I purchased this carry on for its light weight and spinner wheels. I wanted to be able to turn it sideways and easily roll it down the airplane aisle. It turns out it is narrow enough the wider way to easily roll down the aisle without getting caught at each seat. Already a major improvement over my old carry on bag. It fit easily in the overhead compartment on a 737, the short way (i.e. wheels in) which enables you to take advantage of a small space. While it conforms to carry on guidelines, I was happily surprised to discover how much it was able to hold. I fit all of my contents for a three day trip, including sneakers, in one half of the suitcase. A convenient divider keeps it all in place without having things move around. The divider also contains several pockets so you can keep track of small items. I wasn't so sure about the quality when it first arrived because the plastic zipper was initially difficult to move but I rubbed a candle over it and opened/closed the wrap-around zipper multiple times and that solved the problem. Also it held up fine on one leg of my flight on a small plane where all roller bags had to be checked. No damage or scratches after coming through the luggage carousel. It is very light weight and easy to lift and roll. The color was nicer than I expected from the photo and description. It is called gold but it actually has a very subtle peach shimmer to it, not bright gold. It is a more sophisticated look. I would recommend this bag. The 4 rather than 5 stars is because I am not sure if the quality will hold up over time, but for the price (I paid $** with free shipping), it is a great bag and a great deal.

I haven't flown in decades. I purchased yhis cute carry on based on looks, price, and functionality. I'll be in Houston for a week and needed to get a small spinner carry on. My previous bag wasn't hardsided and this is. I cannot wait to use it!

This carry-on looks and is better made than what I was expecting. Inside is very detailed and has nicely made compartments for little things like jewelry or make up, the spinner wheels work just fine and also the zipper. I'm loving it! I think it will hold well through my trips :).
The carry-on spinner is OK quality (it opens all the way on the short side/bottom) and I assumed that it has possibility to expand, but it doesn't. Next time I'll read product description more careful.
