I’ve owned Ssmsonite products for years and have always felt it was a name I could trust. That said, I was disappointed with this product. It was sturdy enough and survived a three week European trip intact. However, it was very difficult to maneuver. My wife and I each had one of these suitcases and found that they were difficult to keep moving in one direction. They kept veering off in random directions and required a real fight to keep them tracking along side us. I finally found that I had to pull the bag along behind me as I would with a conventional roller bag to keep moving comfortably forward which defeats the purpose of having a spinner roller bag. Our bags were each 50 lbs plus, but that should not cause these bags to be so difficult to maneuver. And when the surface was not smooth forget it. These bags were impossible to manage. Needless to say both my wife and I were very disappointed with our purchases.
