If you’re in the market for a versatile bag, you can’t find anything better than the Deuter Helion 80, a rolling suitcase/backpack hybrid. Get the benefits of both straps and wheels!
We have been using ours since its purchase in December 2017 and we absolutely love it! They are mainly used as a rolling suitcase but there have been numerous times when the backpack feature has been a godsend.
For example, in Asia we often travel by ferry / boat and the very narrow gangways (or strip of timber which require tightrope walking skills to cross) mandate the use of the backpack to ensure you and your bag don’t end up ‘in’ the ocean.
The backpack feature has also been great when the road / walkway surface is not suitable for wheeling the bag i.e. soft sand, pebbled, rough, busy with pedestrians etc.
