“cheapism helps you find the cheapest "best buys"” — lifehacker

Users expect a good cheap rolling backpack to be lightweight and durable, easy to pull and/or carry, and to contain multiple compartments. Durable fabric boasts a high denier (a measure of its thickness) or is a ripstop polyester. In-line skate wheels roll well over most terrains, and self-repairing zippers are easy to fix if the teeth split or get out of line. Users are divided on which type of handle is better -- double or single rod; some have a preference for telescoping. Warranties are hard to come by in the cheap rolling backpacks category, so any guarantee is a plus.
