Side note- if, like me, you are traveling many places with one small piece of luggage, I highly recommend getting the Amazon Basics 4 Piece Packing Cubes (I got mine on Prime Now) they all fit perfectly in the suitcase, and I was able to take them out at each stop and use them like drawers, so I didn't have to unpack everything each time. I did roll my clothes to pack in them.
Out of the 6 planes, I only had to check the suitcase once and that was due to weight rather than size. It always fit in the overhead compartments.
It's relatively sleek (at least compared to my last rolling carry-on) and durable.
- Looks: It looks good. Nice fabric, nothing special about the color but it is nicer than the super cheap thinly lined bags that you see everywhere. Otherwise, nothing special which is fine.
- Size: Not their fault, but this bag just barely makes it into the ever decreasing size of overhead bins. This is the largest carry on that you can get through security, but even then if you are flying economy, you will occasionally have trouble fitting it into an overhead bin. While it can be store wheels in or out, due to compressing cabin sizes, it frequently wants to go sideways. Again - not their fault. I bought it mainly for international biz/first class and I'm able to carry it on occasionally in coach, or gate check it which is at least better than checking it at check in counter.
Roominess: It's smaller than it looks inside. I don't know how TP managed to do this but it doesn't really have as much room as the same bag with same exterior dimensions that it replaced. I really prefer my older bag to this one. Can't fit as much. The two outer pouches are somewhat useless. Yes, you can fit some easy access flat items, but no additional storage is offered. There is a zip extension feature to the main section which is helpful, but it only expands on three sides so it creates a sort of triangular shape to the bag and makes it a little unbalanced. It adds a little bit of space but not much. I use the zip expansion to get everything in the bag but then ultimately end up compressing the contents and zipping everything up when I'm ready to move.
Usability: The pull handle is cheaper and lower quality than the prior versions of TP bags I've owned. It jitters and shakes and does not feel solid. Also, when the bag is fully loaded, it is very difficult, sometimes impossible to full expand the handle. You see the handle mechanism is almost fully exposed inside the bag, only covered by a thin piece of vinyl, and when contents press against it, the mechanism cannot move. You end up having to figure out push/pull tricks to get the handle to fully release when the bag is loaded. I noticed this issue within a week of when I bought the bag and was disappointed with TP service. While they were more than willing to help, the help consisted of giving me the name and number of a travel pro reseller in the area and asking them to deal with it. Makes sense - except when that reseller doesn't want to deal with or lacks resources to make a fix. That was the case here. And TP has no other support and would not accept an exchange or return. I could have returned through AMZN (under its policy) but kept the bag bc of hassle. The garment/suit section of the bag is very small. They were smart to reduce the pieces of equipment included for suits since so few people where them anymore, but what they leave you with is a section that is really only useful for a couple of shirts requiring folding or maybe a pair of pants/skirt. If I'm traveling with a full work outfit, I have backing sleeves that I use instead. Unfortunately there is no way to remove the garment section of the bag like older versions so if you don't use it, you lose tiny bit of space.
- Durability: The exterior faux fabric started fraying fabric within a few months. The fabric handle material frayed and even with trimming continues to always have some frayed fabric. The outer pouch has some pills and bumps that have developed in the fabric. Neither are deal stoppers, they just make the bag look beat up even though it has not been beaten up.
Overall, it's still better than most bags on the market, but TP comes with a premium price and is rarely discounted. TP prides itself on this premium quality and customer service but with this bag I don't feel like it came with either. It's still the one I use the most, but since then I've repaired the wheels on my older TP bag and quite frankly it looks and performs better. I use it less frequently than this reviewed bag bc I am concerned about the wheels coming off in the middle of a trip - given the difficulty in getting them replaced again.
We already have the 26" version of this suitcase and liked it so felt comfortable purchasing this 22" for my daughter. After 2 weekend trips she reported the zipper broken. I tried it and sure enough it only goes one way. Took it to the local authorized Travelpro repair center who advised "we can replace the zipper pull but not the zipper". WTF. It's 3 months old with a crappy zipper and you can't/won't fix it???
Very frustrated with Travelpro so I appealed to Amazon who agreed to refund the purchase. Never buying another Travelpro. They have a reputation for quality products and good customer service. Unfortunately my experience is the exact opposite.
