This carry on rollerboard is an attractive addition to any luggage collection, but it’s highly functional too. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of a high piece, like a Tumi, but it worked well for my two recent flights. For starters, the luggage is a legit 22 inches tall including wheels and handles. I’ve had other carry on rollerboards that were advertised as 21.5 inches, but that was without wheels, which means it won’t fit in the tester box for most airlines and you won’t be able to put it in the overhead. This Calvin Klein piece fits in the overhead for most major airlines.
Just because this CK isn’t high end doesn’t mean it isn’t loaded with features. The suitcase has an accordion expansion, and I really like that the expansion zipper is labeled with a red color, while the double zippers to open the suitcase are standard black. The double zippers snap into the suitcase shell and lock with the three digit built in combo lock that has a TSA key. Inside the suitcase is a large mesh zippered compartment on the left and a two zippered mesh compartments on the right. The mesh compartments are great for underwear and socks, but those mesh compartments hold in the larger clothes like pants and shirts that you pack in because the mesh compartments are suspended over the left and right packing areas with plastic buckles. The hard shell also helps keep things in place. All things considered, you can get a fair amount of laundry in the suitcase and organize it fairly well.
The suitcase isn’t perfect, though. For starters, the instructions for how to set the combination lock and release the zippers were inside the suitcase. It took me 10 minutes to figure out how to release the zippers and just open up the thing to get to the instructions (hint: you have to slide the key hole circle to the side to release zippers). Beyond that, whenever you get hard shell luggage you usually sacrifice having an outside zippered pocket for quick access to a hat or rain jacket. I didn’t realize how much I missed that outside pocket until it wasn’t available.
All that being said, I think if you’re looking for a mid range hard shell carry on rollerboard suitcase, this Calvin Klein model warrants serious consideration.
- I love the internal organization. Multiple zippered flaps and buckles that make sense. It's easy to find places to stuff toiletries, computers, clothes both dirty and clean, etc and to find ways to keep it all from sliding around inside.
- The wheels are awesome. Very smooth travel and in any direction
- The handle. Despite complaints from others and the "cheap" look of it, I found it very sturdy and easy to pop up and down
- Size: it is sized correctly to fit overhead compartments
- Weight: it's not heavy unloaded. That's a nice thing!
- I accidentally locked it and let me tell you right now the default was not 0-0-0 nor was it particularly easy to open. The default on mine had gotten changed somehow to 0-1-7. This took me about an hour to find out as I literally went through all the combinations and had to look up online how to slide the lock so I missed it the first time through. This wasn't a fun task while away from home with my stuff locked inside. Moral of this story: test the lock before you leave home....I'd not planned to use it. Personally I don't see how I could have changed it accidentally and if I did then the combo is way too easy to change. Both are bad.
- Scuffs and whatnot : as others mentioned it picks up scuffs and whatnot on it's shiny black surface very quickly.
- Materials look a bit flimsy: it's not clear to me that they are but it has kinda a cheap look to most of the materials.
Overall good - if you want a hard sider this isn't bad at all. Must admit the whole lock issue almost had me ready to destroy it to get it open. I told my coworkers that if they saw me carrying all my clothing in the hotel provided dry cleaning bag the next day then they'd know what happened.
CK with the hard exterior (vs SW with nylon ext) is a bit more rugged but also a bit heavier. If weight is the major consideration SG might be a better choice.
CKs lock is clever - the zippers clip into a locking mechanism with a combination. Elegant clean design
I like how the CK unzips mid-width instead of at the end like SG. You can pack different things in each half of the bag, rather than stacking stuff full depth. That's just personal preference.
CK comes with more internal compartments that serve as both storage pockets and separators. I mostly like this but would like it more if they could be zipped out when not in use.
The CK bag might be a bit better of a design overall, but the SG is a bit lighter (one of the lightest weight bags I've seen for it's size), and about 1/3 less expensive, so also a very good choice.
Both have a zipper to expand a couple extra inches which is a nice feature to make one bag capable of delivering 2 different volumes.
Both have the 4-spinner-wheel base, which is sort of nice for mobility, but compared to the older models with just 2 wheels that you have to tilt to pull, you wind up losing some storage capacity for a carryon. The wheels consume some of the height that used to be suitcase all the way to the ground.
