I bought one of these carry-on bags for my husband (who liked it), then followed on with one for myself. Thus far, neither of us has checked his or her bag, so I cannot say how this suitcase will hold up in the hands of baggage handlers, but as a carry-on it's worked very well. Even with the outer pockets filled, it slides easily into an overhead bin. (We haven't used the expansion feature, so I don't know if it would fit as easily in its expanded form.) The handle extends and withdraws with ease, & the wheels roll smoothly. There is a nice fabric lining, and the zippers work well. Several reviewers have commented about the malodorous interior of this suitcase. My husband's case arrived with no smell whatsoever, but mine smelled very, very bad. No problem: I sprayed the interior with Febreze, let it sit for a few minutes, then wiped up the excess liquid with a soft towel (the interior linings are non-absorbent). Presto: no smell whatsoever. One other small issue is the interior straps: they aren't very long, and while my moderately full suitcase zipped easily, the straps were too short to fasten, even fully extended. There's no denying that the price of this bag is unbeatable: the question outstanding is whether it can hold up under the hard knocks that checked bags must withstand. We bought the charcoal gray, which looks very smart.
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.
Once I received the carry-on at my house I was a bit skeptical as to how I would get all my shorts, t-shirts, under garmets, socks, suit, dress shirt and tie into a 21in case. However, I had 3 weeks to figure it out before my flight. Turns out that this case was more than enough to take everything I needed and then some. Could not have found a better carry-on at this price that carried my suit. By the way, when I arrived at my destination the suit was not wrinkled and neither was the dress shirt...amazing! This carry-on fits easily in the overhead compartments with no problem. The case is lightweight and easy to roll. I've got to say that I love this carry-on garmet bag!
