A roller bag is perfect for travel. Whether for vacation or business, it makes almost anything easier to transport. When choosing rolling luggage, you should consider what the bag will be used for, how often it will be used, and where it will be used.
For example, if you will be bringing a roller bag to conventions and trade shows, consider buying one in your company color with your company logo on it. You can usually find a reasonably priced promotional bag online that can be shipped to you within a few days. One with your company logo on it not only looks professional, but is easy for you to recognize as yours.
If you travel frequently, for business or pleasure, you may want to choose a bag in a more unusual color. Roller bags are not usually available in patterns, but even a more offbeat solid color can help set them apart from the rest of the luggage in the baggage carousel. One in a color such as lime or violet can often be found online and can make your bag easier to spot so you can escape from baggage claim much sooner.
A carry-on roller bag can often hold enough clothing for up to three days, so you may not even need any other luggage for short trips. Carry-on upright bags often have extra pockets for convenient storage possibilities. Be sure your bag meets airline requirements. If it has a lock, be sure it is Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved or airport personnel could cut your bag open to inspect it.
Consider buying a high quality roller bag for frequent use. In-line skate wheels are often the best as they tend to roll smoothly on many different types of surfaces. Handle construction is an important consideration when buying a bag; if the handle is riveted to rolling luggage, it can be impossible to fix if it breaks. If you buy a roller bag with a handle that uses screws to attach it, however, it is much easier to repair. Concealed telescopic handles look neat and function well, but be sure that the handle locks securely into place when needed.
A computer roller bag is perfect for those who carry their laptop, or notebook computer, with them. They are often sleek with a hidden telescopic handle and look professional for business travel. Look for a computer bag that has storage for your other needs such as a power supply and cables. It should have protective padding and be made of scuff-resistant material.
A sports equipment roller bag, which looks like a large duffel bag on wheels, is ideal for members of sports teams who travel to games and practices. Rather than lugging heavy equipment around, the wheels do all the work. Sports bags are often used for baseball equipment and hold several bats and other baseball gear.
