Inspect closely after unpacking for loose wheels and threadless bolts.
on October 5, 2014
I would be very wary of the durability of this luggage, specifically the wheels. My wife received it as a gift and it arrived with two of the wheels off from the caster. On further inspection it appears that the manufacturer may have stripped the original threads and used threadless bolts hammered straight into the threads to hold the wheels in, and that failed in shipping (hasn't even been used once). If this is the case for other pieces of the same luggage, it is just a matter of time before one or more of your wheels fails. Further, it appears that each side of a caster is threaded in opposite directions. Looking at the other bolts confirms this as they have arrows stamped on them that face in opposite directions. I suspect that if these pieces are hand assembled it would be very very easy to accidentally mis-thread the bolts on the wrong sides and the threadless bolt is the fix. So, if you own this luggage already and are out of the return or warranty period for it, I would suggest torquing down those bolts after each trip and/or applying loc-tite or similar adhesive to prevent them from working their way loose. Just remember that the bolts will tighten in opposite directions when you re-assemble.
