The unique G-Ro’s declare to fame have been its huge wheels designed to carry over curbs and supply a easy, regular trip. I attempted the unique bag just lately and located it superior to four-wheeled carry-ons I’ve had however a bit of oddly formed. With some observe, nevertheless, you be taught the place to place varied sundries to make sure correct load steadiness.
The new bags riff on the unique’s fashion and two fashions, the Verify-In and the Workplace, embrace a pair of huge wheels and a really sturdy and lengthy deal with. The opposite two, the Backpack XV and Backpack Gentle, take styling and materials cues from the unique and supply some fascinating features of their very own.
