Lightweight Upright Roller
At 45.7 x 33 x 25.4cm, Case Logic’s Lightweight Upright Roller is the size of a compact carry-on suitcase, and it looks like one too. It weighs 3.15kg.
One of our favourite features is the rigid EVA shell, which is relatively light but offers an impressive degree of protection for the bag’s contents.
The Upright Roller’s laptop compartment, just in front of the main compartment, offers the least protection of the bags tested. Although the sides of the compartment are semi-rigid, the laptop pouch inside extends only about 2/3 the length of the compartment and uses a thin layer of padding. Because of the Roller’s outer shell, we didn’t worry too much about the laptop’s safety, especially as the laptop pouch is big enough to accommodate a 15in MacBook Pro inside another sleeve.
The zips for the Upright Roller’s three largest compartments are lockable. The zips felt exceptionally sturdy during testing, and we liked the thick, padded handle on the top of the bag.
