    A rare merchandise review for moi!

    I purchased on Amazon for $93.75 (free 2-day shipping with Prime).

    Adressing some of the criticism:

    1.) Capacity: I found the bag to offer plenty of capacity (as much if not more than an extra large hard suitcase) with the added flexibility of the soft top. I am a big guy, used this one bag for a 2-week international trip and tend to over pack!

    2.) The handle length: I am 6’3 and as a result of the length of the bag (AKA height when rolling) found the handle extension to be fine

    Finally, I wrapped up some fragile items on the return and they came through without issue.

    At the right price an excellent alternative to a traditional hard case.

    This suitcase is gigantic. You really should measure it before buying as Samsonite also sells a 30″ one that I may have preferred…but my goal was to get a huge suitcase to fulfill the longer trips. The handle may look silly extending 6-9″ from the suitcase but it makes all the difference in this being an easy to pull suitcase that wont nip at your heels.

    I recently traveled across the country for 9 days, brought 3 pairs of shoes and clothing for various weather and it wasn’t even full. I had room to buy more clothes and bring back two gifts, one in a fairly substantial box (and it still wasn’t ‘full’).

    The suitcase itself isn’t too heavy and both there and back I managed to keep it under the oversize weight restriction for the airlines I was flying. After being checked both ways it still looks brand new.

    Edit 12/19/2013:
    Suitcase has been with me for a few more flights and is still in excellent shape. Just wanted to also point out that the product image currently attached with this showing it open with clothing inside it is laughably misleading. The shoes in that picture would have to be clown shoes to take up that much space. I wonder if that image is reused from the smaller model of this suitcase…
