My first trip was down to Melbourne for 3 days. Definitely the perfect opportunity to test out the new bag. It was a typical trip, with hotels and hospitals and all manner of obstacles that I would typically encounter.
- The 4-wheeler is definitely all about manouverability. Not only can you send the bag in front of you down the aisle but just getting around in tight spaces, like in cafes or hospitals. It was far easier to move around when you could see the bag in front of you rather than pulling it behind you. I also found myself quite proficient at the drag and swing - you start dragging the bag behind you to get some momentum then bring it out to the front to push along.
- The Cyberlite has a great small pocket at the front of the bag that was perfect for storing my plastic baggie for International flights.
- It is Cyberlite - this bag is super light and really easy to carry with the moulded top handle.
- Off road handling - It was very tough to push it along but the beauty of the 4-wheeler was that it could also act as a 2-wheeler and bumble along. I was initially a little cautious due to the smaller more delicate wheels but it handled very well.
- Toppling over - this was an issue on my first leg down to Melbourne. Easy fix was to make sure all the heavy notes and makeup bag etc were all at the bottom and my running shoes, clothes etc were on top.
Am I a 4-wheeler girl? I think I am. I am almost in line for a new big suitcase and I will really be considering the bigger bags with 4-wheels. I think the bigger the bag, the easier the handling will be as I often get a very sore hand moving around the 2-wheeler stocked full of all my shopping.
*Antler Australia sent me this bag to review, I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are and always will be my own.
