I have owned similar Samsonite products in the past, and loved those. I wish I could say the same about this new version.
First of all, it is advertised as a push in front product. It does fine, until it gets a small indent or bump--such as one gets at the end of a moving walk-way in airports, or at the end of an escalator. In these cases, the cart stops rolling, and I have nearly tripped over the bag. DANGEROUS.
My second grips is that the handle bar does not "latch" or lock securely while the handle bar is up. This causes problems while pushing the bag along.
I would like to return--but was told that Samsonite would not take the product after the first use. Well, I only discovered these issues AFTER I tried using the bag.
