Six trips, one broken wheel
 from New York, NY,  Mar 20, 2010

I was hesistant to buy spinner luggage as I've had bad luck in the past with suitcases that had four wheels- in my experience, airline luggage handlers tend to demolish these types of bags far more quickly than those with just two wheels that are usually protected better because of the lack of swivel function. However, the reviews for this bag were generally good, so I purchased it. I have had the bag for three weeks and have made six nonstop, 1,000-mile flights with it. After the fifth flight, when I retrieved the bag from the luggage carousel, one of the front wheels was half-detached from the bag and the bag is now useless as it has to be dragged rather than rolled. The airline (Continental) of course refuses to take any responsibility for the damage. While this damage is really the fault of the airline, the fact remains that the wheels on this bag are not reinforced well enough to survive the ape-like handling of most bags that baggage handlers seem to delight in employing. Unless you plan to use this bag for ground transportation only, don't waste your money.
