Many of the reviews of this suitcase were honest that they hadn't given the suitcase a true "road test." I figured the specs were what I wanted and gave it a try. NOT SO GOOD! My trip information is below so you can judge whether this review applies to you but first the Main issues: 1) size - No domestic carrier allowed it as carry-on though I even left the "carry-on size" tag on the front. It technically could squish to fit in some of the size-test bins but its multiple front pockets and "expandable" nature and plastic wheels make it look too big to fit. One look at my suitcase and the people at the desk pulled out the baggage tags-every time. I did manage to get it into the business class cabins. 2) wheels - the wheels got stuck everytime we would change surface type (think escalator to main airport floor). the wheels occasionally caught and stopped rolling-yup the stuff you don't know until you've actually used the wheels for more than 100 feet-all the bad stuff happened. I'm an experienced traveler with various luggage experience. This trip I was traveling across the country and then on an international flight. I flew both domestic and international carriers, both economy and business class. I walked in 5 different airports between terminals and in two cities from bus stations to hotels. Unless flying only on business/first class, on International airlines and taking cabs from door to door DON'T BUY THIS SUITCASE!
