Solid Bag
PROS: Large but not too large
Wheels are bullet proof
Multiple handles
Integrated day pack
My wife and I used these bags for "backpacking" around the world for a year. We used all possible configurations at different times but mostly the std airport config - day pack slotted on top of pull handle or on back and wheeling around. We used Eagle Creek packing bags to sort gear within the large duffel space. We beat these up but they held up. We used them everyday for 367 days straight.

CONS: The waterproofing on all 4 bags peeled off the outside of the bags within a few months of use. So the bags got a bit ratty looking quickly and were not as good in the rain but the rest of the features of the bag would make me want to buy another one. Hope they fix the waterproofing coating because the bag would be bombproof with it.

Not bad.
PROS: Light weight.
Lifetime warranty
Great setup for my personal travel applications.
Fantastic handle
If you are not planning to use the rolling bag as a backpack, you can remove the assembly and lower straps to save bulkyness, and weight.... It also makes a decent additional compartment to store something else.

CONS: It's a bit soft, not rigid. A little too much like a duffle bag for my tastes. It'll make putting in an overhead painless but I'd prefer something a little less supple.
The zip on for the front pack is like a horseshoe over the top. So if you happen to have the backpack straps attached to the front pack, they will hang out of the bottom of the bag and get in the way of rolling etc. You can reach up in the gap and tuck them in the handle strap but it's not a perfect solution.
The wheels are a bit stiff. Might need some lube.
