We ordered the orange and it is a great suitcase for carryon. The wheels are easy to roll and the suitcase is well made. I have other hard side pieces and do not check any of them, so I can't vouch for how it might scuff. But other than that, it is a great case and has been used on the plane so I can say it is carry on approved size.
I was looking for a carry on that was small enough so that I wouldn't get stopped at the gate and be asked to check my luggage, as has been the case with the carry on I have had. No worries here, it is quite a bit smaller than the one I have, but plenty spacious inside. Plus, it's really light weight, which was important since I will be dragging it all over Italy this summer. The burgundy is nice too. I'm really happy with this purchase.
I had one of these suite cases for more than 2 years and wanted to get a second one for my husband to use (needed to replace his old one). These are great!. Perfect carry on size, roll nicely through the airport with shoulder bag on top, and I love the fact they it does expand (even though it is a hard side) for when I "over buy" things to bring home on vacation. I have had to check these a few times as well and they have thus far taken all the abuse the airport bag handlers dish out with only minor scuffs here and there. Would certainly recommend. One thing different on this one I did notice is One side has a band that snaps together to hold your stuff on that side, the other side actually has a zippered cover that holds your items in snug where nothing can fling around. However the zippered side is set down from the top edge of the bag a bit so you actually loose about 1" or so of space to put stuff on this side inside the zipper. (My old one is not like this, the zippered cover is right at the top of the bag on this side). I usually use this space to lay sandals or such, but it would have been nice if they had the zippered closure closer to the top edge.
I haven't had new luggage in 11 years since I was an exchange student and I have struggled with purchasing new luggage because I never found just what I wanted. Or I bought it used it once and it broke! It was even harder to shop online, BUT... When these came in the mail yesterday I was blown away! The quality looks amazing, the hybrid style looks very durable! I was waiting to receive them to decide if I wanted a larger one to check as well and I was thrilled to order the 25" last night! I can't wait to use this luggage in my travels over the next few months, the plum is so sharp and my boyfriend loved his orange carry-on. It's great to have his and hers luggage in the same style, but different colors. Also the inside is so organized and I love the zippered mesh pockets! I will re-post if there are any issues in my travels, but right now I can't wait to get on a plane with these bags! :) I will say though in terms of price, I was surprise that the 25" cost the same as a carry on... We spent $240 on two carry on bags and a 25". We (as with many people) didn't need two large checked bags so buying the set for a slightly cheaper price didn't make sense. We needed two carry-on bags and one checked bag at least to match my carry-on, maybe another in the future to match his. I was surprised by the cost being the same, but am thrilled to own this luggage! Love the hybrid style and I'm glad I didn't buy a full hard-case suit case!
