I travel weekly for my job and yes my luggage gets used heavily. My first/previous piece of Samsonite from the Palma series lasted roughly a year before failure (broken zipper pulls, tears in fabric, sticky wheels). I thought that was pretty good considering I had 60 plus airline segments. I decided to replace it with the Aspire GR8. It arrived with a defective inner mesh pouch that wasn't sewn to the zipper seam. I had to fly out in days and needed this new bag so I used it instead of dealing with the hassle of returning/repairing. Then, after one flight (two segments), the bag frame came out badly bent. I fly the same airline all the time and pack the same articles. In my opinion, the GR8 series being lightweight, will not hold up to airline handling. I do not recommend this series if you ever plan on checking a bag for air travel. If you plan on using it for carry on or ground travel, perhaps it's suitable.
