This was purchased as a rolling book bag and not for a suitcase. School hasn't started yet but the bag it replaced is not even up to the game compared to the new bag. When you buy something from a picture you take a gamble and this one turned out to be a royal flush. However after checking it out we will definetly be using it as a weekend getaway bag. I promise you it will never fly the friendly skys or unfriendly for that matter. It really was a good deal and much appreciated surprise. Thank you.
