Looks sturdier than it is.. Airline Bagage Handlers are stronger
August 6, 2012
Got this because I needed a decent travel bag as my previous one was ripped to shreds by an airline. Thougth I'd try this one since it seems pretty sturdy. After the very first flight, the main Zipper was torn out from top edge of the bag. Instead of going thru the hassel of sending it back etc, I figured that was easy to fix, and I put the zipper back together and sewed the end so that it wouldn't rip out again. Very next flight, one of the skids along the bottom got ripped off the bag. .. Filed for damages with the airline. Shouldn't have to deal with these problems, particularly the first one, that was workmanship on the zipper.
Pros:Large bag, lots of room (but maybe not long enought for a full length mens driver) Inliner wheels roll nicely, Straps to secure bag shut are good. Padding is good. Material is strong
Cons:Zipper not well attached to bag
Plastic clasps on straps can be cracked
Skids only attached woth a couple of rivets and are easily ripped off the bag by airline equipment
