[st_content_ad]How the OGIO ALPHA Convoy 522S Travel Bag Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. This spinner suitcase comes with customizable packing solutions. You can use the center compartment as a single space or divide it into two with zippered mesh panels. There’s also a separate large front compartment that can be accessed two ways, plus plenty of pockets. OGIO sells a compatible storage system that integrates with the suitcase to create separate space for toiletries or electronics.
  • Portability: 8/10. The suitcase pulls along easily, thanks to four smooth spinner wheels and a retractable handle that can be set at three different heights. At 7.2 lbs, the ALPHA Convoy 522S is fairly lightweight. The bag measures 22 x 14 x 9 inches, which should fit most airline carry-on requirements.
  • Durability: 10/10. The bag is made from 100 percent Cordura Poly that is tough, yet easy to clean. This material won’t get scuffed up the way a hardside bag would.
  • Style: 8/10. The suitcase comes in four colors: black, gray, bright orange, and camouflage print.

Final Verdict: Need a bag that will help you stay organized? Check out OGIO’s ALPHA Convoy 522S.
