Well designed but possibly not suitable for plane travel,
This review is from: Berghaus Optimus 40L Wheeled Travel Bag (Sports)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The bag is sturdy and feels well built. The handle feels solid. There are plenty of zips and pockets. The internal seems to be well thought out with dividers to help manage the contents. It is a good colour. They have nice design touches like a little area to put a 'belongs to' label.
The front feels very soft and I would not want to put it in the hold of a plane at any point. I would think it may even tear. There is no protection to what is inside the bag so you can't put anything fragile in it. If it is not full and something heavy got thrown on the top of it it may even burst open. There are straps to carry it like a rucksack. The problem is the wheels will then rub against your lower back so if they are dirty at all then you'll soon have marks on your lower back. This is not, IMO, good design. It also does not feel overly well balanced and seems to lean backwards when stood up.
Overall, they are visually nice bags but I would only use them for travel by car and not by plane. I would be very conscious it may get damaged if it went into a plane hold.

Does yours not have a flap that covers the wheels?
mine has, Unpop the flap and it falls down to protect your back from dirty wheels.
