1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this bag, its rubbish!!, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Karabar Large Super Lightweight Wheeled Holdalls - 3 Years Warranty! (Apparel)
I bought this bag to take on holiday to Croatia this summer, specifially to hold our 2 man tent, camping mats and sleeping bags. As soon as i opened the bag i realised that it wasnt very sturdy at all and that the 3 wheels were way to small for the size of the bag its self.

Before going on holiday i used the bag for a weekend away, and to save me carrying many bags on and of the tubes and trains, i put it all into one. It was obvious on this first journey how unstable the bag is on these 3 tiny wheels, and unless the contents weight is distributed evenly, the bag wobbled from side to side when pulling it behind you.

The day before we left for Croatia, i prepared to pack the bag. This is when i relised that there was a rip in the bottom of the bag (the end that takes the brunt of all the weight), obvously it had caught on something on my journey. On realising this, i was surpried that there was no extra strengthening to this end of the bag. Surely a bag that can hold so much stuff should be strengthened accordingly? Perhaps a more solid base such as a thick piece of plastic would prevent this happening as the bag fabric itself is really thin.

As it was the day before my holiday, i had no other choise than to fix it myself with a few layers of a thick canvas type material stitched into the end of the bag to give us some piece of mind that it would not split entirely while we were away. It also became clear that the middle wheel was not quite touching the ground and there for utterlyuseless.

When we got back from the holiday, i promtly threw the bag in the bin where rubbish belongs!

Do not buy this bag!!

Why didn't you use the 3 year warranty and return it?
