I bought this suitcase because I was going abroad for 3 months and, since I didn't want to struggle with multiple pieces of luggage, I needed something in which I could fit all my stuff. I didn't want to spend too much money, but I wanted something that was good quality and would last. I finally settled on this one since Samsonite generally makes good quality luggage and the price as reasonable.
This bag really held up well after its first use and I have no doubt that I'll be able to make multiple trips with this. Yes, the yellow looks more like a lime green, but the bright color does make it easy to spot at the airport. The suitcase is very roomy inside and holds quite a bit of stuff. I also used space-saver bags for my clothes, and ended up having some room left over once I was done packing. I still went over the weight limit, though, but I was expecting that. I also like that the suitcase, on the inside of the opening flap, has a zippered completely enclosed area. I put some of my liquids there knowing that if they leaked the rest of my stuff wouldn't be affected.
The suitcase is quite bulky and can be difficult to lift onto trains, buses, etc. if it's heavy. I do like that it has 4 wheels, which makes maneuvering it easier.
I'm quite happy with this purchase and would recommend it to others.
