This suitcase did not hold up under world travel conditions. I actually went through two suitcases in two trips. The first one broke when the aluminum internal frame was damaged during normal airline handling, bending the retracted handle such that it would no longer deploy. Since it was within 30 days, Amazon provided a replacement (great policy!).
The second suitcase went to Europe with me, where I walked from train stations to hotels. When you roll the packed suitcase on the sidewalk for long distances (1km), the rubber wheels heat up. When the wheels heat, they expand. When the wheels expand, they jam up in the caster. When a wheel jams up in the caster, it no longer free wheels, and you end up dragging the suitcase with a frozen wheel for many blocks. No fun.
I liked the styling of the suitcase, but it is not durable.
