Pros Expandable, affordable, zippered internal dividerMagnetically aligned wheels, great organization, excellent capacity, professional styleExceptional compression, deceptively large capacity, professional design, smooth and simpleWheels magnetically aligned, solid design and organization, fair priceTons of organizational features, excellent bag add-on straps, durably built
Cons Poor construction, difficult to wheelEasy to over pack, few color optionsMinimal features, only two wheels, expensiveEasy to over pack, uneven tapered shapeLoud wheels, extremely challenging zippers, "techy" look
Bottom Line Low in price, this expandable model is also low in durability and rolls poorlyFor the frequent traveler, this is an extremely durable bag made to withstand thousands of miles flownAn extremely durable option that fits an impressive amount of stuffThis carry-on is ready for round the world action at a price that leaves room for a few in-flight beveragesThis unique, feature-laced model is marred by tough-to-use zippers
