Obviously designed with flying firmly in mind, this bag suits the size restrictions of even the strictest airlines, measuring 36x20x53cm. It’s reasonably lightweight too, at 4kg.

Uniquely in this group, this roller bag features four wheels rather than two, which is great when you’re queuing and want to nudge the bag forward with your foot rather than reach down to grab the handle every time you move.

It’s also neat for pushing or pulling the bag sideways through narrow gaps and aeroplane aisles.

The downside is that none of the wheels have locking mechanisms, so you have to be wary about putting it down on a slope.

There’s plenty of room inside, with masses of dividers for almost endless configuration options.

Verdict
Pros… Has four wheels, complies with carry-on limits.
Cons… No separate laptop or tablet compartment.
WE say… Made for air travel, it comes into its own in airports.

Score: 4/5
