This review is from: American Tourister Luggage Splash Wheeled Boarding Bag (Apparel)
I wanted a 17" bag for carrying ipad, medicine, etc on upcoming cruise. This was an excellent size for me to handle. I'm 65 so can't handle the heavy bags like I used too! This one is big enough I can piggyback my other carry on computer bag on top and roll both to my airplane seat and also down hall on cruise ship without having to lug one without wheels. Review on solar rose color being more like purple was spot on but I just wanted a distinctive color. Review about handle being too short seems invalid since I'm 5'9" and it's almost too tall when fully extended. Suspect other person didn't get full extension when they reviewed it. I'm also fine with zipper across top of main section because of the stuff I'll be stuffing into that part of bag. Also loved side pocket which is plenty big for my manila folder of cruise documents, airline info, etc. Also loved 10 year warranty that comes with American Tourister luggage. Just a well made bag for my needs.
OK. I field tested this bag on 18 day cruise through Panama Canal Zone. Used it on Delta plane and commuter. I had to carry it sideways on Delta plane and checked it before boarding commuter plane. Really happy with this bag. It's light enough for me to easily put in overhead storage and side pocket was terrific for carrying flight/cruise documents, passport, and paperback reading book. I placed my wife's carry-on bag (no wheels) on top of my carry-on for rolling through airport as well as in line at cruise terminal while she carried my ipad case which was very light. She's probably going to get her one before we travel again. Great Bag!!
