I bought one of these for my girlfriend who is Cabin Crew for a major international airline, so you can imagine it has had serious use. In reply to one of the negative reviews on here you get what you pay for, if you expect lifetime guarantees or warrantys you have to pay for them. 5-8 x the price of this case will get you that. The expandable function allows for short trips and a bit of shopping to bring home, the lock stopped working after a year but we just bought a TSA padlock, the handle got damaged by the baggage handlers, this can not be blamed in any way on the manufacturer, and customer service asked for pictures and could not have been more helpful. This was after 2 years of regular heavy use. Overall it is incredible value for money and has served her well. It is continuing to do so. I can not recommend this company highly enough despite some petty niggles with the case. Finally before I write this last bit, please know I have no connection with the company other than being a customer/user., were they to increase the quality of the components like wheels, locks or handles etc, and not by much really, this would rival Tumi, Samsonite and Briggs and Riley. It's an economy product but well supported and has served us so well. I will definately buy from them again.

I travel much. My partner travels much. Usually short trips with various airlines. Never with haul luggage. Only with carry on luggage. So I wanted to buy a nice hard-side cabin luggage which fits all airline restrictions. So max 55cm is absolutely necessary!
This one is bigger, because they.. erm... "forgot" to measure the handle.. size is more like 57x35x20. Bye bye - no cabin luggage at Ryanair, easyJet and friends.
Unfortunately I only found out at the airport. And unfortunately you see a lot of scratch marks very fast with normal use. So: I already used it and wouldn't get my full price back. And adding the shipping back to Germany I would most likely get nothing back.
well, on the pro side: they add for free a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag (for liquids, to deal with the stupid airport restrictions).

Like most German products, the suitcase is strong and seems resistant. Furthermore, the colour is super cool and the overall look and details are great. Definitely worth the money.
If you have the storage space for all 3 sizes then I would recommend to take advantage of the fantastic bargain of buying all 3 sizes for £139.00. Unfortunately, due to lack of storage I could not take advantage of the offer and ended up spending almost as much just for 2 suitcases.They arrived only 3 days after placing the order; much, much earlier than expected. The suitcase is pretty spacious and expandable; a massive plus feature, for those like me, who always buy far too many souvenirs during their trips. Though I have not tested it on a trip yet so far I am pretty impressed.

Surprisingly roomy. It's carry on size (Europe) and I can get a week's clothes and shoes in it. It's not super strong, but I've checked it a few times now with no damage and the zippers have held fast. The wheels are delicate so you can't bash it over steps (not that you should do that with any luggage) and don't let your kids sit on it. It's not a high-end case, the wheels are not as smooth or agile as my Samsung but the case was a FRACTION of the price, so it's seriously good value. One consideration is that it's just got the one opening and it has no external pockets so taking it through security, as a carry on, can be challenging if you're not a neat packer.

We bought two of these in July but unfortunately the poor build quality means that one of the handle of one of the cases has already broken. The handles for both cases seemed quite flimsy and loose from the start but we soon couldn't move the handle on one of the cases any longer. When rolling the case along, the handle broke off on one side and now it's unusable after only 5 months. The other suitcase is still going but the handle is already showing the same problems. I would be very reluctant to buy this brand again and will search for better quality in the future.

My second round of buying this brand. the wheels fail every time. I love the brand , but this replacement case was a different production completely. it was clearly made by a new factory and the quality has gone down. they need to properly test their products. the look great but if you want something to use week in weke out spend more money. for occasional use its fine. and dont load it too heavily it simply wont support it , wont wheel and the handle doesnt go back in...... the large case i bought from them broke too. Sad times.

Well designed and manufactured case, meets exacting Air France dimensions, good service from supplier.

HOWEVER, if you want the dark blue one, DO NOT trust the Amazon picture which is dark blue but described as Waldgrun and even my German is good enough to suspect that is actually dark green and no it's extremely difficult to point out to Amazon they need to change their photo of the otherwise 'blue' case.

This case does NOT come with the TSA lock type as advertised and shown in pictures. Which was the reason why I ordered this case in the first place. Very disappointed. This is my second HAUPTSTADTKOFFER case, I also have the 63cm and other than the old lock type these cases are great. One star for false advertising!
