airline luggage

We usually fly to jump-off spot for hiking/camping trips and I'm searching for maximum size luggage I can fly with, which is 62" (length + width + depth).  All the luggage I find on line winds up being total of about 57-58".   Anyone know of brand or model that reaches the 62" max?   Thanks

No experience with any of these as I drive if I can...not sure if you saw these by chance however? Looks like these are all in the 60 - 62 range per manufacturer specs:

I personally haven't used them, but word is hockey gear works extremely well... better than my methods flying. 

I have most recently used the REI Pack Duffel Bag= 61" total. I just packed my  clothes, sleeping mat around my pack/hiking sticks & it worked fine. TSA loves cutting open shrink-wrap.

Please let me know what you end up with, I'm looking to improve this category!

i'll check it out. thanks. I also just found several large, inexpensive 30" duffel bags w/ wheels on ebay that might work, with 60" overall dimensions.
