edit! Good things did come in small packages but then broke...

Update Oct 2014:
Downgrading my star rating. A wheel broke - looks like an axel came out. Only noticed this when packing for a trip and didn't have time to get a replacement so had to drag it around. Not expected after use only about 6 times so perhaps was a faulty one. Rest of the suitcase is still in good nick. The company did say they would send me a replacement but 4 weeks later it hadn't arrived, after a follow up email they have now said they will refund me. I didn't pay the current price of £50, I paid £35 ish I think so good for that price but I'd be cross at £50. Let's see whether the refund comes through...
Previous review from 2012 :
Bought this as didn't want to pay the fee for checking in a bag with easy jet for a weeks holiday (the fee was about half the cost of the bag and figured I'd be able to use the bag loads!). Arrived quickly and I was impressed with the quality upon opening. The fabric, zips, handle and wheels are all good quality, much better than I expected for the price. Inside there are straps for securing (and possibly squashing) the contents, and a zipped internal mesh pocket on the 'lid'. Pocket on the outside fitted my laptop with room to spare for a book. Also great is the expander zip. I opened it in order to easily shut my case, then it was easier to zip close the expander to reduce the size. Others on my trip didn't believe it was approved hand luggage because it looked so roomy so I felt very smug putting it into the metal size checker thing at the airport! I've used it for several weekend trips since, has definitely been a very useful purchase for me.
