Bought because I was travelling with Ryanair with hand luggage only and have had problems with them in the past. This case was the perfect fit for the basket and held enough to last me a week. I managed to fit in 3 maxi dresses, 1 shorter dress, 2 long skirts, 1 pair of trousers, 7 tops, 3 bras, 9 pairs of knickers, beach towel, beach bag, 2 bikinis, 2 sarongs, 2 pairs of wedge sandals, 2 books, adaptor, luggage scales, phone charger, jewellery, basic toiletries and makeup, a small handbag and my see through bag of liquids!!! On the way back I had 200 cigarettes, a 90ml bottle of perfume and a few other small bits and pieces and it still weighed less than 10 kilos and fitted into the basket with ease. It didn't fall to bits as in other reviews and wheeled along fine. It didn't always stand on its own but that wasn't a big deal.
