Rohan Volition 60L Luggage

Promise

An innovative, generously-sized bag which offers the perfect case for world travel in conjunction with its optional components.

Performance

Whether you’re taking a luxury 5 star holiday or backpacking down a dirt track to the nearest hostel, you can tailor your luggage accordingly before you head off.

Rohan’s new volition series gives you ‘the freedom to choose, the freedom to travel’ by allowing the components you need to be purchased separately and added or removed as desired.

This means you can fit a wheeled chassis, a rucksack harness or simply use an over the shoulder strap to suit your style of trip.

The Volition 60 litre bag weights 1.4kg and is built around a compression moulded base and back, creating a sturdy structure with ergonomic shape for optimum fit and comfort.

Using a composite polyamide called X-Pac (developed from olympic yachting sail technology), the bags fabric is one of the toughest, lightest and most durable luggage materials in the world. The inside has a PU waterproof coating, the outer is water repellent that also enlists a heavy-duty tarpaulin fabric in key scuffable areas.

Consisting of a main compartment and one front organiser pocket the zips are water resistant an external attachment system offers the use of optional extra’s like walking poles or an umbrella.

The harness module’s high-density polyethylene back plate can be adjusted according to your spine length before fitting it into place. Four sturdy clips lock in its two alloy spars and within seconds you’re ready to carry heavy loads in comfort with this 880g extra. It’s fully padded and has a hip belt, chest strap and tensioning straps above the shoulders.

If there’s room you can even whip the harness off at checkin to place inside the bag itself, avoiding the extra hassle of heading to oversized luggage that excess straps generally incur.

If it’s paved streets en route, slot in the trolley system and instantly turn your rucksack into functional wheeled luggage with a wide axle, extendable handle and tough aluminium frame. It’s an extra 1140g to your pack, but saves your back from unnecessary strain.

The bag in its bare form includes internal and external compression straps, top and side carry handles and a removable padded shoulder strap.

Verdict

The Volition series is Rohan’s answer to versatile travellers, providing a user friendly solution to trip specific preferences where ever you end up. While it offers little competition to sport specific luggage, its robust build, stylish design and versatile nature will see any intrepid traveller through their adventure. Our testing included the fully laden pack being thrown on and off 4 planes and 2 buses and still it looks like new.
