Hi,[br][br]Am going on Dicover Europe 3 Sept 09 to 28 Sept 09.[br][br]Does anyone recomend any brands of luggage ie blackwolf,kathmandu etc?Am thinking of getting one of those backpacks with wheels.[br][br]Any other brands and websites you can suggest would be fantastic.Also any tips on packing as this will be my first trip to Europe.[br][br]Cheers[br]:p[br]Stu

Hi Uncle Stu :)[br][br]Im also going on a trip to Europe mid this year. I have purchased a Kathmandu backpack which has a sturdy back but with no wheels as im afraid off crossing the 20kg weight limit when getting back into NZ. [br][br]The aussie website is: http://www.kathmandu.com.au/[br][br]Hope this helps! [br]

Hey Stu,[br][br]I’m doing a camping tour in May 09, and after looking at a few options with bags I’ve decided to go with the Osprey Meridian series (available from Bivouac). This series of bags has both wheels and good pack straps so that it can be worn on your back pretty comfortably or wheeled along. They’re light weight too. I’m going with the 75L bag, which includes a 20L removable backpack on the front. [br][br]I’ve looked at the Kathmandu equivalent, and although they’re a lot cheaper they don’t seem to be as tough. It really depends what your after… [br][br]A lot of people have told me that having wheels is a good idea, because it means you can give your back a rest…[br][br]Hope that helps ;D[br][br]Lou[br][br]Mega European [br](May 2009)

UNCLESTU are you from Oz? I only ask coz when i went to the pacsafe site and found what i wanted i could then get directed to an australian website to buy it which meant paying in $AUS and also saving on delivery fees. I found the
www.gogogear.com.au
the best value out of all the listed sites. Good luck in the search! :)[br][br]Nicole[br]Grand European July 2009[br]+ Britain & Ireland September 2009[br]+ Greek Islands
