It's OK, could be better, but is fine for casual use.
on January 29, 2014
I got a red one from clearance on the manufacturer's site for 75 bucks. At that price, it is acceptable, but I would not be as happy had I paid the full price. It's OK. The handle is long enough and the wheels work well, but the case is not as strong as I expected. It's very flexible, not as hard as I thought it would be. The two halves are joined together by a flexible bit of material rather than a true hinge. Not sure how long that would hold up under hard use, but OK for casual travel, I guess. The zipper has snagged a few times, but works well enough. A metal-rimmed closure and clasps would be much better and more rugged. It has plenty of room inside, though the interior finish was not of the quality I would expect, either, basically just some thin fabric over the plastic and a straps.
All in all, I expected more for the price these normally sell for. It's adequate, no more. Fine for my use which is light weekend travel. Considered three stars, but gave four primarily for capacity and good handle with 'spinner" wheels for rolling about and the fact that any "hard" style cases are getting harder to find these days.
