Luggage wheels encompasses a wide variety of wheeled luggage – kids wheeled luggage, wheeled backpacks, wheeled duffel bags and carry on suitcases and larger wheeled suitcases that can hold up to 50 pounds or more. The prices vary a lot depending on size, brand name, type of wheel luggage and where you buy the particular item.
Wheeled Luggage Bags:
Wheeled luggage bags, such as wheeled backpacks and wheeled duffel bags, are great for a holiday or vacation. These can often be bought quite inexpensively either online or at a supermarket, although it should be noted that online retailers often have a better selection and better prices as well.
If you are looking for an affordable wheeled duffel bag, then you may find the 32″ Bottom Expandable Wheeled Duffel Bag selling at Wal-Mart for only $26 to be a good buy. Another good buy is the Everest 330WH Digital Camouflage 30″ Rolling Duffel Bag selling at Amazon.com for $27. This particular wheeled duffel bag also comes with a limited lifetime warranty. For those who want a top of the line wheeled bag, a few options are the Cutter & Buck Performance Wheeled Duffel Bag, the Samsonite Black 32″ Wheeled Duffel Bag and the Navy RD Collections Rolling 36″ Duffel Bag. You should note, however, that these duffel bags cost well over $1,000; in fact, the Navy RD Collections Rolling Duffel Bag costs over $3,000.
You can also purchase a personalized wheeled duffel bag from a number of online sites. Wal-Mart sells them in blue, pink or khaki for around $40. If you want something higher end, then the North End Wheeled Duffel Bag selling at $89 on online retail site Usimprints.com, can also be personalized as desired.
Wheeled backpacks are also available from a number of retail sites. A wheeled backpack usually costs less than a wheeled duffel bag and you can find wheeled backpacks in all styles and colors. If you are looking for something casual or sporty, then a couple good options are the Nike Accessories Magenta Rolling Laptop Backpack and the Roxy Loving Sight Black Combo Wheeled Backpack. Both wheeled backpacks can be found at eBags.com and they cost $68 and $64 respectively.
Kids Luggage on Wheels:
If you have more than one child and want to take a family holiday or vacation, then having wheeled kids luggage is almost a necessity. Try to get each child their own small-wheeled backpack, duffel bag or carry on suitcase; if they are old enough they can even help to pack these themselves with toys, books, snacks and other items they would need for a long flight. Having your child then be responsible to pull their own small carry on bag allows you as the parent to take care of the other carry on bags or smaller children.
Many wheeled backpacks and suitcases for children feature well-known cartoon characters or superheroes. Whether your child is into Spiderman, Mickey Mouse, Nemo or the Disney Princesses, you are sure to find wheeled carry on luggage featuring the character or characters your child loves. It is important to be aware, however, that a child’s tastes will change, and often quite rapidly too. As children get older, they may not want to be seen wheeling a suitcase featuring a more ‘childish’ cartoon character. Keep this in mind when shopping for wheeled carry on luggage for children. You may want to opt for something good looking yet more generic in style.
If you want something colorful then one of J World’s Kid’s Sparkling Wheel Rolling Backpacks with Lunch Bag may be a good choice. You can find these for sale at www.luggage.com or www.shoebuy.com, although it should be noted that www.luggage.com sells them at a better price.
