I don't know what I ever did before spinning luggage!! It is so much easier to handle my carry-on bag, something I always do to prevent standing in lines after my flight waiting for luggage that might be damaged or lost (I've had both happen). Sometimes I'm guilty of just standing in a boarding line and spin, spin, spin!! I can usually fit anything I need in this 21" Liz Claiborne bright red suitcase. I find it lightweight and so easy to manuever all around traffic when in a hurry between flights. I can usually get it in the overhead bin without asking for help. The outside material has held up very well and the interior is roomy with pockets for smaller items. I can get the handle up and down with ease and usually strap my laptop case over it with no problem. I would highly recommend this suitcase to the busy traveler who is in a hurry after a flight so you can head right out to the rental car!!
