Perfect size, great maneuverability. I travel every week and I can get plenty stuff in there and even bring small things home. I wish the middle stops were a little more secure; They sometimes drop unexpectedly if I put pressure on them. If they switched the side with a zipper cover to the top lid half, it would be better. I've only had it a few weeks, so I have no info on the longevity of the zipper yet. Fits in all bins so far, minus RJs of course. Overall, one of the better bags I've carried, and I've carried them for 20 years. I like the color, it has excellent functionality, and the price was right.

A wonderful overnighter, carry-on, and addition over the handle of my 21" Helium Breeze! This trolley tote is so well balanced that I thought it was lighter than the TravelPro I was replacing (I weighed them and the Delsey is actually 20% heavier). The main compartment completely opens for easy packing. The outside pocket swallows large magazines. The center pocket makes for a nice briefcase and laptop carrier. The two wheels roll very nicely. The handles are comfortable so the bag is pleasant to carry.

I have been a Delsey luggage fan and consumer for the past 20+ years and have greatly admired the quality, craftsmanship and durability with which suitcases have withstood the carelessness and "mis-handling" at the various airports around globe. With the upcoming extended European tour, I was looking for a lighter, more modern and up-to-date spinner trolley - and, this was it! It has everything I was looking for, and oh-so-very-light! Great, great line - highly recommend it!

I have taken this suitcase on two trips so far, and it has been great! It is light and easily transportable, but for both trips, I checked it at the airport rather than using it as a carry-on. It is very spacious, especially after utilizing the expansion, and while I have not had it for very long, I can tell that it will hold up quite nicely over time.

The case looks great and can hold more clothes than it looks. It only has one handle which is on top of the bag, but it is still pretty easy to carry since it's so small. I've traveled once with it and it seems like it will hold up well.

I recently took a trip to Australia with layovers in Los Angeles, Brisbane, Sydney and Dallas/Fort Worth. Knowing that my luggage was going to be unloaded and reloaded several times both there and back made me extremely nervous about the state in which my luggage would arrive. I needn't have worried. It arrived in the exact same condition (with the exception of some hardly noticeable surface scratches) as when I checked it at the beginning of my trip. I selected the purple to make it easily identifiable (which it was), and the 360 degree rotation wheels made travel through terminals an absolute breeze. The large zipper pocket came in handy to keep my shoes and laundry separate from my clean clothing. Would definitely recommend this suitcase, especially for someone who may be taking a long haul international flight for both the size and how lightweight it is.

I will break my comments into two sections; about the bag and about Zappos customer service. As for the bag I love the design and layout. I want to travel with one bag and often need to take a suit and or suit jacket, slacks and dress shoes, plus street clothes and workout stuff. This bag is well laid out to accommodate all of my needs but I would only rate the bag with three stars due to quality of construction. It is just a little too light in construction. I had to return my first back because a grommet pulled through and tore the fabric of the shoe compartment. I am expecting to have to replace this bag every few years but have not been able to find one that I like better. So the bag gets three stars. As for Zappos customer service I give them five stars! As mentioned above when I had to return my bag I geared myself up to the hassle typically involved in such things. I was prepared to have to pay for a new bag and then wait for a refund when they got the broken bag back. That was not the case at all. The customer service representative heard me out, got a replacement bag in the mail to me and allowed me to return the broken bag without needing a deposit or any additional funds. I will definitely order through Zappos again in the future. They are not just about shoes, or other stuff. Their product is actually great customer service!

Fabulous suitcase! Stylish, sturdy, secure, and has plenty of room for a 2 week trip (if you pack smart). Went through the airline and my luggage had a couple of surface marks, but nothing deep. It held up well and I easily spotted my luggage. Score!

The airlines are getting picky about the size of carry-on's lately so I shopped around for LIGHT luggage (I am petite and have a challenge putting bags into the overhead) that meet the new size requirements. I looked at the Lipault which was just slightly lighter but I am so glad I went with the Delsey. First, color. When they were unloading the gate checked luggage I could always easily find MY bag. And even the gate checked luggage gets tossed around, so I was glad I had the hard sides. Second, Design. As a previous reviewer mentioned the outside pocket space is part of the total space of the bag, but the outside pocket was perfect for my 1 quart liquid baggie for quick access and my travel itinerary. And somehow the bottom of the side bag seems to expand a bit to give you a little more space. Third, wheels. These wheels are sweet. They roll, turn, pivot and spin making it supper easy to have you luggage move any way you want it to. Over all, a great piece of luggage.

Bought it for daughter who was traveling back to Australia with her 35 lb 11 month old son. Suitcase was light and packed very well. Very easy to maneuver, which was a plus with baby in tow.

I bought the 26" in blue a couple years ago and love it so much, I just bought the identical 30" for a 2 week trip to Israel. I was thrilled to see the larger size available and still at a reasonable price. This luggage has no zippers to break, is pretty, and very durable. It will get scuffed up a little if you fly, but what luggage wouldn't. Also if it's pouring down rain and your luggage is sitting out on the tarmac waiting to be loaded on the plane, your clothes won't get drenched. You will not be sorry your purchased. Oh! How could I forgot...having 4 wheels, you don't have to tilt and pull behind you. Instead you can lightly push it along at your side--much less strenuous.

This is a great luggage! Not only is it light, but it is pretty sturdy as well, which made great for my trip to Japan & Boston. This is my first time with a snap-to-close-only luggage, so it took a bit to get used to, but I love it now. I also love the blue color - it makes it super easy to find when at the airport (no one will be taking your bag and getting away with this one haha). Also, I've received lots of compliments on it since I've had it, which doesn't hurt either! :)

I purchased the 25", the 29" and the international carry-on as my niece's graduation gift. Her feedback? GREAT color -- distinctive -- AND they nest nicely. From my own experience, I think she'll appreciate the way Delsey stands behind their product -- terrific warranty!

The lightest small carry on I have had. I have a Delsey of the same size but bought it 4yrs ago. Empty, it is heavy. This one I can pack a lot and still be able to lift it in the overhead of an airline with ease. I must say with the 4 wheels it is easy to move, but at times, it does fall over easy. It was great dealing with Zappos and had ordered another color and returned it with a return label they gave me. I got my refund!

Wanted this in black which was a lower price. Black was no longer available. Paid a higher price for the brown, but to my dismay they sent me a red case. Zappos was very accommodating sent me a return shipping label to return the red garment bag and immediately shipped the brown bag. When I inspected the brown bag, to my disappointment the zipper on the luggage was defective. I ended settling for the red case.

Bought two of these for my wife and me to take a 14 day trip to Alaska. Was pleased at the design and how much it can hold. Wife and her mother just got back from a 4 day cruise and they both used the one suitcase. Drawback is you can overpack and have to pay airlines fees. Good purchase.

Haven't actually traveled with these suitcases but will very soon and I am sure their color will help them stand out on the carousel! I bought them both for that and their lightweight since I am recovering from shoulder surgery. Decided to try a hard sided set this time and go more old school since they tend to last forever!

Five stars again for Zappos. 24 hours after ordering, my purchase is in my hands. How do they do that so consistently?! But this review is for the Delsey 19 inch Carry-on, not Zappos. I was worried that the 19" Delsey would be too small for my needs, mainly because the official Delsey video for the bag is so poorly done. If you watch the video, you will see that the angle/perspective of the bag to the arms of the man manipulating it is such that the bag looks to be the size of the man's forearm! It is an illusion. The bag is much bigger than it looks in the video. I have wanted a hard sided bag, but could not get past the lack of outside pockets. This bag has the outer section that enables quick access to full sized laptops and other things you might want quick access to. The padded laptop sleeve is even large enough for my company issued monstrosity of a laptop. This is the main reason this bag caught my eye. I wanted to have my laptop in the wheeled spinner, not on my shoulder. I have done a ton of research/shopping, and decided on this bag, and I do love it. But here are a couple of points I wanted to find in reviews but did not. The padded laptop sleeve is fine for carry on, but I would not trust it for checking. Although hard sided, there is still enough give to cause damage to a laptop should the bag be handled with even moderate roughness. The exterior compartment is great, because frankly, book style luggage is a pain when you want to shove something in or retrieve something quickly. Hard sided luggage without exterior pockets means finding a flat surface (like the floor!) to open the book and access its contents. But keep in mind that the interior as a whole is what it is. The outside pocket is not extra space. The division between the inside and outside compartments is fabric, so if you fully stuff the inside, there may be very little room for much in the outside. Spot on design! Many, if not most bags have zippered expansion forward of the wheel base, which messes with the center of gravity and causes the bag to fall forward. This bag expands between the forward and aft wheels, so it maintains stability when expanded. I love that. I have not yet traveled with this bag, so I cannot rate it for long-term durability. But I am happy with the packability of it. And yes, the wheels feel smooth and easy. I am accustomed to TravelPro and Samsonite soft sided, so the lack of pockets, pockets, everywhere pockets will take some getting used to, but this should not be a problem since I will always have my smaller shoulder bag at all times. And I will always carry a shoulder bag large enough for my laptop just in case I am forced to check my Delsey Carry on.

Just received my new luggage and I can't wait to book a flight and try it out. Since I have yet to fully field-test it yet, this review is more about aesthetics. My husband and I bought two of these bags, one in blue and one in titanium. The colors are beautiful and quite a bit darker than they appear in the photos -- a plus for me. I was worried that the titanium would be too "silver" but it's more of a dark grey. The blue is a deep dark blue. Very lightweight. Construction seems very sturdy. Zippers strong. Clever design throughout. Picked this one over other models because of the fold out front compartment, which has a laptop sleeve inside. Great for all the items one would want to easily access. The zipper design for the 2" expanding section is well designed and has a different colored zipper to easily identify. The wheels appear very sturdy and do roll like butter. It's like a little R2D2 (Star Wars reference for you young readers). I've been wanting a carry-on bag in order to get motivated to start traveling lighter. Check out the Delsey.com website surprise to see that they appear to be a rather chic French company. They have some good "packing tips" videos as well. More expensive hardshell bags ($500+ from what I've researched) have figured out how not to waste internal space with the frame required by the collapsing handle. But for this great price, the purchase was a no-brainer. As soon as we take these on the road, I'll write another review. I also bought (to compare) the Patagonia MLC 45L (totally opposite consideration, since it's a soft bag with hidden backpack straps). That's the bag I'd get for a non-wheel option for more rugged international travel. But this bag is totally civilized and stylish!

The separate zip pocket for carrying an iPad or Tablet is the ideal design. The size is small enough to please the budget European airlines. The light weight & strength of the exterior will keep it useful and long-lasting.
