The only feature I'm not wild about is the removable suit sleeve, but that's because I don't tend to carry any "fancy" clothing with me, and so I prefer extra space in the zippered mesh pocket on the inner "lid" of the suitcase, which my other Travelpro suitcases have. This is just a personal preference, so I can't blame Travelpro for it, and I'm sure some would love this suit sleeve.
I will say I've bought and returned one Travelpro (not this one!) because I didn't feel its quality was what I expected from Travelpro. Unfortunately, I don't remember which model it was, but I did want to point out that I don't believe all their models are as superior quality as the Crew 8 line.
One other thing. DON'T FORGET to remove the "piggyback strap" before handing your bag over to the airlines! We forgot, and as a result when we picked up our bag at the other end of our flight, the entire mechanism was ripped off the bag! This was our fault, not the fault of the airlines or Travelpro.
As other reviewers have said, this thing handles beautifully, even heavily packed, distributing the weight so your arm isn't aching, and rolling and turning well.
Though Travelpro is more expensive than some brands, I find them well worth the money. All Travelpro suitcases I've ever purchased are still being used and are still in very good shape, and some I've had for 10 years. I won't buy another brand, actually!
This Travelpro worked fine for almost a year. Then, in an elevator in Spain, the door opened, I pulled, and the handle fell off in my hand. I was lucky enough to find a roll of duct tape, and I put it together to the extent that I could pull it. And a 26" suitcase is HEAVY when it's packed. That was where Travelpro totally screwed the pooch...they put a handle on it that was only beefy enough for their 20" rollaboard. The difference in weight from 20-26" is exponential.
Long story short, I got it home, threw it in the garbage can, and bought a Samsonite Supra 6 Hybrid. This is the one with a solid shell bottom and four castering wheels. If this one breaks I'm going to get a Costco suitcase, and if it breaks I'll keep getting it replaced. But the real issue isn't getting a new one, or getting it fixed, it's that when it breaks and you aren't in the U.S. or with access to a luggage repair shop, you are in deep you-know-what!
I was an airline pilot for 25 years, and when the first Travelpros came out they were fabulous! Greatest invention ever, a rolling suitcase. It was well made, lasted forever, and withing a couple of years every pilot and flight attendant owned one. But now they're made in China. . . and that's the end of that story. (Of course so is the Samsonite! LOL! It's the plight of Americans these days, everything we buy is complete CHINESE JUNK!)
We recently took a trip by airline to NYC and Canada and the wife and I haven't flown since all the hoopla about baggage fees started. We reviewed the rules and then weighed our old luggage and found it to be very heavy which either causes you to take less stuff or pay outrageous over-weight fees. We decided to make the switch and buy new, super-light luggage. We spent days pouring over the brands, features, weights, and customer reviews. We settled on Travelpro. From there we decided on Crew 8 because it is last year's model of this popular style and that greatly reduced the cost. We had to do some searching to find all the pieces we wanted but were able to find most of them on Amazon. We ordered them and got them in a very timely manner. I always order from Amazon using the "Super Saver" shipping and it has NEVER taken the 6-8 days they estimate. I have always gotten my merchandise in 3-5 days. Keep up the good work Amazon.
As to the luggage, it was exactly what we expected. It has great features and we love the color because everyone doesn't have Spruce colored luggage, so it was easy to spot on the baggage carousel. Every piece has a suiter feature that can be used or removed if you don't need it on a particular trip. We used the 26" Expandable Suiter and were able to pack all the clothes we ever thought we would need on the 11 day trip and could barely zip up the suitcase. However when we weighed it, it still only weighed 42 pounds, 8 pounds under the airline maximum. The handles and wheels are superior and worked flawlessly. After all the tossing around in the belly of the airplane, we couldn't find a scratch on any piece.
I highly recommend Travelpro Crew luggage to anyone who wants a quality, super lightweight product to travel with.
