Hi folks:

Planning our 14-day ED -- half of our trip will be with our new baby and the other half will be without. Although having a normal carryon with rollers will be just fine when we are with our newborn (along with daypacks), I question what we should do on legs without the car?

I like the idea of those backpacks (ala The Amazing Race :bigpimp: ) that can easily hold several changes of clothing, toiletries, and more, I don't know if would be worth buying those for the trip...and would we miss rollers? Plus, there are some that have rollers but I don't know if it's worth the price or awquardness of backpacks with rollers.

Or, would we suffice with the regular carryon with rollers? Any thoughts?

Thanks!

How you will you be travelling w/o the car? Will you be constantly running from one place to another or will you be spending a few days here and there?

You might want to try the Eagle Creek Switchback Max 22 or Crossroads 22. Both are carryon legal and can be moved with the built in wheels/handle or on the back with backpack straps. My wife and I are travelling around the world and have picked one of each of these bags as our only luggage (other than a camera) for three months. They're portable, strong and functional and sound like they may meet your requirements too.

I travel a lot for business, and always am with my TravelPro 4SE, which is a airline qualified roll-aboard ( limit is defined as 45 linear inches total of all dimensions). I take this on vacations and business trips (my wife has a similar delsey) and never check-in baggage.

We were on a 5 country trip recently for a month (Asia, Aus, NZ, etc), and we had plenty of stuff with us together with a backpack (one with wheels, and one without) for the quick and short excursions.

Hope this helps.

Victorinox (The Swiss Army Knife People) makes several sizes of wheeled backbacks. I have two and my wife and I have spent two weeks on several trips with just the two units. They also come with a separate attachable day pack. We use them as carry ons and use the Day pack for junk used on the plane:thumbup:

They are usually on sale at www.reioutlet.com.

Cheers
