Hi All,

Planning a 3 week Central European excursion for my wife and I. We will be traveling by train mostly. I am thinking about 1st Class just because of luggage and this being my wife's first overseas trip. I am looking at getting her the Caribee Skymaster 70L wheeled backpack for the trip. Does anyone have any info on this bag or personal knowledge? I have read alot of info from the company, but....

Thanks for any info or help.

Does anybody have experience with Caribee gear?

I don't have experience, but that appears to be a huge piece of luggage, and very heavy. 5+ kg just for the luggage, before filling it with anything!
Let your wife choose what she wants: a backpack or a trolley bag, and go for something which is just that, and does it well, rather than for a frankenstein-hybrid like this, which gives you the worst of both worlds.
