Light but flimsy

published

On its maiden voyage over to the US the handle has already become jammed and won't come up. When I opened up the bag to look at this, the metal housing had curved inwards. Great idea because of how light the bag is but if the one part of the frame is going to get out of shape from one journey and the usual throwing around luggage gets then not worth the money.

I love it!

published

We first purchased the cabin bag, then the medium and now also large 72 hours and love them. I have not had any handle issues described here, the button is slightly raised but I don't find I accidentally close it as it is in the palm of the land not fingers.

These bags have clocked up a lot of miles, Australia - Europe twice, domestic flights and to the US now to Asia and they still look new. The cabin bag especially has been excellent, the light weight makes it effortless to travel for a weekend with carry on only.

Good But The Handle Button Is Too Sensitive

published

I love this with all its compartments. I particularly love its lightness (however I have still filled it up). Two disappointing aspects: the button to fold down the handle is raised and therefore really easy tide press and the handle folds unexpectedly. The second aspect: no laptop compartment, I solved by using a laptop sleeve I've had for years.

Update April 2016 this will be lucky to last the financial year

Lightweight but flimsy, a poor choice

published

On the second trip with the Samsonite 78 Hours lightweight suitcase the extendable handle was bent inwards, could straighten it with my hands but it kinked and is now permanently stuck. Flimsy construction. I travel a lot and buy a new suitcase every few years, this one was a poor choice.
