2 Wheel Vs 4 Wheel - How Do You Roll?

2 wheel vs 4 wheel blog image

When it comes to choosing luggage for your travels, one of the most important decisions you'll need to make is whether to go with a 2-wheel or 4-wheel design. While both have their pros and cons, understanding the differences between the two can help you make the right choice for your needs. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits of each and highlight some specific brands to consider.

2-Wheel Luggage

2-wheel luggage, also known as roller bags or rollaboards, have two fixed wheels and a telescopic handle for easy maneuverability. They are typically lighter and less bulky than 4-wheel luggage, making them a popular choice for carry-on bags. They also are more practical when traveling along uneven pavements or non-smooth surfaces.  Some popular brands of 2-wheel luggage include Travelpro, Briggs & Riley and Eagle Creek.

Eagle Creek's Tarmac XE collection is a great option for those who prefer 2-wheel luggage. It features an extremely lightweight design and ultra-durable construction, and is available in a variety of sizes.  The Travelpro Platinum Elite 22" Expandable Carry On Rollaboard is another great choice, with a high-quality build and extra features like a USB charging port for charging on the go on their 22" rollaboard.  Finally, Briggs & Riley's Baseline collection offers a range of 2-wheel options for global or domestic traveling, all featuring their signature Simple As That Lifetime Warranty.

4-Wheel Luggage

4-wheel luggage, also known as spinner bags, have four wheels that can rotate 360 degrees, making them incredibly easy to maneuver in any direction. They are typically more stable and easier to push or pull, making them a popular choice when ease of mobility is the highest priority.  Some popular brands of 4-wheel luggage include Travelpro, Delsey and Heys.

Travelpro's Maxlite 5 collection offers lightweight designs in a variety of colors across a wide range of styles.  Delsey Luggage offers a variety of collections in both hardside or softside collections, all featuring smooth-rolling spinner wheels from the budget friendly Helium Aero to the prestige elegance of the Chatelet Air 2.0 collection of spinners.  When it comes to color-pops, style and "that artistic flair" to things, there is not better than Heys Luggage as they offer many hardsided luggage options in just about every color you can image, and they didn't leave the youngster's out either, as many styles of their kids luggage is also features in spinner versions.


Ultimately, the decision between 2-wheel and 4-wheel luggage will come down to your personal preferences and travel needs. While 2-wheel luggage may be smoother on uneven terrain and lightweight, 4-wheel luggage offers unparalleled maneuverability and stability. Whichever option you choose, be sure to choose a reputable brand that offers quality construction and a range of convenient features to make your travels as stress-free as possible.
