An excellent idea, I loved this at first - roomy and easy to store under my bed. Then I went to New York. When the suitcase arrived the zip had been torn away from the material. Luckily nothing had fallen out. I was only there for a weekend and didn't want to waste time luggage shopping so bodged it shut with reinforced tape and in vast amount of safety pins. It survived the return journey. I was still happy with its performance otherwise and so had the zip repaired.
Then I went to South America. It survived several flights until we parted ways: I went to Rio, my suitcase went to Sao Paulo. When it finally got sent to me I found the cause for this was the handle to which the luggage flight tag was attached had been torn away. Thankfully I'd attached destination info to one of the other handles as a backup so it didn't get lost entirely.
So, yeah. I had high hopes for this and the design was nice, I loved the fold away function, but in practice it really let me down. I'm just thankful it only inconvenienced me and I didn't actually lose my belongings entirely.
