My wife and I travel 150 days a year staying in at least 2 hotels a week. We've been using our current Traveler's Choice 21" bags for 3 years. Our similiar Traveler's Choice bags we used prior to these lasted 5 years and were still usable when we retired them. The bags are light and strong. The pull out handles are long and the wheels turn easily. The zippers have never broken. Getting the blue bags helps when finding your bags at the airport.
