Patagonia MLC Wheelie

The Patagonia MLC Wheelie is a more structured, wheeled version of their popular MLC (Maximum Legal Carry-On) travel bag. The MLC Wheelie meets most airline carry-on requirements, is made with recycled fabric, and is laptop compatible.

The Patagonia MLC Wheelie holds enough gear to travel the world without ever having to check-it. Wheel the MLC when you’re beat, and wear it as a backpack when your hustling and hauling your belongings over terrain that isn’t suitable for rolling.

The Patagonia MLC Wheelie features a super-robust wheel package and a retractable U-shaped handle for precision steering when you’re walking against the flow. The main compartment is large enough to carry a few outfits, and has three zippered inside pockets for toiletries and electronics. Exterior zippered pockets provide easy access to travel docs and vital gear. There’s even a fleece-lined pocket for sunglasses. When the going gets bumpy, you can shoulder the load with backpack straps that hide away when not in use.


Built with a 1,200-denier 100% recycled polyester, and a 200-denier polyester lining. Polyurethane coating and a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

I also highly recommend the Original Patagonia MLC. The Original MLC is a bit lighter, less bulky, and converts into a more comfortable backpack than the Wheelie, but the original MLC doesn’t roll. Check them both out to find which suitcase is best for you.
