Product Questions
Q:
Do the wheels move out with the 2 inch expansion or stay with the original base?
A:
The wheels would not expand with the Rick Steves 21" Roll-Aboard. - Answered by Makenzie on October 4, 2012
Q:
Will this bag stand on it's own? Is the 21 inches including the wheels?
A:
Yes, the Rick Steves 21" Roll-Aboard will stand up on it's own. Also the listed dimensions of 21" x 14" x 9" already include the wheels. - Answered by Emma on May 22, 2012
Q:
Do the wheels swivel 360 degrees?
A:
No, the Rick Steves 21" Roll-Aboard only has two wheels that do not swivel. This item is meant to be pull behind you. - Answered by Emma on January 17, 2012
Q:
Does this bag fit in with most European airlines, like Air France, KLM or SAS?
A:
Most international airlines will take bags under 22" so this bag should fit most international airlines. You will want to call your airline ahead of time to make sure. - Answered by Heather on June 8, 2011
Q:
What are the cubic inches for the 21" please
A:
The Rick Steves 21" Roll-Aboard has 2,646 cubic inches. - Answered by Kyle on April 11, 2011
Q:
Will it fit "wheels in" in the majority of US planes?
A:
I would not be able to guarantee that it would. With the linear inches, it is considered a carry-on with the general guidelines we are provided with from the airlines. The storage bins will vary based on the plane size and airline, so I would recommend contacting the airline regarding that question. - Answered by Kyle on April 27, 2011
Q:
What does this bag weigh?
A:
This bag weighs 7.5 pounds. - Answered by Kyle on July 26, 2011

Pros: Small enough to handle by myself. Easy to roll and carry on.....or....to check on if I choose. I learned how to travel light by Rick Steves in 1994. Since we have traveled the world many times using one suitcase each. Ann McAlpine also taught me packing tips a few years ago. I am 68 now and I can still travel well with one light piece of luggage.

Cons: The new luggage is a tiny bit narrower than my old bag so I will see if everything will fit as well on my next trip next month. The zipper finally died and the bottom edge was frayed on my old Rick Steves luggage so I had to replace it.

Pros: Great size and weight. Long handle is a big plus and it has a separate pocket for PC. Love the mesh bags.

Cons: Does tip if you load it using the expandable zipper space. We took 2 to Europe and then a trip to New Zealand. Both did well in Europe on numerous trains. One didn't survive the return on NZ trip - broken zipper on expandable portion and 8" rip/gap along regular zipper. The other now has a handle that won't extend all the way. 3 years old.

Pros: Easy to organize items because of special sections available. Rolls well and doesn't tip.

Cons: If you add much to the outside pouches the bag won't fit in the overhead bin so be careful.

Pros: This bag is so much lighter than my old TravelPro, and it made my 3 week trip in Europe via metro,tram and train a breeze and I am 60 years old! It held all my clothes and I could even manage it in the overhead of the airplame by myself. I loved it! I travel by plane at least twice a month and this bag makes traveling so much easier for me.

Cons: It does appear to be less durable than my TravelPro, but I don't care, I will just buy another one....the difference in weight is that significant.

Pros: Light enough to make it under the tough Lufthansa weight limit with clothing for a 3 week trip. Fits nicely in overheads of even Russian-built planes. Outside pockets just about right in size and location.

Cons: Like others, I wonder how long the telescoping handle will hold up. It is not nearly as solid as my larger TravelPro. I purposely babied it going over rough streets and terrain and didn't have any trouble on the three week journey. Time will tell.

Pros: If this bag can handle South American baggage handler's it can handle anything! They tried to trash my bag. Came close but did not. Cleans up with a little soap and water. Love the out side pockets.

Cons: No.

Pros: Long handle -most roller bags have a too-short handle you can kick them when you walk.
Light weight - more allowance for your stuff and less wasted on bag. Way lighter than many bags of similar size.

Cons: Handle durability worries me. It seems a bit flimsy. Plastic grommet between telescoping sections has already worked it's way out on maiden voyage and handle wouldn't collapse until it was re-inserted.
Wall thickness; sides of bag are kind of thick, which detracts from interior room. It seems like a thinner stiffener solution could have been found.

Pros: I love everything about this product. It is the second one I own. Made it through 4 months in Europe, 2 years in New Zealand and back to the states. I even lent it to a friend going to Europe because I knew it would not get ruined. It is lightweight, durable and user friendly. Enjoy

Cons: Everyone should have one.

Pros: I liked everything. For its weight and size, it works well. I've only used it on one trip so far as carry-on luggage, and cannot really determine durability at this point, but I had no problems and it fit well into the overhead compartments. It is very well-designed.

Cons: So far, so good. As long as it holds up, there are no cons.
