At 6.35kg the Rig 9800 is far from svelte, but the 123l of storage, plus the sturdy construction based around the plastic ‘SLED’ backplate, means that it’s well placed to withstand boisterous baggage handlers.

The SLED system means the bag holds its form well, handy when packing, and also allows it to slip up steps and curbs relatively easily. The wide spaced wheels give ample stability and ground clearance is good too. This bulk does mean it takes up a fair bit of space when not in use, however.

The interior is cavernous and easy to organise

Numerous internal pockets and a divider mean well organised packing is easy, with the top section able to be partitioned off for a helmet. Exterior compression straps help when it’s not fully packed, but the stiff material means there’s a lot of space left inside when only partially full, as you can’t fully cinch it in.

The extendable handle has reasonable, if not brilliant, ergonomics. However, we’d like it to extend a touch further to prevent it catching your heels when pulling. Three grab handles make lugging the bag off baggage carousels straightforward enough.
