This is a nice suitcase, but it is a little narrower than the rest. Overstock advertised the dimensions as 29"x18"x12". The actual width is 17.5 inces as stated on the manufacturer's label, which matches the width I measured mine to be. Airline rules allow a combined measurement of 62 inches. This one is 29 + 17..5 + 12 = 58.5. It could be wider by 3.5 inches and still pass the rules. But for the price, it is a great value and I am sure I will have no problem filling it up to the maximum 50 pound weight limit allowed by the airlines. I weighed the suitcase itself at 10 pounds 8 ounces. That leaves 39 and a half pounds of room for the contents.
I ordered this suitcase about a week and a half before I was to leave for Hawaii so I was very glad it arrived quickly in five days. I chose to order from Overstock because they had the bigger size suitcase. Other retailers offered the same suitcase but in a smaller size. I was very happy I decided to go with the larger size because my suitcase was filled to the brim with extra goodies on my way back home. There was plenty of space for everything and I especially loved the shoe section of the suitcase. I normally put my shoes in a plastic bag and throw them in but with this suitcase there is no need to do that. I also loved the color. My red suitcase was easier to find in baggage claim and withstood the harsh conditions under which bags are handled. I would definitely recommend this suitcase!
I purchased 4 of these suitcases, one for each family member, for our vacation to Hawaii. I will tell you that we jammed them full for the trip back (lightest one was 45 lbs; heaviest was 49.5 lbs!) and I really expected to see some ripped seams or split zippers but they held up great. The wheels are really strong and are mounted so they won't snap off, as happened to our old suitcase. Also, there is a handle on the bottom so if you're picking it up by the top & bottom (ie when it's coming off the airport baggage carosol) you don't have to use the wheels. Time will tell how durable they remain, but based on this first trip I think we'll have them for several years to come.
Many reviews mentioned the chemical smell. It was there but I kept the suitcase open in a well ventilated space and the odor went away. I think I also used Febreze or the such. My advise to you -- don't buy this immediately before the trip. Now the suitcase may only have the trace of that plastic smell, but it is not transferred to the clothes inside. Durable; good wheels and handle. Good deal for the money. Pretty accurate representation of color (I bought the rusty-orange one). Survived several flights so far. I am a big fan of cheaper luggage because the cheap and the expensive ones last for about the same; moreover, they get dirty and worn-out at about the same rate, so you can keep replacing the cheap ones every several years or so and your luggage always looks neat.
How accurate was the sizing? accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. OK
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I bought this suitcase for my fiance and we were both surprised how attractive it was -even better than the picture. It's a good size too. I would highly recommend it in grey- it's the best looking inexpensive piece of luggage I've ever bought.
Based on other reviews I was suspicious but at the price I thought it was worth a try. Not really. Everything about these bags screams "cheap" and "not going to last long." I immediately boxed them up and sent them back. Will look for a better deal elsewhere.

When is this luggage going on sell again?? I was going to buy another one today but I realized the price has went up. I bought mines for around 38 dollars and I am trying to figure out when is it going to be that cheap again? I really want a second one but I'd rather wait until the price goes back down.
