So, after trying his bag several times with my suit when I traveled, I pulled the trigger and bought my own. So far with 5 trips I have not been disappointed.
~ Despite what the top review suggests, I don't see anyway in which this is less durable or rugged than the FlightCrew4 models or its predecessor models. So far mine has only seen a few trips, so a full study of its durability is underway, but for now I am confident it will last. I haven't been babying it, nor do I plan to; I am happy to see it dirty and worn like my friend's.
~ I find the telescoping handle to be very well made. It feels sturdy and there is very little flex in the handle when fully extended. I also like that there are two heights because if you are tall like me, the extra handle extension makes rolling at a full walking pace easier. If you are shorter you can use the lower position.
~ I did find myself using the side and top fixed handles regularly when boarding the plane and shoving it into the over head compartments. You wont be able to roll it down the isle so this makes sense.
~ I like that the suit holder now uses velcro instead of using a zipper to attach it to the lid. I always found the zipper in the older bag to be more of a risk in long term durability.
~ the 22" size is just at the limit of what you can bring on board. I was able to fit a week's worth of clothes, a pair of dress shoes, and my suit in this bag once I expanded the main compartment. HOWEVER! note that if the airline you are flying is particularly rigid on its carry-on size limits, once expanded this bag might not pass the test and you could be forced to check it.
~ I find that the two front pockets are essentially useless outside of stashing papers or very thin items. Certainly, due to the lack of padding, they are not an appropriate place for a laptop. It really depends on how you travel, but I tend to keep anything small and paper-like (boarding pass, passport, reservation paperwork) on my person, not in the bag, so for me I don't see any need for the pockets but to collect clutter. Depending on your use, you might find them to be more workable.
~ Can anyone explain to me what the tiny pocket on the side is for??? I am adding that as a con because I have no idea what the heck I am supposed to use that little pocket for?
~ This is the case with every roller bag, but the telescoping handle mechanism actually takes up a fair bit of the internal storage space. Careful packing is required to take back some of that space and get the most bang for the buck.
~ Straight wheels... I prefer them usually because I find them to be more stable, but I have run into a few circumstances in tight security lines or while boarding where the spinner style wheels would be nice. That isn't truly a mark against this bag because there is a similar version offered by TravelPro with spinner wheels, but its something to keep in mind.
~ I found the straight shape of the handle to be somewhat awkward. There are two thin rubberized pads and it seems evident TravelPro made some attempt at shaping the handle for ergonomics. However, it wasn't working for me, I kept having to adjust my hand and find a new position to pull the bag along. It just didn't feel natural no matter how I tried. A z-shaped handle would be nice since the natural alignment of you hand is with the thumb forward, not to either side. Again, very few bags have this and its not a deal breaker for me as most the bags time is spend lying flat while I sleep on a plane.
Overall, I after my friends experience and now my own, I trust this Travel Pro 22" bag will last me many years and many miles. The few cons I have noticed are merely small nitpicking details which don't truly effect the usefulness of the bag. I have no problem recommending this bag with confidence to any other travelers looking for a quality carry-on bag.
The bag is still running strong. I haven't seen any signs of wear or damage after several more trips--some checked and some carry on. Also, my friend informed me the small side pocket is for a water bottle? Useless...
Another few months and another few trips. Most recently to Washington DC, Boston, and Las Vegas. All of which I was served well by this bag. I am very happy. In the end, the price of Travel Pro doesn't seem so bad when the bag continues to perform for me. Usually by down I have broken a zipper or ripped something, but my little suiter just keeps on trucking. Maybe I should say flying...
The second one is still in great shape, and my son tried to take it to college; now he has his own.
Each version has distinct small improvements. The suit holder for the latest Rollaboard fits Long/Tall suits, and that is an important improvement.
For durability and function enabling uncompromised heavy travel use, this is the only bag to get.
