      A good roomy bag, prefect for holidays

      I purchased this bag last year when I was going on holiday and was on the hunt for a bag to take on the plane as hand luggage. I needed something which would hold my stuff on the way out but which would also be big enough for me to fill with presses on the way home.

      This bag cost me £20 and it fits the bill nicely. It has heaps of room and the trolley mechanism is ideal, as due to the size, I tend to fill it so much I can't lift it, so it's handy to be able to pull it along instead. The design is pretty and a bit more trendy than the standard cabin bags that you can buy, which tend to match the luggage but are identical to everybody else's cabin bag. This instantly stands out and you won't get it confused with anybody else's.

      I have also used this as an overnight bag when taking city breaks and find it is ample for enough clothes for a couple of nights, with shoes and toiletries. It is a good quality bag with strong handles and a good thick zip so it doesn't feel flimsy and can easily take some weight.

      Overall, I am pleased with this bag and will continue to use it for holidays for a long time.

        Rose Print bag

        I love anything with a flower print on it as I think its a bit something different than just your regular normal boring plain bags so that's what really attracted me to this bag from New Look. I was also very impressed with the price, quality and functionality of the bag. I've probably had this just over a year now, purchasing it for my trip to Barcelona last year and although I don't use it as an everyday bag and really only when I go away overnight or on trips I think its held up really well and still looks almost as good as new and I can see it lasting for quite a few years yet.

        I tend to like the quality of New Look bags. THey are never very expensive but are well made and fit for the purpose they were made. If I remember rightly I paid in the £20 region for this bag which is great considering you would probably pay three times that amount for a named bag bag with wheels etc.

        The rose print is lovely. The background colour of the bag is black although as it is mostly covered with the roses there is not too much black to the bag if you know what I mean. The roses are a beautiful red colour and are fairly large and they also feature the leaves and greenery around them so look really pretty. I love the contrast of the red against the black and as this bag is accentuated with black as well I think that makes it look even better. The handles on this bag are black and made of leather so if you carry it in this way you can get a good grin and they have lasted well and not ripped or broken in any way.

        What I like about this bag is that it is made out of canvas and so when you are trying to cram as much as you can into it you can sort of stretch the bag and get more into it that you would a small wheelie suitcase that is quite rigid and sturdy and does not move.

        I tend to haul around so much stuff and it usually makes these type of bags really heavy but having the wheels on them makes it really easy to move around and much better than trying to carry with just the handles at the top. The wheels move well and do not stick and I am pleased at just how well this bag functions as something you can use when you travel. The capacity is good, I can take this bag for an overnight somewhere but I have also used it to go away for a few days as well and it really does fit everything I need it to.

        Inside the bag there are a number of different sections which is good as you can use some to put in travel documents or do like I like to do and separate my underwear from my other clothes etc. There is also a zip at the front of the bag and although this pocket is not very deep its quite handy to stick a magazine or a book in here when you are travelling to have quick access to it and not have to rummage in your bag all the time.

        All in all this is a great looking bag which is very handy and convenient.

        A great bag for a night away - professional and pretty combined!

        I tend to be travelling a lot more for work these days than I ever used to and as such I tend to be staying in UK hotels overnight quite a lot. A one night stay for me requires a change of work clothes, pyjamas and the usual accessories but it does not require a suitcase of any kind (which I will invariably only half fill and then drag around meetings all day). I found this bag in a sale in New Look around Christmas time, reduced from £40 to £15 and thought 'what a bargain'!

        Although I believe this rose print pattern is no longer available they do still make the same kind of bag, just with different print features so do look out for them - to be honest this bag is sturdy and pretty good value even not reduced because it also has the functionality of a pull along bag with wheels and the flexibility is brilliant.

        The bag is made from a canvas material which is sturdy and robust (but unfortunately not waterproof or wipe clean) and it has leather handles which are stitched on to the bag and very strong. It has wheels at one end which allow you to pull it along with the handle at the other and these are very smooth and easy to use, it drags along pavements etc with ease and the handle slides into the base well.

        Inside the bag there are four internal pockets which I find very useful as a way of seperating toiletries and small items, I usually put my phone/charger in one and anything I know I will need quick access to. The base is properly lined and the main compartment seals with a study zip. On the outside there is also a zip pocket which runs the length of the bag and is handy for putting documents or tickets in and keeping them fairly flat.

        I can easily fit what I need to in this bag without it feeling bulky and because it is quite pretty and inoffensive I also dont mind so much lumping it around for work if needs be. I find it more then adequate for an overnight stay and actually could probably fit enough in it for a weekend away.

        I find this a lovely addition to my luggage and it addresses a particular need, for the price I paid it was great value for money and I would certainly look to replace it with something very similar in the future.

        A fantastic trolley bag from New Look.

        A couple of years ago I didn't live with my husband and spent my time travelling between his family home and mine. This meant that I was looking for something that would allow me to cart all my items from place to place safely and securely. I have two trolley/weekend bags already and this one was originally from New Look. I received this as a gift from my husband that I picked myself and it cost around £40.00. I have had my bag around two years if I remember correctly, maybe slightly less. This price seemed reasonable for a weekend bag and I was really pleased at the time with this and have used it on and off for occasions since.

        This bag stood out to me because of its large print. This is a very bold pattern and this pattern has worn well over the past couple of years. This bag has been designed to look like a handbag really. The two handles on the top make it look like an oversized handbag but there is a telescopic handle that you can pull out and there are wheels on this bag meaning you can pull it along by the handle and not have to worry about the amount of items you've crammed in making it too heavy.

        This bag is large anyway but is deceptively so when you open it. There are pockets within the bag which I tend to wrote phone wires and the things that I am going to need quite quickly when I arrive at my destination. I also put my toothbrush and toothbrush case in one of these pockets too so I can brush my teeth even if I am travelling for long period of time. The main part of the bag is a decent size and I am able to put at least 3 full outfits in here along with some flat shoes or flip flops too. The pockets on the outside of the bags are great for storing tissues, my mobile phone and anything else that I may need to reach easily such as a passport or travel documents without having to open up my bag or carry an additional handbag.

        Obviously the wheels on this bag add a fantastic feature to a weekend bag. I can wheel my bag around when I am being lazy and the bag itself is nice and lightweight so it does not add much extra to the overall weight when I do have to carry my bag.

        I must say that I have been very pleased with this bag. As it was a gift I have not been too worried about its value for money but as it has lasted around two years of my using and abusing and accompanied me on no less than 30 occasions I would say that it has fared incredibly well. There is some light wear on the bottom of the bag and the wheels are looking a little bit tatty now but one hasn't fallen off (yet) and it is still going strong.

        Disadvantages

        A good traveling or overnight bag from New Look

        I bought this rose print ladies holdall to use as hand luggage on a long haul flight, I recall paying £25 for it as the quality impressed me immediately when I saw it in New Look while buying other holiday essentials.

        It's made of a strong linen canvas material that has piping all around it for extra protection against bumps and scrapes. There are two wheels and a short retractable handle that you can't see in the photo, the handle wouldn't be effective for taller people as it's only just long enough for me.

        There's a large pocket inside the case and a narrower zipped one built into the exterior that is of the design to be perfect for passport and other travel paperwork storage. The zipper around the bag opens widely so that you can pack clothing and other bulkier items inside without a struggle, the bag will hold much more than you think too as it has a very spacious interior. I have it packed now for my hospital bag when I go and have the baby and have fitted all my essentials inside.

        The wheels are fitted to the bag tightly and spin freely when I'm pulling the bag, the large capacity makes it heavy to carry using the handles but my husband will have to manage when I go into hospital. The handles are strong and made of a false leather material, as is the small luggage tag attached to the bag. The lining of the bag is also good quality and hasn't ripped during use even though I am not always very careful when packing.

        A useful weekend bag

        New Look Rose Trolley Bag

        This eye catching pink rose holdall trolley bag from New Look was a purchase I made for our weekends away. 'Not another bag!' I could hear hubby say. Love my travelling bags though and better still, love a bargain!

        **Floral print... Hmmmm!*

        I'm not a massive fan of floral prints as they don't seem to match my choice of clothes usually but this bag was on sale for £20 down from £39, so won me over. Love a bargain! It's definitely one of the nicer floral prints I've seen and is easy to spot which is always handy. It's a bold pink rose print with green leaves set against a dark brown/black background. I do find when I use it I have to wear plain coloured clothing with it though because it can really clash against some clothes. It's one of those bags whereby you have to think about what you're wearing when you know you are taking it out with you.

        My daughter tells me this is a stylish and fashionable bag and yes, a par usual with my 17 year old, it gets pinched on occasions. I guess therefore it would make for a good present for a fashion conscious young lady.

        **Design and Purpose**

        Always on the hunt for bargain, like mentioned, I bought this bag for weekends away. My sister also has one and she uses it for hand luggage when going abroad so it's within the right weight and size specs for that too.

        The bag itself is made of a canvas material and looks like a holdall with a handle on each side so it can be carried easily. With it being a trolley bag, the wheels on one end allow it to also be pulled along. As with most holdalls though that stand upright to pull along, your belongings inside tend to all fall over the place. If you're ok with that, and pack carefully bearing that in mind, it's a very handy feature for when your arms or shoulders are tired. I'm able to pack 2 changes of clothing, shoes, make up and toiletries bag, books, pyjamas, jacket, jewellery, hair dryer and a few extras. It's plenty big enough for all of that and I'm usually adding a few baby clothes as well if there isn't enough room for his clothes elsewhere.

        **Compartments**

        The main large zipped compartment of the bag has a zipped punch on the front which would be good for important documents. I've always kept my train tickets in it when have been using the train.

        There are quite a few different compartments inside the bag, the main body being for packing clothes, with 4 large zip pockets for toiletries and smaller pockets again that I like to keep my glasses and contacts in. The main compartment has a base with plastic lining for support.

        Other positives about this bag are the wheels glide really well, the handles are comfortable to hold and considering I've had the bag several months now, it's still looking as good as new. It's very lightweight and practical apart from it not being waterproof.


        **Overall**

        I like my bag and even the print has grown on me.

        My review

        I often go away for the weekend as it seems to be the only free time i have these days. When i go away its only to my mum and dads house or one of my friends if we have organised a night out. I have many suitcases and holdalls but i was on the look out for a new weekend bag something a bit more trendy looking.
        My gran recommended the new look rose print trolley bag to me as she had used hers a few times and it looked really nice with the bright pink roses against the black.

        I bought the new look rose print trolley bag from new looks online website. The bag cost £39.00.
        New look trolley bag is a descent size measuring around 20 inches long. Its made from strong nylon material. The bag is black in colour with bold pink roses with green leaves all over the bag. The print is very bright and vibrant but i love it.

        Rose print trolley bag has a zip along the middle to open the bag similar to a holdall, when open there is the main body of the bag and on the side there is 4 larger pockets, two on each side. The main compartment inside the bag has plastic lining on the bottom probably to strengthen the base of the bag, this is where i pack my clothes, shoes and laptop. The pockets inside the bag are handy to store make up bag, hair dryer and the small zipped pocket is where i stash my few bits of jewellery that i take or my ipod.

        The bag looks like a holdall and has a handle at either side of the bag so you can carry it however it is a trolley bag so has wheels on one end and a handle at the other so it can be rolled along like a case very handy if its heavy. I have only used the bag for rolling along the ground a few times because usually it comes out my car straight into the house i'm staying at. I can add when i did use it as the trolley the handle is sturdy as are the wheels and it rolled along smoothly without making to much noise.

        This is a great weekend bag , you are sure to everything you will need it the bag. If it gets grubby a quick wipe with a damp cloth will do the job.
        It seems a high price to pay just for a holdall or weekend bag but the funky design makes up for it so does the space and quality of the bag.

        I highly recommend the new look rose print trolley bag.

        Disadvantages

        Not brillian but done the trick

        I was shocked to see this on Dooyoo as I wouldn't really class it as a suitcase but more as a handbag. Anyway, I found this on new look's website when I was looking for a decent bag after my Paul's boutique one failed me (you can see review on my page). I actually wanted the Zebra bag but they had none in stock at the time so it had to be the rose bag.

        *aesthetics*
        I hated the look of this bag to start off with. I really did want the zebra print bag, but I had to stick with the rose one. If I'm being honest, I think it can look very granny-like and I hated the idea of walking about Luton airport with it. I took this on as carry-on luggage going to Turkey on an easy jet flight and it met the restrictions of the baggage allowance. This means that the baggage is infact within 56 x 45 x 25 and it left a lot of space when I was packing it. I had it fairly full, I packed in a few of my dresses that I didn't want in my suitcase as they would get crushed and I had a book sitting on top and a bottle of Coca-Cola. Although you must bear in mind airlines such as Ryanair have a much lesser baggage size allowance so I'm not sure if it would fit in one of their baskets you will have to check. The style has a pattern of roses on a black canvas, it is not overly textured but thank God it doesn't have that plasticy feel. It rolls out from two weels at one end, and the handles come out at one end, which I think can make the bag look a bit silly when walking around with it.


        *Use*
        It has a large zipped compartment with a zipped pouch at the front which is perfect for holding passports, papers and boarding cards. I found that if you pull the handle out and stand it up vertical the height is okay, however everything that Is in your bag will fall to one side which is absolutely pointless if you have folded everything up neatly. A good thing about this when I arrived at Glasgow coming back, I had to walk down several flights of stairs. It is good because you can simply wheel it, and when you come to an unexpected flight of stairs, it's a case of slipping the bars back in and picking up with the handles that are sitting waiting for you. This is a lot better than having to press silly little buttons, clip the handles back in, pick up with another tiny handle until you get to the flight of stairs. Then, you open it up again to roll it, and you come to another flight of stairs. So in one way it did save me a lot of hassle, and I felt a lot safer climbing down a flight of aircraft stairs with the bag on my shoulder as opposed to humping down a tiny suitcase.

        *price*
        I paid £20 for this case but it was on sale at that point, and it was reduced from about £30. I wouldn't pay £30 for one of these if I'm honest because even though it did work well for me, I don't the looks are up to scratch and you can find a £10 suitcase that does the trick. Although if you fly a lot with airlines such as easy jet or Ryanair(please check case restrictions, not sure about this airline), then this case can be a perfect little bag for taking on planes with you and it saves you the cost of paying £20 to check in your luggage!


        *Overall opinion*
        If I'm honest, I didn't think this did me much use. I used it on one holiday and then went back to using my old Dunlop case. I wish I never paid the price for it, and I'm going to sell it on eBay very soon (hint hint)

          Sturdy, reliable, gorgeous trolley bag

          I got this bag not long ago as i'm at uni and stay in temporary accomadation, however travel home over a hundred miles away every fornight, so needed a bag that was versatile enough to carry/pull, but large enough for me to fit in 3-4 outfits aswell as shoes and my laptop.

          I spent ages looking, and found that most trolley bags are hideously plain or downright ugly, and was on the verge of giving up. I'm a big fan of newlook and saw this while browsing there website, and couldn't believe it. This was excactly what i was looking for!

          Style:
          One word: Gorgeous. It's extremely cath kidston like, girly, and has a somewhat vintage look to it. It's a very dark brown but can easily be mistaken in my opinion for black, with red rose detailing, with small green leaves. Lots of detail and really pretty. I at first thought it was just a very large handbag! I soon discovered however that there's more to the eye and it does in fact have a pull out handle and tiny little cute wheels, enabling the owner to pull with ease. It pretty much glides along the floor without any effort atall but is nice and solid. The handles just the right height and it's honestly my favourite bag i own.

          Inside, there's alot of different zip up compartments, varying in sizes but to be honest they're all quite small. Ideal for walletts, phones, notebooks, all to have there own little compartment so you don't get confused! The main inner i use for my clothes and it can easily hold 4/5 outfits and a pair of shoes. It's really neat and compact and makes unpacking easy as i know which compartment each item is in.

          Price and Value:
          £35. Considering the amount i use this (every fortnight) i'm over the moon with this purchase. It's amazingly cute and i've had numerous people ask me if it was from Cath Kidston! It's spacious, easy to handle and all in all was worth every penny. Ofcourse, if you want a suitcase/bag for a holiday that'll be once a year, maybe it'd be better to get a slightly cheaper one as it's quite expensive so best to get lots of use out of!!

            Love the bag!

            I spend a lot of time at friends at weekends or stopping at a relatives, and end up lugging around my laptop with me as it's impossible for me to live without it! So for the obvious reasons I needed to buy a big enough bag to keep everything in, and that was easy enough to carry about.

            I bought the bag from New Look costing £39, which I didn't think was a bad price considering the size and how much use I would be getting out of it. It stood out from the usual boring bags with the design and didn't look like a horrible holdall that you wouldn't want to be seen with!

            The bold print of pink roses and green leaves covering the bag stand out from the dark background and are a real eye-catcher! Great if your after something different but not over the top, rather than just a plain black. At first I thought it was just a holdall with handles to carry it with, but it's actually a trolley design bag with wheels underneath and the handles if you'd rather carry it. The handles are sturdy,easy and comfortable to carry, and the wheels are pretty smooth and don't get jammed when turning corners!

            I've used the bag several times over the months and it's still going strong. The material being quite thin I was expecting it to break easily but it hasn't done and has served me well on my trips! The pattern hasn't faded and the bag is still looking great.

            The size of the bag should fit all of the regulations for airlines as hand luggage, but is still large enough to fit a decent amount of clothes in, or whatever you want to put in it. There are lots of little compartments and zips to put things in, rather than having it all together in the main section of the bag so you can keep things seperate and easy to find. There's also a zip pocket on the outside which is handy for your mobile phone, money etc.. so you don't have to open the whole bag and rummage around, and you don't have to bring another bag with you.

            The bag is really lightweight compared to all other holdalls/cases/bags. It makes a big difference even when you've got all your things in it! If your taking it as hand luggage it helps with the weight allowance too.

            I love this bag and would recommend it to anybody! Thanks for reading. :)

              Perfect for a lightweight as myself.....

              Product: New Look Rose Print Trolley Bag

              From: New Look

              Price: £39.00

              I often do overnight stays or go for weekends away with my boyfriend or the girls. Whether it's staying in the UK or going abroad i go on these kind of little trips at least several times a year so thought it'd be worth investing in a new luggage bag after my old one had started looking a little worn and kind of outdated.......retro print anyone?!.

              I wanted something compact, sturdy but whilst still being quite girly and pretty. I also didn't want to spend too much, maybe £60.00 maximum.

              With a budget for a bag in mind i started looking online at the usual haunts; Argos, Debenhams, House of Fraser etc but nothing had taken my fancy. I popped into New Look one afternoon whilst browsing around the shops on my lunch from work when I spotted the New Look Rose Print Trolley Bag which I of course purchased.

              The bag as a bold pink rose print, which details green leaves on a dark brown background. On first seeing the bag I thought it was actually a two handle holdall, but on closer inspection I noticed it also had wheels underneath the base of the bag and a pull up handle which allows you to pull the bag across the floor on it's wheels, great for a lightweight as myself who hates carrying anything too heavy, i'm such a girl.......

              Inside the bag contains lots of different compartments. I tend to pack my main clothes, shoes etc in the main body of the bag, then put any toilettries in the zip pocket of the bag and smaller items inside the small pockets, very handy and overall the bag is very cleverly designed.

              I've had the rose print trolley bag for approximately 5 months now and have used it quite a few times, it still looks as new, the colour hasn't faded, it's spacious, the shape as remained the same as when I bought it instore and everything is still intact ;). The bag is really sturdy but light enough for me to pull along too, which is a huge plus point for me and an important factor when buying a bag for my luggage.

              If you're flying abroad and taking the bag along with you as hand luggage then the measurements and weight of the bag are perfectly fine and complies with the majority of airlines strict instructions.

              Overall this is the perfect weekend bag for me, sturdy, pretty and does it's job really well, thumbs up.

                A lovely case from New Look

                I have to admit the reason I bought this rose print trolley bag from New Look was mainly because of how it looked in the shop. It was sitting on a plinth surrounded by loads of clothing and it immediately caught my eyand I had to have it. I reasoned that although I didn't really need it that it was bound to come in handy sometimes.
                I was right as I have used it a good few times now and it always causes a stir no matter where I take it with people adrmiring it and asking where I got it from.

                I got the bag for £20 on sale but it's original price was £39 which is still reasonable considering how expensive cases can be just for plain black one's.
                It is a trolley design bag with wheels and a handle that is cleverly disguised until you need it. The wheels are really smooth and turn the right way when taking a corner which is always a must for me.
                It also has really nice sturdy handles which turn it into a holdall and are comfortable enough to hold for lengthy periods of time.

                The bag is really lightweight which makes it great for packing in all my junk as the less it weighs to begin with the more I can add to it and still be able to heave it along.
                There are also lots of different zippered compartments which is a must for me as I like to be able to section my things such as toiletries and mobile phone chargers into different parts to be able to find them again with ease.
                It's not the roomiest bag and wouldn't do for a 2 week holiday but the main space is reasonable and enough for quite a few clothes to last a long weekend.

                The pattern is absolutely gorgeous and a real eye catcher. The roses really do cover the whole bad and it makes for a different interesting pattern from the usual bag designs out there.
                The material is quite thin and I was initially worried it would start to come apart after one use but it is surprisingly sturdy which is great as in my experience New Look don't tend to make things that last well.
                I have used it loads and it is still in good condition and let's be honest no one is going to be buying this to take trekking round South America and for the odd weekend away this should last you quite a long time.

                  Cute fashionable bag for breaks away

                  I booked a weekend away in London a few months ago, and as we were only going for 2 nights, I didn't want to pack a massive suitcase to take just 2 nights worth of clothes with me! I have been looking for a bag for sooo long for short breaks away! I wanted one which was cute and girly, not too much like a boring old suitcase. When I came across this cute trendy bag in new look, it was just what I was looking for.

                  I love the design of this bag, it is really cute and definitely stands out. It is black with a rose flower design all over it.

                  When I first saw this bag I thought it was just one that you carry on your shoulder, when I saw it actually has wheels and you can pull it like a suitcase, I wasn't keen on it, as I just wanted one that I could carry over my shoulder. But this turned out to be great when we got to London and my bag became so heavy on my shoulder carrying it around to the hotel, so the wheels were great to take the weight off me for a while.

                  You can actually get a lot in this bag, there is more than enough room for what you need to take away with you on a weekend away, and it also has pockets inside to separate things, so your not digging round the bottom of your bags looking for things like your money/make up etc.

                  I bought this bag for £40, but new look had 10% off all bags that day so I only paid £36, which I think was a bargain for this bag as it feels such good quality, it isn't cheaply made, I can see it lasting a good few years at least.

                  This bag is also about the right size to take on a plane as hand luggage, so ill definitely be using this bag next year on my holiday, I have been looking for a nice bag for the plane for ages! For £36, I will definitely get my moneys worth out of this bag.

                  I highly recommend this bag for any girl looking for something girly and fashionable to take on short breaks away, it is perfect and I am glad I bought it.

                    A really great travel/heavy shopping solution

                    Wooo Yay, Dooyoo accepted my first ever product suggestion! I was really eager to write about this product, New Looks Rose Print Trolley Bag, as I have just heavily road-tested it on my week long travel around Europe.

                    Firstly, what made me buy this was I needed a bag that complied with both Ryanair and Easyjet's strict hand baggage allowance (in terms of measurements and weight), as I would be relying solely on hand baggage for the week. Secondly, what immediately caught my eye was the fact this bag also has a pop out handle and wheels, so it can be used as a normal handbag or suitcase depending on your preference. Plus I loved the outer design with the roses, perfect!

                    I bought this on New Looks website, in the colour "chalk", for £39 and although I had some issues with New Looks website (it ended up ordering the bag 6 times by mistake because of server problems), I was really pleased with it, when all of that was sorted out and it finally arrived.

                    What I really like about this product, is it fits the market for stylish hand baggage that also happens to be a suitcase, when you require it to be. After the website debacles, I naturally did have a good browse on other websites and in shops in my town centre, but nothing seemed to fit the bill. The other cases I came across, were either too big, too manly looking (sorry guys) or very expensive. I know the case doesn't always matter when going away, infact it's probably only a minute detail, however as it was going to be acting as my general bag throughout all these cities I wanted it to look the part, which is why I bought this item.

                    I was initially very impressed at how light it was, as usually proper cases tend to be a bit heavy which is okay considering you wheel them about, but as I would be carrying this and also had weight restrictions, the fact that this was incredibly light meant a huge weight off my shoulder (excuse the pun!).

                    What is also handy, is the fact the bag contains several compartments, both on the outside and inside the bag. There is a large zip compartment which I used to store important documents, and then a mobile phone compartment and another small compartment which is useful as it means you don't end up scouring the bottom of your bag for that lost earring.

                    Another impressive aspect considering it was one of the cheapest items I came across, is that incorporated the bag/case element, was how well made I thought it was. On my travels, this bag has been wheeled across many airport terminals, hauled into luggage racks, thrown (nicely) onto buses and been in a fair few taxis, as well as surviving the London underground. There isn't a sign of wear and tear from all of this. However as the colour I bought it in, "chalk", is of course a whitey colour, it did mean it was subjected to alot of dirt from the London Underground in particular. I haven't attempted cleaning this off yet as its gone a bit black on one side, however this bag colour is no longer available on New Looks site, so with the black version of this bag I wouldn't have thought dirt would show up quite as easily. It is also worth noting the bag is more canvas material than plastic waterproof as it appears in the picture, so be weary if you take it out in the rain!

                    Whilst on my travels, I did get complimented on this bag by my friends which is a credit to New Look. I think this bag would easily suit not just travellers, but also if you are shopping and it all gets too heavy to carry, as it easily transforms into something with wheels which instantly takes any weight off. Whilst mentioning the wheels, I was slightly disappointed how easy they become scratched and "used looking", and they also are a bit unsteady when you are walking fast or trying to cross a road, which can be a little annoying. Having said that, design wise you really can't fault how it has been thought up and assembled. I wonder how long it will be before other high street retailers cotton on to the idea of a bag, that is a case. Genius!
