PROS: The blue and yellow colors are attractive and easily identifiable in the luggage carousel. I used this piece for a European trip and it actually fit the European requirements for carry on luggage (if you don't use the expansion option) which are smaller than US airline requirements. That saved me close to $100 on one flight.
CONS: Multi-directional wheels would be an improvement if the luggage could be engineered to still meet the international requirements.

Price / Value
PROS: My husband, son and I just got back from Hawaii and each of us had our own carry-on Spinnaker. This luggage is not only attractive (the blue/yellow is gorgeous, we received SO many compliments on them!) but they are EXCELLENT quality for the price! The handles were very sturdy, durable fabric, the wheels rolled smoothly, the zippers were easy to open and close, expandable option is great, loved the front pockets for easy access to your zip-locked toiletries that you have to take out for TSA, most importantly, the luggage is lightweight! We each packed them to the rim (even used the expandable option) and each bag still weighed under 25lbs. (the weight limit for carry-ons). Love love love this luggage!!
CONS: This isn't really a con (well, in my case it wasn't) but the luggage is slightly darker in person than shown on the website, but I thought that was a good thing.
