Best Rolling Backpacks For Travel – Top 10 Choices In 2020!

Now why would you want a backpack with wheels? Isn't that somewhat contradictory? I mean, a backpack is supposed to be carried, well, on your back, right?

This is, of course, true. But there are times when having the possibility to put your backpack down and easily pull it behind you is a relief.

I have to admit, as I age I love this more and more. When that is the most convenient choice I can still carry my backpack on my back. But when I'm in an airport, in a city or on any comparably smooth ground I can just as well pull it behind me.

I've done the heavy lifting for you (pun intended!) and researched the best rolling backpacks for travel. Read on and find which one will suit your needs the best.

Best Lightweight Carry On Luggage 2020 – Here It Is!

Don’t worry, your bag doesn’t need to be as small as in this image to be light ;-), but we have not compromised on the weight! When we picked which luggage to review, we had to decide what lightweight means for us.

We decided that the best lightweight carry on luggage weighs under 5 lbs. Some of them may even be considered to be ultra light carry on bags!

Best Lightweight Carry On Luggage 2020

Some manufacturers call rollaboard luggage light even when it weighs 7 or 8 lbs. We don’t agree with that. The weight limits used by some airlines are as low as 11 lbs., and 15 lbs. are common. If your carry-on bag weighs 8 lbs. in itself you’ve already used up half or more of what you’re allowed to take with you onboard.

Best Anti-Theft Backpacks 2020: Keeping Your Stuff Safe

Best Anti-Theft Backpack

Let’s take a look at what makes a backpack anti-theft and how you should go about choosing one of the best anti-theft backpacks for your situation.

It isn't an easy task to keep an eye on what you have behind you. After all, most of us don't have eyes in our neck (even though our mums sometimes seemed to!). This makes backpacks vulnerable and an easy target for a not-so-honest fellow human being.

To address this problem, some manufacturers have gone the extra mile to ensure that you can keep your valuable stuff safe. Let's take a look at what this means!

Most Durable Luggage 2020 – Top Carry-Ons And Checked Suitcases!

Is there anything more annoying than trying to zip up your bag at the hotel and the zipper breaks? And it can be really stressful as well if you have a plane or train to catch, and not really the time to rush to a store and buy new luggage to put your stuff in. (And how would you ever manage to find out what is the most durable luggage when you have so little time?)

Or what about running through the airport actually CARRYING a heavy bag, because one of the wheels just broke and made it impossible to either pull or push?

Here at Travel Gear Depot, we don't want you to have such bad experiences. Thus, we have scrutinized the web and picked out what we believe to be among the most rugged luggage you can find. We have reviewed carry-ons as well as suitcases.

Often there is a brand product line, which means you can find suitcases from the same line as a carry-on we have recommended and vice versa.

We will start with some general questions about durable luggage and then dive into the specific product reviews. Enjoy!
