This suitcase is very cheaply made but you get what you pay for, and I wasn't expecting much for $**. However, the real problem with this suitcase is that it is saturated with a horrible overwhelming chemical stench. I aired it out for a week hoping it would dissipate, but it didn't lessen at all. Whenever I touched the bag, the stink ended up on my hands. I had to return the suitcase because it was totally unusable - there is no way I would put my clothing in there!
