/ Trolly/Rucksack Bag - Any Recommendations
Any you can recommend, and maybe why. Thanks.
i think snow & rock do them as well.
watch out for the weight. The osprey ones can be an odd shape, but relatively light. nicely made.
A separate trolley is more faff, maybe lighter. Even more so would be a couple of skate wheels on a platform you build yourself :-)
I've got an eagle creek wheelycase somewhere... it'll take me a couple of weeks to sort it out, I'm off for a course.
Sorry, ignore the osprey ones, the carry-on size isn't available in europe
Thanks so far for links.
My very first UKC review was for the optimus http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=266 I've taken it on planes as hand luggage a number of times, but budget airline hand luggage if being enforced seems so small the idea of a trolly just seems redundant, because the bag can't be very heavy anyway.
My first choice would have been the Berghaus Optimus, but as it is just outside the size limit for carry-on I don't want to chance it. I've been looking at the Lowe Apline TT roll on 40 about an hour ago, perfect, but at twice the price of th Optimus I feel there has to be a better deal out there. I'll keep looking but if anyone has any other recommendations I'm all ears. Thanks.
Not wheeled, but Patagonia mlc will do me for work, with gym kit, for about five days.
Got one reduced from outside.
Well made, wearing well after lots of abuse.
I have not tried one but Sports Direct do a few, from Kangol. Nice brown leather. Decathlon do a stupidly cheap one that looks like it will fall apart quickly...they have more upmarket ones.
Thanks Tim. That's a fine looking bag, and they do one similar with wheels. The drawback is that it is very pricey. Something around the £50 mark is where I'm at, hence my initial interest in the Optimus. I've a few weeks yet before I'll need it so I'll keep looking.
