Quality shows!! Great capacity. Complies with the airlines size for allowable cabin luggage. A side handle may have helped, but I am not sure. Bought a second one for my wife and we can connect with other flights without having to leaveve our luggage. Capacity for a full 7-8 days trips including a formal three piece suite inside the luggage. Sturdy and compact.
I was a little surprised at how small it was when I received it. However, I have not a problem with fitting everything I need for a trip. The construction and style is incredible. I would highly recommend this bag for weekend trips.
