I needed a cheap suitcase for an overseas trip a few weeks ago. I figured I had nothing to loose trying out this piece of luggage especially with reviews that lean towards positive, and I like blue. You do have to take into account though that you are buying a piece of luggage for less than it will cost to check it on just about any major airline. When you take that into consideration it's a darn fine suitcase. I had no major problems with it. Sure the handle feels extremely loose when fully extended, but unless you are 7+ feet tall you will do just fine extending it halfway (to it's first notch) and it works and feels good. Overall it looks pretty cheaply made especially when you poke around and look at the backs of rivets and whatnot, and the luggage ID window on the back was hanging half off the suitcase right out of the box, which I immediately took off anyways as I don't like to display my ID info to the entire world, but rather than look at all it's short comings here's what counts... I flew from Chicago Ohare to Paris, Paris to Helsinki, Copenhagen to Riga, Latvia, Riga, Latvia back to Helsinki, Helsinki to Amsterdam then Amsterdam back to Chicago Ohare, it was handled by baggage handlers at each of those airports/airlines and the end result is a missing zipper handle on one of the front pockets along with some minor wear and tear on the corners, but no rips or tears or anything handle is intact and functional, and the wheels still roll freely. And besides all that it endured 2 full weeks of bus travel and regular use around Scandinavia. I'd say right there the bag has already paid for itself and then some, and it's in more than good enough shape to handle many more trips.
So basically if you want something super nice you're going to have to shell out a heck of a lot of money for samsonite or whatever, but if you just need a suitcase that's going to get the job done and not look bad doing it, this one fits the bill!

I used my Amsterdam Light Weight 25-inch Rolling Upright Suitcase for the first time on a trip to Germany and loved it. It held up very well and suffered no apparent damage during the trip. It was a convenient size and the inside pockets were a welcome bonus. Although I have only used the suitcase once, I would definitly recommend it for travel.
The Travel Select Amsterdam Light Weight bag is a durable bag that I recently purchased to use for my flight home for Christmas vacation. It was the perfect size for about two weeks worth of clothes and Christmas presents (though I pack light almost always since I am used to just bringing carry-on luggage to avoid fees). While this bag does not count as carry-on, the depth and expandable feature of the bag make it great for checked luggage.
Unfortunately I can't give this bag a high review or recommendation. After packing my bag, I tried to pull out the handle used for pulling the bag on its wheels. The handle refused to come out. My roommate and I both fiddled with it, and she even stated that she had the same kind of bag and it often got stuck. I was going to be late for my plane so I ended up pulling the bag by the regular handle (not comfortable or convenient) through the metro and the airport because I would have had to take out everything I had packed to fix it.
When I arrived home, my dad took apart the entire handle to find the problem. In the end, the button was BROKEN. The inside contraption was cracked right in half. I don't understand how a company can send broken products like these out. Since it was a cheap buy and I need the bag for my return trip next week, my dad super glued the piece back together, but we'll see how that works. My dad was weary about buying online to begin with, so I convinced him to purchase this product because of the low price. However, our experience with the bag proved him right.
Maybe buying in stores is a better bet to ensure quality.
I purchased this suit case for my daughter, she loves it, it's the perfect size, not too big...not too small! After shopping around I found it was tough to find Navy Blue (her favorite color) and this price, well it was terrific. Another fine Overstock purchase!
The handle broke after only two uses and the stitching came loose. I had to dump the bag in Florida and buy something new to get home. I would have just been out the money since it would have cost me $xx just to get it back home for a refund or waranty, but Overstock's customer service was wonderful. Thanks Overstock for making this right with a store credit, I appreciate it.
Did the product fit true to size? It does fit in the overhead compartment perfectly. The size is great! I just wish it would have held up.
How is the quality of the product? Poor

Needed a new carry-on for a trip out West and decided to buy this suitcase.
It had plenty of room for all my things, plus added items I took as gifts, and
was very pleased with it. Would definitely recommend.
