Let me start with the bag interiors because these details are not shown on the website (I've since posted pictures). The interior of the red bag is bubble gum pink with white polka-dots. I have no idea who thought that was a good idea, but I wonder how many of the other bags share this interior color choice. My step-sister has the purple bag and says it's the same pink pattern. This pink fabric feels and looks cheap. It's thin and feels as if it will tear easily. The carbon bag has a gray interior with a whimsical polka-dot pattern. It feels sturdier as it isn't so thin. It also is more attractive to look at, but is still somewhat feminine due to the nature of the pattern. There are multiple storage pockets in the carbon bag, whereas the red bag has only one. I've posted pictures showing the bag interiors.
The exterior of these two bags is noticeably different. The red bag has a matte finish and is textured; whereas the carbon bag is smooth and glossy. I prefer the textured matte finish on the red bag because it won't show scuffs as easily. The weight of the ABS is drastically different with the carbon bag having a much thicker shell and little flexibility to it. The exterior of the red bag, on the other hand, is surprisingly thin which allows it to flex. We haven't used either bag on a flight yet, so I can't speak to their durability, but the carbon bag feels sturdier (and is heavier).
The two bags have different wheels. The red bag rolls more easily and is more fun to maneuver as a result. The wheels on the carbon bag have a gap between the wheel casing and the wheel itself. This leads me to think that these wheels may begin to wobble more quickly/easily. I've posted pictures of the wheels alongside the wheels of my higher-end carry-on suitcase. The red bag's wheels are more similar to this mid-upper tier bag's wheels, which perhaps explains the ease of motion of this bag.
The handle on the carbon bag wobbles less as it is supported by a snug fit in the bag frame. The telescoping handle on the red bag does wobble due to a gap between the rods and the bag's frame. The rods themselves appear identical in construction, so the differences here may not affect the longevity or durability of the bag.
Jan 2017 update: Many trips this year and still love this carry-on! No issues with overhead compartment. And while the handle has some wiggle, it has held up to heavy loads, including adding a heavy brief case with laptop - takes the weight well while on the roll and no sign of bend or break.
Other reviews have noted that it is not very durable. It has held up so far for me, but if/when it gives out I will DEFINITELY purchase another one...even if it only lasts a year, it would be worth it for me because of ease of travel. I travel a lot, and lightweight luggage is extremely important to me. The price was right here, and the free shipping of course made it worth it.
I've had this suitcase for almost a year now, and I have taken it all over the world: for a week in Italy, two weeks in Panama, and many, many shorter trips. It's still going strong. The inside pocket tore when I overpacked heels into it, but that really was my fault, not the suitcase. The frame has been extremely durable, and I do not go easy on my stuff. The body is a little scuffed, but otherwise it's in great shape. I have convinced all of my friends that they need this suitcase as well! :)
