5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed and easy to move
I have just completed my first international trip with this suitcase. I consider the 26" a good size for current weight limits (I am a dense packer and anything larger is difficult to keep at 50 lbs).
I am impressed with the smooth functioning of the wheel and how the weight is carried on the wheels and not pulling on my arm as I pull the suitcase. This was...

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the zippers
I purchased this bag last October before a week-long trip to Atlanta on business. After the non-stop flight, I arrived to find the front pocket zipper pull had pulled off. Fortunately, I had not packed anything in that compartment.
When I returned from the trip, the store exchanged the item for me. The next trip I took was in March. Non-stop flight again, this...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Travel Companion,
My husband bought a smaller version for his business travels and is very pleased with it. While shopping at Macy's before a trip to the east coast we saw it on what appeared to be a great sale and bought it. We usually look at Amazon first but hadn't planned the purchase. When we got home I logged onto Amazon and ordered it for $87.00 less and returned the original purchase to Macy's. It is made very well, rolls smoothly and I was able to pack tons of clothes and have no extra bags to carry-on. An excellent value at Amazon.com.
5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite suitcase,
I gave it 5 stars because it is easy to pack. Light weight, I can fit everythinf I need for my vacation in this suitcase without being over weight.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy,
This luggage arrived just as promised and is in excellent new condition. So far, it's held up exceptionally well and I'm pleased.
5.0 out of 5 stars elegant, durable,
I expect this one to last as long as my 22", which is turning out to be a fabulous bag, looks great, sturdy but light. I recommend this model, the Crew 8.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great suitcase great price.,
My wife and I had luggage left over from when we started college so after 8-10 years of College we decided to purchase new luggage. We decided on Travelpro after some research and have not been disappointed. My wife and I have flown with this numerous times, driven cross country, put the luggage through the ringer, and it has survived everything we have thrown at it. I noticed most reviews complained about the handle but this has not been an issue. It does feel a bit loose and sways side to side a but, but unless you are doing arm curls with a fully loaded suitcase you will be fine. A little common sense goes a long way. As a note we have gotten two other matching pieces of Travelpro luggage and have not been let down. Get it. You won't be sorry.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!,
Travelpro was recommended to me by a friend that travels quite a bit. After reading reviews, I decided to invest in it and I am very happy with the purchase. Good quality and sturdy. I'm sure it will last much longer than all the other cheaper brands.
5.0 out of 5 stars Travelpro Crew 8 26" purchased at Amazon,
Great suitcase. Has plenty of room. Laid out well. Well worth the money. Got it for my husband's birthday. He really likes it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Luggage,
Travelpro Crew 8 26 Inch Expandable Rollaboard Suiter
We recently took a trip by airline to NYC and Canada and the wife and I haven't flown since all the hoopla about baggage fees started. We reviewed the rules and then weighed our old luggage and found it to be very heavy which either causes you to take less stuff or pay outrageous over-weight fees. We decided to make the switch and buy new, super-light luggage. We spent days pouring over the brands, features, weights, and customer reviews. We settled on Travelpro. From there we decided on Crew 8 because it is last year's model of this popular style and that greatly reduced the cost. We had to do some searching to find all the pieces we wanted but were able to find most of them on Amazon. We ordered them and got them in a very timely manner. I always order from Amazon using the "Super Saver" shipping and it has NEVER taken the 6-8 days they estimate. I have always gotten my merchandise in 3-5 days. Keep up the good work Amazon.
As to the luggage, it was exactly what we expected. It has great features and we love the color because everyone doesn't have Spruce colored luggage, so it was easy to spot on the baggage carousel. Every piece has a suiter feature that can be used or removed if you don't need it on a particular trip. We used the 26" Expandable Suiter and were able to pack all the clothes we ever thought we would need on the 11 day trip and could barely zip up the suitcase. However when we weighed it, it still only weighed 42 pounds, 8 pounds under the airline maximum. The handles and wheels are superior and worked flawlessly. After all the tossing around in the belly of the airplane, we couldn't find a scratch on any piece.
I highly recommend Travelpro Crew luggage to anyone who wants a quality, super lightweight product to travel with.
5.0 out of 5 stars Travelpro Crew,
A handsome product easy to use customer service, too! I used the luggage traveling without any problems. Handling and functionality compares with other market suitcases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third choice's a charm...,
Received these bags (2) after two Am. Tourister tries (the 29" one well-exceeded the 62" limit and the 26" was only 24"). This Travelpro bag is a true 26" bag...will not exceed the maximum 62" mandated by the airlines, even when stuffed to capacity (60" tops). Fly business when I do so if that's your preferred cabin, fill it up...you'll be hard pressed to hit 70 lbs in this bag, unless you're packing a bowling ball or two with your stuff. Appears very well made, and the spruce color is a nice change. Clever little "secret pocket" in the "floor" of the bag...its zipper is quite inconspicuous so it would be very easy for anyone (except the buyer, of course) to overlook it. Plenty of room in interior and exterior side pockets, too. Nice suiter attachment...but completely detachable should you wish to travel without it. More than double the price of the Touristers but I think I got what I paid for...three week trip to Europe in a few so if all goes well with it, I'll update the review. Happy travels!
