About this deal

It's lightweight and easy to pull along - and has multiple handles so you can carry it the way that suits you best. Look out for bags that use ripstop fabrics. These prevent any small holes growing and becoming a big problem. Capacity

Sizes– The Osprey Sojourn is available in 60 and 80-litre models. Both are massive and unless you truly need a shed load of stuff, the 80-litre model will be way too big for 99% of travellers. The 60-litre model is more suitable, especially if your trip takes you to a range of climates and weather conditions – there’s plenty of room inside for cold weather gear as well as your beach stuff! In general 35-40L is enough for a short trip under a week (or those who are capable of travelling very light!) In general, if you are travelling for longer than a week, you’ll need between 50-65 l. Detachable day bag Rolling — When pulled along, the Sojourn is excellent. The HighRoad Chassis and large wheels offer plenty of ground clearance and exceptional stability – only the roughest of cobbled streets will cause a problem! The bag features a double-stem ErgoGrip retractable handle which makes even the heaviest loads easy to manoeuvre. The downside to buying online is that you can’t actually get hold of the product to try it out first. Size — The Lyon Cabin Trolley by Cabin Max fits just within carry-on specifications for most airlines. However, for some budget flights, it exceeds the limits slightly. Thankfully, the bag doesn’t look big or bulky, so you might be able to sneak it on. Not that we’d recommend breaking the rules… ?The Samsonite Sonora is also made from recycled PET bottles so you can feel assured it's an eco choice too. Extendable Single Tube Handle – with a tactile ergonomic handle for easy steering and towing through airports and cities Ensure the stitching looks clean and well done. Visible problems with the sewing are a sure indicator that more problems are hiding out of sight. Just to top it off, you also get two padded grab handles, loads of lash-points for added bits and bobs and some tough rubber feet to allow the bag to stand up by itself when not being pulled along.

Durability — Early versions of this bag featured several durability concerns. There were a number of places where abrasion caused holes in the fabric. However, newer models have reinforced plates over areas of high wear. Oversized 90mm Wheels – with steel bearings for towing even on uneven terrain without damaging the main chassis Adjustable– The newest versions of the famous Farpoint/Fairview bags are fully adjustable. The torso length and straps can all be fully customised to fit you exactly. This makes for a super comfortable carry experience, although it can take a few goes to get it all set up right! Wheelie duffle bags are often a bit more budget-friendly than a suitcase - plus, there are many eco options available, with many bags made from recycled materials. Best wheeled duffle bags at a glance:In an effort to travel lighter, The Hubs and I treated ourselves to one of these beauties each about two years ago. We have used them extensively for every trip since. Of course the whole point of having a wheelie case is so that you can wheel it as often as possible. So you need it to have good, study wheels and be comfortable and easy to pull along. Which fortunately the Osprey Farpoint Wheeled 65 is. There are however some methods that you can use to determine a product’s quality without needing to physically have it. Since I’m only 5’8, much taller people may find they have the same issue with the Osprey Farpoint 65, so if you can it’s worth going into a shop and trying it out with a load inside before you commit. Minimalist travellers can likely get away with a smaller bag, 30 litres is a good size if you know you don’t need much on the road.

Planning to get away from the cold British weather? The best-wheeled duffle bags are an easy and efficient way to transport your holiday essentials. Very comfortable shoulder pads with good padding and the hip belt is well-positioned for both men and women

Reinforced Internal Aluminium Frame – gives the bag a permanently rigid structure without adding unnecessary weight which is ideal for towing when only part filled Wheeled duffle bags are usually lightweight, so you can easily pull them along on wheels but also lift and carry them as needed. The shoulder straps are fully padded and lined with a breathable mesh for increased comfort. You also get an adjustable sternum strap with built in safety whistle. Moving down, lightweight, flexible hipbelt effectively transfers the weight of the bag through your hips for maximum comfort and support.

Materials — The bag is made from 100% recycled Cordura material. It’s abrasion and tear resistant and has an eco-friendly water-repellent coating. All materials and chemicals used in the construction of this bag are Bluesign-approved. Wheels — Eagle Creek’s Convertible Carry-On bag features chunky wheels that roll well over most terrain. They have a chunky tread pattern to ensure they keep rolling. When using the wheels, the bag relies on a single stem, crush-proof T-handle. It’s not the most manoeuvrable but the bag’s smaller size and low centre of gravity mean this doesn’t matter too much.

There are also compression straps inside to ensure everything stays in place when you're wheeling the case. Recycled 210D High Tenacity Nylon Fabric – which is Bluesign approved and has a PFC/PFAS-free water repellent coating Spotted in Guatemala. Not my suitcase, but I’ve definitely been guilty of this in the past! Travel with a wheeled suitcase
