Background and Identification ¶
Patagonia Wheeled Luggage accommodates a week's worth of clothes in one compartment, and boots or dirty gear in another (the two are separated by a floating baffle). It sports a zippered end compartment and an interior mesh toiletry pocket, and contains a light-colored lining and structurally impact-resistant skidplate. The tough, molded bottom pan can stand up to brutal treatment, while smooth-rolling 80-mm wheels, steered by a 2-position retractable handle, get you where you're going with ease. The freewheeler rolls with haul handles at both ends, an easily-replaceable retractable pull handle, external compression straps to cinch the load and/or attach bulky items, and batten supports on the sides that keep the bag standing upright (but collapse for easy storage). It is made of a tough 1,200-denier 100% recycled polyester with a polyurethane coating and a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and includes a molded foam and 1,200-denier 100% recycled polyester base.
