    They are advertised as 21.5 x 14.5 x 8. They measure 22.3 x 15 x 10; empty. They won't fit in some overheads. Airlines are becoming more restrictive. I have a compact carry-on that fits fine, except for the top handle. Some overheads can't close past that handle. The entire body of these roller boards are as tall as that handle. They will not fit. Does anyone make a true carry-on?

    I love this bag. I traveled recently to Europe with my husband on business trip. It was a 9 night, two country, three city tour. I took a total of 5 flights and maneuvered the bag with ease. My husband does not check luggage when he travels for business so I had to get a good size carry on. I got everything I needed in this bag. I probably packed 4 pairs of pants, 6 base t-shirts, 3 sweaters, two pairs of shoes, pajamas and other odds and ends. Because the bag is not a spinner it holds considerably more than bags that have the wheels completely underneath the bottom. Since that trip I traveled for a week to Glacier National Park. I brought a sport bag with my biking gear (helmet, shoes, hydration pack, ect) but everything else fit int this great bag for a week long trip.

    Got this to hold underwater camera gear when traveling for diving. Hard to find a carry-on upright that doesn't waste half of the depth on a bunch of extra pockets. While this one does have front pockets, they lay fairly flat. Used it on a recent trip to Bonaire on two Delta flights. Was just able to fit it into the left side of the smaller Boeing plane that has three seats on one side and two on the other.

    Held all the gear I needed for this trip with room to spare as only took one camera. With both cameras, I end up with about 35 lbs of gear ( a lot for a carry on but I won't check this stuff). Case itself seems plenty sturdy and stands up well on it's own. Would be nice if it had a buckle to piggy-back it on a larger case.

    Weak point seems to be the telescoping handle. While it holds up and the second, longer extension is nice, it is a bit wobbly and I fear it will fail long before the bag itself has problems. If so, I may re-engineer the handle and send a new design back to Samsonite so they can improve their design.

    Time will tell if this hold up for the long haul and if I have any premature failures, I will update here accordingly.

    This the perfect size bag for me. It has about three trips so far each of a week each, 2 car trips and one air travel. It can be used as a carry on but I usually check it when I fly. The expandable portion of the bag is very generous and appears sturdy, much more so than my last bag. I like the wheels, they are larger and have rubber on them instead of being solid plastic. This may be vanity, but I hated pulling my old bag across hard floors as it made such a racket! Bag is well balanced with handle extended. I typically extend the handle and then slip my laptop briefcase on it. My old bags always fell over but this bag does not. Does not sound " major" but one of those really annoying things when your bag is falling over when in line at the airport etc. A little bulkier than some in this class but for me I prefer that as I can pack for a whole week and not have space issues. Plus's are size & expandability, Good Wheels, Heavy Duty Zippers, good balance with handle extended, durable heavy fabric. Only time will tell but I expect this bag to last many years.

    This carry-on suitcase worked great for my recent trip! The construction of the suitcase is very good; zippers are well sewn and the upright handle is sturdy too. Like many carry-on suitcases, this bag does measure 22" tall (bottom of wheel to the top of the bag), but it fit perfect in the overhead bin on a MD-90.

    Awesome, large, and barely makes it as a carry-on. :)

    This is the largest carry-on that you can find. The color is a very nice burgundy red, but the back side is black, and I missed it on the luggage belt once because I was looking for my red suitcase. There is a nice, clear, plastic zippered toiletry section for easy organization and protection if there is a spill. I have used this for a one-week trip. The wheels are great and can be used on rough pavement.

    Simply put, the handle broke after 5 weeks of use. I fly weekly as a business traveler on regional jets, so it was gate checked a grand total of 10 times. Poorly built bag to break that easily.
