I got the Xcase Snake Print, which looks nicer in reality than in the picture. I also own an earlier model (1 year ago) of the same carry-on and it has held up very nicely even with all the international travel I do. The new one, Snake Print, appears to have improved wheels - slightly larger and sturdier "tires". It also has a lock on the side which the old one did not. I dont' know how useful this is since the point of a carry-on is that you bring it with you at all times. I don't think this bag would hold up well for checking in, but then again it is small enough that you shouldn't have to. I have always been allowed to bring the old one onboard, even in Europe where planes are smaller and check-in agents think they are put on earth to discipline their paying travelers.
Today I received my 20' carry on in the snake pattern. It's gorgeous!!! I immediately ordered the cosmetic carry on case because I can fit my netbook in it and utilize it as my purse when traveling. I need luggage that is light weight due to artrithis. When I picked up the box from the front door, I thought , NO WAY!!! It was just as light weighted as my netbook. I would love to order a larger suitcase but I don't need two? If you ever decide to sell the larger suitcases separately, please e-mail me.Also, the inside of the suitcase needs to be displayed. The lining is gorgeous!!!! I must sign off for now-I'm still shopping.
I got my Heys in the python print and I always get asked about it. Spared it from scuffs for as long as I could, but it will scratch if some inconsiderate person tries to shove more in the overhead than he should - you know what I'm talking about.
Like the suitcase enough that I wanted to purchase a larger size only to learn it was not available. It would have been nice to have had a matching piece.
