This upright luggage is made from lightweight polycarbonate ABS for added durability. The convenient spinner wheels and internal push-button aluminum handle system make the carry-on easily portable....more
I travel for a living and was constantly buying a new bag every 3-4 months. I got the idea for a hardside by watching another traveler pull one of the luggage carousel. Because I was used to buying a new bag quarterly, I was hesitant to spend more than $100.00 on a hardside so this was a good "trial run" for a hardside. So far I have taken it with me on five trips and it is holding up great. It does not show "handling wear" that you see after regular loading. The wheels work great and make it real easy to move through airports, hotel parking lots, etc.... I am able to put my laptop case on top of the unit and walk with it beside me, which is much easier on the back (and Feet) than dragging it behind me. I am over 6' tall and the handle is long enough for me. That has been an issue in the past.
When I first unpacked the case from the box and opened it I was a little alarmed on how small the inside appeared. I was pleased though how much it holds. I am able to pack 3-5 days of clothes comfortably. One side has an enclosed zipper compartment so I am able to neatly fold dress pants and shirts and they are held securely.
So far I am very pleased with this suitcase and it is holding up better than any case I have previously purchased. This unit has convinced me that hardside cases are the way to go if you are a frequent, casual , or occasional traveler.
The only thing I might have changed on this unit would be an integrated tag holder and perhaps a more durable zipper, although the zipper still works great, I think down the road it might be the first thing to be a problem.
The worst piece of luggage I've ever owned. I travel constantly for work and was completely diappointed in this product, what junk! It cracked in several places after my second trip and is now completely useless. When I complained to Overstock.com I was told to take my complaint to the manufacturer Traveler's Choice. They have no phone number and the return/replace policy is like jumping through hoops what a horrible experience. In the end I gave up (like I'm sure they wanted) and threw the luggage in the trash. I will NEVER buy from Traveler's Choice again I can't believe the lack of customer service, I should have expected it after using thier product. Save yourself time money and headache and spend a littler more and buy a quality product.
My husband used this hardcase luggage for his trip, and he loved it. He had to check this luggage, becuse of its size. He was surprised how well this luggge held up. I think this luggage is wonderful...everybody asked him if he got that from Europe. Its style is fabulous and it really can hold lots of stuff. My husband said it was very easy for him to locate the luggage in a crowded airport as well!!!!!
The iMac made the trip and so did the suitcase in good condition. I surrounded part of the screen with
part of the styrofoam given in the original iMac case then surrounded it with heavy clothes and some bubble wrap.
I got this for this hardshell on purpose but was able to take a ton of clothes with it too. Good product so far and even rolled
easily. It suffered no damage from the airline.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
from Europe now Colorado then.,

I bought this suitcase for an upcoming trip, and as a replacement for aging and damaged (Thanks airlines) luggage. Since I have yet to use the product, I can't tell you how it holds up, but it looks great. I like the inside design of the bag with one side being your normal bag, with straps to keep your clothing in place. The other side is enclosed with a zipper. This bag appears to be able to carry a lot of items (souvenirs people). I also like the fact that it arrived with a TSA approved lock at no extra cost. I was going to order one later, but now there is no need. I think I am going to love this bag.
I'd been looking for a suitcase into which I could place my Lendrum DT spinning wheel. It folds in half for travel, but is too big for an overhead bin. So I needed a suitcase which could withstand reasonable pounding without damaging the wheel.
The previous gold-standard was a Samsonite Oyster that's no longer available (except at thrift shops or the like), so I began searching for an alternative, and chose this Traveler's Choice 28-inch upright.
It felt flimsy, as do all these new lightweight suitcases, but with the addition of some mattress foam cut to fit and more padding around my wheel, it made the trip cross country twice without damage.
I did invest in a suitcase belt as this suitcase closure is just a zipper (and I wanted the thing to remain closed, even if it "popped" open in handling). Worked great, and held not only my Lendrum, but its lazy kate, extra bobbins, and a whoooole bunch of fiber. :)
I travel for work and personal reasons and while this piece of luggage does need to be replaced every 12-18 months it works perfectly in the interim. It has four wheels so is very easy to maneuver and the hard case does its job. You have to be slightly patient with the luggage as the zipper pulls usually get ripped off on the first trip. This is my third piece of this luggage and two have been perfect (one came with defective wheels and I had to return it).
Do the measurements include wheels and handles? I see from the previous question that the handle is 14" high when extended and believe I am trying to find out the same thing that person was asking, but was not answered. Flight restrictions allow for 62 linear inches. This is the total height, width and length added together. From your product details it states 28" X 21" X 12" which would be 61.5 linear inches. But the airlines include the wheels and handles which could put it over the limit. So are those measurements listed the total size or just the size of the packing area of the suitcase?siobhan721 on Jun 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
