Quality isn't what it used to be
Reviewed in the United States on July 19, 2019
On average I fly between 120k and 150k miles per year. I have had 2 of these bags in the past 5-6 years and have loved them. Each of those first 2 bags lasted roughly 2.5 years which with my amount of travel is pretty darn good for a suitcase in the $60-70 range.
A few months ago it was about time to replace again and I went ahead and ordered another identical model. That first bag lasted 1 trip and the cloth around the zipper ripped from where it connects to the hard case. I figured I maybe had a one off bad one and went ahead and got a 2nd. That one lasted 3 trips before the same happened, but the lining was already falling out on the 2nd as well.
These were 2 brand new bags that couldn't even make a combined total of 4 trips in the course of about 6 weeks. I'm not sure what's changed, but the quality clearly isn't what it used to be and I was forced to find a different suitcase. My advice to those who have had these in the past and are looking to replace it with another identical one -- stay away, you will be very disappointed.
