So I decided to order the Crew 8 since my handle was broken on the Crew 5 and I was awaiting a replacement handle. Every Travelpro bag I've upgraded to has been a continual process of improvement with the new bag being nicer than the previous in layout and features. Unfortunately this was not the case with the Crew 8. I am a professional traveler and pack very efficiently into a 22' bag. I can go on a 10 day trip with the contents, no problem. The Crew 8 has only 2 external zippered compartments while the Crew 5 had 4. If you like to have access to some items without having to open the bag and rifle through the contents then the Crew 8 is a downgrade from the Crew 5. The Crew 8 looks good from the outside but the inside is very basic. It's almost as if Travelpro took an off-the-shelf bag available from China and put their badge on it. I basically pack a similar version of the same contents into my bag for each trip. I tried to get the same contents I routinely pack into my Crew 5 into the Crew 8 and it was very difficult. There is no carrier for toiletries and other misc. items like in the Crew 5. There is no compartment on the inside of the lid (just a simple zippered net) where I would put t-shirts, socks, pants, etc. Funny thing is, after I had the Crew 8 packed it looked bloated and stuffed compared to having the same items in the Crew 5. The Crew 5 was a well thought out, functional bag for the professional traveler. The Crew 8 in my opinion is a bag to take when you can pack lightly for a long weekend at best.
I bought this bag before I came to this realization, and have been disappointed ever since. I hate the design of this bag. While it is light, it is much too flimsy to any kind of heavy duty use. Travelpro included a relatively cheap, but pretty design on the attachment strap and the short handle, both of which are sure to break with significant use. They've also rotated the axis of the long handle so as to make it harder to slide an extra bag over them. The front pockets are designed for appearance instead of utility, and so the zippers have a funny looking "U" shape and the pockets actually overlap, while being too thin to really hold anything. The nylon is a thin weave designed to have a nice "shine" instead of being resistant to damage.
I later purchased a Travelpro FlightCrew4 22" bag from an online store that caters to pilots and flight crew. What a bag! Nice sturdy ABS frame, real inline skating wheels, heavy duty handles with the axis in the correct direction, well-laid out pockets, and heavy duty nylon -- and $40 cheaper! The only problem is that it is a bit larger than Travelpro claims. So, now I use the 20" instead.
I also own a Kirkland 22" suiter (available only at Costco), which is better than this one and only $99.00.
So, do yourself a favor: Skip anything in the Crew8 series (or any of Travelpro's consumer lines) and buy the FlightCrew4 from an online retailer or get the 22" Kirkland at Costco.
On my most recent trip the retractable handle stopped retracting. I could manually press the pins on the sides of the handle to push it down, but getting it up was another matter. I ended up having to carry my bag instead of roll it.
I called TravelPro and they don't have a repair person in the area (Austin). However, they offered to send a replacement handle and promised that it is easy to swap out.
Unfortunately this isn't he only problem with this TravelPro:
1. Suit sleeve is worthless. TravelPro is really proud of its patented suit sleeve that's supposed to keep stuff from wrinkling. But my clothes always arrive more wrinkled than with my previous suitcase.
2. Front pockets too deep - this suitcase needs a shallow front pocket for storing things for easy access. Instead, it has two deep pockets -- meaning you have to fish around for things like your boarding pass.
3. Handle length - the handle has two stopping lengths. That's nice, except the first one is too short for me and the second is too long. I'm about 5'10".
To be fair, there are a couple nifty things about this bag.
1. Wheels - nice roller wheels that glide well.
2. Water bottle holder - it's gimmicky, but really handy. The suitcase has a pocket on the side to hold your water bottle. It makes the bag wide so you can't roll it on to the plane with the water bottle in it, but it's good for carrying your water to the gate.

Bag is ideal size. I used mine regularly (2-4 trips monthly). Never checked bag and treated it carefully as carry-on only.Read more
