PROS: Love the spinner wheels! Love that you can carry it by the double straps to carry up steps. I carry oxygen every day with my lunch and drinks in the large compartment. The front section is great for my iPad. Great to walk with it next to your side. Shoulder strap is very convenient for going up steps.
CONS: Oxygen tank is about 2 inches too tall so I cannot close the top. Handle does not lock into place, if you try to drag it , it is too far behind you and gets hung up on corners.

Price / Value
So far, so good.
PROS: I've only had the case for a week, but so far I am loving it. It has enough space for my 'rolling office' and is very easily maneuverable! I am considering purchasing the matching carry-on . . .
CONS: The only con I have right now is it is a little tough to zip across the top as it folds -- but I can live with this.
