Wow, the reviews for this bag are all over the place. I have 3 of these bags, 32", 29", and 21"... I personally do like them a lot and are my only go to bags now. I have probably ten other suitcases that sit in the closet. Off course the main reason i use these bags is for the light weight. I travel once a month usually to many places all over the world. with multiple transfers. yes the bags aren't made of the heaviest duty material, or else they would be too heavy and defeats the purpose. I believe a certain amount of luck is involved whether the airline baggage handlers throw your bag down and break something. the frame of the bag is made of plastic tubing and i had one that broke, i just used gorilla glue and electric tape and voila, back in business. I am almost 60 and hate to carry heavy stuff. these bags are about 10 pounds lighter than the traditional suitcases for their equivalent size. Even if i don't fill it to 50lbs everytime, i do enjoy that they are lighter, my 21" is my carry on case and i love the lightweight... my previous bag i had a hard time lifting it to the overhead compartment.
All in all, i have at least travelled 10+ trip with each of the bag, yes a little wear on the canvas part and a very small snag here and there, but i do use my bags.
In my big 32" i put a split board for kiteboarding and 2 kites and the rest of my equipment, previously i had to use a long board bag and at times had to pay for the bag $100 each way, buying this bag had saved me a lot.
Again these are not the sturdiest bags out there nor the most glamorous but they work great and for me they have lasted, and depends what you want them for. Just make sure you shop for the lowest price.
good luck and safe travels.
