- 72 hours 71cm Spinner
Bought from Strandbags. The handle got stuck after the 1st trip. I took it back and was told that's caused by mishandling therefore not covered by warranty. I had other luggages together with it on the same trip. Unfortunately it seems some airport luggage staff specially picked this Samsonite case and mishandled it! Never buy Samsonite again.
I was so hopeful. It had a great weight, volume, manoeuvrability, expandability and then the zipper failed and popped open 3 times on the first use. I took it back to Myers and they refunded and I purchased a Samsonite Blite 3 instead. I hope it will be a better choice. I chose this one to replace it as it had a double wheel and appeared to feel more stable.
I would say it is an OK case, been using it for a while, not so fancy but OK. Firm and don't get dirty easily. Which is fine to travel with.

Light but flimsy
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.
Lightweight but flimsy, a poor choice
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.
