Lipault 2-Wheeled Satchel

Special to The Miami Herald

Here’s a classy wheeled bag that not only eases the schlep factor, but does so without adding burdensome weight or extra bulk that can make lifting or stashing a challenge. The Lipault 2-Wheeled Satchel is a soft-sided nylon twill bag with an integrated mono-tube retractable handle for rolling, as well as double padded carry handles for lifting (or carrying the old fashioned way). The spacious zippered main compartment opens wild-mouth style for easy access. The sewn-in external panel can slip over the handle of another wheeled bag (or luggage wheels handle) for hauling multiple pieces. The satchel is available in a 20-inch carry-on size weighing just 4.3 pounds, or a 5.1-pound, 24-inch bag that would likely need to be checked through (although it might pass as carry-on if not stuffed to the brim. Color choices are delicious, from gumdrop shades of purple, fuchsia, or aqua to a quieter black or chocolate.

Lipault 2-Wheeled 20-inch Satchel is $179; 24-inch $199. Info: www.lipault-us.com.
