I've only used this carry-on for one trip so far, so I can't vouch for the durability. But after reading reviews about it I decided it was a good deal. It feels sturdy, wheels easily, and the zippers operate smoothly. I like the plastic or vinyl zippered cosmetic case that snaps into place inside, and the detachable garment bag would be handy for hanging nice clothes. The two outside pockets are deep and actually store more than you would think. It has handles on three sides, making it easy to grab and carry without straining your back. I thought the red color (maroon) would stand out, but unfortunately other travelers probably had the same idea, so it was hard to pick out on the luggage cart. It comes with a lock but I couldn't figure out how to reset the code, and it is not a TSA approved one, so it would not be good for checked luggage.
I have purchased other luggage from Traveler's Choice but needed a carry on for a short trip. The telescoping handle was long enough for my 5'6" height and was comfortable when walking through the airport. It fit just fine in the airplane overhead compartment. There is ample room, there are plenty of pockets, compartments, and good straps to keep clothing from getting dislodged. I was very happy to utilize the detachable plastic zip case when presenting my small liquids, etc. at the TSA security screening area. I am a believer in ballistic nylon, as it holds up so well. I would recommend this product and manufacturer to anyone contemplating a trip.

My wife was very excited to get such a great looking and functional rolling cart. Unfortunately, the very first time we went out of town with it, the telescoping handle malfunctioned, rendering further use very difficult. Would NOT recommend.
This carry-on was just what my husband wanted. He needed to replace a 22" Samsonite that lost its wheel. The replacement wheel was $30+ shipping. So we searched for one just like it. This was just as good if not better. Of course, we will see how it holds up in the future. It measures closer to 22" which is great. Good price.
We purchased this carry-on complete our set of Traveler's Choice El Dorado suitcases. The ballistic nylon is the most durable fabric you can get; the only thing tougher would be a hard-shell case. This meets all the carry-on dimensions required by the airlines. If you should ever have to check it, this suitcase will stand up to all the abuse the baggage handlers can dish out. I'd say that I'd buy this product again, but I think it may outlast me!
I bought this for my son to go on a four day business trip. He is 6'4" and packed two suits four dress shirts and an extra pant and shirt. It was a little tight for 46 L suit coats, but it worked and zipped and came back in great condition. He needed a carry on with lots of room and this did the job! Was so pleased that I will probably go back and order a larger bag for checking in the same brand!
- How accurate was the sizing? Extremely
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. So far so good
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
This appears to be a good product for the money. I've travelled with the bag only once and checked it and although it had some rough treament and picked up some stains there was no structural damage. Roomier inside than I expected.
- How accurate was the sizing? Accurate sizing, more roomy than I expected due to the expandable top.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality appears to be good. I've traveled with the bag once and it was more than adequate
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I have not used it yet, but it is exactly what I expected. It is obviously sturdy, and will not get ramp rash quickly due to the strength of the material and construction. It fits in its niche among many other various pieces of luggage that I use for both auto and plane travel.
Perfect carry-on luggage and a great price. At least as good as similar luggage costing 3-4 times as much.Sturdy, and even has a garment sleave in case you are traveling with a suit. Has plenty of side pockets. Is sturdy and durable and as big as it can be while still being carry-on size. The description is accurate. My favorite part was the price....
Just purchased this upright. I was tired of purchasing luggage that would literally fall apart after only a few flights, so I opted for something more sturdy this time. I was looking for any luggage made of ballistic nylon and this is the most reasonable luggage I could found. The fabric feels very durable. it has plenty of room for week. The only slight issue I have is that it's a little heavier than I'd like it to be, but as long as it's durable, I think it's alright.
I am very satisfied with the luggage. It can hold more than I thought and works well as a carry-on. The only thing I noticed is that it tends to tip over occasionally but I think it might be because I put too much in the upper compartment. It is very durable and easy to roll.
