I can't even imagine how big the "large" version of this bag might be! I was able to fit two weeks worth of socks, underwear and t-shirts along with 10 long sleeve shirts, four pairs of pants, a skirt, a dress, a fleece, a sweater and three pairs of shoes. All clocking in at well under the 50lb lim...

I bought this for a recent month-long trip to Europe and it was exactly what I wanted. The small size was more than enough room and I had no problem with going over in weight. The separate compartments made packing really easy. I didn't have a problem with the bag tipping over when standing on end since the bottom end has extra reinforcement --as long as you pack heavier items at this end, you'll be fine. The compression straps and double handles on the top might be the best thing about this bag, although I'm also pretty pleased with the pattern (LaGrande). Like other reviewers stated, there is a little bit of a chemically odor at first, but I let it air out for a couple days before my trip and had no problem.

I bought the small split roller in Juno. I chose it because I thought it would be easy to spot on the carousel (which it is), but I am very pleased with the color. The web photo is inaccurate, mine is more overall olive green in tone and I got several compliments on it. I took this on a two-week trip and it packed light with mostly clothes and grooming items, probably three-quarters full, just under 40 lbs. For the trip home I packed this baby to its fullest capacity by adding a small toolkit, several collectable glassware pieces, and random [...] I inevitably buy when away from home. Everything stored well, all the compartments kept everything neat and made unpacking a snap. It weighed in at over 65 pounds but I was expecting that. To call this small is amusing to me, the large must be gigantic. Regardless, it rolled well even while heavy, has tons of handles and straps. Very thoughtful design, I love it.

I was very happy when I received this suitcase. It was so light-weight, which meant I could sneak in another item or two and still be under the weight limit. Then I opened the plastic bag it came in and I literally almost passed out. The chemicals smell was very strong and it gave me a bad headache. I then let it air out in the room for about a day but it still gave me a headache when I went into the room. So I let it air out outside for 4 days in our sunny, breezy New Mexico weather. The chemical smell was still pervasive. I now have it wrapped up with heavy-duty odor absorbers both inside and outside the bag. This is day 5 of that treatment. If this doesn't work, I will sadly have to return the suitcase. I love the color and organizational pockets and its weight, but I don't want my clothes to smell like the suitcase. Pity the poor workers who are around these chemicals to assemble the suitcase! I will raise my rating on this if the odor has dissipated when I next check, but it shouldn't be necessary to go through all this to be able to use the suitcase.

First of all, I think this suitcase when full weighed less than my old suitcase did empty. Loved the organization, made it easy to locate things on a long trip. Altogether very user-friendly and a great piece to travel with.
