Product Review: Lipault Wheeled Carry-On Brief

SmarterTravel

What Is it: The Lipault Paris Wheeled Carry-On Brief.

Price and Where to Buy: $183.94 on Amazon and Lipault’s website.

Pros:

  • Small size is perfect for short business trips (15.7″ x 13″ x 7.1″)
  • Lightweight (5.4 lbs)
  • Made of water-resistant Nylon Twill fabric
  • Sturdy handles allow the bag to be carried over the shoulder
  • Or, use the retractable handle to wheel the bag
  • Three separate zippered compartments, including a padded tablet and laptop section
  • Handy built-in pockets and dividers (like elastic shoe pockets and phone compartments)
  • Suitcase lock included

Cons:

  • At $183.94, this is a very expensive bag

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. This is perfect for business travelers who take short trips with their laptop.
  • Portability: 10/10. You’ll definitely find space for this wheeled brief in the overhead compartment or train luggage rack, and could probably cram this under your airplane seat in a pinch.
  • Value: 5/10. $183.94 is a high price tag for a bag that won’t cut it on longer trips, size-wise.
  • Durability: 10/10. All components of the wheeled brief, from the retractable handle to the fabric, are well-made. Plus, all Lipault products come with a three-year guarantee.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The wheeled brief is a nice-looking bag—we tested the purple color and got lots of compliments. (It also comes in a less eye-catching black and espresso.)

Final Verdict: If you take short trips for business, and hate carrying your laptop, the Lipault Wheeled Brief is a great solution!
