Launched in 1976 and with 13 editions worldwide, Business Traveller Magazine is the go-to magazine for business travellers around the world. It’s no surprise that its Global Editor-in-Chief, Tom Otley, is among the most veteran of frequent flyers and doesn’t mince his words when it comes to product reviews. Having already reviewed the RE_01 Red Eye Garment Bag, HD_01 Holdall Duffel Bag, and RW_01 Road Warrior 2-Wheel Rolling Luggage, Otley is just as pleased in his fourth review.
Otley took the opportunity to test his new RW_02 Road Warrior suitcase on the delivery flight of Finnair’s new A350 WXB Airbus to Helsinki. Fitting very comfortably in the new and improved overhead storage compartments, Otley praised the bag’s manoeuvrability and strong build. He also noted that “The wheels work well with the rear wheels being about 50% larger than the front set meaning when the ground is rougher (pavements etc) you can drag it on the rear wheels very easily.”
Sharing a number of similar features to that of its sister bag, the RW_01 Road Warrior 2-Wheel Rolling Luggage, Otley strongly distinguishes between the two. The 2-Wheel suitcase is larger and comes with the LAT_56 patented Suit Packing System, which allows a suit to be rolled crease-free. The 8-Wheel case, on the other hand, is slightly smaller and does not include the suite rolling technology. For these reasons, Otley concludes: “I’d recommend buying both this one and the larger one since they suit different types of trips.”
