Durable with flaws
 from Washington, DC,  Dec 22, 2010

The Travel Select Amsterdam Light Weight bag is a durable bag that I recently purchased to use for my flight home for Christmas vacation. It was the perfect size for about two weeks worth of clothes and Christmas presents (though I pack light almost always since I am used to just bringing carry-on luggage to avoid fees). While this bag does not count as carry-on, the depth and expandable feature of the bag make it great for checked luggage. Unfortunately I can't give this bag a high review or recommendation. After packing my bag, I tried to pull out the handle used for pulling the bag on its wheels. The handle refused to come out. My roommate and I both fiddled with it, and she even stated that she had the same kind of bag and it often got stuck. I was going to be late for my plane so I ended up pulling the bag by the regular handle (not comfortable or convenient) through the metro and the airport because I would have had to take out everything I had packed to fix it. When I arrived home, my dad took apart the entire handle to find the problem. In the end, the button was BROKEN. The inside contraption was cracked right in half. I don't understand how a company can send broken products like these out. Since it was a cheap buy and I need the bag for my return trip next week, my dad super glued the piece back together, but we'll see how that works. My dad was weary about buying online to begin with, so I convinced him to purchase this product because of the low price. However, our experience with the bag proved him right. Maybe buying in stores is a better bet to ensure quality.
