As this is our largest suitcase used in over 40 years of extensive travel, we had some initial concerns about overall weight and durability of it. When fully packed it was very heavy and if not for the young, strong back of my companion, it would have been too difficult to maneuver through Europe's train stations and systems or lift into car trunks. The four wheels did make moving this monster around relatively easy when on smooth, hard surfaced flooring. Though challenging, this "new" suitcase was treated as carefully as possible and we avoided dragging it up stairs and curbs, so that when we returned home, it looked like new. The one major disconcertating complaint we have is that when packed, the zipper closures were insufficient to keep the two halves of the case stable and they shifted continuously, though no damage to our belongings ensued. Overall, we are very happy with this purchase after one 15 day European trip and especially like the bright and attractive blue color as it is so easy to spot on the airports' luggage carousels.

This luggage was great for our trip from Boston to Taiwan, which was 20 hours in flight, and then from Taiwan to Japan, then Japan to Boston. It not only fitted my husband and half of our son's belongings, it arrived at our destinations without much scratch. Wheels worked very well-- in fact it was perfect if you have to wheel 2 pieces of luggage by yourself. You can have another luggage with the rollerblade wheels and this one with spinner wheels, and you can push this one ahead of you while dragging the other one behind you.
These suitcases have now completed their first round trip and performed exactly as I expected. Despite the abuse they received from baggage handlers, foul weather and my brother's dogs, they look nearly brand new. We were able to stuff 10 days of cold-weather clothes, several pairs of boots, Christmas gifts and other miscellaneous items into the rugged bags. The wheels had to traverse all kids of terrain at airports, homes, and hotels and never once gave us a problem.
If you are at all like me and are tired of buying "high end" soft-sided luggage only to have handles, wheels and zippers be broken by baggage handlers, then these bags are just right for you.

Needed a large hard side suitcase for a trip. While the price was certainly right, and the size is great, it's a very basic case with no real features. The inside panels are not separated by zippers or anything I've seen before. There is 1 divider that "clips" into place on one half of the inside, and there are 2 elastic holds on the other to hold some items in place. Other than that , there are no other features. The closure zipper is expandable but seems a bit too flexible. I guess I will have to see how long it holds up. It comes with a zipper lock, but it isn't TSA approved.
The suitcase arrived at the house quickly after placing my order. No external or internal damage visible. I love the bright gold color as it will be highly visible in the baggage claim area. I purchased this large bag for my daughter who will be traveling to Japan for a semester in Tokyo and she has a lot of clothes!!! We will see how it holds ip to international travel soon.
Purchased in October and used for the first time in December. The plastic divider that separates the top and the bottom of the suitcase is glued to the suitcase. It became separated after one use, so now all the items in the luggage just get mixed together in one large pile.
Purchased this for my granddaughter. She is going into her 3rd year of college. The first semester is going to London, England. So, like I said, I hope the suitcase can take the beating of the airline.
How accurate was the sizing? Correct size
