Argos Wheeled Holdall
Advantages: Cheap, pretty, can use for hand luggage
Disadvantages: Topples over, flimsy handle
I am lucky in that I have family in Geneva and Ryanair and easyjet fly there very cheaply. To get the cheapest seat possible I only take handluggage and for this I need a holdall. I brought this for £14.99 from Argos. The main reasons I went for this are the low price and the floral design.
The bag 29 by 46 by 25cm, which is small enough to take on a flight as hand luggage. Despite being fairly small you can fit a lot in it as it has a 30 litre capacity - a bit like Mary Poppins' bag! It comes with a detachable strap that you can wear across your body. It has two wheels and a handle so you can pull it along the floor and fastens with a zip. There are two small handles at the top so you can carry it like a bowling bag if you prefer. It is made of canvas so is not waterproof. It is very lightweight at only 1.5kg.
I really like the monochrome, floral design of this bag and I have been complimented on it more than once.
One downside is that the plastic of the pull-along handle is very flimsy. I wouldn't be surprised if it snapped - although it hasn't yet *touches wood*.
Another really irritating thing is that when you are pulling the bag along if the floor deviates from being completely smooth in anyway it topples over. This means that the wheels are useless outdoors as pavements are not smooth. Because the bag is fairly small I just carry it with the small top handles when I am outside so it isn't a huge problem but it shouldn't really happen. On smooth floors like in airports it's not such a problem although it still topples occasionally.
I think that for the money this bag is OK - I will use it until it wears out or the handle snaps but I won't be buying another one. When the time comes I will pay a bit more to get better quality!
Summary: Good for the price but I will be spending more next time!
