We travel A LOT and since the airlines are not kind to bags we purchase new luggage every couple years. This one was purchased to replace my husbands after the wheel was broken off his last spinner while enroute home. He needed a large piece that would allow him to pack for 2 week trips and this was a perfect solution. It has a lot of space and spins very well and even though the description said black it was more of a slate grey so just enough to stand out in the sea of black suitcases at baggage claim. So far it's been on 2 trips and has held up well and we are glad we purchased this one.
