Light and Plentiful!
This carry-on is a perfect size for both domestic and international travelers. As carriers are being more and more stringent with carry-on rules, this international standard will pass any test, and thus will be perfect for you. I think there's plenty of interior space - I had two pairs of shoes, 6 button-down shirts, two pants, two swim shorts, two t-shirts, and 1 pair of shorts (at the very last minute, I even threw my cardigan in there so I didn't have too many things on me while going through security). I simply tucked the underwear, socks, and toiletry bag in the negative space to make use of the functionality. I'm not sure if the previous reviewer wasn't packing efficiently or if s/he was hoping to fit two weeks worth of clothes in this bag, but I found this bag to be perfect in terms of space.
One aspect that worries me is the zipper. Mind you, I haven't had any problems with it thus far and hope I don't, but there are times when zipping the bag too quickly, that I feel it might break. SO, just take your time if you want to make this piece last. Overall, very satisfied.
Great stylish suitcase
My husband & I purchased 2 of these. We both love the stylish sleek look, & 360 spinners! They truly are lightweight & we are both happy with the interior zippers & pockets!!! We look forward to using them on our upcoming travels!
This luggage is so cute and well-designed, but I am NOT a light enough packer for this. It's more of a weekender than carryon. Another inch or two in all directions would give more room for a longer trip, without a hit to the style. I'm still debating whether to keep it as an extra solid long weekend bag or return it in favor of something with bit more utility. Big is too big, small is too small--any mama bear luggage in the works? I love this one.
Just Received, Happy with Overall Product
This is a really well designed piece of luggage. Super light, very smooth wheels, great compartments. I haven't used it yet do am not sure about durability but love it otherwise.
A great size - big enough for a three or four day trip. Seems durable, too!
Worried about durability
I purchased one red and one blue suitcase for my husband and I and, though I agree they are stylish, I'm not going to keep them. Ordinarily, with clam shell style luggage, the hinges which connect the sides are heavy duty, reinforced hardware since they're tasked with holding the sides in alignment so, when the handle is lifted, there's no strain on the locks or zipper. This piece HAS NO HINGE. Or rather, there's a flimsy bit of polyvinyl (or something) stitched to either side of the clam shell loosely holding either side together and not at all keeping the sides in alignment. In fact, when you lift the handle (even with the bag empty) the side without the handle sags and twist the locks to the side. I can't imagine these wouldn't fall apart in transit. I imagine the lack of hardware was likely justified in an effort to keep the bag light. This might be fine for a smaller piece but for a checked bag it seem ludicrously poor functionality akin to using a leather hinge for a wood door. Maybe I received a couple of defective bags? It's hard for me to imagine this design passed any kind of performance review.
