Top critical review
Good, almost great
on June 23, 2015
I've had this cart for probably over 15 years, using it for many artist trade shows and hauling bags and wide portfolios in airports. It's sturdy and well-made but has some design flaws.
As some other reviewers stated it's not wide enough and if you have say, 30 lbs of wider luggage and go down a suddenly uneven area on a ramp or over an uneven raise in concrete the cart will tip over in a circle-ish manner and torque your wrist. If I manufactured this cart I'd make it so the wheels could be extended 1 or 2 inches more on each side, and then slid back in again. A way to deal with this flaw more or less is to go over uneven surfaces toting the cart behind you with both hands.
It's also not made for taller people with longer legs, my feet sometimes jam under it while walking and it tips it over. I'm 6' 2" tall which is not all that tall, and a cart should telescope at least beyond 42" to work well for me, this one is at 41".
It's also designed to stay upright by a metal piece jamming against another metal piece, and they wear down. My cart won't stand up straight anymore and falls over, but it took about 9 years before this started to happen. Still, it should be redesigned so it locks in place with another easily release-able system. Maybe they've redesigned it since then, I can't tell from the mediocre pictures they have on their site (Remin).
Lastly, I noticed Samsonite has cancer-causing warnings on their carts now, something California doesn't like must be in the plastic (and probably the handle you touch). I wrote to about this and they never answered, so I don't trust that this one is clean.
