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!
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.
