This is a 29" piece of luggage which is too large to use as a carry on. The luggage is very cheaply made and doubtful that it would stand up to being used as a check in piece of luggage at the airport. It is very light weight, which is good for toting around, but for my needs as a piece of check in luggage, I had to turn it down and return it. I purchased it because of its five star rating by others. If you are going to take this luggage to the airport, beware of its vulnerability. The item also arrived with several scratches on its surface. It was not packed well at all.
