I was going to give this a 4.5 star review, but then on trip #3, the zipper broke, Luckily I was able to make it work in one direction but the second zipper going the opposite direction would no longer do anything.
I also don't LOVE the fact that the expansion zipper expands the left side of the suitcase (left when open and looking at both halves) This may not seem like a big deal to some people, but if you need to expand the zipper to close the bag, you most likely need the opposite side of the bag to be expandable, not the side that zips closed to keep things inside when the bag is opened. I really can't think of a better way to describe this. but if you buy something on your way home and need to throw it in the bag, you are probably not going to make it fit inside the left side with the protected mesh zipper side. It is most likely going under the crisscross zippered side. and if it wont close, you just loosed the expansion zipper.
Sorry, I have no idea what you call that side of the suitcase, but this is a big deal for me as I travel for work 3-4 time a month.
