over 100K miles and still going strong

Reviewed by TrialSize from NY on Friday, May 9, 2014
My job requires me to travel abroad several times a year and I needed something durable and carry on (hate waiting for bags). A friend had a similar bag in a larger version and really liked it so I went for it.

Pro- If you do have to check your bag, you can definitely find it in the luggage check.
- the dual compartments make it really easy to organize. It also allows you to sandwich more delicate items between the two compartments
- the luggage is really durable, the outer fabric still doesn't show any wear after a ton of miles.

Con- the telescope handle feels flimsy. It's never failed on me and doesn't look like it will, but I'm always careful when I expand it
- outer fabric is not waterproof/resistant (Ok, this is really *my* issue I never checked before I bought). This may not be an issue for some and I didn't think it was for me until I had to check my bag in Frankfurt. In the rain they were loading the bags and I thought nothing of it until I got my bag and realized that the bag got wet almost damaging Christmas gifts. Once again, my issue, but if you have any important papers, etc and if there is even the slightest chance you might have to check in (and they might load in the rain), just wrap your items up.

I would buy this bag again and I hope in the future they provide a stronger telescoping handle.
