Comments about REI Wheelie Packer Luggage - Boys':
I bought this for for a recent family trip since my son outgrew his kiddie character suitcase. I was really impressed by not only the light weight and generous capacity, but also how smartly designed it is. The large upper pouch is perfect for shoes, stuffed animal "friends", or the 3-1-1 bag as well.
The backpack holds more than you think it will, and is the perfect size for a little traveller. The fact that the front pouch can be used to hold the backpack as well is great for those long treks when a child doesn't want to wear their pack, and you don't want to worry about keeping up with it.
The suitcase accommodates packing cubes, and, as pointed out in other reviews, would also work well as a smaller bag for adults . Love it!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
