I couldn't travel anywhere with just carry on bags. Not even a 3 day trip to Calgary. I have too many hair appliances and shoes. They seem to let you travel here now with contact lense solution (over the small liquid limit) in carry-on. I'm not sure if this has caught on in all airports or outside of Canuckistan.

I was the first white man to ascend K2 while pulling a wheelie bag.
Snow tires, of course.

Kinda similar to my six weeks in Europe. I had a bigger daypack and one rolling Tumi which I recently retired due to it having a design flaw (pull handle sticks out too much when inside the bag - bad for overhead stowage) that a flight attendant actually said snarky things about. Fucker. Of course this was an excuse to buy new luggage!!!1!!1!1!

Huh? You can't do a three day weekend with a 22" wheeled luggage?

Yah, but I have a ceramic flat iron, a curling iron, a special blow dryer and my favourite brush... along with running shoes, walking heels and work heels.... and I'm usually putting files and binders in my suitcase anyway because I don't want to have the weight in my carry-on laptop bag.

I prefer backpacks and only like the wheelies on the huge bags I always check. If you were to have a wheelie bag and get trapped in a monsoon, there are these little strap things called 'handles' that allow the user to manipulate where the bag is located on the vertical axis. By lifting the bag away from the surface of the water, you can keep it from getting wet until you are on dry ground. While I generally agree with Soda on his choice of bags, it's unclear to me why he spends so much of his holidays standing in sewage.

Ha-Ha!! I don't know about other big Asian-fans, but I've had this 2 or 3 times - the monsoon rains pour down, the drains block, and suddenly the streets are literally knee deep in shit. I remember being in Dhaka when it was thigh-deep - and it was really hard to walk anyway for fear of disappearing down some huge hole invisible beneath the shit-coloured water. I've also had it in Bangkok and Saigon.

Anyone with a wheelie bag must really suffer in the monsoon rains.

In Dhaka I was on a year long trip, so didn't get much choice. In Saigon and Bangkok I think it was because the place I'd been spending most of my time wasn't having the monsoon at that time of year...given ii hits different areas at different times, it can be hard to avoid sometimes. In Singapore or Sri Lanka the odds of striking heavy rain are about 1:1.

I am a backpack girl but honestly... Bhutan is not third world and someone will generally be carrying your luggage for you. You pays the $200/day, you gets good portage!! Thailand is fine with wheelie luggage too except if you are using p/t and hoofing your gear over sandy beaches blahblahblah.

It's all preference though I have to say that I find it hard to imagine using wheelie luggage in many parts of Africa I've been to.

Word of warning about Bhutan and monsoons and poo in the streets... it happens, apparently and I had a beer with a NZ expat who told a great tale of Thimpu storm drains disgorging poo all over her in her first week, causing her accute and premature homesickness.

Should this happen to you, use that "handle" thing someone mentioned to lift the bag out of the pooey water, eh? Better yet, get driver/guide to do that while you carry on in a very loud voice about how "rustic" and FABulous it all is or about how you don't know how "these people" can accept living "like this"!

Exactly what I meant in my first post. If you don't have a backpack, avalon, and if it's really not your preference for the reasons you've said (back, etc), you'll survive perfectly with a wheelie, or any other type of luggage for that matter.

I have to be honest. I've done some truly deep soul searching on this issue. I've stayed up countless nights contemplating my options and what's genuinely right for me. Me. My soul. My heart. I've come to the conclusion that I need a lightweight rollie backpack or duffle. There. I said it. It's out there and I can't take it back.

I hope you realise this is a choice for life. Get this wrong, and your life will pretty much go downhill from here on in.

I know people who have lost everything - husband, kids, job - all by just thinking that just once, just for a short trip, they'd play with a duffle. Just for a few minutes.

Next thing you know they're selling the things to kids.

Hurrah for enlightenment! Revelation! Epiphany!

Get a wheeled duffel. My problem with the wheeled backpack is that it's just too...oxymoronic. Something only an Apprentice-losing-project-team-leader Trustafarian would invent. You get a backpack, you stand up for it. Whereas putting wheels on duffel bags is a stroke of genius, like backlit keyboards and Pocky sticks.

I don't have a non-wheel duffel, so I'll speak of the rolling variety.

I use my wheeled duffel just like you use your wheeled normal luggage – you wheel it most of the time, lifting it when necessary. What I like about it is the duffelness of it – the material and shape are flexible, so you're not rectangularly restricted. You can just squeeze stuff in without needing to rearrange all your other stuff. So it basically affords you the same space efficiency as a backpack (mine has got compartments for boots and other oddly-shaped stuff like a gaggle of cords) – but with more ease of use (not being vertical makes it easy for you to reach stuff) and without the attendant embarrassment when you put wheels in it.

Mind you, I don't have a normal duffel, and I don't think I'd like one. If I had to use non-wheeled luggage, like if I travel to a wheel-hostile terrain, I would use my trusty backpack.

I use a wheeled duffel for longer trips. It's made of soft casing so it's light, easy to manouver over all sorts of terrain and easy to carry, if necessary.

I think wheelie baggers are so desperate to make an anti-backpacker stand, i.e. to reject the clichéd traveller snobbery, that they're willing to make life harder for themselves.

The reason people like wheelie bags is because when need be they always seem to find someone to lug it for them, put it in the trunk of the taxi, carry it around the train, throw it on the boat, carry it forever up the cobble stones to the hotel.......

I swear that everytime i would end up with a female travel partner who had a wheelie, it would end up as my responsibility to move that anchor when it became difficult.

Backpacks are where its at.

I've found these things called "taxis" and some times things like really big taxis, called "buses" are quite good in those situations.

For dealing with stairs, I use things called "elevators".
