PROS: The Helium is good. It is strong and holds up under a lot of abuse by the airlines, traveling in general, and me. It moves well on the four wheels. It closes easily for me and locks well.
CONS: As stated by others, Delsey really dropped the ball by not having an inside zippered flap. There really is need for one on the more shallow side so that when you flip that side over to close it all up, your things do not slide or drop out. The two little straps just do not do it. I will try to rig up something for mine. It is silly to not have such a flap and one would think that the Delsey designers would clearly already know this....but! It is not a reason to NOT get the piece but if you do a lot of traveling (as I do in China, Australia etc.) it will be a real irritant.

PROS: Being a Delsey user for several years, I find their products to be very reliable. They can take the rigors of the road daily for several years with minimum wear and tear and still look stylish.
CONS: Needs an inside cover for the top half. The previous models I've used had this, even the ability to rack a suit.
Getting Delsey to effect repairs is laughable. Better to find your own repair store.

PROS: The appearance is great. The colors are bright and easy to see when you need to pick it out on the conveyor belt. i also love the swivel wheels so it is easy to move around in countries where they still have old sidewalks and they are quite not even.
CONS: I expected the material to be more harder since it is a hardside. The shell sinks a bit when something is on top.

PROS: I have used on a rather lengthy trip and have had no problems. Of course, some scratching, but I love that there's nothing to tear, rip or catch on. Packs solidly, and is light. Great!

PROS: It is light weight and has NO ZIPPER to break or to be opened! Would you believe during my first airline trip with this bag, it was opened by TSA? They left a note. Either they saw some tools I had to work on my hurricane damaged house or it was random. I will never know. I was concerned that they would not know how to open the flip-locks on the ends. They work like the flip lock, but it is not operated by a combination. You have to turn a small "dial" that looks like a circle with a line through it. You pinch the raised "line" and turn it clockwise to lock in place, and the opposite to open it. I'm glad TSA figured that one out.
CONS: It needs a full cover that holds one side of items into place so you can flip the suitcase closed. On my first try, all the small stuff fell out as I closed it and had to tuck items in the middle of the side rather than around the edges as I have been doing in the past.

PROS: I like the design and the aesthetic of it. Have not used it yet, for my trip is in the summer (three weeks in Europe!!!) We shall put it to the test then. Looks great and seems durable now. Was shipped super fast too.
CONS: None at the moment.

PROS: I own gorgeous Hartman luggage, all sizes and Samsonite, all sizes. These are only good for auto travel these days unless you are inviting to have someone steal your luggage and contents. Travel used to be a time to pack the whole wardrobe and pretend you were a Princess. Well, no more 50lb cases with bagage allowance of 50lbs. This yellow case follows you effortlessly, weighs almost nothing, is roomy, contents are protected from cuts and drops, the yellow color makes it a breeze to find in bagage and no one dares grab something so easily caught. It also matches my yellow Luggie electric scooter and black and yellow luggage strap. This is so easy to move I can do it while using my walker. I love it!
CONS: This is not gorgeous- but it is durable, roomy, cute and a conversation piece.

PROS: No Zippers! All my other suitcases have been severely damaged by airport staff. From ripping off zipper pockets to the plastic support legs so they don't stand up any more.
CONS: Will have to wait to see how it does with airport staff. I suppose they could still break off the spinner wheels?

PROS: Very durable...I loved the multiple latches to secure it from opening....The size was perfect and I loved the vibrant color.it made it super easy to find
CONS: No large inside pocket...only a very small one on the side.

PROS: I am tired of baggage handlers tearing up my bags. We bought nice, new bags 5years ago. All 5 bags have had the zipper "pulls" torn off. I believe these will solve that problem. They look nice, are sturdy and lightweight. Gonna try em out in September.

PROS: It is one of the rare find with hinges and flip-lock rather than zipper. The lime color I pick make it easy to be located at the airport. The whole suitcase weighs about 9 pounds. The spinner wheels seem to work well. But I have not taken it on a trip yet so I cannot comment on its durability.
CONS: The elastic straps inside look flimsy. No built-in outside supports to allow the suitcase to stand on its side. It can only stand upright on the spinner wheels.

PROS: Convenient size, color, sturdy and a spinner.
