Ah the inevitable PC question, how in the hell do I pack 2 years worth of gear into 2 checked bags that only measure up to 107 inches?! Yes, I have 6 months to purchase and pack, but as I have discovered I am somewhat of a type A personality. Yes, I love lists and planning things. No, I will not have a complete meltdown if things don't go to plan but I do like to plan. So, a grand total of a minute after receiving my invite I turned to my father and said I wanted supplies for china for Christmas. So, for Christmas i had a nice functional haul of treats, with the exception of my family's idea of a joke in a fuzzy panda hat. But I digress, back to the suitcase dilemma. I am so used to hauling a massive suitcase from Australia to the Italy that the concept of getting a rugged bag that will survive hell or high-water, rather than the comforts of the Dubai airport is foreign to me.
Therefore, I pose this question to you fellow PCers, what would you recommend for a good rolling duffle? I am currently stuck on osprey, due to the lovely pro-deal, but am still a bit unsure, due to the limited size and frankly the only remaining one is a butt ugly green color... No offense to anyone that has purchased said duffle or osprey but yeah. It's ugly. :P
