The price of this case is what attracted me, so I purchased four of them. Our airline is charging $25 per piece of checked luggage per flight, so I figured I'd eliminate paying that by purchasing new carry-on luggage for my family. It is well within the required measurements. I haven't used it to travel yet, but I think it will be large enough for a trip that is a week or less if you pack wisely. The pull handle has two convenient heights...which is good for small children all the way up to someone who is about six feet tall.

This has been one of the most reliable carry-on suitcases I have ever owned. The hard sides allows it to be carried on or in the belly without getting damaged. I have taken this around the world several times and am always amazed at how convenient the size is, how much I can actually store in it, and how nicely it fits in the overhead compartment. Everybody in my family has borrowed this suitcase at one time or another so I have purchased additional as gifts. I have a larger hard side suitcase by a different manufacturer that does not even compare.

I know own three of these and am pleased. One I use to cart around professional materials, the others are used by family members for travel. They are bright, so easy to spot on a conveyor belt at baggage claim. The lighter colors do mean they will get marked up, but we don't mind. The wheels move great, it's nice to have all four. The handle extends and collapses wonderfully and is a good length for my body (I'm 5'5"). The zippers work. There's lots of room. It is on the large size of carryons and snugly fits in the larger overhead compartments -- if you pack it full, with the expandable parts or much in the outside pockets, it will not fit in those compartments.

With the price of luggage fees on airlines going up, my family and I are trying to carry more aboard the plane. I bought this for that purpose. The spinner wheels make it even nicer. The price was very reasonable. I am going to get another one for my son.. Hopefully this is going to cut down on checked luggage....I would definitely recommend this piece of luggage.

I purchased 2 of these for a trip to The Netherlands last summer. They held 2 weeks worth of clothes, shoes, makeup, gifts for family, toiletries, etc. I like the added security of the plastic zip pocket for my liquids...a little added insurance. These roll VERY easy. We drug them through Chicago O'Hare airport, Schipohl in Amsterdam, & several streets in between. They were easy & light enough (even packed) to pick up to hop on the train, subway, bus, trunk of our van. The colors are outstanding!! They are bright & VERY easy to spot in a crowd! Which made following my husband through Amsterdam easy! You will receive many compliments on them! We have the purple & the orange. I will be odering one in lime for my daughters trip with us this summer. The handle slides up & down with ease & stays locked in place. I would highly recommend this carry on to anyone looking for one.

I ordered two of the American Airlines Skyhawk 21-inch spinner carry on bag after reading all of the positive reviews and I am NOT disappointed! The bag is exactly as pictured, large enough to carry clothes and some shoes for several days, is easy to maneuver, and looks great. I ordered the black color, and as pictured, it is more of a shimmery dark charcoal color- not matte black. I like the color, though, it makes it look different than the sea of black luggage at the airport. I would definitely order this again and would recommend to friends/family.

This is a great suitcase on wheels. It is easy to push it upright through the airport and the size is perfect. Skip checking in bags because its the largest bag that will still fit in the overhead compartment. You can easily pack 4-7 days worth of clothes in here with a pair of shoes if you pack it neatly. I'd buy this one again, and just might for a family member.

I needed carry-on luggage for each of my 5 family members for an up and coming 7 day trip where flight was the primary form of travel. I wanted something modern looking and high quality. I had seen the Heys XCase in a high end sales magazine and loved the look of the luggage, but could not afford the high end price tag for each family member. I searched around and found the best price at Overstock, in addition to the great insights provided by the reviewers. When the luggage arrived it was packaged neatly in individual boxes. There were no flaws to 4 of the 5 cases; however the red one - which was actually more burgundy, had a small scrape on it in an inconspicuous location. We did not fret since this specific color belonged to our 6 year-old, who will end up banging and scraping the luggage even more. The carry-on rolls wonderfully on all surfaces, it is better than any other wheeled luggage I have tried. The case is spacious, the handle is easy to operate, and the interior is good quality. This carry-on is spacious and will easily hold a weeks worth of clothing for a child or small to medium size adult. The zipper can be a bit stubborn at times and the fact the case open sideways makes accessing contents a relatively difficult task if you are on the go, but otherwise we are completely satisfied.

I bought six of these cases (one for each member of the family). It's a great product with the exception oif the zipper design. We went on one trip via plane and carried on the luggage. If the case is packed full, or slightly stressed, the stitching can pull away from the molded case. While the outside of the case is durable plastic, it closes by means of a zipper adhered to the plastic shell. This zipper is "stitched" rather than welded (for lack of a better term) to the shell presenting the opportunity for failure which one of the six cases experienced. I would much rather see a more mechanical method of closure for long-term durability.

We purchased two of these for our family Christmas trip. As soon as they came in we ordered one more. We spent 10 days traveling through northern Spain by bus and train, our bags in tow for much of the time. We walked several miles from various train and bus stations to hotels and subways. They banged and bumped over old cobblestone roads, gravel, packed sand, high curbs and miles of concrete and blacktop. I was worried the sand was going to muck up the wheels, but so far, so good. My son got one wheel stuck in a grate and I thought he might break it pulling it out, but it's still in good shape. I'm considering getting a couple more so we all have one. The bright colors we also great for keeping track and claiming them at airports.

This is a great bag. I work for an airline so do a lot of weekend hops to see friends and family. This bag is a great size for a couple of changes and an extra pair of shoes. Love the shoe pockets and other amenities. Even expanded it will still fit nicely in the overhead. Perfect for the backup clothes in case your bags don't arrive when you do. Excellent buy.

I travel a lot, and carry on my luggage. Since my family gave me a 25" case with 4 wheels, having them has become a must!!! SO MUCH EASIER to move through airport, and it can be pushed down the aisle of the plane. This case will have plenty of room for two weeks in Europe and yet is small enough to fit under the seat in front of me so I can rest my feet on it (I'm very short).

Thank you Overstock. I had been borrowing my grandma's suitcase but my family and myself are taking her to Reno for her 80th birthday so i needed a suitcase. It'll work out great. Thanks

This is my favorite of this family of suitcases; I have also purchased the 28-inch and 24.4-inch models. This one is packed with features! Many pockets, and padded pocket for the laptop and a waterproof pouch inside, too. I'm looking forward to using it on an upcoming trip and already know that I will love using it.

This is just a fantastic piece of luggage for the price. First of all, I love that this piece of luggage is very lightweight. The manufacturer has thought of everything, trust me. In addition to the built-in water bottle holder on the outside of the luggage, the piece also includes a 3-1-1 bag! The only drawback is that everyone in your family will want to borrow it. Consider buying one for yourself, plus a spare for the other family members.

Bought this as a gift for a family member for Christmas. Can't comment yet on durability, but it seemed like a quality product and I liked the laptop feature. I am going to get one for myself for a trip coming up in April.

We purchased 4 of these carry-on cases. One in black, red and two in silver. All of the colors are sharp looking. There was no shipping on two of the cases and for the other two very small shipping fee. They arrived in a week and a half and in perfect shape. Although we have not used them for our vacation yet they are packed and ready to go. There are four of us in our family and we have decided not to check bags any more when traveling because of the fees. These cases hold a lot of clothing (we've got each packed with a weeks worth of summer clothing and a pair of shoes). So far we are happy with the purchase and love the look of our new luggage. Plus they are very easy to pull around with the handle and wheels. My two sons (6 & 9) have been pulling them all around the house getting ready for the airport. I'm so happy that we'll never be paying those extra baggage fees again!
The perfect list of what to take on a trip to the beach depends on who is coming and how long you'll be staying. For example, if you and your significant other are going to the beach alone, you will most likely bring far less than if you were bringing your entire family. Packing more things in your luggage than you think you'll need will ensure that your beach trip never has a dull moment.
