Travelers Club Metropolitan Rolling Backpack Review


Users really like the Travelers Club Metropolitan Rolling Backpack for its high-quality construction, roomy dimensions, separate laptop compartment, and two-year warranty. It features durable 600-denier fabric, a single-rod telescoping handle, and in-line skate wheels.

Shoppers posting Travelers Club Metropolitan Rolling Backpack (starting at $33, Amazon) reviews at Walmart award this model nearly five stars for its overall design and functionality. They say it has tons of room for textbooks, overnight gear and more, plus it's easy to maneuver, comfortable to carry, and made of durable material. This is the only cheap rolling backpack we found that actually has a separate laptop compartment, although one consumer who posted a review on Buzzillions considers the 15-inch maximum laptop size a disappointing limitation.

One of our picks for best cheap rolling backpack, the Travelers Club Metropolitan is made of 600-denier polyester and sports in-line skate wheels and a single-rod telescoping handle. The backpack straps and top carrying handle are padded, and the bag's moderate weight (less than the 6-pound shipping weight) won't add too much heft to your load. Additionally, the Travelers Club Metropolitan is equipped with interior and exterior compartments, a water bottle holder, and the aforementioned laptop compartment. It comes with a two-year limited warranty, which is rare in cheap rolling backpacks.

We consider the two-year warranty a sign of quality and were hard-pressed to find any other cheap rolling backpacks that even come with a warranty. Users highly compliment this rolling backpack's size and ease of use. Overall we give it an A+.
