We did not even get t o use this suitcase. My daughter pulled it over to where she was sitting to pack it and all of the stitching along the bottom split!! It was the night before our vacation so we had to dig out an old suitcase. I did my homework before purchasing this particular suitcase, read all of the other reviews and thought it looked like a good deal. Now I'll be stuck with returning it and paying postage. Don't waste your money on this one, buy the Olympia brand instead.
