I shop Overstock all the time. I was very pleased with this purchase. This suitcase is all it is advertized to be. I wanted a 26 inch, light weight , wheeled suitcase. It is very light compared to my other luggage.--weighs about 10 pounds. For a wheeled suitcase that is a very light weight. The wheels move in all directions. You can move it without raising the handle. It is expandable so you could probably put lots of clothes in it. I would recommend this suitcase.

I purchased this suitcase because of the many 4 day trips I like to take and my 28 inch was a bit too large. When wheeling, it has a smooth motion. Plus with the cool blue color, it's easy to locate at baggage claim. The interior has ample pockets which are very useful. The reason why I'm only giving this bag 4 stars instead of 5 is because with the built in locks, I don't think that there's a way of knowing when TSA enters my bag. Usually the indicator turns red. In summary, this is a very nice bag even if it is a bit pricey.

This is an excellent piece of luggage. I own the matching 30" bag and together or alone these uprights are easy to move, with loads of room in a sturdy style.

I was very happy with the olympia american airlines upright. It is a good buy for the price. It is of good size and conformes with all airlines restrictions.Plenty of pockets on the outside for travel documents.

We just returned from our trip to Mexico, I purchased the 21"and 26" suitcase. The 360 wheels were amazing. I had no trouble navagating thru the airports and airplane aisles. Both bieces held up well, can't say the same for some of our older luggage. Alot of broken zippers and items inside being crushed or broken from the rough handling. But my Skyhawks looked great!

A nice mid-size suitcase. It is adequate for a long weekend or even a week long trip. It ended up being a little small for my upcoming Australian trip but I am still very glad I bought the suitcase. By the way, it only spins when it is on all four wheels and it is quite stable when upright. It is very light which is wonderful with the new weight restrictions.

Needed new luggage for two teen-age daughters and this 26" roller filled the bill. Four wheels for easy navigation through airports and very lightweight construction is exactly what we were looking to buy. The price was half of comparable luggage and since it's only use this 5-6 times a year, it is a terrific value. We have already purchased the 24" for ourselves. I also like the fact that it is light gray in color and easy to spot coming off the luggage conveyer at the terminal.

Suitcase was purchased for a grandson who , I expect, will be using it well into his college years. It appears well made of quality materials and good construction of handles, zippers, and pockets. Wheels work smoothly. Spins easily. Good looking luggage w/ adequate zippered pockets for small items. Not sure about the American airlines logo but , as other reviewers mentioned, doesn't matter! Am considering purchasing the carry on size for grandson and would definitely buy another 26 in if I needed one for myself!

I fly regularly on a weekly basis for business, and I bought this upright because my previous two bags were destroyed by the airlines. At first I didn't like the fact that it had the American Airline Logo all over it, because I refuse to fly American Airlines due to a previous complication. But now that doesn't bother me, because the quality and sturdiness of this bag has more than made up for what logo is on it. Based upon my experience, I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone. You can buy a cheaper bag, but none would be able to handle what this bag has been able to handle for this price.

I just came back from a three-week trip around France for which I purchased this suitcase. I was a bit hesitant at first since I've only purchased Samonsite or Kenneth Cole suitcases in the last 10 years, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of construction of this suitcase. The 26" size is very convenient for a longer trip -- not too small, not too large. It does expand but not significantly, but enough to fit a few extra purchases. This was also my first spinner suitcase, and overall I think it's a great feature. Having four wheels let me roll the bag through tight spots like tiny European hotel elevators, between parked cars, and even in my hotel room. The only downside is that the wheels aren't inline skate types, so the rolling isn't as smooth as with my other suitcases, but the ligher weight and added maneuverability make up for that. Overall this is an excellent suitcase for the price, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The only reasons it didn't receive five stars overall was the non-inline wheels and that the exterior did look a tad scruffed up after my trip, which was a little disturbing since it was its very first adventure, but since it held over 30kg nicely (we bought many bottles of wine to bring home) and was banged around a lot, those are minor details.

I have taken this suitcase on a couple of overseas trips so far and gave it to the airlines as checked baggage. It has taken the rigours of these two trips to Europe extremely well - the frame got dented a bit (not the fault of the suitcase but the way it was handled), but the leather shows no signs of wear. The quality of the leather is good and the zippers are easy to use. The interior is cloth lined and one can stuff quite a bit into the suitcase - mine tipped the scales at 40lbs. There are 2 large pockets in front to pack items like toiletries or shoes. Why the 4 stars? - (1) the suitcase is not quite the 26" that is claimed - I measured it at slightly less than 25" (not a huge defect, but perhaps the manufacurer should label it a 25"); (2) the pull up handle does not pull up easily - it has become easier to do that with use and maybe it will slide smoothly and (3) the wheels do not glide as easily as some of my other suitcases. Maybe it would help if I use a bit of WD40 on the wheels and slide-up handle. However for the price (when compared to a couple of same-sized Claire Chase suitcases), this one is a bargain and these slight "defects" should not keep you from buying this suitcase. Being a leather suitcase, it is unique and easy to pick out from all of the other nylon baggage and it appears to be well made. It is the correct size to stop you from going over the weight limit that the airlines are enforcing today. I would recommend this product.

I just got back from a trip with this bag, and found it so easy to handle and manuver, with its wheel design. I really liked the interior design also.

Seems rugged and functional. A good bag for the money.

I had hoped that it would contain a suit or shirt attachment that can be folded into the lid
