I am impressed with the smooth functioning of the wheel and how the weight is carried on the wheels and not pulling on my arm as I pull the suitcase. This was even more impressive when attached my heavy carry-on (a 20" suitcase at close to 30lb in addition to the 46lb of the 26" suitcase) and the package was still easy to pull and stayed easy to steer and turn (ok, it is kind of chunky --> but it wasn't heavy on me).
I used the expansion joint coming home and it was a significant increase in volume. The amazing balance of the suitcase with a piggyback worked with and without the expansion joint.
In the past I have found 2 suitcases as a unit to be too heavy for me. Not with this one! The hanger for the 2nd suitcase is included as well as a combination lock.
When I returned from the trip, the store exchanged the item for me. The next trip I took was in March. Non-stop flight again, this time to Portland OR. Same problem. Only this time, I did have belongings in the pocket. I don't know how, but the belongings managed to stay in the pocket, only just barely. This was not demanding travel, by any means. A single trip on a plane should not result in this sort of problem.
I have subsequently learned that this is apparently a purposeful design by this company. They want the pulls to break away, rather than causing more damage to the bag. Well, I have never had this sort of problem on a suitcase, including cheap stuff bought at the local outlet stores. If I cannot trust the zippers on a suitcase, I can't use the suitcase. I won't risk putting something in a bag that is designed to break open at the slightest provocation.
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!)
