I recently purchased this luggage for an overseas trip i have this summer to Europe. Luckily i was able to use it a lot sooner! This spring break i went to Wisconsin. DFW to Milwaukee. The middle sized piece of luggage took a beating and held up well. One of the corners was dented in. When i got to my destination, i opened it up and popped it out. Perfect! You could kind of tell it had been hit or scuffed there, but hey its luggage. Mine also went though one bag inspection by TSA. So far so good. Zippers are great and the wheels glide so easy. It is very easy to spot your luggage, mine is the silver, when they come off the baggage claim. There is a small zip pocket inside for personals or bath items. The top half inside is also zipped which is a great place for shirts since there lighter than jeans or slacks. Overall i was impressed. I read about 50 reviews on this and decided to take the plunge. Great decision! PS. Let them air out when you get them or put a bounce sheet inside. Smell a little wierd. Like plastic or something.
