I bought another model of the same brand and had a problem of tearing and a handle that didn't work right. I like the duffel well enough to give this one a try...I like it's set up, and the uniqueness of its pattern...a bit easier to spot on the carousel than a plain black one.
I am posting this review as requested by Overstock.com's email petitons. It is important to note that I have yet to use this item in a real world situation so its longevity and durability I cannot adjudge at this juncture. If I had an opportunity to put some mileage on this item it may have recieved a 5 star rating. Bearing that fact in mind it appears to be one of the more substantive suitcases I have owned and seems considerably constructed whilst maintaining a lightweight sans contents. The unit being comprised of lightweight polycarbonate ABS, which creates a hardshell, is apt to withstand the abuses that most any airline baggage service may mete out. Its Achilles' heel may be, as mentioned by another reviewer, the zipper that binds the case and retains its contents. The zipper does appear steady and may withstand the Hockey Puck Treatment that a lot of lugguge endures, in my case only trial will tell. I will report back expeditiously if this piece fails my expectations, I am however filled with tempered optimism. Its interior is quite spacious, well designed and crafted, which makes it tempting to overload, I advise prudence in this regard. Another appealing feature is that the unit incorporates four wheels and not just two, a nice addition. Bearing in mind MY final cost of this piece it seems a good value and worth a gamble........as its Vegas bound or bust!!!!
