I travel about every other week and want a carryon that gives me the maximum volume I can without getting "gate challenged" in terms of size. This carry-on fits the bill. I've used it for 4 years now. I've had "22 inch" carryons that either cheated so much in size that I have had to check them (it does not happen a lot but does happen) OR other "22 inch" carryons that fit 20% less stuff than this one (e.g. most spinners). Its soft-sided giving you some give and making it easier to manage at security. Its components have been sturdy over the years, though the ball race in the wheels is beginning to sound a little off. It wears well, still looking good after years of abuse. It has one big cavity so I can fit things in how I like.

Some note that the zippers are hard to move in the corners. I found this problem went away after a few openings and closings.

The only negatives is that the expansion zipper does not give a lot of extra room when you need it outside an airline AND when really stuffed full it can be a little hard to zip.

BTW, in my experience the one place in the world you dont want to take 22" carryons is Australia. Qantas does not permit them and the luggage police will stop you about half the time.

There are a lot of things I liked about this bag - color, size, weight, appointments - hence the three stars..

I purchased it as a gift for my son and as he was packing it to take on his flight home, we noticed that one of the zippers was catching on the bag material behind it. Not a good sign when the bag starts to fail the first time out. I probably would have returned it if he did not absolutely have to use it immediately. Maybe this zipper thing won't turn out to be too much of a hassle but there it is, one more thing to deal with when packing for a trip. Who needs it?

6 months later: I am adding another star to this item because the zipper issue has resolved itself with continued use. My son flies often and on his recent trip home (using the bag as carry-on) he said that the zippers are now working much better than at first. He also likes that the color makes it easy to spot on the baggage carousel when he does need to check it. So, the only reason now that I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the zippers should have worked properly right off. It has turned out to be a handy and useful piece of luggage. If you buy it just give the zippers time to break in...

Very pleased with both product and transaction. I have had great results from High Sierra before, and this appears to be an improvement over that!

A few years ago, I bought this when it was relatively new and cost over $100. I personally thought that was rather pricey but the fact that it was only 6.8 lbs, I had to get it! I actually did my research and there wasn't anything out there that light and at the same time didn't sacrifice any practical or functional features. I have traveled with this both domestic and international flights as both carry on and check in. The material is very durable and I absolutely love it.. still do! Unfortunately, good things can come to an end after so much use sometimes and after many years later, the zipper at one of the corners has given way. It's time to get another one but this time I'm going to get the High Sierra Evolution because it's even lighter than this one! I would only have a "tipping" problem when filling it to the max by extending it but otherwise, it was fine! This is one solid product and I definitely would recommend!

Hmm, am not sure why this is entered as a dissapointed Purchaser. While I have some reservations about the suitcase, I do like it. Love the look of this bag. And the weight at 6.2 lbs I believe. However, this comes at a price as it is MUCH smaller then the 22-inch carry-on I have been using. I am not going to be able to pack nearly as much into this suitcase but as I wanted a lighter bag, I guess that is the trade-off. The zipper is very sticky around the corners but SEEMS to be loosing up a bit after a couple of uses - we'll see. I would also like to have an inside pocket on the bottom of the inside-miss those. It handles well and the pull out handle feels sturdy. Have been to the stores and looked at many many suitcases and for what I want, the lighter weight, this bag fits the bill and I'm very happy with the design.

This piece of luggage was an easy carry on: fitting nicely in the overhead bins on the plane. It was liteweight and I could pull it down the isle of the plane. It seems to be very well constructed and the wheels are secure and work well.I did not overfill it so that it was bulging and I was never questioned prior to boarding as to it being to large. I am very happy with this purchase and I hope to travel with this bag at my side on many trips

Update: 05/13/2014. Have had this bag for three years and have used it for many trips involving air travel. It still is a nice bag but consumers be ware. The screw holding the handle on became loose. I did not see this and one half of the handle was separated from the square tube. I was able to get home with it and will have to find a replacement screw to repair bag. I never thought to check screws prior to use so please learn from my experience. :)

It worked fine on an international flight, I checked it in and it survived .. It actually looks new, not a single scratch ....soo I think it works pretty good.
Has plenty of room,doesn't even look like a carry on .. But it is .( Try not to use the front compartments and you will be fine )

I read all the reviews before I bought it .. And I was a little concerned about the zippers .... But they worked fine , not a single problem with that.

Ordered this piece of luggage for our annual trip to Florida to replace some old wornout luggage. It arrived as expected and looked great. I filled it as full as possible using the expansion and then zipped it tighter. It fit on the overhead in the plane nicely and rolled well. Absolutely no complaints. This is a very well constructed piece. I may be ordering a second for my wife next year.

I finally had to get a new bag as my old one I had for a decade finally broke. I do a lot of traveling so it was a difficult choice finding a new bag. Since most of my current travels aren't longer than a week this is a perfect sized bag to take. It has a ton of pockets, great zippers, nice handle, and has stood up to some abuse for awhile now.
