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.
