The luggage was given as a gift and very well received. I ordered the distressed brown color, and it looked good. It is certainly more shiny than I would imagine for distressed leather, but time and wear will break it in. It's a great value for the money. Would recommend.
DISTRESSED NOT! I was leaving for Ecuador a few days after it arrived, so I had no time to return itI worked on distressing it myself ,a bit of a hassle but I got rid of the ugli shine and I like the result now. The picture shows the horrible shininess,so I guess I knew what I was in for.I used bad fume goo off.and a plastic floor scrubber.I like everything about it now.I watched TV while I hand buffed away the shine.Underneath,is a very nice leather.I guess I'm not happy unless I'm miserable.
I had this exact same suitcase for 4 or 5 years and it survived dozens of flights as a carry on and often ended up getting checked. The pull handle was sturdy, but it finally gave out last year. I bought another suitcase that didn't last a year before the handle broke. I noticed that this suitcase is still available and I ordered another. my old one was brown and this one is black, but it is the same suitcase with a few minor differences. The wheels are slightly different, but they seem to be an upgrade from the old design.
