I aleady owned the cabin-sized version of this suitcase with which I am delighted. I used it on a recent short visit to Paris, when it performed admirably. I have purchased this - its bigger brother, for a longer trip later this Summer. The main reason for buying this larger version is its simplicity, it has a large main compartment with a small zipped mesh pocket down one side. The underside of the lid has a another zipped mesh pocket which is large enough to hold a number of folded shirts. In addition there is a flat unpadded pocket on the outside of the lid for documents/magazines etc. this pocket is probably unsuitable for a laptop since there is no protective padding. This isn't an issue for me. There is also a draw-string bag which I imagine is for shoes or laundry. I use it for the plethora of cables/chargers that one inevitably travels with these days, but it could be put to any number of uses.
It is very light in weight and should make the best use of airline baggage allowances. It appears to be well made as one would expect from Samsonite. The only possible downside is that it does not expand, so no buying new clothes whilst away on holiday!!
