Going to try this one out.
Pro's: Super light, Samsonite service is very good, Right size for my needs, Dragger and carry handles look sturdy, good lock, good/simple interior features.
Con's: No built in luggage tag,
Not sure about: Strength of the exterior shell, Durability of the wheels.
I worked for a major airline for 10 years and loaded a lot of bags. Always pack this kind of a bag full. Why? If it is empty and ends up under 20 other heavy bags in the bin, the case can crack. If its full, the contents will make it stronger, Soft side or fabric bags don't have this issue as much. If you have a broken carry handle on you bag when you check it and it weighs 50#, there is no way to grab it. It will get dropped and damaged. Also never check a bag with a busted wheel or dragger handle that won't latch in place. They will come loose in the conveyor systems and tear the bag apart. Never check a bag with broken zipper or latch. It will come open and all your stuff will be lost or returned to you in a garbage bag. In spite of all the BS you see on TV, most airline baggage handlers are as careful as they can be with your bag. Just never check a damaged bag.

2/17: Bag survived first international trip - no problems. Greece + cruise. Taking it skiing tomorrow. Bought a "X" strap for it. Don't check any bag unless you use a strap. This one ($8 prime) goes both ways "X". Excellent.
