    Nice idea, bad engineering.
    February 25, 2013
    I bought this suitcase together with the 21' carryon (which is a disaster).

    This suitcase rolls very well, you can easily turn it in circles and around corners, but it can not roll sideways (through a narrow passage, for instance), since the two large wheels don't spin.

    I loved the closet-like interior at first sight, but now it has become a nightmare. Every time I open my suitcase after a flight, the shelves have collapsed, and my previously neatly folded clothes are squished together in one big pile. The shelves are held up by simple buttons, which don't carry the weight at all. A suitcase this size should definitely hold the normal maximum weight allowed by most airlines. Since each of the shelves can't hold their respective portion of the 50 lb total weight, the suitcase is not serving its purpose.

    I wish I hadn't bought this suitcase.

    Unimpressed. Period.
    February 25, 2013
    I was so excited when I bought this suitcase and its larger brother, the 25'. It rolls fairly nicely, but that's about it.

    The two large wheels seem to be unevenly placed, and one of them almost never folds in when I try to place the suitcase in an overhead compartment. I normally have to try 3-4 times before I finally - with help from someone seated close by - manage to hold the wheels in place (manually) and push the suitcase into position simultaneously. With the wheel(s) unfolded, the suitcase does not fit in the overhead compartment.

    The telescope handle collapses every few seconds when I push the suitcase in front of me (which is the only way it feels normal to push it), and this is incredibly annoying. It happens even if I apply virtually no pressure to it at all.

    It appears to me as if Samsonite forgot to test this suitcase on frequent or even ordinary travelers before selling them at hundreds of dollars in stores.

    Please don't buy this item.
