I got this suitcase because the dimensions made it the biggest carry-on I could get. However, the dimensions of 24x16x8 are a bit off. I think they are just for the suitcase itself (or maybe the inside of it), or don't include the wheels because it is a little too big to fit into an overhead compartment on a plane if you try to put it in wheels-first (it has to go in sideways, which takes up a lot more room). So, I would say the actual dimensions are probably closer to 26x18x8. In any case though, this seems like a sturdy suitcase, and I will keep it for future travel.
Needed this on a pinch as I bought way to many things on a recent trip. Used it twice so far and has served its purpose well. Looks good, easy to pack and to handle - what's not to like; as a frequent traveler with far more expensive luggage I find this piece to offer excellent value.
