I bought this for a weekend away and it was fine to carry or wheel along, but using it as a rucksack will do damage to your back! Random bits stick out, meaning that you're better off just buying either a large rucksack or a cheapish wheeled suitcase. The zip doesn't go all the way round, which is mildly annoying if you're using it like a suitcase. Also the extending handle is pretty weak, so wheeling it along anything other than a smooth marble floor is a struggle. It's now used for storage on top of my wardrobe and will probably go into landfill on my next homewares cull. Buy it if you're only planning to use it once.
