I've just completed my second trip with R2D2. Yep, it's cute and innovative. It fits nicely into the overhead of an Embraer and is very stable (when the back wheels kick out). What's bugging me is that I feel like it wants to be pushed in front of you. When I do this the (reassuringly) chunky handle comes unclasped and the handle telescopes down. I really wish the locking mechanism was stronger. I wish this so much that I'm temped to take it apart and try to fix it myself. When I try to drag the suitcase the wheels inevitably are not harmonised (one out, the other in).
I really want this to be the greatest bag ever, but it isn't. I packed for 10 days of travel for work (not suits, but ties, slacks and dress shirts) and was amazed how wrinkle free things remained. Changing hotel rooms was a breeze because I didn't have to unpack each night.
I really just want that handle to stay extended. If anyone can help me get the bag to wrok better I'd really appreciate it.
