REVIEWED: Lat 56 Road Warrior RW_02 carry-on suitcase

Is this the ultimate go-to travel bag? The Road Warrior RW_02 is a stunning, streamlined cabin bag ideal for business trips and weekends away, but it’s sufficiently neutral to become a go-to bag for all kinds of travel. It steers clear from being a ‘gadget bag’ by swerving dedicated laptop and iPad compartments, concentrating instead on squeezing as much room as possible while adding some unique design flourishes that will appeal to all kinds of travellers. If there’s one things the Road Warrior RW_02 lacks, it’s a wet pocket for basic toiletries, while we’re not convinced the shoe bag is necessary. The pockets on the inside lining are awesome – really helpful for staying organised – while the easy access liquids compartment on the outside is genius (and double as a stash pocket for an iPad Mini or book). Lat 56’s Road Warrior RW_02 is a success, and well worth the price. To the airport!
