+ The thing is indestructible. I think this could fall out of the plane and your wine would be ok.
+ The bottle slots can easily hold even bigger 750ml bottles (e.g., Turley or Champagne).
+ Construction is very solid, no worries about the wheels falling off this.
+ There are 5 latches to keep the crate closed, and you can attach multiple locks.
- Its heavy. It weighs: 24lb empty, 37lb with 4 bottles, 49.5lb with 8 bottles, and 65lb full
- It doesn't look like normal luggage, which makes it more likely that security/customs will question what is in it.
- There are a few places where the bottom of the bottles can make direct contact with the plastic case sides (versus foam), but I think it is solid enough that it won't be an issue.
+ It looks like a normal suitcase--less likely to be questioned by security/customs.
+ It much lighter. 13.5lb empty, 27lb with four bottles 38.5 with 8 bottles, and 54lb full.
+ You can take out inserts and use it partially (or fully) as a regular suitcase.
- It will only fit standard size 750ml bottles. Larger bottles like Turley or Champagne will not fit without buying different inserts for about $50/ea, which also reduces the capacity of the case to 8 bottles.
- The build is much less solid. I have concerns about the wheels falling off. Also the sides flex somewhat because it is thinner plastic.
- It could be possible (though unlikely) for the bottles to dislodge from the foam and bounce around inside the suitcase if it was handled just right.
After contacting customer support and sending a picture of the crack right down the seam they deemed it not a warranty support and tried to blame the airline. Its right on the manufacturing seam. Horrible customer service and don't expect anything if you contact them.
As mentioned by others that fully loaded will put you over the standard 50lb airline allowance by 1 bottle. It has not allowed one broken bottle and everything is padded so well not sure one could break. However, after 6 months the exterior shell has already cracked and getting worse to about 4 inches and will need replacing soon.
Top international reviews
As as small improvement would only propose that int the future you would include together with the VinGardeValise, a set os instructions on how to register the product for warranty purposes. It was a bit difficult for me to retrieve the serial number.
