The Roller from Rise Gear Review
I am a frequent getawayer, so I have a plethora of bags and cases. But as always I am looking out for the next best thing, and Rise Gear has come up with it. The Rise Gear luggage is a perfect example of “wish I’d thought of that”. The luggage is as efficient as it possibly can allowing you the maximum amount of space. The key point is that it has collapsible shelves that fit inside, which can then be hung up at your destination.
Rise Gear solve a problem you never knew you had, until you use the solution. I never though about the pain of having to look for a tshirt in the bottom of a bag, or everything being creased, or clothes being mixed around. The internal shelving solves this issue, allowing you to sort and store all your clothes in a way similar to being at home. Then when you arrive at the hotel, simply lift and hang, then you can access all your clothes.
The Roller comes with lots of additional space. There is a pocket on each side, with a heavy duty zip. The side pocket is padded, and I used it for a tablet I bought with me. The wheels make it brilliant to carry about, especially with 4 days worth of clothes for two people. The size including the wheels makes the Roller to big to be carry on, yet the wheels can be removed if needed to reduce the size and weight.
We were able to store two pairs of walking shoes in the bottom section, then have tshirts, jeans and underwear for almost a working week. I was suprised by how much the Roller could take, and it was still able to be closed.
The zips used on the bag are incredibly heavy duty and didn’t show any sign of giving way.
