The bag is just adorable. The bag seems relatively well made and has convenient compartments, including a handy internal zipper compartment perfect for jewelry, etc. I was even surprised that the bag came with a clear plastic tote that snaps in, which would be useful for toiletries, etc. I assume one would have to put one's quart bag inside that and pull it out for inspection, but other non-liquid toiletries could also go in the large clear bag and it seems easy enough to get in/out. I have three concerns which leave me unable to give the bag a full five stars. a) the plastic-y smell is really strong. I assume this is probably a "water repellant" coating causing the stink, but it's strong and doesn't seem to fade even after airing the bags out for a few days. It's not a deal breaker for me, but for those who are smell sensitive, it definitely might be. b) The handle feels very, very fragile. It hasn't broken (yet?) but I haven't toted the bag from airport to airport yet, I've only taken it for a "test drive" around my house. c) Dimensions are not as advertised. It is advertised as a 21" bag, but even on the tag it says 22"X14"X9.5" - and really, the 9.5 is more like 10.5 if you put anything at all in the front pouch. (Most airlines seem to have gone to 22X14X9) - Even if I keep the bag squishy and pray for the best, I'm concerned that the bag may not make the persnickety requirements of each airline. We'll see. If I have issues I may have to write a supplemental and knock another star off. We'll see. Otherwise, I guess I'll be grateful the bag is so big and roomy!
I love it!

I've been amazed how much stuff I can get in this bag, including a week's worth of summer clothes and toiletries. I've had it for a little over a year and have carried it on flights with United Airlines, Air Tran, Frontier, and American Airlines. The only time I had to gate check it due to its size was when I flew a small Embraer jet that had tiny overhead compartments and everyone else had to check anything larger than a laptop bag, as well. The adjustable handle relieves a lot of the pressure on your arm experienced with other bags that you have to tilt to roll, and the spinner wheels are great! Can't think of a thing I'd change about this bag, except that I want more! Came to the site today to buy two more sizes!
Great luggage, stylish patterns, great set!

We bought two of these for our grand daughters. They love the polka pots and the ease of use. They always have them when they come to visit.

I hesitate to give it a 5 star rating only because I don't know how it will hold up on wear in tear in 3 years or more. So far its gorgeous and extremely maneuverable!

I ordered this carry-on luggage for my pre-teen daughter. Although she hasn't used it yet, she absolutely loves it, especially because it is a "spinner" and that is exactly what she wanted. Also, the colors (we ordered the black and pink polka dots) are vibrant and look just like the picture. More importantly, it looks sturdy and well made and is a perfect size for travel.

Love the dots. Easy to spot at airport baggage claim. Nice and roomy. I can really pack a lot into the suitcase.
roomy but not sturdy
Sandi Walden from Tennessee
This suitcase is easy to spot at baggage claim & is roomy enough for a long trip. However, the spinners wheels don't work as well in all directions-I couldn't move it sideways. Also, the handle is very temperamental. It is very loose & would pop into the tilted position too often & wouldn't want to lower.
