Bigger than described

Just initial impressions- haven't used it yet. Seems very well-built, with some handles reinforced by the buckled compression straps, and it's lighter than I anticipated. The wheels look to be field-replaceable, and the backpack straps are built more heavily than expected- but they use denser, more firmly molded pads inside that may turn out to be a bit uncomfortable with a light t shirt. The removable backpack has stiffening foam inside that makes it great as flight luggage, but also makes it a bit bulky on your back around town. Really like it, so I'm going to try and live with the fact that (mine) MEASURES CLOSE TO 24" TALL when standing on it's wheels. It can't be compressed down because of handle moldings. If you're determined to have no carry-on issues on any airline you may want to look elsewhere- but this is a very sweet piece of luggage.
