I wanted and needed a 29" wheeled lightweight piece of luggage for a trip to Germany this spring. After much researching, I found this particular brand on Overstock. Between the price and its' features, it cannot be beat. The dark navy color is great and distinguishes it from all the black luggage out there especially on a baggage claim belt. I am packed, under the weight limit and ready to go!
I'd been looking for a suitcase into which I could place my Lendrum DT spinning wheel. It folds in half for travel, but is too big for an overhead bin. So I needed a suitcase which could withstand reasonable pounding without damaging the wheel. The previous gold-standard was a Samsonite Oyster that's no longer available (except at thrift shops or the like), so I began searching for an alternative, and chose this Traveler's Choice 28-inch upright. It felt flimsy, as do all these new lightweight suitcases, but with the addition of some mattress foam cut to fit and more padding around my wheel, it made the trip cross country twice without damage. I did invest in a suitcase belt as this suitcase closure is just a zipper (and I wanted the thing to remain closed, even if it "popped" open in handling). Worked great, and held not only my Lendrum, but its lazy kate, extra bobbins, and a whoooole bunch of fiber. :)
I was hesitant in purchasing a product through overstock.com but I was pleasantly surprised. The Traveler's Choice toronto 29" suitcase was delivered in a reasonable time. The quality was excellent and the wheels move smoothly. The hard case should hold up well when travelling.
