I just came back from a three-week trip around France for which I purchased this suitcase. I was a bit hesitant at first since I've only purchased Samonsite or Kenneth Cole suitcases in the last 10 years, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of construction of this suitcase. The 26" size is very convenient for a longer trip -- not too small, not too large. It does expand but not significantly, but enough to fit a few extra purchases. This was also my first spinner suitcase, and overall I think it's a great feature. Having four wheels let me roll the bag through tight spots like tiny European hotel elevators, between parked cars, and even in my hotel room. The only downside is that the wheels aren't inline skate types, so the rolling isn't as smooth as with my other suitcases, but the ligher weight and added maneuverability make up for that. Overall this is an excellent suitcase for the price, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The only reasons it didn't receive five stars overall was the non-inline wheels and that the exterior did look a tad scruffed up after my trip, which was a little disturbing since it was its very first adventure, but since it held over 30kg nicely (we bought many bottles of wine to bring home) and was banged around a lot, those are minor details.
Needed new luggage for two teen-age daughters and this 26" roller filled the bill. Four wheels for easy navigation through airports and very lightweight construction is exactly what we were looking to buy. The price was half of comparable luggage and since it's only use this 5-6 times a year, it is a terrific value. We have already purchased the 24" for ourselves. I also like the fact that it is light gray in color and easy to spot coming off the luggage conveyer at the terminal.
THE QUALITY OF THE SUITCASE AND WHEELS LOOKS GOOD. I HOPE I'LL BE ABLE TO FIT AS MUCH INTO THIS CASE AS I DID INTO MY OLD 26" CASE. ITS NOT AS TALL AS THE OLD ONE THAT TRAVELS FOR TWO WEEKS.
