OT: Large travel bag recommendation

Post by Dave Barter »

Any recommendations for a large travel duffel type bag with wheels? I need to get a set of ski boots and a week's clothes in one. I can find loads cheap online but it would be nice to have something that would last.

I may have one going spare Dave. Dee bought it for going on the back of her motorbike but it turns out not to be 100% waterproof. I'd need to check that it has wheels though.

Dakine split rollers are well worth looking at

A chap I know has one of these. He uses it fairly regularly and is happy

Otherwise, as said above, I have a dakine split roller which I have had for over 10 years and its still solid. Its a little more awkward to get ski boots in it but you can. these have changed a bit since mine.

Otherwise Ogio seem to be ubiquitous in the MX world

Otherwise, decathlon ones are pretty good - bought one in France 12 years ago and it's still going strong

North face duffel - no wheels but drags along easy enough or can be used as a sort of rucksack with both shoulder straps. Had mine for years and dragged it through various airports, ski resorts, dirt tracks and pavements...

Alpkit do a 100l (think there is a smaller version as well) duffel with a weatherproof zip and it comes with backpack straps attached but no wheels. Love it's size as everything goes in it and I can travel with just 1 bag. Had mine a few years now and its been bulletproof! :-bd
