    This review is from: Samsonite Luggage L.i.f.t. Carry-On Wheeled Garment Bag (Apparel)
    When I was looking for a carry-on suit case I wanted: a garment bag, a bag that would fit in nearly all overhead bins, and a bag that was light and fully functional. This bag met all of my basic requirements and has proven to be a great asset in my travels. I recently completed a 7 day business trip where I had 6 interviews nearly back-to-back-to-back and this bag helped me get through it. I was comfortably able to pack my:
    – Suit
    – Dress shirt x 2
    – Dress slacks
    – Dress sweaters x 2
    – Dress shoes
    – Belt
    – Undershirts x 4
    – Socks and underwear
    – Shoe shining tools
    – Toiletries

    A 7 day cross-country business trip is definitely pushing the limits of this carry-on bag, but my airtight schedule required that I would not have to check a bag and this one made it possible. My bag successfully made it on all but the small regional jets, where I would simply have to check the bag plane-side. My suit and dress shirts would get fairly wrinkled when packing this much stuff in my bag, but a quick steam by hanging them up in the bathroom with a hot shower running made it easy to avoid ironing. The most annoying thing about this bag would have to be the lack of easy access to the toiletries compartment for the stupid TSA security requirements. Other than that, I absolutely love this bag and it has been a workhorse for me in recent months. Would definitely buy again.

    Not what it used to be., March 29, 2013

    My last Samsonite garment bag was purchased in 1980, and just broke, after a lifetime of businees travel. It did not have wheels, so I was happy to replace it. It was the stitching that finally gave way. Fair enough, since I packed that bag with everything from wingtips to wine.. Never, never, never a problem. It was indestructible. So, I insisted on a new Sampsonite. This time with wheels, yeah! Well this thing is not like the old ones. The exterior canvas is ok, and the design acceptable, but every piece of hardware and every zipper is poorly constucted: plastic and fake metal. Nothing is oversized for easy use ; nothing to prevent problems on the run. Even the hook to put the thing on the back of a door will cut your hand it is so thin, and the chain so flimsy, it will surely break. I tried to pack it full, and plastic zippers would not close the thing. I pulled on the zipper, and the metal broke off in my hand, When trying to close it, the zipper folds over the fabric and jams. You see, some accountant somewhere has engineered this to use the smallest, thinnest, cheapest materials possible. Buy this if you want, but plan on pampering it, and plan on it not being around in five years. It did function for my recent trip, and may be about as good as luggage gets these days. So, that is why the 3 stars.

    Took this on two weekend trips where I needed one suit and space to pack a couple of dresses for my girlfriend. We’re airline employees and almost never check bags. This worked perfectly as a carry on on United, JetBlue, and Southwest.
