What baggage do you recommend?

I have the Karrimor Airport 80 ( http://www.aktive8.com/p/KARRIMOR/Wheeled-Luggage/AIRPORT-/K06R68_SS06.html?utm_source=froogle&utm_medium=price%2Bcomparison ) but my boyfriend wants something a bit bigger.

Would anyone recommend this bag? http://www.aktive8.com/p/Berghaus/Wheeled-Luggage/Jalan-70-15-Rucksack/B62604_SS06.html

thanks

Where ever you're going take the smallest lightest bag you can-I think they're both too large and heavy-4 kgs for a bag alone is too much.

No one needs 80 litres of capacity 40 is lots for most people 60 tops.

I agree, I think both are too large. I took 55L and my boyfriend took 65L - I wouldn't have wanted to carry more than that, and his wasn't completely full until towards the end of our trip. We both had ample space -I could have packed even lighter and will do next time. Pack light - you will be glad of it in the end.
