Now the bag: The material on the outside and inside is very durable, stiff, but durable. I don't use the tie down straps inside, so I have them tucked underneath the inside lining and wrapped around the two support poles and are completely unseen. The handle is quite sturdy and I really like the ability to have it all the way up tall, or lock it a little shorter at waist high, etc. It IS one inch shorter than my usual Crew 4 rollaboard, but I don't notice the difference much. A previous review stated the inside mesh pocket is small and not gussetted, this is true.
In my opinion, the wheels are not good. As a flight attendant, we almost always switch our wheels out for a much higher quality inline skate wheel. This is easily done by unscrewing the wheel from the box/luggage from the inside, and then the actual wheel from the assembly. I have taken off one of the front and one of the back wheel joints from the bag, but cannot seem to figure out how to remove the actual wheel to replace it yet. That is my next step. These wheels are cheap plastic, they get caught on the metal dividers in the jetbridges, difficult to drag through the carpeted airports, stuck on curbs and sidewalk cracks, however, it DOES roll nicely if you are just on straight tile. They are just too small of a wheel and too hard of plastic.
I have not had a problem with it tipping over, but I also have not used the small hook and attempted to hang anything on the front. I use a lunchbag/tote that slips over the handle and rides on top. I think if you hung anything on the front, it would tip on you. I carried my iPad, magazines, apron, sweater, and papers all in the front pockets. It does help to pack heavy items inside the bag towards the back and bottom for weight and balance.
Folks, replace the wheels and pack light and it's an okay bag! If you want a fantastic rollaboard, look for the older Crew 3 or 4, they are made differently for us. :)
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is still difficult to push it through thin carpet, which many airports still have. Maybe TravelPro can change the finish on the wheels, or change the size of the wheels? Either way, this is not that big of a deal and it is MUCH better than the alternative. The wheels are sturdy, they can turn any direction, and they easily glide through most surfaces.
I would estimate that I can pack 1 week's worth of clothes at most, and that is traveling very light. I wish this bag was made in 22" but the wheels take it to that 22" carry-on maximum, so it would be impossible for a bigger bag to fit in overhead compartments.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and I think it was a good investment. My arms no longer hurt from lugging around a laptop bag and a 2-wheeled carry-on on long travel days. I get compliments on this luggage all the time, which speaks to how nice it is because people almost never say anything about your luggage. I was also very happy that I returned the titamium color and purchased the black one. The titanium colored bag is NOT EVEN CLOSE to the color that is on Amazon's image. I thought the titanium would be a dark, charcoal color, but when I received it it was much lighter gray. I didn't keep the lighter one because I travel too much and it would probably be visibly dirty after a few trips. If you are a frequent traveler I would also recommend purchasing the Crew 9 briefcase. It has many compartments, its very comfortable to carry, it has a strap in the back to attach to your luggage, and as I mentioned, it's checkpoint friendly.
The only thing I wish they would do is have a few different colors. Then my wife would want one. The only other issue i have with it is that when it's full, it does tend to tip as other uses have mentioned. So i'll modify that bottom piece some, but other than that, i can deal with that minor issue for quality.
