I love this rollerboard
on January 11, 2011
I used to have a cheap 3-piece Wal-Mart set of luggage. Eventually the wheels broke, zipper pulls fell off, etc. I read several travel forums looking for brand recommendations, and Travelpro came up several times. This is an amazing piece of luggage. The wheels roll soooo smoothly and quietly, and overall it feels extremely well-made and durable. My girlfriend had to buy a new suitcase a few weeks after me, and had told me that she just didn't care that much about those things. I talked her into this same suitcase, and she loves it. We both admit that it's a really lame detail, but it's one of those things you don't realize you really appreciate until you have it.
I really like the fold out panels that pack your garment bag (my suit has come out wrinkle-free each time). It also comes with a thick plastic quart size zip bag for liquids. The size is right, I've been able to carry it on every time without any problem, even when the expansion zipper is unzipped. I don't feel like I need anything smaller, or anything bigger. Macy's had an exclusive on the moss color of this piece that looked really great, but it was $150. Gotta love amazon for saving me $50 off retail costs. Also, the hunter green color is subtle, but different enough to spot on a baggage carousel.
If I ever need another piece of luggage, I'm buying Travelpro.
