A suitcase by any other name?
 from Somewhere, Idaho,  Jul 7, 2012

I have only used it once. It performed as a suitcase should (held the necessary items and rolled along). I liked the color and material. I did let it air out for a week before using as it did have a manufacturing/chemical smell to it, as mentioned in other reviews. The smell greatly decreased after a week. I didn't like the fact that Overstock advertised this as an Olympia Skyhawk bag when in fact it is an American Airlines suitcase and their name and insignia are on the front of the bag. If it stated this in the description, my bad, I missed it before purchase. Regardless this is suitcase and it did it's job. I have two issues with it structurally; 1) It rolls really well beside you, but seems to have a little difficulty when towed behind you. 2) The handle seems unstable when it is at its highest extension. This wasn't a problem for me, but if you are taller, you will notice the instability. The handle was also difficult to collapse from its highest extension. All-in-all it was a satisfactory bag. I was slightly disappointed after reading all the great reviews.

  • How accurate was the sizing? Accurate
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product was a little less that I expected, after reading all the great reviews. The handle is a little wobbly when it at it's highest extension.
  • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes, so far.
  • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
