I love, love, love this case. It is so stylish and perfectly functional to fit my lap top, tablet and files. The leather is top quality and it rolls so smoothly. I do mostly day travel but have overnight stays once or twice a month. This case allows me to carry my portable office with ease. I love that I can detach it from the wheels and carry it when needed. It's everything I hoped it would be and more.
It held up through 9 different airports, airlines and traveling on top of a Land Cruiser through out Central Africa. I never had any problem with it fitting in the overhead storage on all the different sizes of planes that I traveled on. It arrived back home with one small scratch on the outside of the case. All of my items inside of my luggage was in place and none of the items were damaged. I will buy more of this brand of luggage. The spinner wheels are priceless while traveling quickly through the major airport hubs and down the isles of the planes.
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my 6' 4" son. With his current carry on he had to bend over to wheel it. This bag is perfect. Since it sits upright, the handle is more than high enough to accommodate his height. It wheels smoothly. It can be tilted to operate like a regular 2 wheeled case as well. The zipper opens the top of the bag fully for great access to the interior. The outside pockets also have great access. He hasn't used it on the plane yet so I can't comment on the fit in the overhead bin. However, the dimensions indicate that it shouldn't be a problem. He loves it!
After 15 years with my almost indestructible Samsonite rolling laptop bag, I wanted something slimmer and lighter. That's what I got with this case, after reading countless reviews on it and other offerings. I was hard-pressed to find detailed descriptions of the layout of the bag, so here it is for those interested: the front pockets you see in the illustration are a bit misleading, but in a positive way. Both top pockets extend to the bottom of the bag and are well-gusseted, allowing storage for longer items. The top left pocket has an interior pocket about 3 inches across an 1 inch deep. the top right pocket has very shallow card slots from top to bottom. The bottom left pocket is wide but not deep. The bottom right pocket is also shallow in depth. The first main pocket has two file folder dividers in front which do not extend fully to the bottom of the bag. Behind them is the laptop sleeve, with a top that folds over and closes via velcro. This sleeve purports to be x-ray friendly for airport security checks (have not tried yet). There is only one more compartment, the bulk of which is taken up with handle storage. There are two pockets, one on either side of the handle, which I'm using for laptop power supply in one and wireless mouse and usb in the other. There is minimal remaining storage in this compartment, aft of the handle assembly. Also, the zippers here do not extend fully to the bottom of the bag, making access just a bit limited. Other notes: the handle extends easily and long enough to be comfortable for this 6-footer (same height as my Samsonite). The wheels are very smooth, but just a bit louder than the composite wheels on the Samsonite on pavement, though whisper quiet on carpet. The leather is of good quality. The carry handles work well, though I would prefer a single handle to the two leather handles provided (requires some groping to gather the handles, especially when the telescoping handle is extended - something you might run into when approaching a stairway in an airport. Finally, the zippers on the small, front compartments look a bit suspect to me. They don't have the substantial feel of the Samsonite bag. Also missing is an interior, zippered full-length compartment. I had one in the Samsonite in which I kept documents that required extra security. To sum up: I got what I asked for: a lighter, slimmer, easier to manage briefcase. I did find it a bit challenging to fit everything in that I had in the Samsonite, with its extra compartment. But, I'm enjoying having shed at least five pounds in weight, and the price was right as well...
