothes.
I've tried the Beuchat Explorer Roll, but the handle broke after one trip and I got my money back by sending it in.
So now I'm looking for another one that is better suited.
So far I've looked at Mares Attack Titan/Cressi Gorilla, Mares Apnea Backpack (as gear bag only) and Osprey Rolling Transporter 120L.

Duffel bag: difficult to lug around? protection?
Backpack: too small, protection?
Osprey: expensive, heavy

I'm happy for any suggestions and to hear of your travel luggage setup.

Hi! I have the Cressi Gorilla and I think it does the job. Some carbon fins can even fit inside (the shorter ones, for example the Mares Razor C740, so it's pretty handy in case you're not allowed to take your fins with you, or just for storage)

for my last travel i bought the omer new tekno which would be a great bag.
the huge problem is that the zipper is really terrible quality, as the slider (cheap plastic) came off super easy and is impossible to get back on.

I had a Mares Attack Titan , for me was very uncomfortable to carry due the size when full of equipment. I sold it. I suggest something with backpack option or small wheels.

A buddy of mine get rid of his Tekno either, the zipper got busted.
