Light, Easy To Handle, But Still Only 22 Inches Tall
on June 10, 2012
After a tragic plumbing disaster, we had to throw out all our suitcases. When we finally scraped together enough money to buy new suitcases (plumbers are EXPENSIVE), we did a fair amount of research before buying.
This suitcase came highly recommended, and my husband got it about a week before leaving on a four day trip. Mr. Henchperson is both tall and broad, so the people who claim that they can fit a week's worth of clothes in this bag must be quite small indeed. He got everything for his four day trip into the bag and didn't have to expand it, but it was a very tight fit.
The bag was light and easy to maneuver and the nice thing about the green is that it stands out from the 9,000 black bags that get dumped onto the carousel after the flight.
If you're a smallish woman and not packing more than one pair of shoes, this bag might handle enough clothes to see you through a work week. Anyone else is going to have to get a bigger bag. This isn't a complaint, just a statement of fact. The fold-out section for packing suitcoats and shirts can be unzipped and there would be more space in the bag without it, but it's hard to pack men's dress shirts in a way that doesn't hopelessly wrinkle them without that fold-out section.
Not five stars, but a good, solid suitcase.
