When you travel with this stylish hardside spinner, you will be able to immediately recognize your luggage at the baggage carousel. Sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of travel, the fully-lined carry-on features convenient interior compartments....more
This suitcase was everything I was wanting and then some! I love the 360 degree wheels. It made it easy to maneuver through the airport and hotel with no strain on my shoulder or arm. The pattern/color is gorgeous--exactly as shown. I received loads of compliments and it was easy to keep my eye on. I just took a four-day trip to Washington, D.C. and was able to get everything I needed in there and had room left for shopping!
I always try to take only carry on but occasionally end up checking a bag. This bag is so easy to spot among all the black, blue and red bags. The spinning wheels make this so easy on the back. If you are trying to be covert or look elegant this may not be the bag for you. But if you want something that is easy to use a bit of fun and a conversation starter then buy it.
I love this item. PROS: Stands OUT! Mobility is awesome. durable. CONS: A little too big for most airlines at the moment to put in the overhead- get on the flight quickly so you have room to push others out of the way~ Has to go sideways. Also, surface will get scuffed up but the print still stays.
OVERALL: My new Best Friend
As road warrior, I needed a quick replacement. This bag had much stronger 360 wheels than previous bags I tested. Although there are no outside pockets for quick access to travel liquids, it comes with a durable plastic pouch with a red ribbon tied to it. I was able to hang the ribbon outside the bag which helped open/pull the plastic bag out during security time. The exterior is very fun and colorful, which attracted me to this bag. Heys makes a similar exterior, but it is triple in cost. I was worried it was a bit juvenile, but I received compliments at the airport and never lost sight of it! :-)
I must have 20 carry-on size bags. I have taken them at various times all over the world, literally. UGH! They fall over, they don't wheel properly, they are UGLY. So, when I saw this spinner 21-incher I was in love! FINALLY a carry-on with lots of room and is still "cabin-legal" size AND doesn't fall over! It's easy to pull or push and as a bonus it is BEAUTIFUL!! Reminds me of the 60's. Flower power is still in vogue. I would like to buy the bigger size but I'm taking my Mom to Vegas in a couple of weeks and I don't want to have to cut back on the "gambling money", haha. So, I will get the bigger one if I have any money left. :) LOVE IT LOVE IT!!

I ordered this carry on for an upcoming trip. It is so cute, and I rec'd numerous compliments from people in many airports that trip. It handled very well, and I thought the features were great. I was amazed how much stuff I was able to fit in there. When I ordered, I didn't realize the delivery date was the same date I was leaving on the trip. I was bummed. I called Overstock, and by some miracle, I got my new suitcase in time! :)
How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality seems fine so far

I recently used this carry-on for the first time on a 4-day trip. I was nervous about only taking my laptop bag and this carry-on for a winter trip since winter clothes and shoes tend to be bulkier than spring and summer clothes. The suitcase worked perfectly and easily held all of my items without using the expandable zipper option! There was even room to spare. I was truly amazed. I was able to carry this bag onto a United plane without any problems and it fit easily into the overhead compartment.
In this suitcase, I was able to fit:
Two lightweight sweaters
Three sets of pajamas
Undergarments, hosiery and socks
One pair of knee-high boots
One bag of non-liquid toiletries
One bag of liquid toiletries
Miscellaneous items (belts, jewelry, scarf, hair brush, etc.)
The wheels spun easily and the telescopic handle made it easy for me to scoot the bag around wherever I went. The handles on two sides of the bag made it easy for me to lift up stairs and into the overhead bin on the plane.
I received several compliments from my fellow travel companions about how cute the bag was and how it wouldn't be confused with another bag. Someone else commented on how compact and sleek it was for a carry-on. I want to purchase the entire set after my great experience with this bag.
The only negative comment is that Overstock needs to correct some information on their website. This bag does not have more than four luggage compartments in this bag. It has three major storage areas: one small zippered pouch that is attached to the interior lining, a large zippered section on one half of the bag, and an interior belt to hold items in the other side. I don't think this makes the bag any less great, but the information online should be accurate for consumers purchasing the item.
I would highly recommend this bag!
How accurate was the sizing? The sizing was accurate. The bag has a total of 45 linear inches--the maximum for most airline carry-ons.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was great! The surface was nice and hard, but still had a light weight where I could easily lift and maneuver the bag myself.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? There were no major manufacturer defects.
I cannot recommend this product, for several reasons: 1. It's not durable enough: after about six months of use, during which time I used it for 15 flights or so, the upright handle broke. 2. Even when it worked fine, it's too heavy for carry on luggage: nowadays many airlines allow only up to 15 lbs total of carry on and a lot of that weight gets taken by the bag instead. 3. It's actually larger than the carry on size allowance on some airlines, although that was usually not a problem for me. Some good things (before the handle bloke, which made it unusable): 1- easily recognizable, cute pattern, if you check the bag in, 2 - hard shell, which allows you to pack fragile items; however, the seams are not waterproof. Basically, this is a cheaply made bag, which at the end was more trouble than help. It served its purpose for six months for the price and it's done. Overstock delivered very promptly, as usual, and will likely help me with a return and a claim with the manufacturer, if I wanted to bother about it, which I don't. I plan to look for top quality luggage instead.
