This case works great for the sales person on the go. Well made and durable. Lots of storage and still will hold a good stack of legal files. Rolls easy and case and roller is a great feature. I really like I can use the shoulder strap and the when'll roller at the same time. I just tuck the strap in the case. The leather seems to be thick and good quality.
I purchased this for the garment bag. But I don't know that I actually need it given the size of the bag. It is much larger than expected. However, I purposely purchased this bag because it reached the maximum dimension for a carryon on most carriers. The garment bag does zip out which is a good option. I used it once. It kept my clothes fine. I was using it more to ensure the dress for a wedding has some protection. I like it as a regular carryon without the garment bag. I have used it for two road trips and a flight on Southwest from DCA-STL-MCI with no problems. I was able to pack quite a bit without expanding it. I was concerned given how much it holds. It looked real fat and would not have fit in the sizer at the gate and ticket counter (but whose carryon actually does?) And when I put it in the overhead it seemed to stick out. But it fit in the overhead easily and there was no problem with the door closing. There was still some clearance, so I think you could use the expansion and be fine. It seems sturdy. This is my first hybrid bag. It's not as hard a case as I thought which is good in terms of having some give. I like that you can really pack two haves and keep clothes separated. There are two front pockets and one will easily hold a laptop. Empty, I was concerned about its weight, but it rolled easy through the airport and was light enough to lift. It has a bar on the bottom so that helps with lifting. And it never tipped over when standing upright. The material seems to be holding up, but I expect my luggage to take a beating. I am not expecting this to last for 20 years with regular use. Unless you are spending over $@#! for a carryon, I think quality wise there really is not a difference between this price point and a $!@# carry on, other than the name.
I was overjoyed to find a luggage set for my upcoming trip that seemed to be true green and not teal. I found it on sale and had a big coupon on top of that. I was warned at checkout that because of the sale the item would be non-returnable unless broken. It arrived quicker than I expected and I was so glad. But then I opened the case and sure enough, tags matching and codes too, but the darn things are not green. The color is more teal blue/green like all the other shades of luggage in this color scheme. Disappointed in that truly, but otherwise it is a good set.
Purchasing luggage without being able to see it and inspect it is risky. But this purchase exceeded my expectations. It proved to be as well constructed as it looked in the photographs. The other reviews written were a big help in my selecting this piece. I like it so much that I intend on buying the three piece set that is also for sale here. This bag rolls through an airport with ease. I fly SW often and the center aisle is not the widest but this bag rolls through with ease and plenty of clearance. When you put this bag in the overhead compartment be sure to have the handle end going in first. It fitls perfectly that way. I am completely satisfied with this purchase.
