Pros Exceptional compression, deceptively large capacity, professional design, smooth and simpleMagnetically aligned wheels, great organization, excellent capacity, professional styleWheels magnetically aligned, solid design and organization, fair priceTons of organizational features, excellent bag add-on straps, durably builtExpandable, affordable, zippered internal divider
Cons Minimal features, only two wheels, expensiveEasy to over pack, few color optionsEasy to over pack, uneven tapered shapeLoud wheels, extremely challenging zippers, "techy" lookQuestionable construction, difficult to wheel
Bottom Line An extremely durable option that fits an impressive amount of stuffFor the frequent traveler, this is an extremely durable bag made to withstand thousands of miles flownThis 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 zippersLow in price, this expandable model is also low in durability and rolls poorly
