Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2017
I was skeptical at first, but I like this case. I was looking for a replacement for an old Travelpro that, after many years of loyal service, it died. I could not find anything similar to the Travelpro. The current Travelpro models were not even close to the old one in terms of quality. So I am trying Samsonite instead. So far so good. The case is spacious, it rolls well, and seems solidly built. However, the zipper closers could be more robust. I would prefer a clasp to help take stress off the zippers, but that design does not exist. A strap or duck tape are alternative solutions. The problem with the strap is that it is fiddly so not sure TSA or similar will reattach it after a search. Tape is not viable as once cut TSA won't re-tape it.

**** Update: after six months of use the case is holding up well. I has done two domestic and two international flights. It has got scuffed, but not badly. I'm still a bit concerned about the zippers, but have abandoned using the strap. The case has also proven to be a great storage solution for clothes when not traveling.

Pros: I like the black color, the case plastic seems durable, rolls beautifully, excellent for storage.
Cons: Zippers are not that robust so I am concerned about the case splitting.
