The Berghaus Optimus 40 is, however, quite a find. The rectangular suitcase shape of it (in contrast to some other trolley models that are rounded at the top) means that you can really fit a lot in. The inner pockets ensure you can find everything easily and the mesh section in the lid is great for underwear etc. There are also straps inside to hold your clothes in place (though I would have preferred these to be of the elastic kind). The zips are chunky and robust, making me think (or hope) they’ll last a while. They’ve also got the usual interlocking holes for adding your own padlock. The outer zip pocket on the front is not one of those pockets that you can’t actually fit anything into, but rather expands due to the “tailoring” of the seams. Providing you’re not going to be doing too much walking around with it (I tend to use it as a trolley in the airport but as a rucksack when I’m walking around the city), it’s actually quite comfortable to use as a rucksack, though the straps could perhaps do with a bit more padding (btw, I’m a 5’ 3” female).
There are some negatives though, which is why I’ve only given it 4 stars. The wheels are of a plasticky material (like the kind on cheap rollerblades) and are quite loud when you’re rolling it around as a trolley. I’ve also found the telescopic handle to be a bit sticky (I’ve not tried oiling it yet). The transition between trolley to rucksack and vice versa is not so smooth as it was with my Antler trolley rucksack, as the straps on the Berghaus model have to be clipped on. Also, it’s not really possible to pull the trolley along with the rucksack straps still attached as they get caught in the wheels and/or act as a sweeping brush collecting all the dust on the airport floor.
A small aesthetic critique is the fact that the logo is printed not embroidered, giving quite a cheap impression that you don’t normally expect from a brand like Berghaus.
All in all, it’s a great bag that suits my needs. But I’m starting to think that the sales assistants were right – a REALLY comfortable trolley rucksack probably doesn’t exist.
One concern voiced in the reviews was the noise of the wheels..... Can't say I've really noticed. It's not silent, it won't be any use if you're in MI6 or want to stalk someone but it seems no noisier than any other wheeled bag I have used or currently use.
Great, would recommend without hesitation. Would buy again.
1 - The handle is on twin (low profile) oval tubes, and locks securely open or closed. The interior tubes locate solidly into the base that the wheels attach to. Although the case itself is 'soft' (not a 'shell'), this frame construction makes it feel solid in use.
2 - It stands up by itself, full or empty.
3 - The interior dividers flip out of the way when not needed. The upper one is big enough to hold a pair of men's shoes; the lower one is smaller, but almost forms a closed container when the lid is closed.
4 - Inside the lid is a zipped net pocket, over the whole area of the lid. There is a small zipped pocket on one side (interior).
5 - There is a small zipped pocket on the rear, and a large pocket to contain the back straps. The back straps are quickly deployed, and useful when climbing stairs, or traversing rough ground. The straps unclick easily if not needed, so you then have a newspaper pocket.
6 - The front pocket will hold a waterproof + folding umbrella, or a pullover, plus odds and ends for the journey.
