On a trip last week to the U.S. Virgin Islands’ picturesque St. Croix and The Buccaneer Hotel, I traveled with Burton Snowboard’s Drifter Roller Travel Bag. As I only do carry on when traveling under a week, especially if I have transfers, it proved to be a formidable travel companion.
The dimensions (H: 22 in, W: 13 in, D: 10 in) were perfect for my three flights each way to get to and back from the island. Usually it is just two flights if leaving from the city, but I took flights from White Plains. Super lightweight, the roller without anything weighs 7.7 lb, which is due to the polyester body and use of IXION lightweight skate wheels. The wheels are also easily replaceable if you want to spice up your roller some more, but of course that isn’t needed with the trendy camo option of the Drifter Roller.
I was able to pack five days worth of clothes, a pair of loafers and espadrilles, tech accessories and non-liquid grooming essentials and toiletries. The interior mesh dividers helped make sure the roller would close, but the luggage had an expandable feature if needed for an extra three inches. There’s also an exterior pocket for any travel docs, but that’s all that can really fit if the interior is filled up.
More from St. Croix and The Buccaneer Hotel coming soon!
